Flexible storage for all your stuff over the holidays.

If you’re going back home to your family for the holidays or jetting off around the world, there’s no point lugging all your stuff around when we have student storage from as little as £6.00 a week!

It’s amazing how much you can fit into a storage unit; so find some friends to split the cost of the unit with you. AND we only charge you up to the day you move out, so you won’t pay for time you don’t need! 

A storage solution for everyone

No matter the need, we have space for you

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.
