It’s good to talk…

It’s summer time which means one thing – house moves!

(Ok, you were probably thinking sunshine or sport or holidays, but we work in the removals business and so our focus is elsewhere!)

It’s always been the busiest time for removals, and from June to September we get pretty booked up. So, if you’re thinking you’re going to move house this summer, it’s always worth getting in touch as soon as you can.

It’s never too early to contact us once you know you’re moving. Even if you don’t know when move day will be just yet, we can get the ball rolling with a quote, so you’re ready to go ahead and book as soon as you know when you’re aiming for.

We’re always happy to provide a free quote for you – and we can even do it all by video now, if it’s more convenient! It’s really straightforward – just visit our website. It’s as simple as you showing us round your home, so we can see the types of furniture and the amount of stuff there will be to move, and then one of our estimators will use it to provide you with an estimate. It can either be done as a live call, similar to a FaceTime or Skype video chat, or as a video upload.

The benefits of a video survey mean we can do it at a time which is more convenient for you – with less travel involved for our team, it means we can offer more appointments! And it also speeds up the whole process, meaning you get your quote quicker – handy if it’s looking like your move might come around faster than you think.

If a video survey sounds a bit technological for you (it’s not – honest – but we appreciate it’s not everyone’s cup of tea) we can still come round and see you face to face, at a time that works for you. We’re nothing if not flexible. In a ‘helpful to customers’ kind of way, rather than the gymnastic variety. Although we can’t talk for all of our staff, and some of our removals’ team are certainly very fit from doing all that heavy carrying….

Remember, if you are getting quotes, that your chosen removal firm should always be BAR registered. That doesn’t mean they know their way around the best pubs in town, it means they’re approved by the British Association of Removers. That gives you peace of mind about the quality of service you’re guaranteed to receive. There’s a lot of cowboys out there, and when you’re letting someone drive off with everything you own in the world, do you really want to take the risk?!

So, if a summer move is on the cards for you, why not get in touch? We look forward to catching up on a video chat soon!


McCartheys were there to take much of the stress out of what was a very difficult time for myself and my family.All the staff were patient and understanding of our dilemma and did all they could to help.
The storage facilities were safe and very secure with easy access .
All in all a painless experience.
Would highly recommend.

5 Stars

Really friendly and helpful customer service and explained everything clearly. Easy to reserve and new facility in York seems well secured and easy to access, with handy equipment to use (particularly with extended hours - at additional cost). Only minor comment for improvement during these times would be to have sanitise stations near the keypads as these are touch points for everyone using the facility.

5 Stars

Really good service and nice units. Easy access, great location, nothing to fault
