Sending a parcel with myHermes is easy but there are a few things you need to know about how we measure parcels. This will ensure your parcel is suitable for us, and that you’re choosing the right options for your parcel.
We have 2 sizes of parcel and 4 weight bands. Which size your parcel fits into depends on its dimensions and weight.
Here's how we decide if a parcel is small:
A small parcel could fit into a box measuring 45cm length, 35cm width and 16cm height and weighs less than 2kg.
We can’t accept really large parcels. By really large we mean anything that weighs over 15kg and is longer than 1.2m.
We also have a maximum allowed volume which cannot be greater than 245cm. To work out the volume, you need to add together the 2 shortest dimensions and multiply this by 2. Add the length and if the number you get is less than 245 then you’re good to go. Here’s a quick example:
A tube can weigh up to 15kg and must be less than 120cm in length and less than 20cm in diameter.
If you’re still not sure of your parcel’s size then try out our simple parcel size calculator. Enter your parcel's dimensions and we’ll do the rest.
