Hermes Send Terms & Conditions

The small print (made bigger)…

It is important that you read all of these terms and conditions to understand how we will provide services to you. To help you navigate your way through these terms and conditions, we have summarised what we think are the most important bits below.

Our contract with you

When you send a parcel with us, you enter into a contract with Hermes Parcelnet Limited. These terms and conditions set out your responsibilities and our service commitments to you, along with some legal bits about our liability and how you will be compensated in the unlikely event that things go wrong.

It is important that you read these terms and condition carefully, and in particular the rest of this The small print (made bigger) section and Conditions 4 and 5 below which set out how we limit our liability to you.

Your responsibilities

You must ensure that you don’t:

  • send anything that is on the Prohibited Items list (see the “Goods that I can’t send” section below);
  • send or try to send any Parcels that we do not accept for carriage; or
  • send any Goods which are illegal, the carriage of which is illegal, or the supply of such Goods to the Recipient is illegal.

You must also:

  • ensure that the size and weight of your parcel matches the size and weight you declare the Parcel to be in your Order (for further detail please see our Parcel Size Guide which form part of these terms and conditions);

IMPORTANT: if we find that your Parcel is bigger and/or heavier, then we reserve the right to require you to pay Additional Expenses, being the correct Charges and an Administration Fee (please see Conditions 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 below for more detail).

  • ensure that the item you wish to send is properly labelled with a Hermes label showing the barcode. It must be well packaged and protected against knocks and bumps that it may encounter when travelling along our conveyor belts. Parcels must be packaged in accordance with our Packaging Guide.

The above are just the highlights. The full list of your responsibilities and obligations are set out in Condition 2 below.

Goods that if I send, I won’t be compensated for if lost or damaged

It is important that you check that the item you wish to send is not on our Non-Compensation Items list.

These are items that we can deliver for you, but due to their nature, we can’t guarantee that they will be Delivered undamaged or lost. This is because such “non-compensation items” might not survive the knocks and bumps they are likely to experience along their journey through our automated network.

We want to make it clear to you that we can’t accept liability if such items are lost or damaged on the way. If you do choose to send your parcel with us, we strongly advise you to ensure they are thoroughly protected and packaged. You will not be entitled to compensation for any Non-Compensation items.

Electrical or electronic equipment

As we cannot test whether any electrical or electronic equipment that you provide to us in a Parcel is functioning properly before we deliver it for you, we cannot accept liability for any Damage or loss of data except where:

i. you can show, to our reasonable satisfaction, that the Goods were fully functioning before they came into our physical possession; and

ii. such Damage to the Goods was caused by our negligence.

Goods that I can’t send

It is extremely important that you ensure that you do not send anything which is on our Prohibited Items list.

If you do send something which is on this list, we will not accept any responsibility for any loss or damage to it, and we may require you to compensate us and any affected third parties if your parcel causes any damage, injury or loss. You will not be entitled to compensation for any Prohibited Items.

For further detail please see Conditions 4 and 5.

Indemnity: when you may have to compensate us

You must read this carefully: If you breach these terms and conditions, and such breach causes harm or damage to any person, our property or third-party property, or in the event that you are liable to pay us any Additional Expenses or Administration Fee, we reserve the right to require you to compensate us in full if we suffer any loss, damages, costs or expenses as a result.

So, for example, if you send something which is on the Prohibited Items list and it hurts someone, or damages other people’s parcels while on one of our vans, you will be required to compensate us and anyone affected for the damage caused. Other examples might include paint, which has leaked over other parcels, live animal feed (e.g. cockroaches) or flammable liquids which cause a fire and put our Parcel People at risk.

How I can protect my Parcel: Full Cover

Our liability for lost or damaged Parcels is limited under Conditions 4 and 5. However, you can buy additional protection for loss or damage during the Order booking process. Please note that you may not be entitled to the Full Cover if your Parcel is not adequately packaged, if it is a Non-Compensation or Prohibited Item.

Our service commitments to you

The Services commence as soon as we (or one of our ParcelShops) are in physical possession of your Parcel. If we are unable to deliver your Parcel to the Address, we will make two further attempts to deliver it (the “Further Attempts”). If we’re still unable to deliver your Parcel, we will return it to the sender’s address provided by you with the Parcel. If this address is incorrect or absent, we may have to dispose of your Parcel.

Our Delivery Estimates are as follows:

Standard delivery

i. If you drop your Parcel at a ParcelShop we will use our best endeavours to deliver your Parcel within 2 to 3 Working Days from the day of drop off, provided drop off is on a Working Day. If drop off is on a non-Working Day, we’ll use our best endeavours to deliver within 2 to 3 Working Days from the following Working Day.

ii. If we collect your Parcel from you (a “Courier collection”) then we will use our best endeavours to deliver your Parcel within 3 to 5 Working Days from such collection.

iii. If we deliver your Parcel more than 5 Working Days after the above Delivery Estimates, this will be classed as a “Late Delivery” and you may be entitled to compensation under Condition 4.2, unless it’s a Postable Product.

 Next Day delivery

i. For Parcels dropped-off at ParcelShops or Lockers (or other out-of-home location) only: we will use our best endeavours to deliver your Parcel within 1 Working Day, and in any event, within 2 Working Days if dropped off before 12 noon on a Working Day. If drop off is on a non-Working Day, we’ll use our best endeavours to deliver within 2 Working Days from the following Working Day.

ii. If we deliver your Parcel more than 3 Working Days after the above Delivery Estimates, this will be classed as a “Late Delivery” and you may be entitled to compensation under Condition 5.5, unless it’s a Postable Product.

The Services will be taken to be completed when we have Delivered your Parcel or when we have completed the Further Attempts (whichever is the later event). If for any reason, you have caused or contributed to a delay, you will not be entitled to any compensation. For example, if you failed to display the label with the barcode clearly showing, or if they were Inadequately Packaged, this is likely to cause a delay.

How to make a claim for compensation or make a complaint

If you would like to make a claim for compensation, please follow the steps set out in Condition 6 and leave the rest to us.

If you would like to make a complaint, we’re sorry to hear that. Please visit our Contact Us page for further details.

Business-related loss

Notwithstanding Condition 4.8 and subject to the limitations to our liability in Conditions 4 and 5, we do not accept any liability for any losses (including without limitation any loss of profit), costs, damages or other liability associated with any business or commercial enterprise or if you send Parcels with us in pursuit of any business or commercial trade (“Business Loss”).

Insofar as Business Loss is concerned, all warranties, conditions and other terms implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from our liability to you in the event that you suffer any losses, costs, damages or other liability associated with any business or commercial enterprise, or if you send Parcels with us in pursuit of any business or commercial trade.

3.3

If you breach any of these terms and conditions (including without limitation the Parcel dimension and/or weight requirements) then we may charge you reasonable administration fees up to £10 (“Administration Fee”). Imposing the Administration Fee does not limit or restrict any other rights or remedies that we may have against you.

the Goods or Parcels involved are Non-Compensation Items.

4.3.

The Compensation shall be the full extent of our liability to you for Loss or Damage or Late Delivery.

Subject to Condition 5.5, our liability for each instance of Loss or Damage or anything else other than Late Delivery is limited to whichever is lesser of:

(i)

£20; or

IT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK TO SEND ANY PARCEL THAT IS WORTH MORE THAN THE MAXIMUM LIMIT OF LIABILITY (SET OUT IN THIS CONDITION 5) AND TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT LEVEL OF COVER TO MATCH THE TOTAL VALUE OF YOUR ITEMS.
