Leeds removals and storage firm reports sales growth
McCarthy’s, the Leeds-based removals and storage firm, has announced sales growth of 26%, thanks to the success of its business services division.
Sales over the previous 12 months have increased to £3.4m from £2.7m, with services aimed at the professional market proving particularly popular.
The growth follows a successful first year for McCarthy’s Safe Shred, the company’s new confidential shredding service, launched with the acquisition of The Mobile Shredding Company in May 2012.
Safe Shred compliments other business services available from McCarthy’s including archive storage, self storage and commercial removals.
The company also offers fully serviced offices for small businesses, located within its Meanwood Road base.
McCarthy’s managing director, Mike McCarthy, said: “The success of the company over the past 12 months has definitely been helped in part by the launch of Safe Shred just over a year ago.
“We wanted to be able to offer a full package for organisations which were looking to move, manage their documents or storage. With the range of services we offer, we can help store archives off site for businesses, alert them when a given destruction date approaches and then safely shred and dispose of the documents if needed.
“We’ve also seen an increase in businesses using the self storage facilities, as the rise of internet companies and entrepreneurs working from their spare bedroom means there are lots of smaller organisations without any space to keep stock.
“Using our storage means it’s just one all inclusive price, rather than all the extra costs involved in running your own premises.”
