Professional and stress free experience.

Accommodated the dates for our move at relatively short notice. The virtual assessment of requirements was professionally undertaken and proved to be accurate for our needs in terms of cubic capacity as the move progressed. The pre move packing facility fir kitchen and fragile goods was excellent. Finally, the team that moved us were incredibly accommodating and reassuring throughout. Overall a stress free experience.

Faultless in every way

We've used McCarthy's (both storage and removals) on 3 occasions now. This was our biggest move. I wouldn't bother going to anyone else for either storage or removal. They moved the contents of our large storage unit with no fuss whatsoever. We just gave them to code for the padlock. They emptied the unit and brought everything to our new place. We got a call to say they were 15 minutes away. They unpacked the van and put everything where we asked them to. Even though most of our stuff was in crates, they provided extra packing eg for mattresses, cushions and some bits that we'd rammed into the unit at the last minute. The lads were super friendly, efficient and helpful.They put down loads of matting to walk on. I think they were about an hour unpacking and that was it. Really, really nice fellas. The admin staff were just as great - super helpful, flexible about the move day, what was being moved, nothing was too much trouble. It cost £750 to move the contents of a large storage unit 150 miles. As a laugh, we'd got a quote from another company and it was 3 times as much. The storage facility is great - easily accessed, really flexible, secure, clean and dry. We had no problems whatsoever. Like I say, the third time we've used McCarthy's and they are faultless. If only every aspect of our move had been as easy as dealing with them. Thanks to Sarah (storage) and Cherise (moves) for all their help. And special thanks to Dane and his driver who moved our stuff. You were great.
