Tidy room, tidy mind!

Written by on October 11, 2016


Did you know that the 4th October was National ‘Improve Your Office Day’? The date marks a great time of the year to organise, spruce up and generally improve your working environment – who needs spring cleaning when you can have the autumn version!



Whether you graft in a bustling workshop, a hectic office or an area in your own home, ensuring the space suits you is key to an efficient working life.

The idea for the national day initially came about following the organiser’s realisation that creating a more interesting, exciting and efficient space allows for the quality of work to significantly improve. As well as an enhancement in results, workers themselves also feel more fulfilled and happy within their professional lives. With the average Brit spending more than 40 hours a week and most of their waking lives at work, it only makes sense that this setting is as pleasant as it can be.

All of this got us thinking, what can McCarthy’s do to assist our customers when improving the area in which they work?

Beginning with the desk, a piece of furniture that many of us feel we are attached to. As we all know a messy desk can be distracting, demotivating and generally unappealing! It’s hard to keep on top of the mounds of folders, documents and discarded coffee cups that overflow around us. However, putting aside some time to de-clutter and rearrange can be hugely beneficial. Make sure your office comes with lots of storage and places to arrange your everyday items, if it doesn’t it might be time to get rid of the old and welcome the new.

If you feel that you need a whole change of scenery and choose to relocate, why not get in touch with our removals team. We are on hand to help and services can be molded to suit your particular needs. If you have lots to manoeuver, a team will ensure you barely lift a finger, our trucks come complete with workers ready to do the ‘heavy lifting’ ahead of transporting items to their new home.

man-vanIf you work alone or have a small team why not consider our ‘man and van’ service. Our handy helpers would be more than happy to assist in manoeuvring and delivering your office essentials to the next location.

Those simply wishing to make some space and declutter can rent storage suited to their personal requirements. Spaces range from the small to the mighty and can be accessed 24/7, the space is really yours to do with what you wish!

If piles of documents are slowly growing now could be the perfect time to finally take control and eradicate that paper Everest! Our shredding services range from options perfect for those having a one-off clean to those wanting to restore order by arranging for a secure bin to be fitted in the office. The bins can then be collected every two to eight weeks depending on the requirements. All documents are shredded in secure, CCTV monitored areas ahead of being recycled.

If you need to keep your documents on file but want to free up office space McCarthy’s Document Management is the answer. We can provide secure, clean space (and racking if required) and leave you to manage your system without any unnecessary interfering or retrieval cost at our Self Storage centres in Leeds and Harrogate, or we can barcode your boxes and files and look after the collection and retrieval of your documents for you.

More tips for a harmonious work place:

Take 10 – Putting aside 10 minutes a day to clear up and rid your working area of any unnecessary clutter will save time in the future whilst also eradicating mess and rubbish.

Clear the cables – Tidy up wires and cables into proper cable tidies. The nifty little boxes will eradicate the chance of any trips or accidents whilst also clearing space.

Go green – Buy a potted plant. Research consistently shows some greenery will lift moods and create better Feng Shui in a space. pot-plants-london-flat

Get organised – Arranging documents into properly filed binders will ensure nothing gets lost and that one piece of information you’re looking for in the future can be found in a flash!

Let the music play – Buy a radio or some speakers – come Monday morning calming music will ease you through that heap of emails, whilst some upbeat tunes on Friday afternoon signal a well-deserved weekend.

Support yourself – Make sure your office chair supports and encourages good posture. Why not also try out a few at desk exercises to keep the blood flowing!


Great service from start to finish. From signing up to the refund of the deposit at the end. We will certainly recommend and use again if needed. The offer we got initially was great and when we cancelled as we no longer needed it, we were offered a little more time too. very good indeed.

Great service from the storage department. Helped me find the right unit and it was a smooth transaction. Would recommend them highly

Would have liked more information in print regarding the actual pricing structure particularly all the 'added' extras - insurance, cleaning, deposit, padlock - rather than just the price quoted on-line! Also details regarding access times - as there seems to be an additional charge for longer / 24-hour access, only standard office opening hours covered by the charge.

Staff very pleasant and helpful!
