Brexit uncertainty for businesses – helping you stay flexible

Written by on November 9, 2019

I think it’s fair to say that whether you’re pro or anti Brexit, it’s all become a little confusing. From “We will definitely be leaving on 31st October” to another three month delay and a general election, it’s hard to have any concrete idea of how things will play out.

There have been multiple stories in the media about how Brexit is damaging the confidence of UK businesses, with many putting spend and recruitment on hold. And whilst some may already have felt an impact on their bottom line, others think it is prudent to play it safe in the face of the unknown.

At McCarthy’s we appreciate that, for some businesses, now may not be the best time to splash out on big new premises or warehouses – but yet, in the meantime, the company might actually be doing quite well and continuing to grow.

We pride ourselves on working flexibility for businesses who need a bit of extra space. Our self storage centres in Leeds, Wakefield and Harrogate have a large proportion of business users of all types and sizes, who find the flexible extra space works well for their requirements.

We can offer a size of unit tailored to suit you – and if you find plans change over the following months, and you need a larger or smaller unit, we will always try and accommodate you if possible. We can provide internet and phone connections, power, lighting and heating if needed – making it a comfortable and useful place to work for a ‘pick and pack’ operation or stock taking.

It’s a much more cost effective way of gaining access to extra space, compared to buying or leasing expensive commercial property. There’s no need to be tied in to long term contracts or to worry what will happen if your circumstances change, and one price covers everything. We can accept deliveries for you, even if you’re not around. Flexibility is our middle name (well not really, that would be a bit weird).

You can rest assured your items are kept safe, with CCTV, on site staff, remote monitoring, pin code entry and a unit to which only you hold the key. There’s plenty of parking, along with lifts, forklifts, pallet trucks and trolleys which are available to help you get your goods into your unit as easily as possible. Being a removal company as well, we have all kinds of useful equipment if you need something in particular – as well as being able to provide vans and drivers for larger scale items you need a hand transporting! We also have drive up units at our Leeds and Harrogate self storage centres.

If you could do with a more formal office space alongside your self storage, we do also have our business centre in Leeds. With a range of serviced offices, you can benefit from meeting rooms, kitchen, break out areas, a receptionist and much more – as well as your own private, fully furnished office with high speed internet and phone lines. All sorted for you and ready to go the day you move in and at one set price so you know exactly what you’re paying.

So, if Brexit, or anything else, has you wanting a bit more flexibility for your business – why not come pay us a visit to have a look for yourself? We love giving the guided tour!


McCartheys were there to take much of the stress out of what was a very difficult time for myself and my family.All the staff were patient and understanding of our dilemma and did all they could to help.
The storage facilities were safe and very secure with easy access .
All in all a painless experience.
Would highly recommend.

Really friendly and helpful customer service and explained everything clearly. Easy to reserve and new facility in York seems well secured and easy to access, with handy equipment to use (particularly with extended hours - at additional cost). Only minor comment for improvement during these times would be to have sanitise stations near the keypads as these are touch points for everyone using the facility.

Really good service and nice units. Easy access, great location, nothing to fault
