Revealing a new look for Harrogate

Written by on October 29, 2018


If you’ve taken a trip to Harrogate lately (and if not, why not?), you may have noticed our lovely new building! Not only have we opened a second storage unit behind our original on Ripon Road, so we can offer more space, but our initial building has had a bit (a lot) of a makeover.

We have to say we think it looks fantastic, and hopefully our customers and neighbours agree! McCarthy’s Storage World has been based in Harrogate since 2012, and we underwent our extension last year, increasing our storage space capacity by 50%. This last bit of the jigsaw – our beautiful new storage centre frontage – is the cherry on the cake.

We love Harrogate – and we’re not the only ones. The town is repeatedly voted the best place to live, the happiest place, the most romantic destination and the most glamourous place to reside in surveys around the world. Other claims to fame include hosting the Eurovision Song Content in 1982 (unlikely to happen again given we rarely score above nil points nowadays). It’s the home to the country’s last, fully working Turkish Bath, which dates back to the 19th Century. There’s the wonderful Harrogate spa waters which were discovered in the 16th century. Full Monty actor Hugo Speer, and Downton Abbey favourite Jim Carter both come from the town. Agatha Christie was once found in a Harrogate Hotel, having disappeared from her Surrey home. There’s the stunning Valley Gardens, The Stray and RHS Harlow Carr, Betty’s and its famous Fat Rascal – really, what’s not to love?

It’s probably the reason a lot of people want to live there! If you’re looking to move to or in Harrogate McCarthy’s Removals can help. You’ll be taken care of from first enquiry through to leaving the last box in your new home. We can even help you pack, to take some of the stress out of the run up to the big move. You’ll be amazed how quickly and efficiently our teams work – they do this day in day out, so there’s nothing you can’t tell them about packing everything away in the best and safest way possible.

Of course, being so popular makes Harrogate an expensive place to buy a home or rent business premises – so self storage can come in very handy if you need a bit of extra space. Perhaps you’ve converted your garage or loft, and need some extra room to store bits and pieces? Maybe you want to move to a bigger house and need to declutter your existing home in the short term to put it on the market? Perhaps you’re a business owner and stock is taking over either your office, retail unit or kitchen table?

McCarthy’s Storage World can provide units ranging from the size of a phone box right up to a tennis court, and you can scale unit sizes up and down as needed. There’s no need to be tied into long contracts, and you can gain access whenever you need it – only you hold the key to your unit. There’s plenty of parking for cars or vans and we provide trolleys and lifts to help you get your items to and from your storage unit. Your items are kept safe and sound – and out of your way until you need them!

But – if you’re storing mountains of paperwork – do you really need it? We can offer our Safe Shred services in Harrogate to do a one off or regular shred for you. Documents are taken to our secure shredding facility – or can even be shredded in our mobile shredding van. You receive a certificate of destruction, which is useful from a GDPR perspective – you can be sure any contact details or personal information has been destroyed. And all our shredded paper is recycled so you’re also doing your bit for the environment. We can even shred electronic items in accordance with WEEE too – you don’t want any information from an old hard drive or mobile phone getting into the wrong hands!

However we might be able to help, or whether you just want to come and have a nosy at the new look building – we look forward to catching up soon!



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.

2 Stars

Brilliant overall experience will definitely recommend and use again
