There’s a wealth of data out there on house prices and the property market – so much so it can get quite confusing! Here at McCarthy’s we have a direct line to what’s going on in the world of property within Yorkshire. If our removals team are rushed off their feet, we know the buyingread more
When the pandemic struck, everything stopped. For almost two months the property market stood still, a situation unlike anything we’d seen before. But then in May things were allowed to reopen and now the property market is thriving – and therefore so is the removals side of our business. Understandably, some people are worried aboutread more
It seems like most of the country has used 2020 to have a good old sort out of their belongings. On furlough, working from home, unable to socialise or undertake any of our usual activities – what else was there to do but make banana bread and have a clear out? With the occasional Joeread 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
Our experience on this and previously both in Leeds and Harrogate, is of being served by a company that appears to love it’s customers and employees equally. We can’t speak highly enough of the extremely personable and highly professional approach adopted by the team in Harrogate!
