Bag Moves between Accommodations
When walking the Wall and moving between accommodations, ideally your main baggage should be moved for you, rather than you carry it on your back - as apart from it being better for your back, it also means less weight on the trail itself. So all you want to be carrying with you is a small daypack containing those items that you require for the day. This being the case, unless you are being based in just the one accommodation, baggage transfer is an integral part of your accommodation booking.
Bag Weight Limit
You should be aware that baggage is normally restricted to one bag per person and that there is a bag weight restriction of 15kgs per bag. This is to conform with Health & Safety Regulations and Insurance liabilities, which restrict the amount that can be lifted by one person above waist height - bearing in mind that there will be one person transporting your (and lots of other folks') baggage along the way.
It is possible to bring more baggage with you if you are unable to pack all of your gear within the one bag and keep within the weight limit. Extra bags need to be booked in addition to the normal baggage transfer included with a booking. An extra bag will cost £6 per move - so if your baggage is moved six times, there will be a total additional charge of £30.
Like those walking the trail, baggage travels in the one direction. If you intend returning to your start point (or somewhere close to it) at the end of your walk, eg to pick up a vehicle, or catch a train, you will have to take all your baggage with you from your last night's accommodation. If you would like your baggage moved back across the country, it has to be booked separately and the charge is dependant on the distance between the pick-up and drop-off points.
