Home » Funeral Services » Funeral Transport » Alternative vehicle transport

We are proud to have expanded the choice of unusual and alternative funeral hearses that we are able to offer our customers, all of which may reflect the interests or career of the deceased.

A wonderful way to say goodbye, alternative funeral transport is becoming ever more popular, as grieving family and friends look for special ways and unique funeral ideas when paying tribute to a very special person they have lost.

Honour your loved ones by choosing an alternative hearse to take them on their final journey. Bennetts Funeral Directors provide a bespoke service and guarantee that all our funeral transport meets the high standards expected by our customers when arranging alternative funeral transport.

Harley Davidson Hearse

Any enthusiast will tell you, nothing on earth sounds or feels the same as an authentic Harley Davidson. These legendary motorcycles are a lifetime passion for some and what better tribute to your loved one’s memory than to say a final farewell with the machine they loved.

The custom sidecar ensures that the coffin and floral tributes will remain protected in any weather conditions.

Suzuki Hayabusa Hearse

One of the fastest motorcycle hearses in the world, our Suzuki Hayabusa provides the ultimate send-off for the ultimate riders. The bike is fast, sleek, and popular with racers, marshals, sports enthusiasts, and people who lived life in the fast lane.

Triumph Thunderbird Hearse

The Triumph Thunderbird is a traditional British twin, and a 1600cc twin at that! This bike is so powerful it may appeal to classic train enthusiasts! Built in Great Britain this hearse option is fast proving popular with the largest range of people, from classic bike enthusiasts to people who simply want something unusual and stylish. As with all British specification hearses and the rest of our motorbike fleet, it has a pillion seat.  The Thunderbird also has a flower rail, secure hearse fittings, internal temperature control, and a glass roof to light up the coffin and flowers.

VW Split Screen Hearse 1965

This 1965 Volkswagen split screen 13 window deluxe microbus. Being the deluxe model it has had factory-fitted chrome accents added to set it apart from the working commercial van. It also has stainless steel bumpers and chrome wheels. It is absolutely gorgeous (in our opinion of course). The hearse has two-tone silver paintwork which glistens in the sunshine.

This VW is originally from Ohio in the USA. It was imported, restored to its former glory, and commissioned as a fully functioning hearse in 2012.
