Your storage world Leeds experience

On the whole, good but my account preceded the current computer system in place and this has been a pain. Could have been better.

Your removal experience

The staff are always helpful when you meet them face to face or by telephone. They are knowledgeable and give you confidence in the service you are booking. The teams that come to the house are friendly, patient, effective and very efficient. They were very kind too which really helped me because the two moves McCarthy's have done for me was to move my mum (82 years old) from her home for over 45years to a temp. resident in the block of flats that you have now moved her to her permanent home another ground floor in the same block so 3 moves over 6 months was made much less traumatic by the excellent service that the whole McCarthy's team provided. Congratulations and thank you. Janet Holman
