Not sure if use to many but definitely for me as a eBay seller as it saves money on the smaller parcel but saving money if it weighs more :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At myHermes, we’re always striving to improve the value of our service. Having reviewed our offer, we’ve decided to change our weights and dimensions to compete with all of our competitors, including Royal Mail and we are introducing a new range of weight bands for smaller and medium sized parcels.

This is great news, as revising our parcel weight bands now makes it easier for you to compare prices, with the introduction of two new weight bands: “0-2kg Small” and “0-2kg Medium”.

This means that if you are sending a parcel that weighs 2kg or under:
If the size does not exceed 45cm (L) x 35cm (H)x 16cm (W) you will be able to take advantage of our small parcel category.

If the size exceeds the small parcel, you can opt for the medium parcel category, with maximum dimensions of 61cm (L) x 46cm (H) x 46cm (H).
Our upper weight and dimension limits will not change allowing you to send parcels weighing over 2kg up to 15kg and a maximum length of 120cm, with combined dimensions of 245cm. See our parcel size page here.

Update
The myHermes prices have been updated and will show the cost of a small or medium parcel from 00:00 on Wednesday 17th August. The prices of a “0-2kg Small” parcel will cost from £2.75 (inc VAT) and the price of a “0-2kg Medium” parcel will cost from £3.95 (inc VAT).

This is a PRICE INCREASE!
0-1kg was always £2.75 (Google: hermes prices)
Medium sized parcels 0-1kg now cost £1.20 each MORE!
THIS IS A MASSIVE INCREASE!
The only reduction is 1-2kg small sized parcel that most people won't benefit from, as small sized parcels are mostly under 1kg.
Amazing how this price is increase is so well disguised, people are voting hot!
Introducing sizing for parcels is a real bother as you now need to pull out the tape measure every time you book a parcel.

Hermes didn't even claim it is a price reduction. They say it is "great news" because it is now easier for you to "compare prices".

I posted about this on an old thread earlier this evening after I'd received the email from Hermes,it's not good for people who send bulky light parcels though as they will end up paying more as it will be a medium parcel.

It doesn't apply to people who have a business account with them.

For many people, myself included, this is a significant reduction in costs of sending parcels tracked, compared with the Royal Mail, more than half of my Royal Mail parcels are >1kg, yet small enough to send in the small parcel, which in reality is still quite large.

Good luck getting the useless idiots to even bother collecting the parcels. Tried them on 3 occasions and they failed to pick them up TWICE. Customer services are a joke. Do you really want these clowns representing your company with their ineptitude?

My local MyHermes driver is my absolute favourite courier.

He's polite, always delivers at the same time every day, waits that extra minute for me to get to the door if he can see the car in the drive, leaves the parcels in a safe (actually a safe place, not a stupid place like a bin) place if no one is in etc. He even whistles when approaching the door so the dogs know it's him, and sometimes even gives them treats!

Anyhow, MyHermes gets a lot of bad rep but I think they're one of the better couriers, although it does entirely depend on the person covering your postcode area.

DPD are fantastic as I like the 1 hour time slots and text updates but they cost so much more than MyHermes for smaller packages.

As I always say on these threads it's best to take them to the shop if you can as it's quicker and more reliable.

Overall, this is going to have many more losers than winners, which makes it a price increase - on average by around 25% for most senders. Not many people are posting mostly over 1kg small parcels. You are likely to be a loser yourself if you change the sizes that you are posting.
Small parcel maximum size is 45cm x 35cm x 16cm, that is pretty tight for an item over 1kg.

Don't be so sure, had 2 items lost in the last 3 months with RM. Both happened to be £100 worth of clothing - Coincidence?

Never had an issue with Hermes.

So thank you very much but NO :(

Oh my goodness me I cannot believe this picture.... EXACTLY The same thing happened to me... Package was marked on tracking as "Delivered to a Secure Location".... Which turned out to be in my rubbish-filled wheelie bin at the front of the house!!... "Secure Location" - NOT!

I am now engaged in an more-than-2-weeks-long email exchange with their quite-clearly non-UK based "customer services" department who seem unable to respond adequately to even the simplest question, and tie themselves in knots with contradictory answers.

Most recent reply was words to the effect that "We cannot discuss this with you because our contract is with the sender not the recipient" to which I replied firstly by questioning why, then, had the previous 9 agents all replied to me discussing the matter..... Utter and total incompetence.

My point is... myHermes CANNOT be trusted to treat your parcels with respect or care, I would steer WELL CLEAR, I've never had this with other couriers... Just my 2p's worth but I am clearly not alone in having a problem with this lot!

Actually, that person was correct - couriers owe nothing to the recipient of a delivery and should ONLY deal with the sender (as they paid for and contracted the service)

As a recipient you deal with the sender and the sender deals with the courier - you have absolutely no claim or comeback with the courier, you MUST deal with the sender - end-of.

It is totally different actually. It's tracked.

I'll be straight-up here - I now use Hermes over the Post Office for all my parcels for the following reasons

1 - their drop-off point is closer and open longer hours
2 - they are cheaper for almost everything except for narrow/light items (the PO's stupid large-letter width reduction has killed their business, basically)
3 - my experience as a sender is quicker and more pleasant

To expand on 3, our local Post Office(s) seem to resent actually accepting post - they make me jump hoops, ask me stupid questions, limit the amount of items I can send, if I pre-print postage they still make me weigh and check contents for EVERY package - meanwhile, Hermes just take my parcels quickly and politely!!

So far I've had no issues with delivery - I'm sure I'll eventually run into problems but for what I pay (less than the PO) I get full tracking so I can deal with problems ahead of time

p.s. If you're the sort of person who's "mostly out", give the sender details of where to leave the parcel - their system has provision for detailed instructions. A note saying that a neighbour will accept it or that you have a safe box in the garden or similar will avoid the courier having to improvise - when you have 200 parcels to deliver and no-one is at-home/there's no alternate delivery location, it gets pretty **** tiresome finding places to leave parcels and coming back is a waste of time and money (and likely another blank!?)
