Just used Parcel2go for the first time for some kitchen draws. The courier was Parcelforce. Delivery arrived in the morning 16:50pm I got an email claiming overage charge. Spoke to online chat, as they dont have a number and they just directed me to the dispute form. I called Parcelforce and CS agent said there was no issue from what they could see. The claimed measurements and weight are all my significantly rounded up measurements bar one which is increased. Makes me dubious, particularly the fact the email was received so late in the day as I presume a fair % of people would have opened the parcel by this time and disposed of the packaging. Fortunately I had only opened the top to ensure everything was intact, so have sent in images.


Does the trick still work as I can't seem to get the 1.99 option to show


100000% agree!!! DPD are the best!!! Love their app and how they link up my parcels to my address and account automatically. Haven't used them for sending parcels yet though.


I agree, I've had bad experiences with both so definitely won't use either, DPD are my favourite couriers at the moment.


Not saying RM are the best... but in my experience better than myhermes

Same old story, took mine a week to be collected. Hope yours is sorted now. Will never use again.


Does anyone know how to contact inpost directly? Parcel has been waiting to be collected from the locker for 4 days now.


Well decided to give it a go, parcel has been in the locker for over 5 days so far. Not impressed, I think I'll stick to Hermes Look at the visitors post on inpost UK Facebook page. Stay clear!!!


Inpost direct has a max height of 8cm, whereas Parcel2Go does not.


No, but if your parcel is small you can book direct at and get £20 included compensation. Has to be under 8cm x 38cm x 64cm.

ParcelHero have better offers if you need to send larger packages, its £3.30 odd to send up to 15kg using my Hermes, never had problems


It's only £2.79 for up to 2kg so I don't think it's that great. I use them a lot but not for parcels to Edinburgh as I have previously had problems send there with myhermes. Everywhere else has been fine


I never really understand the hate for Hermes. I’ve used them at work for 6 years now, have put well over 20,000 parcels through them and only had a handful lost or damaged - they’ve always paid out. I was hesitant at first given the amount of abuse on the Facebook page but you have to wonder how people are packing parcels. Most of the criticism seems to be people expecting delivery by a certain time - that’s not something Hermes provide. I know you get certain drivers that are bad but most parcels get delivered in 3 days. Then there’s the packing - you don’t simply wave some bubble wrap at your parcel. You have to wrap your item(s) 2 or 3 times, double box the parcel, and then use more packaging to cushion your item from moving around or being crushed in the post. Simply putting “fragile” on the front won’t cut it! I’ve sent crockery sets through Hermes, mugs, ceramics, glassware etc which you can’t claim for but, if you pack it correctly, arrives in one piece.


This seems like the price I've been paying for ages. How is it a deal? Seems like the usual price

Parcel2Go have reduced the price of there small and medium parcels (up to 2kg) to £1.95 as part of a black friday special sale.

I am using myhermes for last three years for all mybmedoum size parcels, had problems twice and they always refunded no questions asked. Better than Royal Mail in my opinion who will never accept they are at fault. Cannot recommend them enough, cheapest in UK for the service the do.

There is no way to even do this and the whole thing looks completely bogus. I suspect this is a phishing scam to obtain ebay logins etc so to anybody else thinking about it, AVOID ITS A SCAM!!!!!!

Send a 2Kg Parcel from £2.39 @ Parcel2Go (Price Drop)

