There may be some poor delivery people and there may be some problems with parcels not being packaged well enough I've never had a problem myself with Hermes sending or receiving https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.myhermes.co.uk
Normally it is the parcels that arrive with 10% off - nice change that it is the price.
Used a lot lately, happy with the service, especially at Christmas, everything took 2 days unlike royal mail. Had one item to missing after customer refused by accident, took about a month and a half to come back to me but eBay had already sided case with me. For all the hate, it's a cheap service that works with full tracking. Hermes means I can sell those £20 items on eBay and actually compete. Plenty of other carriers available for expensive items. Keep in mind for certain sizes UPS may be cheaper with the 10% off promo they're running at the moment
Or pay slightly more for a reliable delivery service! Hermes = Cowboys

10% off delivery on parcels weighing over 2kg (Terms Apply / Offer does not apply to Shetland or Outer Hebrides) @ myHermes
ok, not everybody cup of tea but might be useful to some people out there.
No one cares, they’re the worst parcel firm on this planet
This offer has now been extended until 14 March 2021
Shocking service, avoid
Good luck to any brave enough to use this crew. I’ve had far too many issues with them not delivering to me over the years.
I'm still waiting for a Christmas present that was out for delivery on the 15th December, with the distribution centre only being about 15 minutes from where I live. Last update it was taken back to the centre for an unknown reason, with no movement since (mad)

Hermes have dropped their 2-10kg price - £5.99£5.99
They don't seem to have announced this yet but Hermes seem to have reduced their 2-10kg parcel rate for all customers to £5.99 . I send about 100 parcels a week with them and so… Read more
I've had no big issues with Hermes. Also Royal Mail have lost around 6 of my parcels/large letters, however have always refunded me the price of my item (£20 or under) and postage cost... I make a claim online and have a cheque a week or two later.
Hermes on the news last night - biggest carrier in europe so naturally will have more problems but very cynical upping the prices when they are already making a fortune - (they will probably just make the usual Brexit excuse as well) just pure greed especially the way they treat their delivery people who have to use their own vehicles which is a helluva cost to start with but then we all want cheap postage and once they corner the market business practice is such that the prices go up to screw the wee man! ;(
...EE...but thank you.
Thing is, certain hubs of certain couriers are diligent, if they know you (for instance) & if a parcel happens to pass through their hub, the Hermes local to me sucks @ss & due to my (justified) complaints rather than "bend over & take it " expectations they now go all out to cause MORE problems. At least when it happens the seller gets to see the dark side of this shi-ite show of a courier & its 95% "DNGAF" employees. Hope you got onto better things Darkwaxer.
I have to agree but its the same with almost every company in the UK now. As Dilbert says "Management = Natures way of removing morons from the productive cycle" (shock)

"Out of codes We've temporarily run out of codes for Hermes. We've raised this issue with them and will be receiving more codes soon. Please check back shortly." I wonder if this will be fixed soon....
Any unidays code that someone can send me?
Can someone message me a unidays code if ok. Thanks Ross
Hermes are the worst. Countless deliveries that never arrive and the tracking just goes cold. Customer service are robots reading from script. Not worth the hassle! It still amazes me how many companies to choose to use them for deliveries, as it reflects bad on them imo.
If you pack well shouldn't have a problem. Use in store print label.

My Hermes courier 20% student discount£2.24
I’ve just noticed myhermes offer 20% discount to student At this time of the year EVERY PENNY COUNTS All you need to do is verify your UNiDAYS ID
OP, u saved me a little over £4 today posting 6 parcels all insured to full value. Will start using it as cheaper than royal mail for any package fully insured to value.
Yodel at least deliver and don’t make me ring all and sundry to get them to authorise delivery ... I wouldn’t mind but with Hermes it’s the same woman she knows who I am so why every time I get a delivery does she put it on hold for a security check to confirm authorisation to deliver to my home... it’s frustrating to say the least.
Keyword alert? Huha? Not so deals, you might need to sort your search out. I never signed up for this crap
Just to add a positive spin on myhermes, I've sent over 350 parcels with them, and not had a single one go missing or arrive damaged. Their prices are just about the cheapest around and their website is very user friendly too in my opinion.
I think Yodel is worst then this but saying that both should be out of the buisness !!!

It's not just the drivers, it's the company at its heart - see above. STAY AWAY from Hermes and myHermes too. Vile company.
Insuring your parcel doesn't count for sh*t. I've got a claim with them open for returning £84 worth of trainers they lost. They're a nightmare. They lost the parcel but of course never told me. They then ignored my making a claim. I finally was able to submit one and they lied several times. Then they stopped contacting at all. Three chat agents in and they've all lied to me about getting back to me. They now won't pay the full amount despite me fully proving what the returns are worth. Don't go near them with a bargepole. I've specifically posted on an old HUKD just to let fellow members know they are SCUMBAGS of a company. Stay away!
I think its the delivery drivers, not the company itself. I had ordered thornton chocolates last christmas and out of 4 boxes, it was just 3 in the packaging, the packing was torn and retaped, complained to thorntons and they found the driver to be mischief.
It's to get people using this facility,but there's no option to pay for extra insurance you are only covered for 20.00
Hermes are starting to make you jump through hoops if something is say left outside a door which they deem in their own terms is NOT a safe place but because it's had a last delivery scan AND a picture outside the property I have been told that the recipient must fill in a denial of receipt form. I've had messages back & forth and getting nowhere because I said to them where does it say in your terms that when I pay extra for insurance and the recipient says they don't have the parcel that I can't get a refund unless they fill the form in. So why am I paying insurance if a pay out is reliant upon the buyer filling out said form :-(
That's odd as the information online saying which stores have it is correct where I live.

Poor experience with myHermes. Used to send low value items in spare Dell branded boxes... quite a few were "lost". After wrapping the boxes up to hide the branding, zero parcels were "lost". Better and more reliable service with UPS and DPD.
great finds thanks :)
I was wondering the same. FOund a comment above that says currently you can't change to a higher amount when you Pay & Print Instore
With Pay&Print, does anyone know if the standard £20 cover can be increased to £50 ? Signature option available ?
Tried this way yesterday so heat from me had no idea this print service in shop even existed and the price is great tho as said im used to ebays shutl and using ups for over 5 kg items this is definately the cheapest way for 2-5 parcels ie royal mail are a joke at anything over 2kg jumps to about £12-13.
