You don’t say which Camino you will be walking, but on the Francés transport between hotels/casas won’t be a problem using for instance Correos or JacoTrans.

Buen Camino!
We used Correos and stayed in hotels. No problem at all. We booked on the website. There is a drop down list of all hotels and albergues in each town to choose from.

Yes, no problem for CRs, hotels, paradors or private albergues. Sometimes an issue with municipal albergues since the backpack transport service may arrive at the destination to deliver the backpack before the municipal albergue opens, so the backpack is dropped off at a nearby restaurant or bar.
I have used Caminofacil for years. On their website, you can post your itinerary along with lodgings and pay up front if you like.
I often book hotels and casa rurals.
I've never had a problem with their service!
Highly recommended.
I used backpack transport on the CF in 2022 from albergues to CR’s to hotels - no problem. EXCEPT - San Bol just outside Hornillos. Jacotran dropped them off at San Bol but would not pick them up the next morning! Several people almost stranded. The great Cuban hospitalario transported our packs to Castrojeriz. We surmised that the problem was the out of the way arroyo mixed with the service being overextended.