We have honestly Never had a single problem, no damage or any loss to any of the dozens of parcels we sent all over the UK every week with MyHermes (we always book via Parcel2Go as it’s a bit cheaper for some reason). We never choose our Courier (we go they Parcel2Go) but the 2 day small parcel drop-off Service by MyHermes virtually always comes out the cheapest by far for our needs with their only competition from time to time being In-Post (both companies regularly offer various price deals - sometimes for a reason Black Friday etc, other times not - these £ drops don’t require you buy anything extra, giving up any info or sign up to a thing) MH are always faster than the allowed time (usually 2 days on a 2-5 day Service where we very often drop off the parcels at our local open all hours newsagent Over the weekends and during the silly hours of late night/early morning). Their booking process and tracking is really quick and easy. I have to add we experience very few problems with Royal Mail too to be fair but the loss / damage runs at maybe 3-5% a year versus nothing yet with MH. This isn’t a fair comparison, however, as we send loads more items via Royal Mail so would expect a couple more issues - not to mention the inability to track the parcel see the signature etc ourselves. We have to use RM for our slightly lighter and smaller items - while couriers may be excellent price-wise for thicker packages and/or those that weigh in from about the 750g mark and up, its at the 2kg+ weight that they become simply invaluable. Just check Royal mail’s massive price leap from a parcel weighing 2000g to the same sized parcel that weighs 2001g. That extra gram of sellotape will set you back BIG TIME - an additional £10.85 2nd class to be precise (or a far more reasonable £10.35 Extra should you plump for 1st) ). Nevertheless we’ve yet to find a Courier that can even begin to compete with Royal mails large letter prices. So lots of our books cost around £1.20 to send by RM but RM can’t touch the max £2.39 we pay for our very weighty hardbacks (even with the 2nd class £2.90 up to 2kg, the extra pence certainly adds up when you’re sending out multiple packages. In-Post sometimes do a deal that works out c.10p cheaper per parcel than MyHermes and their top weight is a massive 20kg for a parcel costing just £1.89 plus VAT! I still opt for MH over InPost at times for the simple fact they don’t whack a big surcharge ( £5+ on a really small package) on items destined for addresses in Northern Ireland and (not terribly remote) parts of mainland Scotland. Royal Mail and MyHermes do beat In-Post in that respect (though I understand more couriers add the surcharges than don’t) So yes I do Hear and take note of all the horror stories but can honestly report nothing has changed for us - MyHermes is a force to be reckoned with in our experience and with enough RM defectors it’s simple economics that they (MyHermes et al) will likely push the competitions standards up a little higher as well as keeping prices down across the board! Now all the couriers need to do (imho) is to offer very competitive rates on parcels in the 250g to 2kg weight range....I’d make it a price low enough to pull away us ppl who default to RM, aiming to get at least 30% of our weekly dispatches. So how will couriers know they’ve got the price right? I’d say when we see the price & are happy to go ahead without feeling the need to use up 10-20 valuable mins running price comparisons against it ..them’s the prices we want and our online business Need if they’re to remain viable 🐒


Terrible service, don't touch them with a barge pole. You have been warned. When things go wrong they are a disaster to deal with!


True, their tracking system info often states lies. I've had this happen many times. Worst customer service ever or lack of it. Their telephone number does not allow you to speak to anyone. Why?


I have most trouble with RMail. I expect losses no matter who i use but claiming via RM is annoying. I send a fair amount but after your first couple of claims they start adding in extra hoops. They require the recipient to fill in a form too but for ebay buyers I've yet to have one that did so that means no compensation. Hermes direct has paid out when i provided what they needed and faster than RM. Surprisingly P2Go has been the easiest at paying out. Only took days. I had several items lost with InPost back in the day when CityLink were doing it but it was still within reasonable number of losses compared to RM. That is a huge turnaround from the olden days when even contacting them was like trying to find proof of god.


I've used both Parcel2go and myHermes over the past three months for about 30 items in total. Never had a problem with either.

Amazingly, I found that parcel2go refunded me for a lost parcel within days. Hermes took a bit longer. RMail can take 30 days to give you your first reply and require far more from you. RMail are lenient maybe the first time you make your claim but if it is of any value or a subsequent claim they then start ramping up the requirements in my experience. They also require the recipient to return a completed form - that is where i hit a brick wall as not a single one of my buyers would return that form so i'd get nothing back from RMail. That is RM and domestic claims though. For international they are easier to get compensation from.


do not use hermes, they might be cheap, but no customer support and they lose parcels. when you claim you need every receipt even if you have had the item for 10 years. no receipt no insurance, you ask for a signature they deliver it and leave it somewhere without one. problems after problems and i just quit being their agent due to it.


Hermes - insured parcel was lost, wait 5 week without anything


​ yeah, I'm not saying they don't do it at all in 2 days, just that technically it's a 2-5 day service. used them 20-30 times with nearly all being 2 days


For anyone making comments about these, bad things can be said about most couriers unless paying real money. Like someone said, if you were to send a parcel worth £2500, you wouldn't pay a few quid to ship it. I sent a parcel with RM a few weeks back which went missing, and I put a claim in and now have a 4 week wait before I even hear back from them!!

cold. no protection, no signature and add £1 VAT


likewise - some people with no experience like to bandwagon jump


You only need to show a bank card with your name on it - no need to prove the address:


