James Hardcastle of The Carriagemaster has enjoyed ‘strong successes’ with his self-drive hearse, a venture to which the teeming team here at the GFG-Batesvile Shard has given its unanimous and enthusiastic backing. No one ever went wrong, we like to say (over and over, the record shows), who sought to find ways to empower the bereaved. What’s more, we’ve met James and we think he is not just a good egg but an unimpeachable egg and a very astute businessperson.
James has now launched what he calls Hearse+
It’s a Ford Galaxy private ambulance/removal vehicle (pictured above) in which 4 family members can drive their person who’s died on their last journey on Earth. They can spend as long as they want and take any route they want so long as they get to the ceremony venue on time.
One of James’s people will drive the hearse to the family, give them a short course in driving it, and lob them the keys.
Fuller detail here: Hearse+ Features and Benefits. The cost is around half that of a conventional hearse driven by someone else.
If you’ve any questions for James, contact him or, if you would like him to respond publicly, leave a comment below.
It goes without saying that the GFG has no commercial relationship with The Carriagemaster.
