Building work has begun on a new 50,000 sq ft self storage centre in York which is set to open in March 2020.

McCarthy’s has invested £3 million in its first purpose build ‘McCarthy’s Storage World’ self storage facility which is on the site of a former grain store on Water Lane at Clifton Without.

McCarthy’s is a Yorkshire-based family business which has been operating for more than 50 years, specialising in removals and storage. It currently has self storage centres in Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield. The new storage centre will offer self storage to both businesses and individuals, with units ranging in size from 16 sq ft to 500 sq ft, and will create several new jobs.

The grain store previously based on the Water Lane site was demolished in 2009, when plans were agreed to use the wider brownfield site for a mixture of commercial and residential purposes.

Mike McCarthy, managing director of McCarthy’s, said: “We’re delighted that work has commenced on our new McCarthy’s Storage World facility in York. We had been looking for an appropriate site in the city for quite some time, as there is a definite need for such a facility in the area for both businesses and individuals. This will be our first purpose built self storage centre so it has been fantastic to be able to design it from scratch to best meet the needs of our customers.

“We find we have a lot of online businesses and entrepreneurs who use our sites to hold stock, and to assist with that units can be fitted with power, WiFi and heating as needed. Individuals often use our storage space to help manage life’s big changes, so they may be planning a house move, decluttering prior to a house sale, undertaking renovations or dealing with a separation or death within the family and needing somewhere safe to store items whilst plans are made. The nature of our business therefore means impact on local traffic will be minimal, as many people store their items without wanting to access them regularly.

“As a family business with Yorkshire roots, set up by my father five decades ago, we pride ourselves on being a good member of the communities we’re based within, and bringing investment to local areas. We look forward to becoming part of the York community and providing a much-needed service to local businesses and consumers.”

Testimonials

Jodie and Sarah were fantastic. They managed to sort out a storage unit for me straight away and even stayed after they should have shut to help me out. I would have been absolutely stuck if they hadn’t gone the extra mile.
It’s rare these days to get that level of service. MASSIVE thank you.
