Long parcels (over 1m in length) can be tricky to send but Hermes can easily transport everything from bikes to pushchairs to golf clubs. Your parcel can weigh up to 15kg and should be no more than 120cm long and have a combined length and circumference of no more than 225cm. It’s fine to use postal tubes (although triangular tubes are less likely to fall off our conveyor belts) but they should have a maximum diameter of 20cm. Check our handy parcel size guide for more information.
Our delivery costs are based on weight, not length. So, whether your parcel is long or short, our prices are competitive. £20 parcel cover is included as standard too, and both you and the recipient will be able to track your parcel through its journey.
It’s just as quick and easy to arrange a long parcel delivery as it is for smaller parcels. You can still use our parcel courier collection service, where your friendly local courier will pick up your parcel from your door. Or you can use one of our 5000+ UK ParcelShops. Drop off your long parcel at your closest ParcelShop at a time that suits you.
Sending or returning something? Your friendly courier can collect your parcel from you or you can drop it at one of our 5000+ local ParcelShops (usually your local convenience store or corner shop).
Expecting a parcel? If you're not going to be home, just divert to a neighbour or ask us to leave it in a safe place.
