Your Self Storage Experience

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.

Your Removals and Storage Experience

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.
