Step 1

Choose a sturdy box to sufficiently protect your items in transit. Remembering to remove any old labels or stickers.


Step 2

Keep breakages to a minimum by using internal packagings like bubble wrap or packing peanuts.


Step 3

Place a copy of the label inside your parcel.


Step 4

Once packaged, seal your parcel with parcel tape and attach labels securely ensuring the address is visible.


Step 5

Put a distinguishing mark on the box to make it easy to identify.


Step 6

Take a photo of your parcel for your records.

As long as you don't mind them arriving battered and damaged. Hermes guaranteed to damage something.
One of the worst companies to use, their customer service is awful (no contact number and takes ages to get a response by email). Had to claim recently as parcel was lost and it took two weeks to sort!
Hermes!!!!! DO NOT DO IT!
Parcel2go currently trying to chase me for an extra £3, because Hermes apparently measured the parcel to be 3x the length it actually was.

Apparently, contacting me 4 days later, and asking me to get the buyer to send in photos of the packaged item next to a tape measure is their process for this. Never again.

I have used them many times and can only recall once when my item arrived damaged

I used the online chat recently and was successful. They did transfer me to 2 other people though but eventually got it all sorted
Thy are terrible - frequently try to claim items are oversized (apparently I shipped a beanie in a box over a metre long) and then ignore your e-mails. I've now reached a point where I've sent a letter before action to see if that gets a response, if not it's off to court for costs we go!
You have to bear in mind that Hermes get paid on a per parcel delivery basis. They are therefore prepared to leave your parcel with anyone. We have had a lot of people locally complaining on our spotted page that parcels have been 'delivered' to wrong addresses. These people have been unable to get them back and believe either they were stolen by the recipients or by the drivers. There is also a history of parcels being left on doorsteps or in bins. Hermes currently have a massive backlog also so dont rely on for xmas delivery.

Hermes aren't great but there are worse companies like Yodel.
I booked a parcel through parcel2go last year, they picked it up, then a week later I got a phone call "hi, you have a parcel for us to collect"..... Errrr, no, you collected it a week ago
Hermes are rubbish. Just pay extra for Royal Mail to get your parcels delivered safely. Worth it.
Not even if they were free!
Sent a load of stuff of varying sizes through Hermes recently. All tracked correctly, arrived intact, earlier than predicted and not left in strange places. I have however had loads of strife with yodel and royal mail.
Iv used to alot a d never had an issue. I always make sure as much info is given so they can't lose it lol
Have used parcels2go and Hermes plenty of times and not had a problem.
i have 3 claims on the go from these apes with one returned back to me but it has not, one showing as waiting to pick up when it has been and one that has disappeared and not been seen for 3 weeks all valued at £54 each trying to contact them is like getting on platform 9 3/4
