When considering storage there are a few key things you need to think about. How long do you need storage for? How much space do you need? Do you have a particular budget to adhere to? Here at McCarthy’s we are on hand to help you choose the perfect solution for you. This week we will compare two particular options, Self-Storage and Container Storage in order to give you a clear idea of what you’re really looking for.

You don’t need regular access to your items but you do need a safe and reliable place to keep them. Container Storage might be just the right fit! The process starts with a skilled removal crew arriving at your chosen location to assist in carefully packing your items into a sealed container. The customer is present meaning they can be sure they are happy with the final result.

Once everything is packed and in order we will carefully transport your container and keep it safe until you’re ready to access it again. Containers are stored in our 150,000 square foot storage space which is protected by CCTV 24 hours a day. If you require access to your items, you just need to give us a few days’ notice in order to make arrangements.

If you think you may need regular or spontaneous access to your goods then Self Storage would be the best option for you. Whether you’re hoping to free up some room in your home, you’re temporarily moving into furnished accommodation or even if you run a business from home and need space for products, self-

Self-storage units are accessible 24/7, 365 days per year so whether it be first thing in the morning or last thing at night you can rest assured that you can get hold of your items as you need them.

Testimonials

I stored my belongings in this space for one year, and it was absolutely pleasant experience. The staff is extremely professional and helpful, and they take time to understand the requirements of the client.
Even after not visiting my locker for one year, the storage is in excellent condition even after getting it back. I would recommend this to anyone. Really good experience!

5 Stars

Everything was just easy and straight forward. I've used other self storage places in the past but this was just so much better. The manager Sarah was great and really friendly. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using them again next year!!!

Jodie was fantastic and getting the storage booked was really easy. The unit was perfect for what I needed to store over the summer.
