McCarthy’s was first established in 1968 by Mick and Margaret McCarthy. We started life as a man and van operator, growing steadily in both transport and then removals and today we are Yorkshire’s largest privately owned removals and storage company still run by Managing Director Mike McCarthy.

Having operated in the Yorkshire region for over 50 years, we now have self storage units in Leeds, Harrogate, York, Huddersfield and Wakefield with more in the pipeline.

As of the 1st January 2021 the removals, shredding and archiving businesses transferred into an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) meaning all the employees own 100% of the business. Therefore, everybody you come into contact with at McCarthy’s has a strong personal interest in making your move an absolute success.

Our core values of outstanding quality of workmanship, exceptional customer service and great value for money are still at the heart of everything we do. The workforce consists of a large number of long-standing employees who embody the high standards set by the McCarthy family. The people who helped build the business into what it is today are now part of the EOT.

This ownership empowers every colleague to contribute towards the success and growth of the business by providing a shared purpose and collaborative way of working which in turn, delivers the highest level of customer service to each and every customer.

“Creating the EOT helps cement the legacy of the companies long term future and I know that I’ve helped to create something that will live well beyond me” Mike McCarthy

We are members of the British Association of Removers (B.A.R) and carry out our removals in keeping with the guidelines set by the Trading Standards Institute. We also have the British Standards Quality BSEN: 12522 (which is assessed annually) to show our customers just how important high quality service is to us. Finally, we have been recognised for our environmental management systems and standards with the award ISO 14001.

We aim to set and hold high standards throughout the organisation; so no matter which service you require you can be guaranteed customer service which exceeds expectations and delivers on quality and value every single time.

We adhere to the British Association of Removers Alternative Dispute Resolution Scheme which is independently operated by;

5 Stars

Great service from start to finish. From signing up to the refund of the deposit at the end. We will certainly recommend and use again if needed. The offer we got initially was great and when we cancelled as we no longer needed it, we were offered a little more time too. very good indeed.
