2-person handling for white goods

Hermes Einrichtungs Service offers individual shipping solutions for manufacturers or retailers starting from 1,000 shipments per year. Combine the service modules that meet your requirements and the preferences of your customers.

We deliver right to the power outlet.

When delivering major appliances, our 2-person teams not only take a particularly heavy burden off you and your customers but also provide them with a comprehensive service. The Hermes Einrichtungs Service ensures a first-class delivery experience for your customers – right to the place of use within their living spaces, including installation, disposal of packaging materials, and removal of old appliances.

When it comes to delivering washing machines, dishwashers, and refrigerators, customers at electrical retailers and electronics stores often need prompt service. Old appliances can suddenly break down and need to be replaced as soon as possible. And of course, most end customers are not familiar with properly connecting washing machines and dishwashers to ensure everything runs smoothly. They expect a reliable installation service they can rely on.

The Hermes Einrichtungs Service takes care of all these requirements – quickly and professionally. We have extensive experience with major appliances. We’ve been doing it for over 50 years – for OTTO as well as many nationally and regionally recognized electrical retailers and online stores.

Shipping large appliances such as washing machines, electric stoves, and refrigerators presents a number of challenges that require careful planning and specialized logistics. The dimensions and weight of these appliances make them susceptible to damage during shipping. In addition, different models require specific packaging requirements to protect sensitive parts from vibrations and impacts. On-site installation can also be complex, as it requires not only expertise but also suitable tools. Efficient logistics and a reliable partner like us are crucial to meet delivery deadlines and ensure that the appliances arrive in perfect condition at the end customer’s location.


Premium services for utmost customer satisfaction

Customize our modular services according to your requirements and the preferences of your customers. You will quickly realize that premium is our standard. The services of Hermes Einrichtungs Service not only make the delivery of major appliances effortless for you as a client but also create an outstanding customer experience with real added value for your customers. We deliver quickly, we deliver reliably, and we ensure that everything runs smoothly. In short, we deliver enthusiasm.
Within 5 working days from the Löhne or Ansbach HUB, your customers will receive their major appliances with 2-person handling from Hermes Einrichtungs Service, delivered to the place of use – whether it’s transporting the washing machine to the basement or to the 5th floor.
As standard, we notify your customers of the delivery date within one of three time windows. These time windows are Monday to Friday, from 7 am to 11 am, 10 am to 2 pm, or 1 pm to 6 pm. Notification is sent via phone, SMS, and email.
If the scheduled delivery date is not convenient for your customers, they can easily select a new preferred date through myHES.de or contact the respective delivery depot to reschedule the delivery.
Additionally, delivery is optionally available in the evening time window.
Our customer portal myHES provides your customers with access to all the information they need. Here, they can view the delivery status of their shipment and, if necessary, update their data or change the delivery date. If they have any questions, our chatbot “Hermine” and our customer service team at the respective delivery depot are ready to assist them.
On the day of delivery, your customers will be notified in real-time about the status of their shipment. Based on GPS tracking and tour planning software that ensures environmentally and cost-efficient routes for each tour, the Hermes Einrichtungs Service provides the recipient with a map view of the delivery area, showing the HES vehicle and detailed information about the tour progress and estimated delivery time (arrival forecast). Your customers will receive an individual link via email, which allows them to access the geographical tracking of their order online and receive real-time updates on the delivery status. The delivery time is narrowed down to a precise 10-minute window.
The 2-person delivery team will contact your customers by phone one hour before the delivery to announce the arrival time of the goods. This allows your customers to make any necessary preparations, such as leaving work on time to be at home to receive the delivery.
If your customers happen to forget the scheduled delivery or are unable to receive it, there’s no need to worry. We make up to 3 delivery attempts with prior notification – at no additional cost.
Environmental protection is a concern for all of us. That’s why we offer your customers a convenient and sustainable solution: Our delivery teams will remove all packaging materials and take them away. For major household appliances, this often includes large quantities of styrofoam, films, and transportation aids to ensure everything is well protected during transportation. These various packaging materials are disposed of properly and environmentally friendly at our locations or sent for recycling.
