Agreements for Body Transportation
Guidance for Persons Responsible for Contacting Transporters
After the medical examiner has assumed jurisdiction of a decedent,
you may contact any firm appearing on our list of authorized transporters
to move a body.
Those transporters indicated as Available should be contacted first.
Several are available in most counties, allowing you to secure
the best, most responsive transportation service available in your area.
Please note that Reserve transporters are available on a limited
basis and may not be generally available.
In order to be eligible for reimbursement by the state,
a transporter must enter into a written agreement with the state.
All firms on this list have entered into such an agreement.
Firms Not Listed
Some funeral homes that have an agreement with the state are not
listed at their request.
Please be aware that if you contact a firm that does not appear
on this list,
they may or may not be eligible for reimbursement by the state.
If you have a question as to whether they are eligible
or if you know of a firm that wishes to provide services,
please contact the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
