On the day of the service there are a number of alternative transport options available, both for the choice of hearse and for your family members to travel to the service location.

Limousines:  Many families choose to use their own cars for transportation to the funeral, and if required, in the funeral cortege.

There are advantages in using a limousine and car hire service, as they can carry up to 10 passengers per vehicle, allowing family and friends to remain together while in transit.  You may prefer to hire one or more sedans for different family groups. The professional uniformed chauffeurs show respectful discretion and sensitivity, and are experienced in funeral etiquette.

They will take you to your destination promptly and seamlessly, with no need to worry about giving directions or worrying about a late arrival.  Most funeral directors will handle the funeral limousine booking for you.

Customised Hearses: If you want something unique and memorable for their last journey, you can pay tribute to the deceased’s passion for riding motorcycles, customised hot rods, vintage cars, or even golf by hiring a customised hearse.

The motorcycle hearse has become popular and is often used during the funeral of motorcycle enthusiasts.  This type of hearse is either a motorcycle with a special sidecar built to carry a coffin, or it is a trailer that carries the coffin behind the rider.

The horse drawn hearse is a beautiful piece of Australian history for those with a love of horses, Australian history, rural life or vintage vehicles.

There are many other customised hearses available for hire in some areas of Australia.

Motorised Escorts:  If the deceased was a motorbike or car enthusiast, you could arrange for an escort to follow the hearse to the service, or as part of the cortege to the burial site.

Family Vehicle on Display:  If the deceased owned a vintage car, customised hot rod, motorcycle etc they can be placed on display at the front the venue.
