Feature Locations: Cookridge Removals

Written by on March 17, 2017

Cookridge Hall

Our latest Feature Location focuses on the Leeds North West suburb of Cookridge which is a largely residential area around four miles from Leeds city centre. The Cookridge ward also includes a district known as Tinshill where some of the local amenities and establishments have a crossover of names with Cookridge.

Moving to Cookridge

As mentioned previously, Cookridge and Tinshill are largely residential areas with mixed types of housing. This residential area has led to a good level of local and independent amenities around the area as well as nearby Horsforth and Holt Park.

Nearby school Ralph Thorseby takes its name from the 17th century Leeds born merchant and author who is widely seen as being the first historian of the city of Leeds. Thorseby described Cookridge as a village four miles from Leeds and three from Otley that was one part of the possessions of Kirkstall Abbey. He noted traces of a roman road and interesting paths in Moseley Wood.

Great service from start to finish. From signing up to the refund of the deposit at the end. We will certainly recommend and use again if needed. The offer we got initially was great and when we cancelled as we no longer needed it, we were offered a little more time too. very good indeed.

5 Stars

Great service from the storage department. Helped me find the right unit and it was a smooth transaction. Would recommend them highly

Would have liked more information in print regarding the actual pricing structure particularly all the 'added' extras - insurance, cleaning, deposit, padlock - rather than just the price quoted on-line! Also details regarding access times - as there seems to be an additional charge for longer / 24-hour access, only standard office opening hours covered by the charge.

Staff very pleasant and helpful!