One major bug bear i have against RM is their stupid policy of missed delivery. I have items delivered to my grandparents because they are usually in to receive items, whereas i work full time (and a lot of overtime) If an item isn't delivered, it gets sent to the main sorting office in the town center - meaning i have to pay to park to go and collect it, during their narrow window opening times (which inconveniently co-incide with my working hours) When i get there - they demand ID (WHY!?! They were going to hand the parcel to someone without needing ID in the first place!! Why do they need ID now??) Requiring ID also presents a problem. Because the item was posted to my grandparents address and has their address on it (but my name), they arent usually happy with my ID due to the different address and i cant proove i live there because i dont! So i have to usually take my grandad with me to go and collect a parcel - but he doesnt have a passport, driving license or any form of ID so he brings a council tax bill and hopes for the best. Just a massive faff. So, instead i try and have the item redelivered to the same address. So far so good, except several days pass and no sign of the item. I phone RM to find out where it is, long story short - it was delivered to a completely different address!!!!! Lots more reasons why i hate them - ripped open parcels with an "apology" note taped to it, extortionate administration charges for overseas goods that were stopped at customs... the list goes on.

You might be saving a bit vs RM, but the PO will do you proof of postage for free for £20ish insurance. Plus typing all the info in printing label out, honestly not worth it and probably slower delivery than PO too.


Just reporting what I read in the news. "“Employers cannot opt out of their employment law obligations by defining individuals as self-employed. An individual’s employment status is established based on the reality of the working relationship.”"


Hermes couriers are self-employed. NMW doesn't apply.


Company is currently being investigated for paying their drivers under minimum wage. Everyone wants a bargain, sure , me included but this company has no ethics whatsoever. I asked our local driver if it was true and he said it is. I asked him why he continues to work there, and he said he can't find a job with any other courier locally :(

75cm that is pretty small for a parcel very restrictive the size for 12kg I think


Sorry to hear that. Well if this is not a very bulky item, then if you choose the second class delivery with no tracking info, there is a chance youll be charged only £2.80 for it. Obviously based on the accurate size and weight of your parcel you may quote the actual price from RM website.


Thank you so much for the information. It has a lot of headache I don't have any printer to print and I can't find any parcel shop near me so it's better to go to post office and send the parcel through Royal Mail it's less than 2kg it might be £5. Thank you from your great comment


You'll need to do the packaging. Collection. Or drop off depends o. The type of service you choose. If drop off selected (cheaper option) you need to take the parcel to a "parcel shop" yourself (not post office!). You also needs printer to print off the label before hand.

That's interesting as I have always been worried. Some of my parcels are 1.05kg, and I have gotten away with it so far. I guess maybe there is a leeway - good to know that it is not more than 200g so I won't risk anything once it gets that heavy.


Be careful about weight on myhermes direct - I just got a bill for a parcel I sent as 0-1kg which they weighed as 1.2kg (just 200g over!) they are asking for an extra £4 (difference plus a penalty) They have also reduced their standard compensation to £25 Royal mail small parcel is £2.80 up to 2kg which includes £20 compensation (though it's a PITA to claim and then only for cost)


agreed. just got onto parcel2go and its now 2.75 with no insurance. 2.78 if you book direct with £50 insurance - its a no brainer so gonna go direct. God knows what they are playing at!


Parcel2Go increased their fees for &lt;1kilo parcels using myHermes (drop off) from £2.34 to £2.75 earlier this week. WHO do they think will use this service, which has no insurance cover, when you can for an extra 5p book direct with myHermes and get cover up to £50 for the same parcel. Similar cover using P2G would be an extra £2.50(+vat) making a grand total of £5.75 !! Similar package sent via Royal Mail ( up to 2kilo with size limitations) would cost £2.80 with up to £20 free cover in event of loss, but without any tracking. Who in their right mind would book through P2G for small parcels ?


Anyone else get a price increase today? I went to price up a parcel (drop off at Parcel Shop) and it has increased from like £2.20 to £2.80! Now exactly the same price as direct from MyHermes...

I've been a major advocate of inpost until a recent episode where a delivery was supposedly attempted twice, a 'card left ' message updated on the tracking system that actually never was left, Interparcel via inpost stated that they don't always leave cards despite what the tracking says and that didn't constitue breach of terms, the recipient knew nothing of the attempted delivery, and so it was then decided to return to me as he hadn't collected after 2days after second delivery attempt. It then took 10 days to be returned to me. Interparcel have been shocking at dealing with it, simply refusing to admit any wrongdoing on the part of the courier, even though the picture they are meant to take of the property they visit was blank. It's annoying as Interparcel offer £50 cover as standard, so whilst I want to make my point, I'm being held to them for the price with cover.


