Feature Locations: Meanwood Removals

Written by on March 2, 2017

Meanwood View

This week’s Feature Location comes very close to the McCarthy’s home. The McCarthy’s Removals & Storage headquarters lie on Meanwood Road that links Leeds City Centre and the suburb of Meanwood which is not just a commuter area but also has plenty of history and natural beauty.

Moving to Meanwood

The parish of Meanwood was established in 1847 with the nearby woods being labelled as Meanwood Woods. The history of the area includes a skirmish in the English Civil War in which “the [Meanwood] beck ran red” – this had led to place name of Stainbeck which lends itself to a number of main roads, businesses and organisations in the area. The Meanwood Valley became known as a place for industry due to the water supply of Meanwood Beck – a number of the existing buildings and terraced housing is visible and in-use today. A turnpike road was established through the valley in the 19th century meaning people have been using Meanwood as a commuter area for nearly two hundred years.

In the modern era there are a number of shops and eateries around the Northside Retail Park area.

Leisure & Attractions if Moving to Meanwood

While Meanwood Beck provided industry and production to the local area in previous times, now there is a fairly hidden trail that provides a rural retreat feel in amongst the urban landscape. The Meanwood Valley Trail runs along Meanwood Beck and into Meanwood Park and takes in a lot of picturesque areas including a garden known as The Hollies. There is a community group made up of volunteers that aim to preserve the area. There is also a cross country race along the route that has been running since 1996.

Removals if Moving to Meanwood

If you are moving to, from or across the Meanwood area then there really is no other removal company to consider. McCarthy’s have been based on Meanwood Road since the early 1980s but have been running removals for over four decades. So our vans are a common sight in the Meanwood area. With our storage and archiving centre, shredding plant and business centre in the area then you can rely on McCarthy’s when moving to Meanwood.

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.

The staff are friendly and helpful (Huddersfield). My belonging are very safe and secure with loads of cameras and you can't enter without a person code. The storage rooms are nice and dry so all the stuff are safe from damp and mold ect.
I would definitely recommend and the price was great.
