The Leeds Removal Company You Can Trust

Written by on July 14, 2017

McCarthy’s Removals has been based in Leeds for almost 50 years now. Over that time we’ve seen quite a few changes in homes, belongings (there weren’t many flat screen TVs in 1970) and the city we come from!

Property prices go up and down (mainly up…) – in fact Yorkshire property prices saw a Spring boom, according to recent figures from the Land Registry. As a region we saw the largest monthly house price rise in April, increasing by 3.9 per cent (more than double the national average). That means the average house price in Yorkshire is now £155,357 – again a bit different to the 1970s where the average home cost less than £5,000.

But some things never change. People still want a reliable firm to take care of all their worldly goods – if you had your doubts, it could be a scary prospect seeing a van drive off with everything you own in it! But we know that once you’ve met our wonderful teams of removal experts, you’ll feel at ease about the process. Whether you’re moving from Meanwood to Morley, Alwoodley to Adel, Horsforth to Hull or even Garforth to Goa, we’ll make sure your belongings get there safely, in one piece, and on time.

Because we’re a Yorkshire born and bred company, people sometimes wonder if we just offer removals in the local area. But we really do move people all over the world. In the past few months we really have organised the move for a young couple from Leeds city centre to Australia, where they’re working for a couple of years, and for a family moving from Bramhope over to Spain to live closer to relatives. We can sort transporting your belongings via air or by sea, and have contacts across the globe to help with ensuring a smooth move at the other end.

Whether it’s a move across the county, or a move across continents, If you know you’re going to be relocating in the next few months, why not give us a call now to give you a quote? Summer is our busiest period, and so we always recommend homeowners get us to provide a quote in advance – then when you know your moving date, you can give us a call and we can book you straight in, rather than needing to wait to send someone out to see you. You can even arrange a home visit via our website. We normally need to come and visit you to get an accurate idea of how much there is to move. One person’s minimalist two bedroom semi can be very different to someone else’s packed to the rafter style!

Remember we have our box shop on Meanwood Road in Leeds, in Harrogate and in Wakefield (as well as online) where you can get everything you need to help you pack up (if you don’t want to take advantage of our packing service). We sell boxes of all shapes and sizes, tape, bubble wrap, and all kinds of tricks of the trade to ensure your things are kept safely preserved on their trip from A to B (or Farsley to Fife).

We also have our McCarthy’s World Self Storage Centre, where you can store things independently for as long or short a time as needed, or we can arrange to store your boxes and furniture for a longer period of time. With the self storage, you can gain access whenever you like, as your things are kept in a locked room for which only you have the key. Or we can pack your items in to crates within our removal van, which we then take to a secure room to be kept sealed until you request them to be taken to your new property. It’s a great idea if your chain isn’t quite tying in on dates, or if you want to move in gradually so you can do some DIY.

Don’t just take our word for it – check out our reviews on Feefo. We’re rated 4.9/5 by our customers. Why not see for yourself?


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.
