Yamato Takkyubin Luggage forwarding service

We are arriving at Narita, spending 2 days in Tokyo then going by train (& bus) up to Nagano Shiga Kogen to ski. Does anyone know if it is a reliable service to send our ski luggage (just suit-cases, no skis) directly from Narita to the hotel at Shiga Kogen so that we dont have to bother with it on the train? We have read about Yamato's Takkyubin service which sounds good, but obviously would be a disaster if anything went wrong & we arrived to ski with bags missing!

Grateful for any advice on experience with this service, whether it is reliable & worthwhile to avoid the hassle of taking cases on trains & buses.

I have used the luggage forwarding service more than 100 times and items have always arrived on time. My only regret is that it doesn't exist in other countries.
