Funeral homes almost always have a charge for the hearse or other vehicle to take the body to its "place of rest." There is no additional charge if the destination is within 25 miles; mileage beyond that is charged by the mile in one direction. This amount varies in different areas of the country. A call to a Clarksville funeral home indicates that the charge in that area is $225 for the vehicle and $3 per mile one way beyond 25 miles. The distance between the two cities you asked about is about 260 miles, making the total cost approximately $700. Keep in mind that these are the charges only for the transportation. Feel free to call a Clarksville funeral home to get prices on any other associated arrangements you would like.
