    Parcel sizes - MyHermes....

    Need to send a 6 kilo parcel, was going to use MyHermes, but just noticed it says maximum width of 31cm.....My parcel is approx 80cm long, 60cm wide and 3cm high. So under there stated total calculation of 245cm. Can anyone advise if they`ve sent parcels wider than 31cm......Or recommend any other cheap couriers for that size please? Thanks

    Myhermes maximum width is 35cm so yours is under. I use myhermes on a daily basis, you wont find anywhere else cheaper.
    . . If you add the two shortest dimensions and multiply them by two, add the length, the total calculation needs to be under 245cm.

    Try postage supermarket

    Also try p4d. I use them a when sending large ebay items. Just put you parcel details in and it will give you the delivery options available and some even collect the parcel too. p4d.co.uk/

    Thanks for that, never heard of p4d before!
    Yes this is an ebay sale - wish I`d noticed the 31cm max width before - under quoted for postage!
    Any hows got a quote not much more than Myhermes with UPS access point with p4d, have you used them before? It is delivered to door, they don`t have to collect the other end do they?! As says UPS access!
    Thanks

    The only people I have used so far with p4d is parcel force as I have always needed my parcels collected from my home due to size. It does say here though that when using the ups access point the parcel is delivered to the door of the recipient.

    Turn it on its side = 3cm wide, 60cm long and 80cm high. Interparcel don't seem to care which way you turn a parcel with your specified weight & dimensions interparcel.com/

    Emailed Hermes at midnight, just got reply, fair dues at least they replied quickly.....Prob pay an extra couple quid & go with parcel force. Will def make sure I check measurements properly in future....

    "Thank you for e-mailing us at myHermes.

    I am sorry unfortunately you cannot send this parcel however all the dimensions should be in limit."

    Parcel Hero will search for your best deal, there was a discount code for first time users on hotukdeals recently. I used and found it very helpful + good tracking, sending updates to receiver too
