Great service at McCarthy’s

I’ve been using McCarthy’s for a long time now, and am more than happy with my storage unit. The units are very accessible and always clean and tidy. The helpful staff are always on hand if you need any assistance. Wendi in particular has been a pleasure to deal with and extremely efficient.

Their service was above and beyond as Wendi and her husband drove to the York site on Sunday afternoon to accommodated my son with his storage room as we were traveling from Glasgow to South Wales via York to drop off his belongings for university.

Professional, friendly and thorough

We had the packing and moving service, they were very professional, polite and did a great job. They didn't just put everything in the boxes they held back things like filler or legal documents in case we might need them. There was also a delay in getting into the new house and they were very patient and didn't complain. Made things a huge amount less stressful for us. I would highly recommend.

Popped in as we do the weekly shop next door at Aldi's - very impressed by the whole set up the building and layout especially - its brand new! Took away a quote for a storage space, will definitely use them in the near future the location is great and the costs lower than we thought win/win for us.

Jess was so lovely and made sure that I understood everything

I haven’t had to use storage before so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but Jess just made everything really easy. It’s just really nice to get someone who takes the time to explain everything.

Susan Mistry - 3 month(s) ago

A great service all round

A very friendly and efficient service. We were desperately in need of a storage unit and a 'man and van' to help us clear the house of a relative who had recently died. We could not have asked for better support. The unit was booked, and the storage staff directed us to the removals reception who promptly found an available van. The removal men and van were also great. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

McCarthys was reasonably priced and easy to access storage. We recently moved house and used a storage container in the Harrogate centre. The staff and in particular Tina were very helpful and happy to help. Very pleased with the service and a big thank you to Tina.

Self storage

Have used self storage for some while now and our needs for the room size had changed, (needed smaller room). popped in to discuss and within 15 minutes a smaller room had been located and allocated. Completed the actual move the following week. Staff very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.

8 month(s) ago

From the first phone call the service was excellent I obtained all the information I needed and pretty much made my decision there and then that I going to use them to store my belongings. Upon signing up, Tina was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for her, she showed me around different units so I could size them up before deciding which one I would need. She was so friendly and helpful and even gave me a direct contact number should have anything happened when I was at my unit. I would definitely recommend using McCarthys again as their team are friendly and professional and the prices were the best in the area!

Efficient and very helpful staff and good value for money service

We used Mc Carthy's for a 2 stage move from Leeds into their storage facility and then from storage to the Lake District over a 3 month period Jul- Sept 2019 .The company were very responsive in providing a competitive quote and helpful in resolving our queries. We also used the firm to pack up our Leeds house which was well worth the money. Our removal team ( Wayne ,Daniel, Gareth and Jordan) were very efficient and extremely helpful throughout the process.

Very professional but friendly and very helpful

From initial enquiry to securing a unit and then handing back once finished with I could not fault the local team and in particular Wendy for all her help and advice. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing storage facilities. This was the Wakefield branch

Clean, secure and stotage made simple

Friendly helpful staff that made it easy for us to store our goods at their Harrogate premises. The facilities were very clean and secure and we had easy access at all times.

Herbie Wisniewski - 1 year(s) ago

A very friendly team, well led by a very nice lady at the helm.

The whole process is well run. Collection, storage and forwarding to another address, all went very well indeed. The lady at the helm, and her assistants are so friendly and helpful. The guys on the trucks are very competent and friendly people too. It is a well run operation, from start to finish. I would certainly recommend this company to others and also would use them again should we move again. Spot on! That is the best way to describe them. Thank you McCarthy's. Tom B

Professional, efficient and amazing service

McCarthys co ordinated my house move with less than a days notice. They were true professionals! Porrick, Wayne and Steve were absolutely amazing throughout the whole process. They knew how to keep everyone calm and upbeat during what is a very stressful time for any family. It’s so refreshing to see people who are truly dedicated to their jobs and willing to go the extra mile to make sure their customers are happy. They all deserve a promotion!!!! I would recommend McCarthys to anyone. Thank you again.

Would highly recommend

Not had much contact with them regarding anything as we’ve had no problems from first getting the double garage sized unit until February. The units are dry and clean would use again if I ever needed to.

Mr & Mrs Smith - 2 year(s) ago

Happy with the Wakefield Staff and removal guys

Mc Carthys were great to a point . Wendy in the Wakefield office was so efficient and professional and knew her job . The removal guys were also very good . Only let down was the abruptness of Leeds Office , I purchased from Wendy at least £90 of storage boxes so once unpacked I decided to give these to Mc Carthys who in the end could not be bothered to collect them after 2 phone calls so they’ve been placed in a skip for waste , what a shame and waste .

Susan Campbell - 2 year(s) ago

Fantastic people, fantastic move done!

From the initial estimator visit to calling into speak with office staff and the actual packing and moving days with the van crews they were brilliant. Down to earth and excellent in each skill area. Cannot recommend them highly enough
