Our new Harrogate storage centre to open its doors

Written by on August 16, 2017

Earlier in the year we told you work was starting on a new extension at our Harrogate self storage facility.

We’re now delighted to reveal that the doors are ready to be opened!

We’ve invested £1 million in designing and building a purpose built facility which sits behind our existing self storage centre on Ripon Road. It will increase our capacity by 50 per cent – which was much needed as our current units have been pretty much fully booked for quite some time! In fact, we’ve had a waiting list for the new building – and we’re excited that new customers will be moving in from next week.

Many of the new customers are SMEs looking for extra storage or workspace. We have pick and pack businesses, those wanting extra off-site storage space, organisations looking for somewhere to put stock in the run up to Christmas, and people wanting to create workshops. We can supply heating, electricity and WiFi as needed to make the space ‘work’ for you. With the rise in internet retail businesses, self storage makes perfect sense, offering somewhere to store and ship stock from (that’s a bit of a tongue twister!). Which means you can get your spare room or garage back, and your stock is kept safe and organised when you close the door at the end of the day (or the middle of the night if you need 24 hour access).

Of course, businesses aren’t our only customers. We also have many individuals who require extra space for all manner of reasons. Perhaps they’re looking to move and want to declutter ahead of putting their home on the market. Perhaps they’ve had to empty a loved one’s home and need some time to sort through items more carefully. Maybe they’re downsizing. An increasing trend is for people to sell and move out of their home, moving the majority of their belongings into storage and staying with friends or in short term rented accommodation. Then they have the advantage of no chain and speed when it comes to buying a new home.

Whatever you need it for, we can help advise you on the size of storage unit you’re likely to need. The standard storage units vary in size from 16sq ft – which is about the size of an old phone box (back in the day when no one had mobiles) – up to 500sq ft. However, as with any of our sites, we’re always more than happy to come up with a bespoke area to exactly suit your requirements, and you can always scale up or down if you realise you need more or less space. There is also one 4,000 sq ft warehouse available on site, which would suit a variety of businesses. We can offer flexible lease terms, and we know that warehouse space in Harrogate can be hard to find, so give us a call if it sounds of interest.

All of our units will feature state of the art individual alarms. These will set independently when the door is closed, and will mean you can rest assured that your belongings are safe and secure. The whole site is covered by CCTV and remote and onsite security, and no one can gain access to the building without a special code. As always, you hold the only keys to your unit – even we can’t gain access without you.

There’s also a packaging shop on site, so if you run out of boxes or packaging whilst you’re there, you can be sorted in a jiffy (bag).

Why not come and take a look at the new Harrogate facility? Pop in or give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have. We have a new store manager – Vicky – who we need to keep busy!


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.

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.

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