Getting a move on this Spring

Written by on April 28, 2017

Removals Man & Bedford

May 1st marks New Home Owners’ Day: a day to celebrate those brave people tackling a house move  – whether it’s into their first pad, a move up the property chain, or downsizing now the family have flown the nest.

A new home is definitely something to celebrate – and moving day is a combination of the most exciting, nerve-wracking and stressful days of your life, all combined into one!

At McCarthy’s we can’t help you find that new home, take away the nerves about whether the money will land where it’s supposed to when it’s supposed to, or help clean the new place from top to bottom – but we can help take a lot of the stress out of getting you and your precious belongings there.

Spring and Summer are our busiest times when it comes to the removals side of the business. So if you think you might have a move on the horizon, it’s never too early to get in touch with us. We’ll send someone round to chat to you and take a look at how much you have in your current home so we can give you a detailed quote and answer any questions you have about getting it moved to your new pad.

We can even help pack up all your belongings if you want us to. It can be hard working through everything you own and packaging it up. There’s reminiscing over old photos, wondering about the best way to parcel up the family heirlooms and running out of boxes and bubble wrap half way through. How soon should you pack up, and does that mean you’re living out of a box and eating nothing but Pot Noodles for a week?

If you let the professionals pack for you, you’ll be amazed how quickly and efficiently it is achieved. Our teams have years of experience and they know exactly how to best package up everything you own, from fine bone china to your vintage collection of vinyl. They have the equipment needed to make it easier too, such as hanging boxes so emptying wardrobes becomes a doddle.

But if you’d rather pack up yourself (it’s a good excuse for a clear out after all), then make sure you’re as prepared as possible with boxes, tape, packaging and everything you need to LABEL (sorry, did we shout that? It’s just labelling is very important – it helps make your job and our job a million times easier if everyone knows where things need to go in the new house). Our online box shop and our physical shops in Leeds, Wakefield and Harrogate, have everything you need and can offer advice on how many boxes you’re likely to need to move from your size of property.

Once you’re packed, all that’s left is to get it safely from A to B – and don’t worry, that’s where our almost 50 years of expertise comes in! Whether you’re moving within Yorkshire, to London or to Australia, we can help get your belongings there as quickly and safely as possible.

And don’t worry if it seems like your moving out date and moving in date won’t tie up – we deal with lots of moves where there’s a little (or large) gap in between. We can still help you get all your belongings where they need to be. We’ll load everything into containers in the removal van, which will be sealed as we depart, and then transfer them to one of our secure Yorkshire storage units, where they’ll be kept safely for as long as you need us to. Then when you’re ready, we’ll take the containers to your new home, ready to be unsealed and unpacked.

Whichever removal firm you end up choosing, always make sure they’re a member of BAR (British Association of Removers) – it’s your reassurance of standard.

So, if you think you might have a New Home Owners Day of your own coming up soon – why not give us a call on 0113 262 3000? Don’t worry about asking lots of questions – we understand this is a big thing! But hopefully we can make it a big thing with very little stress.


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.

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!
