You've been reading the Mail.

The thing is with Hermes every order is tracked even if not signed for so act as proof of delivery for Paypal claims etc.
I send a couple of hundred a week with P2g. £20 insurance as standard and you can bulk import a spreadsheet.

Royal mail need to catch up urgent, even the recorded delivery stuff is not guaranteed, in 2015 surely they could implement a barcode and tracking as standard.

I have used MH for 4 years,never had a single problem sending or receiving however you need to read carefully what is and what is not covered for compensation, it excludes, electrical goods, ornaments, computers, almost everything that is breakable IS NOT COVERED.
They are the cheapest I have found and although the couriers are all self employed and there has been a number of bad stories about MH it's interesting that Royal Mail loose millions of letters, packages every year. I wonder where all they disappear to.

Hermes have REALLY bad customer service - they delivered something I sent to the wrong address and then made me wait for 3 months to get minimal compensation which didn't cover my costs. They again, recently damaged a parcel on its way to me which then somehow got lost in their warehouse.

It might be cheap and most people won't have issues, but when you do it is very painful and slow

I've just done a quote for a 5kg parcel and it is £5.28 inc VAT.......

I think that price is for under 2kg only.

Ah right you are. Parcel2Go are always sneaky with their prices/wording before you add all the parcel info! Still, £2.34 makes it quite a bit cheaper than CollectPlus (0-2KG costs £4.89)

Have edited the original title, cheers. :)

Parcel to go not very good with after sales service _ my parcel got lost and they neithe did they assist in tracking it nor offer any compensation , yet I was covered for upto £50 . Just a word of caution keep all sorts of proof , photos of items etc.

I mostly use MyHermes direct now, unless I am sending an item which is under 1kg and worth less than £20 and then I use P2G
Also can link your ebay account so all the info is imported, saves a lot of time.

I think there is an offer on Parcel to Go to have your first delivery free.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/vouchers/parcel2go.com

I looked at Parcel monkey and others and Parcel to go seemed the lowest priced.

Compared to Royal Mail the my Hermes with drop off via a parcelshop offers tracking though as has been said the compensation is £20

Its great being able to print postage at home even for Royal Mail as you can just drop of the parcels and all the labels and weighing is done at home.

I've found that this cheap postal service makes it viable to send even low value items that might otherwise be stuck in a cupboard or junked.

I sent a radio via MyHermes and packed it really well yet was still smashed by them. It's as if they open the parcel, throw the item at a wall, then package it up again !
And of course no compensation as it was an electrical item.

I haven't been reading anything mate, All personal experience, albeit in the past but the majority of experiences I have had in the past with either MyHermes has not been enjoyable, granted I have never used Parcel2Go but I did use them via Interparcel.

You read anywhere (HUKD Misc included) regarding MyHermes and the bad points outweigh the good, My experiences mainly involved parcels been left within viewing for anybody who should pass my house to see, they just 'lob' parcels into inaccessible places and on numerous occasions have had issues with the time an item is expected to be collected.

It's funny how the general mindset on this website is that you get what you pay for, which really does come into play with MyHermes (in my opinion), Maybe if they paid their staff a decent rate (what is it now 45-50p a parcel?) they would care more about the job they do. If you're paying somebody that rate, why wouldn't they leave a parcel under any circumstances to save redelivery costs to themselves?

Obviously I understand you may have had issues with the likes of Royal Mail, DPD and Parcel Force, but they are my chosen couriers for my own reasons.

i liked myhermes until i realised that their insurance basically excludes almost everything you might want to send including electronics, ceramics, glass, musical instruments, sim cards, watches and any and all tickets.

(see the complete list at the bottom)

off the top of my head the one thing they do seem to cover is books. so that's nice.

TrustPilot is absolutely useless for getting an idea of a couriers service. DPD who are the best by a mile & only get 6.8/10 with claims of them being fraudulent and liars. 43.3% have rated them 1 star.

How often do people who have good experiences decide they want to go leave a review on TrustPilot? Far, far less than those who had a bad one!

So I was meant to get a delivery from Hermes recently and my tracking says it was "delivered to a secure location." I was home all day on that day and no one rang the door bell, nor was there a knock. They didn't even leave a slip saying where it was located! I searched all around the house but didn't find anything.
#25
if you ever use this service, do not write on the box that you are sending a screen or tv,.our laptop, i have sent those items before never got delivered.
took 2 months to get refund on my insurance.

unreliable courier

make sure you buy the insurance at the checkout!

I do hope you are not taking any of this criticism personally? My comments in this thread are based on my opinions of the company mentioned in the title and are in no way meant as any kind of criticism to the deal poster, I have stated my opinion for voting this 'deal' cold, I have also linked to the Trustpilot reviews to give indication to the experiences customers have received whilst using MyHermes.

I stated previously that people may have also had issues with my chosen courier service, I sold a tablet on this website on Friday that was posted via small parcel with Royal Mail on Saturday, it arrived intact with the purchaser on Monday, I would not have even have let it cross my mind to send that item via MyHermes, more so for the recipient than myself.

I use my hermes directly to pick up from home, saves haiving to drop the parcel off, very good value
#29
used Hermes parcel service on several occasions and always been very happy and very competitive price. The fact that i can use a local shop to drop the parcel off makes life alot easier. use to use Royal Mail but their prices went through the roof.

royal mail's current special offer is £2.80 all the way up to 2kg, so they're competitive to 1kg and win over that. I'm using them until their prices change, and feel more comfortable than with most alternatives.

Do not use Hermes.

Im selling items for £4.99. After the initial purchase price, postage costs and Ebay/paypal fees - i make a profit of around 62p
(Thats not even including petrol costs to get to the drop off point, and im re-using old packaging.)
Ebay & paypal are greedy berbars.

I've had mixed experiences - sending low value eBay items is what I mainly use for, this seems to work really well. One time I asked for collection from my house they didn't arrive (did 2 days later when I was at work). Delivery also a blessing and a curse - they tend to leave parcels in a 'secure' location (out of sight) which is good because I don't have to trek to a depot to get the parcel but it's not the most secure. This is when they deliver - it took 2 weeks for one parcel to make its way 40 miles up the road because it got lost at the depot.

For me, great in certain circumstances - sending a tracked parcel for less than £3 is good for eBay sellers and buyers.

Not at all mate. We're all free to vote how we want here, and I have no connections with P2G or any couriers so of course I'm not going to take criticism personally!

I understand you wouldn't send high value items with them, I wouldn't either usually... but for people sending items and have low profit margins (after eBay/PayPal fees) sometimes you need to take the risk with the cheapest couriers, i.e. if you're sending items that don't have a very high sale value but require a largish parcel and can take the hit if let's say every 1 in 100 goes missing - this deal is perfect for them IMO.

I recently sold computer parts for around £260... eBay took around £30 of that, PayPal around £15... if I'd used Royal Mail or well regarded couriers that would have been another £35 or so (I vaguely remember one thing being quoted at around £18) - that would have been £80 disappearing into thin air (it basically meant one item would have sold for nothing) - so I opted for Yodel (another 'terrible' courier) and 2/3 of the items were going to N. Ireland as well so an even bigger risk. Sure they took 5-6 days or so... but they all got there intact and on time.

I've only ever had one thing I've sent go missing, and that was with Royal Mail. Although admittedly it probably wasn't their fault as it was an RMA being sent to Netherlands that vanished somewhere over mainland Europe!
