Hermes will give a parcel to anyone who just happens to be walking past the delivery address...
LOL the courier debate has been going on for years.

Everyone has a tale to tell about a courier.

Hermes have hundreds of drivers all working hard to earn a modest crust, some have crap rounds and earn virtually nothing.

There are no good and no bad couriers they all try their best and because of the sheer volume of packages we send and receive as a nation things go wrong.

Highlighting a courier as being rubbish really achieves nothing whatsoever as the next one will be much the same because of the above.
Opinions are like arseholes, every one's got one!

It also highlights the drawback of direct/mail order selling; both vendor and customer are at the mercy of the couriers. Having said that, I've never had any problems with the ones I've used (mostly UPS and DPD).

I only use UPS, don't trust any of the others. Also for insurance, I have been refused payouts by everyone including Parcelforce and Royal mail who are the worst, making up any excuse and lies leaving no alternative if you have the time but to County Court them. The ONLY company that pays out with minimum hassle is Interparcel (they run their own insurance).

It costs me more but it is worth it.