They actually fixed that the other day. When you print a label now it has the tracking number on the label. That is the tracking number that will work when tracked on citylink. Also if the label won't scan you can manually enter it at the terminal when dropping it off. So it seems there is slight improvement. Outstanding issue is that they only deliver twice before requiring the recipient to collect and the depots can be quite far. If they fail the first time they automatically redeliver the next day or the day after unless you reschedule so that second attempt can be used up before the recipient realizes.


Used Inpost three times now and everything's been delivered within four working days, so certainly not the quickest out there. The tracking system as others have mentioned is somewhat horrendous - tracking numbers given on receipts don't work, and usually a completely different number is used. Delivery was confirmed in the end though through the Citylink website but Inpost's website is dreadful.


I used inpost (through parcel2go) without problem for a couple of times then they opened a set of lockers much nearer me. Trouble was, I think they forgot to tell the delivery driver cos they weren't collected for over a week. Didn't use them for a while but a recent injury means I can't walk far and these are literally just across the road from me, so sent off 7 parcels with them last week and they all arrived within 4 days of me sending them. So I'm very pleased at the service if it continues like that. I should also say that I printed the wrong address on one label (put number 1 instead of number 11 - duh). As soon as I contacted parcel2go they amended the delivery address and it got there just fine so I have no complaints at all really


Don't use parcel 2 go, use interparcel for inpost, £50 comp instead of £20 and customer service excellent. I made a claim for damage to a game case during transit, they paid the full value of the item within three days of claim.

Other than heavier their service is now pointless... £3.59 inc VAT £20 compensation :|


Probably because of all the claims they were losing too much money. And the price is back up to £2.99 now. Good for heavier stuff still that is cheap.


Looks like they've changed the compensation amount to £20.00 FREE Used to be £50.


I hope I'm not tempting fate as I've got a parcel out for delivery at the mo, but the 3 previous items I sent got there really quickly (the next day!) and problem free.


parcel2go is more efficient and tracking seems to work most times

Very good I can use it any time. Free Delivery


I agree with you. Different service can be good for different users. I however have used both the services on daily basis, i have given up on using Inpost via Parcel2go. I had more complains of INR and item returned without even trying to deliver to the buyer. I will wait for more good reviews of Inpost to start, before start using them again.


I've had more lost with Royal Mail than hermes or inpost. Hermes i've actually never had one lost with and i've sent 2-300. Inpost the tracking sucks but at £1.20 i was treating it as a cheap non tracked service, about half of them would track. If they get lost you can contact them and they seem to have tracking which is not uploaded or they make it up. I did get tracking for a few by asking. One item they could not find and i claimed with parcel2go and it was resolved in days. Painless. I have another one they gave me some dodgy tracking for but the customer says was not delivered but i'm not sure who to believe. At the same time as giving me the tracking they gave me a link to dispute and claim for the item. It's as if they know it is shoddy. lol Royal Mail lost an international signed for item and it took 4 months to get compensation. I then submitted a claim for a 2nd class parcel and normally they accept ebay and paypal printouts as proof of value but this time they demanded actual receipt (it actually cost more than what i sold it for anyway). I send that in and they said it will take another 3 months as they will now check with recipient. They really don't want to pay out and it is only worth £20. I've got another 2 lost packages with royal mail so i'll see how that goes. If you claim regularly because you send high volumes of stuff i notice they get more and more stringent and really do not want to pay out. RM are not necessarily better in my experience. I think it is better to judge when you've had some lost and gone through the process of claiming with them all.


That's quite unlucky. I've always used Parcel2go, and generally opt for the couriers that I have to drop the parcel off to a store or suchlike. Last week I sent one (for the first time) via the Inpost courier via P2G, and (luckily?) it was delivered ahead of schedule. Even RM mess up as well though, but it feels like certain courier companies have a far worse reputation than others. oO


Doing business with Inpost via Parcel2go. I have send parcel to customer around 50 days back, which was never delivered nor returned to me. When i opened a claim with Parcel2go, they say they located the parcel in Virtual e-world and rejected claim. Still no signs of physical parcel being returned or refund after 50 days. Big no to to Parcel2go and Inpost, Royalmail is expensive but gives you piece of mind.
