Extremely great service

5 Stars

Overall safe and effective storage although my unit occasionally leaked when it rained.The continual fee increases during Covid were unacceptable and my complaints received no reply. Compulsory insurance issued by McCarthys is another rip off factor.

2 Stars

Brilliant overall experience will definitely recommend and use again
