Friendly helpful staff that made it easy for us to store our goods at their Harrogate premises. The facilities were very clean and secure and we had easy access at all times.
The whole process is well run. Collection, storage and forwarding to another address, all went very well indeed. The lady at the helm, and her assistants are so friendly and helpful. The guys on the trucks are very competent and friendly people too. It is a well run operation, from start to finish.
I would certainly recommend this company to others and also would use them again should we move again. Spot on! That is the best way to describe them.
Thank you McCarthy's.
This is the second time we have used McCarthy's for storage and I can't recommend them more highly. From the initial phone call, the booking, delivering and collecting, everything is made easy and efficient by the extremely helpful and polite staff
