Three McCarthy’s Storage World sites set for expansion!

Written by on April 4, 2019


You may have seen in the news that we had an announcement recently – we’re delighted to tell you that we are expanding our self storage centres in Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield.

Increase in demand has led to us building an additional 10,000 sq ft of storage space across the three Yorkshire sites, equating to an extra 200 individual units. The space includes a range of internal warehouse-style units, but also the first ‘drive-up’ units at the Wakefield site – which are great for those who need regular, easy access.

We’re finding that demand is increasing as more and more people are seeing how self storage can be of benefit in a range of situations – both personal and professional. Storage units ranging from the size of an old telephone box (16 sq ft) to 500 sq ft are available at our three sites, along with larger, bespoke units which can be created to order.

Individuals and families often use self storage to manage big changes in their life. That might be moving house or undertaking building work or renovations – clearing away clutter to put a home on the market or clearing rooms ahead of building work taking place. Self storage can also often be needed if there’s been a separation or, sadly, a death in the family, when additional space can be needed quickly for house clearances. Our lovely staff will always try and work with people to make difficult times as simple, stress free and straightforward as possible.

But we have also seen an increase in businesses of all shapes and sizes using self storage – for example, eBay traders and ‘pick and pack’ companies trading on the internet. Having a flexible space, which comes at a set, all-inclusive fee is appealing, as is knowing they can scale up or down the size of their unit as they need to, to meet business demand. Units can even be fitted with power, WiFi and heating as required – making it easy for businesses to do things on site as needed. We also have our business centre in Leeds, which has a range of office sizes and centralised services like reception, meeting rooms and kitchen facilities. With all costs included it’s a really easy place to get up and running in quickly – and with our self storage centre across the car park, it’s even more convenient for those businesses with stock storage requirements!

So, if there’s any way McCarthy’s can help you – why not get in touch? Whether it’s something you need from a business or a personal perspective, we’re always happy to have a friendly chat about your requirements.
