Time to hit the road?

Here at McCarthy’s we always keep our eyes on updates surrounding the property market. Following Brexit many suggested that we would see a huge dip in house values, a worrying prediction! However, we’ve been very pleased to see the papers reporting that post-Brexit, the US Election and the Christmas season, house prices are on the rise!

Of course, even with this new information many potential movers still feel nervous about upping sticks from their current homes. However, with experts saying this is a great time to sell, those who choose to be brave stand a great chance of making hearty profits.

The Yorkshire Post reported that information from Hometrack indicated an annual growth of 4.9% within the housing market in Leeds. Our neighbours in Sheffield also enjoyed growth of 4.3%. House prices in Leeds remain strong with the average home being worth an estimated £153,400, whilst Mancunians could expect to see their properties valuing at around £151,200.

As experts in the moving game, we know that the process often takes longer than you might expect. Whilst rainy February may not feel like a great time to move, once your sale goes through it’s likely to be summer months, a great time to relocate.

So, where do McCarthy’s come in? With 40 years of experience in the removal industry we know a thing or two about getting you and your belongings happily transported from A to B. Our happy and helpful team will be on hand to support you right from your initial call, whilst making the whole process as easy and stress free as possible. We will put you in touch with a move coordinator who will be by your side throughout. They will begin by taking you through available options and giving advice on what could work well for you before choosing a final moving date.

During the run up to the day, you can use our moving house checklist to make sure you’re on track and making progress. When the big day comes, our happy helpers will be on hand to do all the heavy lifting whilst also providing advice and materials to make sure your precious items arrive safely in their new home.

If you’ve decided that a full moving team won’t be necessary for your particular needs why not use our man and van service? This option includes a crew member to help with lifting items and a handy van, large enough for furniture and lots of boxes!

Finally, if you need boxes take a look at our online box shop, the perfect place to pick up bags, blankets, wrap, tape and you guessed it – boxes! Give us a call on 0113 262 3000 to find out how we can help.




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!
