The pawfect way to use business storage

Written by on February 12, 2019


Here at McCarthy’s we understand that sometimes it can be hard to imagine how self storage can work for you, or to take the plunge and make the call to find out more.

That is why, from time to time, we like to share a case study from someone who already uses our facilities, to allow you to see how we help different types of customers on a day-to-day basis (or week-to-week or month-to-month. One of the great things about self storage is you can come and go as often – or infrequently – as you like!)

One of our business customers in our Wakefield self storage centre who we always like to have a chat with is Michelle from Oscar Pet Foods – and it’s not just because she often brings her four-legged furry friend Oscar with her, although we’re never going to turn down canine cuddles!

Michelle operates her Oscar pet supplies franchise business within the Wakefield area, providing free delivery of a full range of quality, pet products. Oscar is the UK’s largest pet food home delivery service, but it does more than just food, also selling toys, treats, bedding and feeding equipment, and not just for dogs but also for cats, rabbits, birds and small animals!

The company has a national network of local Nutritional Advisors, which is where Michelle comes in. As she covers the Wakefield area, Michelle wanted somewhere central to store stock as she travelled out and about to her customer base. When McCarthy’s Storage World in Wakefield opened, she knew it was ideal for her needs, and she has been a happy customer for two years.

We asked Michelle a few questions about how she uses McCarthy’s to help her business:

– What size unit do you have?

I now have a 35 sq foot storage unit, which is ideal for what I need. However, I have scaled up and down in the past, depending on what I’ve needed at that precise time. It’s a real benefit to me to know that there is that flexibility is I need it.

– Why did you choose McCarthy’s?

As Kirsty and Phil say it’s all down to ‘location, location, location’! The fact it’s in the centre of the city was perfect for me, as I travel around a lot doing deliveries, so it’s really convenient. I can also always get parked, which is a definite plus!

Once I moved in, I quickly realized the staff were amazing too – so friendly and helpful – so that’s a definite plus!

– Did you always know self storage would be the best solution for your business?

I knew I didn’t want to be storing all my stock at home, and there’s no need for me to have an office given I’m out and about a lot of the time (and that would have been much more expensive) so self storage was the ideal solution. I can come and go as I please and I know everything is kept safe and secure when I’m not around.

– How often do you visit the storage unit?

I tend to visit twice a week to restock the van for deliveries. But it’s great that the flexibility is there to come and go as I please, to suit my own working diary!

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.
