With the job of a funeral director comes the inevitable use of private cars and transport. When we last renewed our fleet, hybrid and electric options were limited and arguably untested. However, it has been exciting to watch the developments in funeral fleet engineering over the last couple of years. We now know that our next set of vehicles will be electric or an alternative to petrol or diesel. And we’ve already made a start on that road. In early 2024 we took delivery of a hybrid pool car, which will run entirely on electricity in the local area. We have also installed electric car charging points for the benefit of our future fleet, clients and staff. Colleagues can claim £500 from the business towards a new private electric or hybrid vehicle purchase as well.
