Sending long parcels with Hermes is quick and easy. We can accept packages up to 1.2 metres long making it easy to send your super-sized items, from flat-pack furniture to sports equipment.

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 245cm. 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.

How much will it cost to send a long parcel?

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.

Can I have a long parcel collected?

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 5400+ UK ParcelShops. Drop off your long parcel at your closest ParcelShop at a time that suits you.

Hermes delivers to over 190 countries, simply start typing the destination you’d like to send your parcel to, specify your weight and get your quote. It’s that simple.
