Comments from customers who have sent parcels from Colchester.
Very good service, parcel was collected on the following day and delivered the day after. It would have been very helpful though to have had a text notification advising of a collection time slot rather than having to wait in all day.
Was trying to return a dog kennel to Amazon via Hermes - Hermes continually failed to turn up for the pick-up. In the end Amazon asked me to arrange a pick-up using Parcel Monkey UK who employed Royal Mail to pick up my box with no problem at all. I honestly despair with Hermes it is the worst service Ive ever come across & my heart sinks when I order something and see that theyre using Hermes to deliver my parcel...as it never comes. I now have the inconvenience of claiming back my postage to Parcel Monkey UK from Amazon...but heigh ho...as long as Hermes are still in business...
Great service though occasionally there is a wait for the labels, if you’re trying to send something in a hurry...to catch the Parcelforce collection from the p.o. For example then it can be annoying. Having said that prices are competitive, always use when sending larger parcels. Could do with a couple more options when the parcel is over 1.5mt long though as prices get silly in that bracket. Otherwise a good all round service.
Excellent service. There was a delay in delay in delivery but recipient received a text about this.
I had expected the parcel to take 4 or 5 days it took 8 but at the moment everything is a bit crazy
Great service definitely use again
