myHermes lowered their prices a week ago on the 5th of November. Somehow we missed the change (despite their new advert on Tamebay and sending a parcel via their service!!). However a sharp eyed Tamebay reader notice that their latest delivery costs had dropped and they’re saving on every parcel that they send.
The price drop is 25p per parcel across all four myHermes price bands. It looks like this could well be a reaction to Royal Mail’s introduction of a new small parcel size announced at the end of October. Couriers and postal service are very competitive and whilst 25p per parcel might not sound much it certainly adds up over the course of the year and is a massive investment for myHermes to make.
For reference myHermes full price schedule is below. They offer three service options – door to door collection and delivery on a 3 day courier service or drop off at ParcelShop or drop off at a Parcel Locker for a 2 day service.
