If it bothers you then dont bother with a hearse - hire a van instead

Because people are willing to pay that much.
Anything to do with funerals... coffins, hearse, gravestones, etcetera, have huge markups because people buy them in a hurry and don't have time to shop around. You can really do your family a favor if you are getting on in years by making your own funeral arrangements. Take the time to shop around, get it all paid for, and leave the receipts and contracts with your will.
Personally, cremation is just fine.

Because that is what most people are stupid enough to pay. Why charge LESS when most people will pay MORE?
it is called "Whatever the Market will Bear". ANYTHING costs as much as people will pay for it. IF people wouldn't pay that price, they would lower it. But if YOU don't oay it, someone else will, and THEY will get a limo and YOU won;t.

Anything to do with funerals is a rip off it's time the government stopped it. People can organise a funeral themselves without all the costs.

Because that is what the company charge.
If you don't like their price then shop around or find something else.
