Still have to pay the SP charge if the thickness is over a certain amount though

Avoid RM altogether, use alternate couriers.

Heat for the price though.

RM is fine for low weight & size items, it's when they start to get large and over 2kg that it's better to use other couriers.

Large letter thickness = maximum of 25mm.
Small parcel is 8cm.

I'd rather, and do, pay slightly more to not use them.

I tried to send a pair of glasses today, weighing 256 grams. £6.75 they wanted, to send them recorded 1st class. Absolute joke, myHermes wanted £2.78.

Do you have to pay postage for this off amazon?

1st class small parcel recorded with royal mail is not £6.75 so dont know what service they offered you. Would rather pay Rm than let myhermes kick the parcel around and chuck it over a fence.

Good price but don't offer much protection for the contents.

Just double checked and I could have had it for around £4.50, so I withdraw that comment. Would still rather use couriers. Have never had anything I have send using couriers go missing or be damaged. Can't say the same for RM. Although something which was sent to me was damaged, but I have been refunded damages, RM make compensation very difficult.

Why are there two threads showing for this at this price, with one expired and one not?

These are very thin plastic bags being promoted as some kind of magical Royal Mail avoidance device. Sorry, but I just don't get it.

How do these in any way enable you to pay less postage? :|

If it's expired then presumably both threads should show expired.

It's still available at £3.80 when you click through so I have no idea why they've expired it.

I personally think the title needs amending, these bags do not help anybody avoid the small parcel prices, they are large letter postal bags, its ridiculous, its like posting envelopes and stating to avoid large letter prices.

There is still restrictions, 750g max with a 2.5cm thickness.

And with Hermes you are insured even if you choose to NOT have the signature option for £50.00 where as RM are only £20 and you have to have proof of postage for everything and 99% of the time a claim is denied - Royal Fail is a laughing stock!

Just like the original misleading post - he was defending the undefendable.... anyone voting heat has no idea what they are voting for.

Large letter thickness = maximum of 25mm.
Small parcel is 8cm.
Small Parcels can measure up to:
Length 45cm
Width 35cm
Depth 8cm
Weight up to 2kg max
OR
Length 35cm
Width 25cm
Depth 16cm
Weight up to 2kg max.
#32
agree with others that this is COLD and title is BS, if anything these floppy plastic bags are worse for thickness charges
#33
So these bags are essentially girdles that make your parcel slip through small spaces? Magic.

and your point is? just the same as Royal Fail - try getting compensation from them for anything on this list....

That list just about counts almost every item out then..
Just pins and needles to post to me old granny in aus left! :p
#36
My point is the compensation you state infact is not available for most items. I never said royal mail was easy to claim from ?
Myhermes is well documented for the service they provide and the lack of any compensation. I send 100+ parcels per week with royal mail with very few problems, for the brief time i used myhermes they lost/stole or damaged 6 out of 11 parcels. I have also received orders from boots via myhermes which was smashed to pieces and just chucked behind the bin. I understand that the service can vary depending on the driver in your area but sorry i will not use them again or like many others not order from retailers who use them.

If you use them and are happy then great but for a lot of retailers and customers they are poor. Royal mail has its faults but not even close to the problems myhermes cause.
