Alternative funeral hearse hire creates a unique and symbolic reminder of a person’s life.

There are numerous quotes in life about journeys and travel. A journey is a common metaphor for life itself, forming the basis of numerous inspirational sayings. For example, “Life is a journey, travel it well”. But we’re also a generation of globetrotters and as we all know, life can take us in many directions.

The importance of funeral transport should not be overlooked

Therefore, the last journey made after we’ve passed away can be as equally as important as the journeys made whilst living. By selecting a particular type of alternative funeral transport and a chosen route to the final resting place, which are personal to the deceased, a funeral can suddenly become more about their life than their death. It’s not about going into the dark and unknown, but celebrating life and creating more memories.

While it can sometimes be overlooked, the transport you choose can be hugely symbolic of your life. For instance, the families of bikers might ask for fellow bikers to accompany the coffin in a motorcycle procession. Other symbolic modes of transport include VW campervans, vintage motorbikes and traditional horse and carriage.
