Student Storage gets top marks

Written by on May 11, 2018

It’s fast approaching the time of year when the end of term is on everyone’s mind. The end is in sight when it comes to exams, and plans can start to be made for a fun (or productive) summer! Especially now the sun has actually been seen in Yorkshire for the first time this year.

If you’re living in university or college-owned accommodation, often the dates to move out are set in stone, and there’s no facility to leave any belongings. Or perhaps you’re in private accommodation and you’re temporarily between digs. Or maybe it’s your last year and you’re job-hunting for post-graduation, but you know you want to stay in the area.

All those situations can leave your belongings being temporarily homeless, while you visit friends, go to see family or take a well-earned holiday. Without a car it can be tricky getting your stuff home (even with it, it can be a few car loads) – and carrying everything you own on a coach or train journey doesn’t sound like fun. And since your parents turned your room into a gym the minute you left, there’s not really anywhere to put it all when you get there anyway…

That’s where student self storage can come in. We can keep your belongings safe and sound from just £6 a week – that’s less than a takeaway! We know juggling your finances as a student can be tough so we make sure there’s no additional costs for you to worry about, just a low flat rate you can budget for.

Our self storage centres in Harrogate, Leeds and Wakefield are all easily accessible from most of the nearby student accommodation, by bus or car. We can even help by providing a man and van so you can have an extra pair of hands helping you get everything from A to B. After all, carrying a chair on the number 92 bus might not be that easy.

All of our sites have lifts and trolleys so you can get your things to your unit with ease. You have your own individual lock for your storage unit, and you are the only one with a key – we can’t even get in there without you!

You can gain access to the building whenever you need it with a unique pin code, so if you suddenly remember you’ve packed away a pair of shoes or a book you really need, you can get hold of it whenever you like. While you’re not on site, CCTV and round the clock security keeps everything safe so you don’t need to worry about it.

If you’ve only got a few bits to store, you can even share a unit with a friend – and there’s no need to worry about paying for long-term contracts – we’ll only charge you for the time you use it.

All that and we’ll price match any other like-for-like quote you’ve got – what’s to lose? Store up your stuff, and then leave yourself free to go travelling, get a job, visit friends and family – whatever your plans for the perfect summer includes. Not long to wait now!


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.

5 Stars

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.

5 Stars

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