Storage for the last 7 months

We have just completed using Storage King for the last seven months. We have never used a storage facility before and in this instance ended up renting three units. The whole experience went like clock work which was a great relief as it made a complicated house move an awful lot easier. The icing on the cake was to have the fantastic help of Collette Wilson and Natalie. I have to say I was sceptical at first but the cost was sensible and the units were clean and accessible 24/7. I would have no hesitation in using Storage King again if we needed to.

First impressions…

The whole first day arrival experience was swift and straightforward. The actual unit I chose was spacious and very handy for coming & going. It was clean and dry and safe & everything I needed it to be

Excellent service from start to finish. We had to move our moving in date due to the house not being ready which was no problem with the team. Natasha and Jess were very accommodating in every aspect, making the whole process hassle free. Honestly, the best customer service I have received anywhere in years!! Highly recommended!

We needed storage in York as we were moving house and from the very start, Jess and Colette have been amazing. Their attention to detail and outstanding customer service is clear to see. No matter the request, they have been happy to help and are always on hand if we have any questions. As for the storage, it is clean, light and safe. With CCTV, a personal code to get in and out, as well padlocks for the doors to the unit, I feel happy that our belongings are being well looked after. We chose to add the out of hours access to our storage package, and even this was easy to organise. Nothing is too much for McCarthy's who go out of their way to make sure you are well looked after. If you are looking for storage in York, I would highly recommend McCarthy's.
