- Anyone use 'Hermes' for delivery?
Used several times and will continue using.
Basic concept as far as I can tell:
Local agent pitches up at a time suitable for them (for us she’s here 1100 or 1430)Posted 4 years ago
She hands parcel to Hermes driver that evening.
Hermes deliver (I assume to another local agent)
They deliver to final addressspacehopperSubscriber
got a JMC poster delivered by them… tube dented.. end popped out.. poster ruined.
on the flipside i sent out some Renthal Bars by them last week as the package was too long(!!!) for royal mail and parcelfarce at the post office wanted over a tenner!
and they got there fine..Posted 4 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
I’ve sent with them twice now.Posted 4 years ago
Both times it was a 48hr service even though I don’t think they guarantee it. Goods arrived fine (or at least I didn’t have any complaints from buyers!)
Roughly half the cost of RM special delivery, but the drop-off point is a couple of miles away, so I tend to combine it with other shopping.cycl1ngjbMember
Since RM became even more expensive I’m using MyHermes more and more.
Probably shipped about 50 parcels with them in the last 18 months – yet to have an issue.
Likewise Collect + which is fairly similar – sent about 50 parcels with them in the last 18 months – yet to have an issue – even had somebody claim an item sent via Collect + hadn’t arrived. I supplied the details of the shipment to PP & they favoured me, not the buyer!Posted 4 years agoMrSynthpopMember
Awful company in my experience, my local (delivery) driver smokes in his car so everything stinks of cigs. Had two work related packages go astray including one that was ‘signed for’ (hoho) fifteen minutes after the driver picked it up. If you have a good ‘final mile’ driver then it works well for the reasons above, if not then you’re screwed.
Still they are cheap so lots use them, I can see why people would send via them.Posted 4 years ago
