It’s all happening in Harrogate

Written by on April 6, 2018

Harrogate Aerial View

There’s no denying that as a place to live, Harrogate has it all. Hence why it keeps make it on to those “best places to live” and “happiest places in the country” lists!

There’s the wonderful Stray – 200 acres of open parkland wrapped around the old town. Perfect for dog-walking, picnicking and playing a spot of sport. Plus letting the kids run off some steam! There’s the fantastic independent shops and boutiques the town is famous for – ideal for inspiration and finding something a little out of the ordinary. There’s the world renowned Betty’s Tea Room, open since 1919 – afternoon tea anyone? And of course, Harrogate is the home to some of the best tea in the world – Yorkshire!

There’s the Turkish Baths for relaxing and recharging. There’s the Royal Pump Room Museum to find out more about the (not so delicious) spa waters people used to drink. If you have green-fingers (and even if you don’t) the RHS Harlow Carr gardens are stunning, whatever the time of year.

So, it’s little wonder that Harrogate is such a popular place to live. It’s perhaps no surprise then that the average house value, according to Zoopla, is currently £351,000 – substantially more than the average for Leeds at £212,000, or even York at £288,000.

With property and land – and therefore space – being so valuable, it makes sense that we’ve seen business booming at our Harrogate self storage centre. It’s the reason we’ve recently undertaken a £1million expansion in the town, with 50% more storage space now available. We have rooms varying from just 16 sq ft to 500 sq ft. In a place where square footage is extremely valuable why not utilise self storage rather than wasting the equivalent space in your home!

We find we have quite a lot of small businesses using our storage facilities too. If you’re an entrepreneur working from home, rather than taking up your kitchen table, garage or spare room, a self storage unit can be ideal. You can get access whenever you need, and there’s even wifi and power available if needed.

We can also provide shredding services to businesses or individuals in Harrogate. Maybe you can no longer see your desk over all the paperwork, or maybe your filing system needs a good clear out. For businesses we can provide a regular or ad hoc shredding service so you can keep on top of confidential waste disposal in a way that suits you. With GDPR coming in in May 2018, it’s now more important than ever before – and it’s relevant for everything from a one man band to a multinational corporation.

Individuals can also benefit from our home shredding services – don’t waste time shredding one page at a time on your home shredder (which inevitably overheats within about 20 minutes). We can send you a sack to fill, which we then completely destroy with our industrial shredders. All waste is sent to be recycled so you can be sure you’re doing your bit for the environment too.

Whether you’re looking to move to, or within Harrogate, we can of course offer removals services too – including packing. With the property market moving so quickly, often people combine our removals service with self storage – perhaps selling their home and moving into rented accommodation, or with family or friends – so they’re in a better position to make a quick offer when a house they want comes on to the market.

Whatever your self storage, removal or shredding needs in Harrogate – why not give us a call and see what we can offer?


Extremely efficient and prompt service. Lee and Conner were very helpful and the job was completed without a hitch. I would recommend them and definitely use the service again. Thanks.
