Luggage transport services - Mochila vs Xaco -

I am currently on the Camino - was in Madrid for a week before starting - have a suitcase full of cloths I used for that week. Sending the suitcase ahead is stressful since I don't speak Spanish or have a phone that works here in Spain. I do have a list of booked accomadations. OK so have been using Mochila who have my schedule - hostel owner now gives me the Xaco Transport tags - since she does not speak English I'm not sure if Xaco works the same way - do I need to have someone call the company daily. Do I give Xaco a list of my accomadations & hope they will come by in the morning? Do I put the daily amount (3 euros) in the envelope or put the entire amount for my remaining pick-up days in the envelope? Help- your collective wisdom is needed!!!

Hola!
Why do you send your suitcase ahead each day if you don't need it? Simply send it to Santiago where it will wait for you:

Ultreia!

PS (According to your nickname/surname(?) you might have Slovenian ancestors. True?)

Hola
Thank you for the speedy reply - do you know if the transport service will take it to your place? Also can I just put the Xaco tag on it with your info or do I need to get a box from the post office & package it up? Also how much does the transport service charge since it is going a lot further - any idea?

My married name is Slovenian my heritage is Italian.

Thank you,
Niefia

Well, it would be of no use sending it to my address because I live in Slovenia ;)
I'm sure @ivar will have answers to your question because the easiest is to send your suitcase to his storage in Santiago.

Have a nice Camino!
