General Conditions
The item is defined as a single piece of luggage not exceeding 18kg. If the weight is exceeded Walking Support is entitled to charge a supplement at a rate of 20 per kg over the maximum.
Items that are in excess of 22 kgs may be refused transfer and the walker simply notified as to the reason for non-transfer.
The luggage needs to be available for collection in the morning by 9.15 am and we will have it delivered to the next address by 5.30 pm at latest, but we would hope that this could be in many cases much earlier.
The service operates between Easter and the end of September. Services outside this period will be considered dependent on demand.
The responsibility for insurance of the luggage in transit rests with the individual and not with the carrier. We therefore recommend that you do not include items of value or items that are easily damaged. Walking Support can advise you regarding low cost comprehensive holiday insurance that includes luggage protection.
Prices are as those shown on our website at the time of placing the order.
In the case of large groups special rates can be quoted.
A deposit of 25% of the cost is required at the time of booking. This is non refundable. The balancing sum must be paid in advance of the start date or, with agreement with Walking Support, be available for collection with the bag/s at the first pick-up point.
To assist individuals making payment for any of our services we are able to accept cash, cheque, BACs payments (payable to SCSupport Ltd) or on-line card payment.
