Excellent service all round. The ladies in the reception at Harrogate were professional and friendly, the storage unit itself was modern, easy to access and exactly what I needed to store some of my belongings during a house move, cannot fault this facility at all.

5 Stars

Extremely great service

5 Stars

Overall safe and effective storage although my unit occasionally leaked when it rained.The continual fee increases during Covid were unacceptable and my complaints received no reply. Compulsory insurance issued by McCarthys is another rip off factor.
