 Sending large parcels has never been easier 

It’s cheap, quick and easy to send large parcels with Hermes

 Here at Hermes, we can handle parcels with a maximum weight of 15kg, maximum length of 120cm and with a combined length and circumference of no more than 245cm as standard. This means we can easily transport large items like bicycles, pushchairs or sound systems – perfect for sending birthday and Christmas gifts, or for small businesses that regularly ship large parcels.

To get a quote for your large parcel delivery just enter a few details and click ‘Get a quote now’. You’ll then need to tell us a little more about your parcel, including its value and contents. If you don’t already have an account with us, setting one up only takes a few seconds.

 You’ll also be able to give your parcel a reference which will be used on the label – this is great if you need to organise your parcels in a certain way or want to personalise your deliveries. 

 Covering your delivery 

Free compensation will be added to most orders, covering your parcel against loss, theft and damage up to the value of £20. You may want to consider increasing your cover if you’re sending more valuable items. This can be done for a small additional fee, covering items up to a maximum value of £300. Remember to check that your item is eligible for cover. While we can provide cover for most items there are some things (like TVs, cameras and expensive jewellery) that we can’t cover. Check our guide to non-compensation items before you send.

Even with large items you’ll still be able to choose from either courier collection from your doorstep or dropping your parcel off at one of our 5400+ ParcelShops nationwide.

Returning a large parcel to a retailer

If you’re returning a parcel to a retailer then you can choose from either a Standard return (up to 15kg) or a Large parcel return (up to 30kg). You’ll be given the option to choose one of these services when you book your return.
