Does Hermes Deliver On Saturdays & Sundays?

Yes, Hermes standard delivery service and next-day delivery services both operate on Saturdays & Sundays.

What Time will the Hermes Courier Pick up your Parcel?

Before we dive deep into Hermes Saturday and Sunday deliveries, you should know when the company’s courier will get around to collecting the parcel you want to send.

  • From Mondays to Fridays, you can expect that the courier will pick up your parcel between 8 am to 8 pm.
  • On Saturdays, you can expect a courier to collect your parcel between 8 am to 6 pm.
  • On Sundays, Hermes doesn’t collect parcels. The same applies to bank holidays.

Don’t forget that instead of arranging courier collection, you can just drop off your parcel at one of Hermes ParcelShops whenever time suits you. Hermes has more than 4,500 ParcelShops all over the UK, and a lot of them are open early until late, 7 days a week. Click here to find the nearest ParcelShop to your location.

Saturday Deliveries

Now let’s talk in-depth about Saturday deliveries with Hermes. First of all, a lot of people have a misconception that this company doesn’t deliver on the weekend — Saturdays included.

However, we’re happy to report that when Hermes says they offer 7-day week deliveries, they really stand by it. Through Hermes, you can send, receive, and/or return your parcels on Saturdays without issues.

Saturday deliveries are available using Hermes couriers, ParcelShops, and Lockers:

  • Couriers — Hermes supports an extensive network of couriers who work all days of the week. So don’t worry if you need weekend delivery, it’ll make it in time to your doorstep.
  • ParcelShops — if you don’t feel like waiting at home to receive your visit the nearest ParcelShop to your location. Most Hermes ParcelShops are open 7 days a week, allowing you to send, collect, and return parcels whenever available.
  • Lockers — similarly, you can access Hermes Lockers 24 hours a day, every day of the week. This allows you to drop off or pick up your parcel whenever it suits you.

Delivery Hours

As we mentioned earlier, on Saturdays, you can expect a courier to collect your parcel between 8 am to 6 pm. Delivery hours on Saturdays are even better; you can expect a courier to deliver your parcel between 8 am to 8 pm.

Types of Delivery

Just like every other day of the week, Saturday deliveries offer speedy parcel postage options to suit your schedule. These consist of two types of delivery:

  • Standard parcel delivery — with regular delivery, you’ll receive your parcel within a time frame of 2 to 4 days from collection, including Saturday. This is Hermes equivalent to sending a parcel second-class with Royal Mail, and it can be done via courier, ParcelShop, or Locker.
  • Next-Day parcel delivery — if you deposit your parcel at a Next Day drop-off ParcelShop before 12 pm, Hermes will deliver it the following day, including Saturday. If you drop it off later, then the delivery might take a couple of days.

You can book and pay for a Next Day delivery online by following this send link. You can even print your label either at home or using a Print In-Store device.

Services

Regardless of what type of delivery you end up choosing, you get a premium service that includes all of the following for free:

  • Parcel cover — you get a free cover worth up to £20. This excludes Postable parcels that weigh less than 1kg and are letterbox-friendly.
  • Tracking — you can track your parcel in real-time online or with our app. Tracking also includes a photo of your parcel to confirm that it’s been delivered to your safe place, as well as the delivery signature (if the sender required it).
  • Divert a parcel — if the primary delivery address isn’t going to be available, the recipient can choose to divert their parcel to a neighbor or safe place.
  • 3 delivery attempts.
