Re: Hermes false claim for underweight parcel - not a scam

I went direct through Hermes, cpg, as the parcel drop off is only a couple of miles away. It's the first time I've had any aggro with hermes but the inability to contact anyone via their website really got up my nose which is why I sent an email directly to the CEO. It worked :D Ive been using RM si...

Re: Assorted cycling books - mostly older ones - scroll down for full list

A final bump before I cull the list and add some more. I'm surprisedthat the Ragged Staff books are still here. Open to sensible offers.

Re: Hermes false claim for underweight parcel - not a scam

Having searched the hermes site I blasted off the same very pointed email to every one I could find, including one to the CEO, Martin De Lange. That's the one that got through :wink: . Ive had a full apology for their system error and they have cancelled the invoice. In addition theyve offered a £20...

Re: Assorted cycling books - mostly older ones

Pending the outcome of this farce - https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=134720 I shall not be using Hermes for the time being. Royal Mail will be the first choice. Whilst it may be a little more expensive, they don't tend to try and scam you with wild claims after delivery. :evil: S...

Re: Hermes false claim for underweight parcel - not a scam

I cetainly will. It wouldnt surprise me if they pull this stunt on a regular basis and for the sake of a fiver I'd guess many folk would just pay it rather than waste their time trying to get through to them :roll:

Hermes false claim for underweight parcel - not a scam

Has anyone else recently had an invoice from Hermes (via their Paypal account) claiming for parcels that were sent underpaid? I recently sent a book to someone in Ipswich. The book was on the borderline of 1kg so I paid the 1-2kg rate to be on the safe side. The book was delivered before Christmas. ...

Re: Assorted cycling books - mostly older ones

Gentle humour from a much less brash and aggressive period when bikes were actually welcome on trains and cars were less of an infestation, brynpoeth :D

Anyway, The Sunbeam Book is now on its way to Wayne and Mr Punch Awheel is en route to Dave. Thanks very much.

Re: Assorted cycling books - mostly older ones

It has articles from 2004 through to 2007, pedalsheep. According to the introduction the publishers have no archive going back before 2004. I think the intention was to eventually produce a second volume for stuff after 2007 but whether that ever happens is another matter.
