The Big Spring Clean

Written by on March 1, 2018

Spring is on its way! Allegedly. I know it doesn’t feel like it when you see snow out of the window, and it’s minus three out there. But we’re officially in March – just three weeks until Spring is here officially, and four until the clocks go forward and the lighter nights begin. And we’ve already talked about how the flowers were starting to appear (they might not have fared so well following the Beast from the East!), along with the home for sale signs.

With Spring comes lots of things we come to expect and love – green shoots, colour re-emerging, lighter nights, baby lambs, Easter eggs – fantastic! But something else which comes hand in hand with the season is Spring Cleaning. It’s a great opportunity to get things sorted at home or at work, and feel refreshed and raring to go after the winter months!

If you’re a homeowner and you can’t see the wood for the trees in terms of all the clutter, perhaps it’s time to investigate some self-storage to help? Our units start from just £6 a week, and you can use it to help you clear out everything from spare furniture and old toys to sporting equipment and your winter woollies (which of course you won’t need for a few months now…)

Maybe you’re hankering after a home move. A good clear out into storage will make your photos look better, your viewings more successful and ensure you get the best possible price for your house. Everyone wants more space, so you need to make the most of what you have! And, of course, once the wheels are set in motion, it’s never too early to get a removals firm organised. You don’t need to book a date to choose the company you trust to safely move all your worldly belongings.

If your office or workspace looks like a bomb (full of paper) has exploded in it, why not consider a shredding service? McCarthy’s Safe Shred can offer an ad hoc or regular service to businesses in Yorkshire, so you never let it build up in the first place! Remember, with GDPR coming into effect in May, businesses of all sizes will have an extra duty of care to keep data about their customers, employees or service users safe. Shredding ensures confidential waste is securely destroyed and recycled – helping you meet your environmental targets too. Individuals can benefit from our shredding service as well, so if you’re a one-man (or woman) band, or just someone who has let years’ worth of bank statements build up, we can send out a sack for you to fill which we then shred in the same way as the larger scale commercial waste.

Perhaps your paperwork isn’t ready to be shredded – it needs to be filed for a period of time, but you’re struggling to keep on top of it in the office. We can offer a document management service, where we keep your files safe for you. Everything is cleverly barcoded so we can retrieve them for you quickly and easily if you need them. We can also make an automatic note of when they need shredding, so it’s all done without you having to be involved. We’re all about taking the hassle out of things for you where we can!

Self storage can also be a bonus for businesses. With storage centres in Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield, you can find a location that’s handy for you, and use it for any excess stock or workplace bits and pieces which are cluttering up your space, but which you can’t get rid of. Spare desks and chairs, computers, props, whatever you need. After all – a tidy desk is a tidy mind!

So, no excuses – it’s time for a Spring Clean. But we’re here to help, so there’s no need to work up too much of a sweat!


Extremely efficient and prompt service. Lee and Conner were very helpful and the job was completed without a hitch. I would recommend them and definitely use the service again. Thanks.
