Your self storage Wakefield experience

The staff were very helpful and professional at all stages. The storage areas always clean and tidy. Would definitely use the facility again and would recommend to friends and colleagues for short term or longer. Many thanks.
Good service and good value.

Your removal experience

Firstly the communication was brilliant throughout and I even got a phone call the night before asking me if I'd like them to come earlier as there was a cancelled job and they had some people spare. The three guys who came were super friendly and helpful (making a stressful time a hell of a lot more managable). The packing was fantastic (one of the reasons I chose McCarthy's was that earlier this year they moved JUMBO RECORDS, which I'm assistant manager of, and did such a great job I knew I could trust them to move my record collection). When I initially rang them I did warn them about the sheer amount of records I had so they were able to offer a quote and I opted for the full packing service too. (You might think you can do it yourself, or could get things cheaper but why make things more stressful and harder? Why take the risk on such an important thing?). Even though this was a heavy workload they still managed it perfectly in the amount of time, and yet again I can't stress how happy I was with their service. (It was a superhuman effort). If you're a first time mover who doesn't know the ropes or are worried about the how's and if's then one of the great things about McCarthy's is that they really explain all the in's and out's and make moving as easy as can possibly be..If you have a large record collection and are worried about how to move it then total it up and get them to give you a quote and if you want them to pack then they do it really well and carefuly. Like I said before, the three guys that did the move went above and beyond, made me feel so comfortable and at ease with such a crazy time and I could honestly say that I couldn't imagine the move going any smoother. Can't recommend them enough and the only thing I'd say to McCarthy's is that when it comes to Christmas bonus's this year then I think the three guys that moved me should get a whopper of a bonus (and a medal)..So don't hesitate and get that a quote for that record collection...You won't regret it!!!
