Pro Tips for users of the Hermes customer service

Hermes has gone from strength to strength over the years, making it one of the United Kingdom’s most sought after delivery courier services.

Hermes is the UK choice for quality of service and price of product. With about 200 million parcels being delivered each year on behalf of some of the best retailers in the UK, Hermes delivers on time and reliably.

In June 2012 Hermes launched the ParcelShops project – allowing customers (recipients) to collect their goods from a nearby (local to them) store instead of having to wait in. This has been incredibly successful and Hermes now boasts over 5000 ParcelShops around the UK

Hermes delivers for and on behalf of some great High Street names such as Debenhams, QVC, JD Williams and Next Directory.
