What is a Custom Hearse

A custom hearse is a funeral vehicle that is specifically designed and made to transport a casket. They are usually black in color and have a long, sleek design. It has windows, seats, and can be custom decorated inside and out.

Different types of hearses:

There are a variety of hearses to choose from, depending on your needs. Some people prefer traditional hearses, while others might prefer something more unique. Here are some of the most popular types of hearses:

Traditional Hearse

A traditional hearse is a black car with ornaments and space behind the driver for a coffin to be placed. Funeral processions use these vehicles to transport dead bodies from hospitals, funeral homes, or directly from the place of death to cemeteries.

Horse-drawn Hearse

A horse-drawn hearse is a funeral carriage that transports the deceased person's body. The carriage is pulled by horses, and often has two or more horses hitched to it. The horse-drawn hearse was the most common type of funeral carriage in the United States up until the early 20th century. However, with the advent of the automobile, the horse-drawn hearse began to be replaced by the motorized hearse. Today, there are still a few companies in the United States that offer horse-drawn hearses as part of their funeral services.

SUV Hearse

This vehicle usually has handrails to allow sliding caskets inside if needed, additional storage space in the back to hold small items such as flowers or large items like urns or coffins, and all models are equipped with standard features you would see on any other SUV.

SUV hearse is a vehicle that combines aspects of both cars and trucks such as size and towing capacity. The use of an SUV as a hearse usually means that the design was chosen on account of its ability to drive up curbs and easily transport large coffins on its floor without needing to be tilted on their backside.

Classic Car Hearse

This custom vehicle gives a beautiful vintage feel to the funeral, making it perfect for classic car enthusiasts or those who want something traditional but not too serious. A classic hearse is a vehicle primarily used for close procession of the casket containing the body, either right behind it or led by it down the center aisle, at slower pace than other vehicles in the funeral.

Street Rod Hearse

A street rod hearse features a custom exterior design with a modern flair, often including custom rims and impressive colors. It's great for both men and women who want an elegant yet edgy look. There's no doubt that a street rod hearse is one of the coolest vehicles around. It's got the style and grace of a traditional hearse; they combine the classic style of a hearse with the excitement and power of a street rod.

Military Hearse

A military hearse is a vehicle that is used to transport the bodies of deceased veterans and members of the military.

Military hearses are typically based on Humvees or other large military vehicles, and they are often decorated with American flags or other patriotic symbols. In addition to transporting bodies, military hearses can also be used to transport ceremonial items such as the flag-draped casket of a fallen soldier.

Lowrider Hearse

The lowrider hearses are some of the most popular custom hearses around. These vehicles are often pimped out with custom paint, chrome wheels, and other luxurious features. They're perfect for those who want to make a statement and show off their unique style. A Lowrider Hearse is a car, truck or SUV with lowered suspension and articulating headlights. Hoods will be popped, and skirts might cover 50% of the wheelbase.

How A Hearse Is Different Than Other Vehicles

A hearse is specifically designed to transport bodies. The body is placed on a flat surface in the back of the hearse and is usually covered with a cloth or shroud.

The hearse has a special suspension system that allows it to drive smoothly over bumps and potholes, which is important because it's often driven on unpaved roads. The hearse also has a window in the rear so that people can see the body as it's being transported. The hearse usually has a black body and curtains, which gives it a somber appearance. It also has a specially designed roof that can accommodate a coffin.
