Excellent service

An excellent service for us at a difficult time. We needed a unit to store the household goods of a relative during the Covid outbreak. The reception staff were very helpful with the booking of the unit and in suggesting last minute help in moving the goods. All of our dealings with McCarthy's were met with quiet and pleasant efficiency. The unit was dry, clean and easy to access.

100% Recommended - Taking the stress out of a stressful time!

McCarthy’s were absolutely second to none, from the word go. The level of communication from the date of my enquiry was just right. They helped select the right unit size, and facilitated the moving in process with a friendly smile. Even before we got to the UK. Moving at any time can be stressful, but Jess went the extra mile to ensure we were always happy and made our move in and move out stress free. For this, I am truly thankful and I can’t speak more highly of the service we received! 100% recommended! Thank you for all your help

Great Customer Service and Secure Facility

Really friendly and helpful customer service and explained everything clearly. Easy to reserve and new facility in York seems well secured and easy to access, with handy equipment to use (particularly with extended hours - at additional cost). Only minor comment for improvement during these times would be to have sanitise stations near the keypads as these are touch points for everyone using the facility.

Great Customer Service and Facilities

Been with McCarthy's for about three years. Not cheap but they are very flexible and have always tried to give me the most economical size unit for my needs and I have moved three times to achieve this. The facilities are very good and always scrupulously clean and tidy. Very convenient and secure 24/7 access. I have dealt with at least four different members of staff and they have all been terrific - very helpful, efficient and friendly and make you feel valued as a customer. Can't fault them on service and facilities and would recommend them without hesitation.
