Creating affordable, flexible workspaces for York’s small businesses

Written by on February 6, 2020

We announced last year that we would be opening a brand new purpose built self storage centre in York, which is due to open in April.  We’re very excited as it’s our first purpose built storage centre, so we have been able to design it exactly to our own specifications!

It will contain 50,000 sq ft of storage space – and one of the highlights will be the flexible workspaces it can provide for local businesses. You may have seen us in the news this week (and here!)

Building work began on McCarthy’s Storage World in Clifton Without (Water Lane) in Summer last year, on the site of a former grain store which was demolished in 2009.  

We will offer a range of small business workspaces for local entrepreneurs. Companies which would benefit from any combination of office, trade counter and storage space may be able to secure up to 5,000 sq ft premises. We know it can be difficult for small businesses in the area to find appropriate, flexible and affordable workspace, so we wanted to ensure there was space which really worked for them. So, if you need a trade counter, somewhere to store excess stock or a small office combined with storage, we’re happy to try and work with you to see if we can create the space you need.

Across all of our self storage centres in Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield we have a high proportion of ‘pick and pack’ enterprises which make the most of the secure space we offer to run their businesses. Units can come with power, WiFi and heating which is all included within one straightforward bill along with rates and security and ample free parking. It makes it super easy for you, and much more affordable.

But of course, in addition to businesses, the storage centre will also be suitable for use by individuals and homeowners, with storage units starting from just 16 sq ft in size. So, it’s ideal for those moving home, extending, renovating, downsizing, house clearing, travelling or who just need some extra space! We’ll also be on hand for students who may need somewhere to store their belongings in university holidays.

Any businesses interested in finding out more about the business space available should email or call 01904 238333 – we’d love to chat you through what we can offer. We’ll also be looking for job seekers to fill full and part time staff vacancies once the storage centre opens, so let us know if you think you’ve got the right skills and would like to join our friendly team. The countdown to April is on!


Your removals experience

Initially used for storage following relocation and team in Harrogate couldn’t have been more helpful and efficient. Storage facilities spotless and good security.
Then used for removal and again guys were on time, friendly, and got the job done quickly with no problems.
Only issue was having to contact 4 times to get someone to give me a quote for the removal. Received no call backs until I got very frustrated on my fourth call - not everyone would give that many chances.

Your removals experience

A very friendly and efficient service. We were desperately in need of a storage unit and a 'man and van' to help us clear the house of a relative who had recently died. We could not have asked for better support. The unit was booked, and the storage staff directed us to the removals reception who promptly found an available van. The removal men and van were also great. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
