Luggage storage in Santiago--HELP URGENT

I am having trouble with luggage storage in Santiago. I am arriving this Thursday evening, June 24 @ 20:00 (8PM) and I need to drop off a carry on suitcase and safely secure it for the next 35 days.
Yes, I know I could forward the luggage from the start point at SJPP, but because of some of the fragile contents I am electing not to do it this way and instead hand delivering it myself.

I have contacted Ivar from this forum as he used to provide luggage storage. He has handed over this operation to Micheal from Wise Pilgrim. I have contacted Michael 3 times and I while I quickly got a reply with a price for the storage-- I have not received any reply back for weeks after requesting hours available to drop off and an address/phone number for contact. These details are necessary, obviously.

Time is closing fast. I need a new option. One that will accept my back after 8pm/20:00 hrs this Thursday, 24 June.
HELP!

Thanks-

Darcy, get back to Ivar. Maybe Wisepilgrim is busy... it will work out.

Unfortunately, your arrival time may be the issue.

When I was in Pamplona I posted my extra luggage to the same post office (effectively leaving it at that post office) for later pick up but post offices are only open during normal business hours and that is not as late as 8pm, so it is not much help.

Darcy,

I have just sent you an email. My apologies for not having seen your email earlier, it landed in my inbox but somehow escaped my notice.

In case anyone else is having this problem, don’t hesitate to send another message.
Excellent! Thank you so much for the quick reply.
Whew! One less thing to worry about at the 11th hour:)
Please send me your phone number privately so we can securely connect.

A workaround might be, contact some private albergue, I am sure they will find some arrangement for you (Aquarius springs to mind, they have been open for over 15 years now)

In 2019 I sent luggage with Bourricot in SJPDP. They nominated Hostal La Salle in Santiago for pickup. I had no problems with this and found the staff at Hostal la Salle lovely, helpful people.
