Richard Steel & Partners have introduced three new Polaris hearses from Superior UK in Steel’s distinctive blue colour, along with their adoption of new blue uniforms this has transformed the look of funerals in their part of Hampshire. These changes reflect the direction in which Company Directors Iain Steel and Mark Hixon feel the funeral sector is and must be heading.
Mark explains how, with such deep roots in the history of the local area, the firm continues to make decisions that benefit and reflect the changes in its local community. “We seek ways to ensure that we exceed our clients’ expectations on every occasion”. “We recognise that our vehicles represent a major part of the overall funeral experience and demonstrates the quality of service that we stand for”
“We love the sleekness of the new hearses, and the blue colour matches our branding perfectly,” said Mark. “One family recently told us that their Mum loved to travel in style and would have appreciated her final journey being in such an amazing vehicle. That kind of feedback means everything to us.”
Iain Steel, fourth generation, said, “We firmly believe that every funeral is unique as it reflects both the wishes of the family and their financial situation. This move to blue further enhances our individual approach to funerals and by listening to our families it really helps them through their grief journey.”
A shining example of how Steel’s are bringing this personalised vision to reality is by offering families their unique Chesil House venue and memorial garden. Set on the banks of the River Itchen and with its own tributary running through the secret walled gardens, Chesil House has been in the Steel’s family for over 100 years. This beautiful location is exclusively available for unhurried services and gatherings to reflect honour and celebrate a life.
