Transport vehicles of ELPIS Funeral Directors
These are funeral vehicles certified in accordance with the Act for Undertaking Services for the carriage of the deceased in the event of their death occuring in medical and social facilities, hospices, homes or retirement homes in Prague and throughout the Czech Republic.
Modern Ford Transit, Fiat Ducato and Hyundai vehicles belong to this category.
Representative vehicles in the service of ELPIS Funeral Directors
These are all vehicles of the highest category. High-quality hearses are most often used during mourning processions, repatriation (transporting to/from abroad), for VIP funerals and at the specific request of the customer. We accompany funeral processions with these vehicles (in a cortège), i.e. the accompaniment of the deceased by a hearse on foot or in vehicles to the place of interment.
This category includes the latest models of Mercedes-Benz, Lincoln and Ford Transit vehicles.
We also hire our hearses for transfers, funerals and funeral cortèges outside Prague. You may order these when arranging a funeral in our offices.
These vehicles may be hired even in the case that you have not ordered the funeral through us. Contact us by telephone on 00420 602 200 700 or send us an email to the following address firstname.lastname@example.org
At the customer’s request ELPIS Funeral Directors will also arrange funerals where the deceased are taken to their final resting place by carriage in a procession (cortège). This is usually from a church or ceremony hall to the cemetery.
