Self storage is ideal for smallread more
We were absolutely delighted to get a mention in an entirely unexpected story in the Yorkshire Evening Post newspaper this week. A few weeks ago we were approached by a fantastic charity called Homeless Hampers. A non-profit making organisation which has been running for four years, they rely solely on donations and self-funding to doread more
Here at McCarthy’s we’ve noticed a definite trend in our self storage centres over recent years. Obviously all of us have seen a huge shift in our lives because of the internet.

It’s that time of year again when university exams are all done, and students across the country can breath a big sigh of relief! Now on to planning the fun stuff – summer vacation! That means June is also a busy time of year for our self storage centres, as students make the wise choiceread more

It’s a conversation that goes on in homes across the country – “should we move or improve?” (ok, maybe not in those exact words, but with the same sentiment!) There’s even TV shows dedicated to the subject (we’re a big fan of Phil and Kirstie’s Love it or List it). A home which was perfectread more
People use our self storage for a wide variety of reasons – business and personal. For some people it can be a long term plan to create more space for themselves – for others it can be a short term arrangement to meet a particular need. Unless you’ve used self storage before, it can seemread more
We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! However, if you’re anything like us – your waistband is not the only thing now bursting at the seams. Christmas is a wonderful time of giving and receiving.

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.
