Four large packages ( wheels ) picked up as promised on Friday at 1pm in Portsmouth UK .
Delivered 10 am to my home address in Co. Kerry SW Ireland at 10 am Monday.
Courier was DPD but all arrangements made through Parcel Hero at a price cheaper than DPD could offer dealing with them direct .
Tracking was first class with every event logged giving me a clear indication where my packages were and when.
I would have no hesitation in using your services again .
Parcel delivered in good condition, on time with notification to me. Excellent service. Thank you - recommend this company.
Placed order on line and they picked up and delivered on the right days and no damage
The delivery was reasonably priced and although it said 4/5 days, at the end of the transaction it said posted 12th and received 19th (guaranteed) And it was perectly, week to go all around the world, 9.5k for £50, I'll use again (and have done) and recommended to others.
After a lifetime of shipping engineering items around the world, now retired I used ParcelHero for a personnel reason and they did exactly what was promised and kept me fully informed throughout the delivery complete with a thank you from the recipiant, you cannot ask for more, thank you.
Good to be able to compare prices which differed dramatically! Parcel collected and delivered as promised so all fine.
I had two heavy Ebay parcels to send (31kgs in total and 2 mtrs long) and ParcelHero were by far the cheapest. The nearest competition was £25 more expensive and one was £50 more! Using their web site was simplicity itself and the system gave me everything I needed to send the parcel. I chose the cheapest option which was a 24 fully tracked delivery service with UPS. In fact it was nearly too good a service - I was working on Sunday and was about to book when I suddenly realised they would collect on Monday and I didn't even have any wrapping equipment! The parcels were collected on Tuesday afternoon and delivered Wednesday morning and ParcelHero sent me an email to confirm delivery. I was also able to log on to the UPS site and get the same information. I would certainly use this company again for heavy stuff. I haven't compared their prices for normal parcels but I will next time.
Clear display of prices and time required for the delivery from various couriers at a glance. Easy steps to make an order. Once order was confirmed, instructions to place the printed labels on the parcel could be better with more details, but a very polite courier (I selected UPS) who arrived on time was able to help me out. My urgent document was delivered to the destination on the day as indicated when I placed the order. Overall excellent services from both ParelHero and UPS. Highly recommended!
The service is excellent. I love the fact that I could trace the progress of the delivery. Moreover, the item was delivered ahead of the agreed time. I would not hesitate to recommend it or to use it myself again.
I was very pleased with the service and highly recommend it. I would use it again.

With Hermes you don’t have to wait in at home for collection, you can drop your package at a nearby shop to save you time and money. Hermes offer two delivery services, collections and drop offs.
With collection, a Hermes driver comes to your door to pick up your parcel. The parcel is then delivered to the address that you told us when you booked the delivery. If your collection doesn't take place on first try for any reason, Hermes will attempt to collect two times over the following two days.
If you don’t want to wait for collection you can choose to drop off your package; instead of a Hermes driver collecting your parcel, you take it to a drop-off shop or location. There are many drop off shops around the UK, these are easy to find by using our tool below.
Hermes started in 2009 and quickly grew into one of the UK’s most popular courier services. They successfully deliver over 290 million parcels a year, developing into one of the most trusted names in the industry. Hermes employ over 9,000 local freelance couriers who work hard to collect the awaiting parcels from their area.
Hermes delivers to the UK and a selection of European countries. Hermes do not offer next day delivery, they offer economy and super economy services.
Tracking a Hermes package is easy, simply copy and paste the tracking number we gave you when you booked into our tracking system. The Hermes order is then displayed on the screen.
You can now see time your parcel has been scanned, and how close to your destination address the parcel is.
Before you package the items you want to ship, ensure that they are eligible to be sent via Hermes, and make sure that the parcel will not be too big or heavy to fit in a Hermes delivery vehicle.
There are also prohibited items that cannot be sent through ParcelHero®, these items cannot be sent due to the danger that they pose after delivery or during transit. For a comprehensive breakdown of all prohibited items, please see ParcelHero’s list of prohibited items.
You can choose to have Hermes deliver your parcel to international destinations as well as UK addresses. You can send your parcel via collection or by using a drop-off location. The delivery will work much the same way as a domestic delivery except expect the delivery to take more time.
The Isle of Man is one of our most popular destinations to ship to, using Hermes to ship there couldn’t be easier. We offer both collection and drop off Hermes services to the island, and as The Isle of Man is part of the UK there are no customs forms you need to worry about before shipping.
