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

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

You forgot to add theres no compensation for this offer, if you want compensaion its still the normal price
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

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 New and unread just be starting to force the competitions standards a little higher too!
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!

Hermes failed to pick up one of my parcels 3 days running. When I … Hermes failed to pick up one of my parcels 3 days running. When I contacted them they told me to take the parcel to a drop off point.... defeats the whole idea of their collection service. The worst bit is their tracking system is a complete lie! According to that my parcel was with the recipients local courier, awaiting delivery. When in fact it was sat in my hallway. on the 4th day they did turn up, without an apology or anything. Took weeks to get a partial refund and despite asking several times they refused point blank to comment on the tracking info. I will never use Hermes again.


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.

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.

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!

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

Even Royal Mail staffs now dumps parcel in bin One did for me yesterday.



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.

I seriously don't have any good feedback regarding Parcel2Go. I used them for about 18 parcel deliveries, and I had 2 breakages, one parcel was 'overweight' (£4.65 extra charge), and a parcel that was supposed to be delivered to Glasgow that was sat in a Glasgow warehouse for a week, before being sent to Milton Keynes, where they then told me it would be destroyed in 48 hours if I didn't get it collected from there! On their tracking system, it stated that the parcel had been 'delivered' on 3 separate occasions! I had numerous conversations with them regarding these discrepancies, but, their customer service skills leave a lot to be desired! Will not be using them again!
As a new business, I can not afford service like this.

Be careful about weight on myhermes - 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)
I've used MyHermes for a few months now, no issues with any of my parcels so far. But yes, Royal Mail can be cheaper (especially for signed-for and 1-2kg).

Pity that Parcel2Go are now not as cheap as before for MyHermes parcels. Definitely go direct like this post says.

I wonder how Yodle and Doddle and Collect+ compete? Their prices are all substantially higher than MyHermes.
I've been a regular myHermes user for a couple of years - over 500 parcels sent, 2 lost but full eBay price compensation issued quickly without jumping through the hoops that Royal Mail provide - even on Signed For services they won't refund unless the intended recipient confirms non-delivery. Not much good if the eBay seller has already refunded after threat of negative feedback. My biggest gripe with myHermes has been the practice of leaving parcels in supposedly secure locations which turn out to be unlocked porches, dustbins, etc. I'd imagine that couriers are only paid for delivery so it's not in their financial interest to try repeated delivery attempts, especially for unsigned parcels. So safety of delivery depends on the conscience of the individual courier.
Anyway, myHermes have now put up prices substantially at the cheaper end - I've found (rather surprisingly) that Royal Mail 2nd signed for is now much cheaper for parcels up to 2kg and £50 - but for how long?
Oh, and I avoid parcel broker companies like Parcel2go - use them as a reference for price then go direct to the carrier. The latter are generally cheaper and don't tend to charge a premium for paying with Paypal.

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.

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 <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...
