The Bank Holiday is not far away, plus a lot of us have spent more time at home during lockdown. Being at home more can mean you see the property through new eyes. From spotting where could do with a freshen up of paintwork to realising that your house is starting to feel cramped, itread more
Last week we focused on one of our home towns – Wakefield – so we thought it only fair that the others got a turn! So, this week we’re going to be taking a look at the very special town which is Harrogate. Harrogate became the second place we launched McCarthy’s Storage World back inread more
Some news caught our eye the other day saying that Wakefield is now one of the fastest growing cities in the North. There was an eight per cent growth in new homes built there between 2011 and 2019, which actually put it on a level pegging with our capital city London. Of course, we areread more
18th March marks Global Recycling Day 2020 – definitely a day we should all be getting behind. How we should be looking after our environment is a topic which is increasing in awareness all the time, helped by eco-warriors such as Greta Thunberg and the wise words of individuals like our national treasure David Attenborough.read more
It may not quite feel like it yet, but we’re quickly moving towards Spring. At the end of the month the clocks will go forward (which means we lose an hour’s sleep, sorry…). But the bonus of that is lighter evenings and a feeling that Summer is well and truly on its way. If weread more
There was lots of talk last year about how the property market had been subdued by fears around Brexit and the election and what that might mean for us all. People were feeling nervous to take the plunge on a house move, waiting to see what might happen. Of course, despite December’s election and Brexitread more
February 20th Marks ‘Love Your Pet Day’. And ‘love our pets’ we certainly do! Research last year revealed that one in seven Brits admitted they loved their pet more than they loved their partner! Whether they are furry, feathered or scaled, have eight, four or two legs (or zero!) our pets are a member ofread more
You’ve found a buyer for your home, you’ve had an offer accepted on the property you want to buy – so now it’s just down to the legalities and hopefully you can be moved in within three months, all being well. But for many people things might not be that simple. Research from independent homeread more
We announced last year that we would be opening a brand new purpose built self storage centre in York, which is due to open in April. We’re very excited as it’s our first purpose built storage centre, so we have been able to design it exactly to our own specifications! It will contain 50,000 sqread more
At this time of year many of us might be spending more time than usual in our homes. The weather is cold and rainy (and perhaps snowy if the forecast ever comes true!), the nights are dark – it’s not surprising a form of hibernating can seem like a great idea! Being at home moreread more
I’ve been using McCarthy’s for a long time now, and am more than happy with my storage unit. The units are very accessible and always clean and tidy. The helpful staff are always on hand if you need any assistance. Wendi in particular has been a pleasure to deal with and extremely efficient.
Their service was above and beyond as Wendi and her husband drove to the York site on Sunday afternoon to accommodated my son with his storage room as we were traveling from Glasgow to South Wales via York to drop off his belongings for university.
We had the packing and moving service, they were very professional, polite and did a great job. They didn't just put everything in the boxes they held back things like filler or legal documents in case we might need them. There was also a delay in getting into the new house and they were very patient and didn't complain. Made things a huge amount less stressful for us. I would highly recommend.
