    £5.10 to send a goose neck!
    £3.00 to send one brush socket!

    What the hell!

    They are charging on size and weight now.

    It is cheaper for me to book my parcels at myhermes and then they come and collect them!!!!!

    Such a shame

    It depends on the couriers. As most people who work for my Hermes are self employed.

    Used em for about a year on bigger stuff. So far so good.

    I always take insurance tho!!!

    Those guys are paid 50p per bloody parcel and that includes their petrol. They have to be registered as self employed and therefore, no minimum wage, it's a terrible business.

    [SIZE=10.5pt]I’ve paid over a £1,000 in a month on postage with the Royal Mail; I asked them for some free plastic postage bags, and only once got given a full pack of bags. :Image4: [/SIZE]

    I made an online order last night paid etc.. £5 postage.. Company is in England... Got an email today to say £5 is only for mainland uk.. It's an extra £12 for postage to Belfast.. On top of the £5... £17 postage for a £28 order.. Absolute joke..
