A few years ago it was all the rage to talk about paperless offices. Everyone tried to have one…but then everyone realised it was a bit trickier than they thought and much as the aim was still there in the background, everyone stopped talking about it quite as much! Despite electronics becoming more sophisticated, weread more

October 4th 2018 marks Improve Your Office Day – and whilst some might say these ‘days’ are getting a bit over the top, we actually get on board with the concept behind this one. Ok, dedicating a day to it might be a bit much, but if it does encourage you to take action toread more
The GDPR deadline of 25th May has been and gone – and much like when Y2K ‘hit’, the world did not collapse. Thankfully. But the day was just the start, and not the end of the process. Everyone was a bit fed up at the flurry of emails we received towards the deadline from companiesread more
Some things are just meant to be together.

No, we haven’t started a faddy new diet. But we’re delighted to say that we’ve shed (or shred) a massive 2,000 tonnes of waste paper! Did you know that McCarthy’s Safe Shred has now recycled enough confidential waste paper to make 10.8m toilet rolls? No, neither did we until the turn of the year! Weread 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.
