Does anyone have a working telephone number for myHermes? My package (booked and paid for on 12 Oct for collection on 14th) has not been collected and I have contacted myHermes by email on their Contact Us link only to receive a non-reply email back saying "We apologise, but are unable to deal directly with you regarding your parcel enquiry. Please contact the company with whom you placed your order." !!!!!???? The telephone number I have (013479581***) is not recognised!

Just had some antique books arrive today that were sent by Hermes. They were left outside in the rain, the box they were sent in fell apart when I picked it up it was so wet, luckily the books are intact but I intend to pursue Hermes for some form of compensation. When I tracked my order it said parcel left in secure location. I hardly think stood in front of my car on the drive in the rain is very secure!!!!! It pi**sses me off that these books have happily lasted over 100 years, yet are nearly destroyed by some inept courier company. From now on I will be insisting that none of my deliveries use Hermes.

my parcel should have been picked wednesday im still waiting , the only contact is through electronic e mail which is slow and tedious and not human, ive tried the contact number to no avail , is this a sign another business is going to the wall, ill probably get bad feedback from my buyer as the package will arrive much later than promised thanks to my heremes.

Unfortunately we encountered some technical difficulties on Thursday and Friday last week which affected our collection schedule. Please accept our apologies. In future, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for prompt response, or if you have Twitter, get in touch with us there @myhermes, and we can help you out with any questions/problems.
Once again, apologies for any inconvenience.

I concur with all of the above about MyHermes. Left a message on my door, says phone the number below if you have queries, and lo and behold....no number was left. Second attempt is on Monday and I will not be home on Monday but there's no way for me to get that message to them. So that will be two attempts. Will they leave their number the second time?....who knows.

Well, my customer has missed their delivery 3 times (the 3rd time they claimed, waited in all day, but they only were left with a calling card!)
My point, is now that I'm trying to contact My Hermes, to find out what I can do, either, re-schedule for the customer or request the item be sent back to me. I plan to use Royal Mail, as at least they can leave the parcel at the local post depot for the customer to collect the item itself.
Will probably have to receive bad feedback from the customer and refund monies. Contacting My Hermes is slow and virtually expensive to call up.
Probably first & last time I use them for ebay items. It's not worth the hassle and frustration to use these guys - cheap as it is!
"Pay peanuts...you get monkeys!", comes to mind!

Never use Hermes..!apparently they tried to deliver twice according to tracking online delivery but never left a leaflet behind,considering they alway deliver during the working hours its pointles to try to re deliver every five days same time!they answerphone says they are open till half 8pm but if you call at 8.25 pm theier offices are closed!so i spent money on something i will never get!worst company ever!

Good old Rosie coming to the rescue!!!!! I dint think it possible but old herpes customer support is worse than their handling.They have given up responding to my complaints
Finally the Royal Mail battleship is coming out of the harbour having now recognised that online retailing is a major profit centre r buisness.I think the ony reason ebay customers dont use Royal Mail isthat you cant do it online or use paypal which has allowed dresdful operaters like my hermes to flourish

The Telephone number for Hermes is 0330 333 6556.
This was very hard to get hold of as they do not want to be contacted by phone. They prefer webchat with some indian trained parrot who has only a set of standard answers

For me his is the second time that myHermes have failed to show up to collect parcels. Collection was scheduled for Thursday 20 Sept and it's now 17h22 on Friday 21st and they still haven't come - even after rescheduling.
Thanks for posting the telephone number - I've phoned it countless times today and been cut off at least 5 times. I eventually just got through but was refused permission to speak to a manager to complain.
The call centre lackey kept apologising that we had wasted 2 days waiting for their courier to turn up. Apologies are worthless - they mean nothing to me or the person who utters them.
myHermes may be the cheapest sometimes but they are extremely unreliable. If you value your Seller ratings on ebay then do NOT use myHermes.

not had much dealing with hermes but someone sent a parcel on my behalf through them
there was a query re delivery and i phoned 08435158172
to be fair it was answered within 1 - 2 mins and girl was very helpful
if you do use my hermes i would advise doing so through parcels2go - they are very helpful on your behalf if there is a problem

Completely agree with some of the feedback in this thread - myHermes is by far THE worst company I have ever dealt with. Every organisation has customer complaints from time to time and eventually they will respond albeit you may not like the outcome.
I dispatched 3 items in early December, two sailed through and one was damaged in their depo during that fire they had at one of the regional distribution centres. My buyer reported the damage and I filed a Damage Claim with myHermes with pics from my buyer.
Following a torturous exchange of numerous emails (& I do mean numerous over a period of following 5-wks) - drip, drip each asking a specific detail about the item. I eventually asked the claim to be escalated and they reimbursed.
Issue - I am still out of pocket while I had to reimburse my buyer in full.
I have now escalated this incident 3 times. First time they did not respond at all. I called and re-issued my complaint with meticulous audit trail of dates/time and precisely what happened.
The 3rd time they finally responded and it is clear that they have not even read the full complaint otherwise they would not reject my escalation with a flimsy reason that is just so wrong.
Incidentally, in this protracted exchange of emails, once they sent me a response with personal details of a customer that had absolutely nothing to do with my complaint. The 2 incidences would not be further apart if you tried so how myHermes got them mixed up, I have no idea.
Would not touch them again, ever.

Having read through the horror stories mentioned here and from my own experience of Herpies, I was expecting never to recieve the package that was sent to me. Thanks to the OP who posted the contact number for them, I rang and after several different voices telling me my call was important, I get through to a guy called Steve. He tries to contact self employed driver.. no answer, but promises to ring me back.
We shall see.
to be updated..

Dreadful. I will not use them again. Trying to return an item to the retailer - it was collected but has been stuck in their central hub for 2 weeks and I'm waiting to see if they can find it or not. I managed to get the phone number from the retailer (
0871 246 1583) after giving up trying to contact them via their website (most of the email options come up with a message saying contact the retailer).
I was on hold for a good 10 mins before someone answered.
I shall stick to Royal Mail next time - you get what you pay for.

Does anyone have a free phone number for myhermes?
I have been waiting for days for an item to be delivered from them. It's been one excuse after another.
The lastest excuse (Courier couldn't deliver as they can't gain access to my house!) I live on a country lane. My house is along the road. I have a huge driveway! I have no way of prohibiting access!!!
I wouldn't advise anyone to use this courier service.

sorry all i would for get this out fit.the phone number cost you 10p a minet.do not wast your money.
i lost so much with this lot......i have gone back to the post office.
some thing you can do is complain to the ffair trading offfice,
or to trading standheard,
DO NOT USE HERMES....THERE OVER THE WATER.THERE NO A UK COMPANY.
DO NOT TRUST ENY OF THE DEPO S YOUR ITEM WILL BE A MESS.
LOST ITEMS ARE PUT IN A CAGE.AND SOLD OF IN TIME.
CHECK THE DEPO OUT FOR YOUE SELF.
THANK FROM JOE.
