There are so many options to choose from when you want to send a package. 

Evri (formerly Hermes) is the go-to courier service for many UK-based brands. However, as with any courier service, it can be tricky for merchants new to ecommerce or unfamiliar with Evri to find the most cost-effective parcel options for their business. 

In this article, we’ll dive deep into Evri’s parcel prices, sizes, weight limits, and more, so your brand can ship with confidence.  

EVRi vs myHermes: What changed?

In 2022, the delivery company Hermes rebranded their platform to become Evri following some negative attention the company received the previous year. 

Along with a new and dynamic logo, the brand upgraded their customer service with a completely UK-based customer care team, more phone lines, and a better chatbot.

EVRi parcel prices

With so many courier services to choose from, it makes sense that businesses shipping to and from the UK would compare pricing to make sure they get the best deal. 

Evri offers competitive pricing on its parcel services, as well as bulk shipping discounts. Both Standard and Next Day delivery include real-time next day tracking, weekend delivery, three delivery attempts, delivery photo confirmation, and a £20 parcel cover. 

Standard delivery 

With Standard Delivery, you may send parcels anywhere in the UK at very little cost. Rates start at just £2.70 for postable shipments under 1kg, and increase depending on the parcel’s weight, destination, and your desired collection method. 

Merchants may opt for a courier to collect their parcel, or they may drop it off at a ParcelShop or Locker. Evri may also charge an extra £2.75 for deliveries to and from certain postcodes.

Here is a snapshot of the prices, based on the parcel weight, for standard delivery:

Evri parcel size limits 

The maximum limit of EvRi parcel size for postable parcels is a letterbox-friendly 35 cm x 23 cm x 3 cm (L x W x D).

As per the website, your parcel size is okay to ship if its volume is:

((Shortest side + Second shortest side) x 2) + Length of the parcel < 245 cm

For those who use ParcelShop or EvRi’s courier service, the maximum length allowed is 120 cm. For locker-bound shipments, the maximum size allowed is 66 cm x 41 cm x 38 cm.

Evri parcel weight limits 

With postable parcel and large letter delivery, the shipment weight must be between 250g and 1kg. For other parcels, the maximum weight of 15kg. Find out more about the carrier’s weight limits, by clicking here.

Evri large parcel prices 

Whether it’s a chair, sewing machine, or box of faucets, if it’s under 15kgs, Evri can deliver it locally.

The carrier’s charges vary based on the weight of the goods, so its size doesn’t really matter, as long as it’s under 120cm (in length) and its length plus girth is no more than 245 cm. 

If the item you’re shipping is not easily measurable with a tape measure, or weighable using a digital scale on hand with which to weigh it, try comparing the item to other things of a similar size and weight that you have on hand.

Once you pack, measure, and weigh your heavy parcel, you can book the parcel delivery online or through Evri’s app. 

From there, you can print your postage label (either on your own or through a ParcelShop), and either have it collected from your business premises or home or drop it off at a ParcelShop or Locker drop off.

Evri also has an international shipping calculator that you may use to get quotes for custom parcel delivery.
