Transport for the funeral service
If you’re arranging a funeral for a loved one, transport is likely to be one of your top considerations. Choosing a vehicle to transport your loved one to the service is an important and highly personal aspect of the arrangements and can be a crucial element of making the day memorable and special for the bereaved.
There are many types of transport that you can choose from, each of which offers something a little different. We are with our clients every step of the way to choose and advise on vehicle selection, and have summarised a few of the most popular options below:
A hearse is perhaps the most popular and well-known choice of funeral vehicle. The distinctive extended black car often has a clear glass body through which you can choose to display the coffin and flowers for your loved one. Traditional hearse vehicles are also instantly recognisable by others on the road, a sign for motorists to respect those that are mourning while driving.
A variation on the hearse car, the horse-drawn hearse is a carriage that is pulled by horses to the service venue. This is often chosen as a very special way to transport your loved one, a memorable tribute that will no doubt touch the hearts of the bereaved.
If you are looking for something more discreet, a private ambulance can transport your loved one directly to the location of the funeral.
This is a popular form of transportation for both motorcycle and sidecar enthusiasts and can be a great way to express and celebrate your loved one’s love of bikes. These fun, eye-catching vehicles are capable of carrying a coffin and a small number of flowers that are sure to be memorable for all of your family and friends.
This is certainly one of the more unusual forms of funeral transportation, but can be a very fitting tribute for farmers or those with a love of tractors. Due to demand, there are now a number of types of tractor hearse available for hire – from the modern to the vintage vehicle.
Whichever type of transport you choose, we can help you arrange everything. We have access to a range of suppliers – just let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll make sure we source a vehicle that your family and friends will love and remember forever.
