Hermes are a parcel courier company that I started using recently. Relations of mine are in the process of starting a small business in their spare time, which involves the postage of fairly large packages. Hermes was one of the first reasonably priced couriers which appeared on a search and the...

Excellent

Quick, easy and cheap

Service level may depend on local couriers

There is a lot of negative feedback for Hermes, however as an occasional Ebay seller I have sent 4 Ebay deliveries through them now with no issues, so I thought I would balance things by sharing my latest experience with you. Cost ------- I use a store drop off (more on this later) which gives a...

Satisfactory

They have lots of couriers

They are unreliable

I buy quite a lot of things online and that means that I am often on the receiving end of deliveries. I live in a rural area which means deliveries can arrive at all times of the day so it is hard to plan your day if you are waiting for a delivery. Parcel firms vary in their efficiency and with a...

“Inaccurate service!”

published 16/09/2012

packaged arrived safely, in excellent condition

timing of delivery and notice is awful

Earlier this week, I decided to treat myself to a new bag. I thought, "you know what I work too hard and I deserve something nice!" I hadn't bought a bag in ages and had been looking around a while, and as usual with my laziness I decided to buy one online. After a bit of browsing on different...

I have very patiently (and politely) spent the last two weeks trying to obtain some sort of delivery timescale for an item I ordered from House of Fraser on 5th December 2010 BS (before snow). It is now 22nd December 2010 AS (after snow) and sadly still no parcel and I have today been informed by...

ZERO in fact sub zero

More than I have space to write up on!

Been 17 days since Hermes aka Parcelnet were instructed to deliver a consignment to our residential address. Frankly dealing with a company that does not publish its phone number or answer e-mails should tell you all you need to know. Just as bad is their phantom drop carding as reported on their...

I too thought that MyHermes was a new company, taking advantage of the postal strike to bring us a new service - wrong! I decided to send a CD as a present. Filled in everything online, paid with Paypal, received the confirmation email saying the package would be collected on the Thursday - wrong...

“Unreliable Service”

published 01/09/2011

None

Unreliable, rude drivers, no customer service

Last Sunday I booked Hermes to collect a parcel on the Tuesday through parcel2go. I have used parcel2go several times before but usually book DHL, however, this time DHL was not available as an option. I chose Hermes primarily on the basis that it offered the cheapess service. On Tuesday I waited...

Super

Quite fast, nice driver, accurate tracker system

No contact details for Hermes

I've never dealt with Hermes before so I decided to look them up online. I was quite shocked and disappointed at how many bad reviews I found, and immediately regretted my purchase (I purchased a small item off BrandAlley), thinking it was never going to make it to me. I am pleased to say that it...

None - it eventually got here but that's about it

Very high rate of damaged and missing parcels

I ordered a framed stadium picture for my partner for Christmas, it turned up a few days ago after seemingly being at the 'hub' for a good few days. The box looked intact but as I wanted to see what the picture looked like I opened it - I was mortified to find the frame was smashed to smithereens...

How is it possible to lose a tracked parcel? I don't know and neither do Hermes, apparently. The tracking shows it was delivered on 24th December, but I was in all day and nobody called or left a card. I have spent around three hours - on an 0871 number, no less, which will cost me an absolute...

No office or customer support contact

As other reviewer has stated, no telephone or any kind of contact is no good. I got my dress that I had ordered in good enough time, no problems there. But I didn't like it and a arranged a return. Well this turned out to be a month long headache for me. I had a collection date, which came and...

I shop regularly using mail order companies and the main one that I use employs Hermes for their deliveries. I always choose the next day delivery option so that I can receive my goods quicker. Unfortunately, I have found Hermes to be as much use as an inflatable dartboard. With each order that I...

Unless you are sending something that is made of rubber and can bounce do not use this courier service, I sent 6 beautiful vintage tea sets with this company and they managed to break an item in every parcel. The items were well wrapped and padded up and I had fragile stickers on each parcel but...
