Your Self Storage Experience

My experience with mccarthys Wakefield so far has been excellent, staff are friendly, professional and helpful! The premises are always clean and tidy. We have 4 units here as we are an expanding business, we have the peace of mind that all our stock is securely stored as there is great gated security & 24/7 CC TV.

Highly recommend this new self store facility!

Your self storage experience

Sorry but this was an awful experience
I booked online and paid a deposit but when i arrived there were no units of that size available
I had to persuade your colleague to reluntantly give me another unit, one slightly bigger that was available, but at the original price, as this was your error.
I subsequently vacated the unit 8 weeks later after giving due notice.
I then had to chase for the refund of my deposit.
I then had to contact again as a direct debit charge had been taken even though I was no longer using the unit.
I was then advised my refund would be £105.96.....when my deposit was £50.00 and the direct debit taken was £56.00, I queried the difference.
Eventually I got my money back 14 days after vacating the unit.

Shame becuase the facility is good and in a good location but my experience from a service viewpoint leaves a lot to be desired.
