BigSteelBox Launches Corporate Relocation Service
BigSteelBox supports Canadian HR recruiters in competitive jobs market
January 23, 2012 – Toronto
Today at the HRPA Annual Conference and Trade Show at the Toronto Convention Centre, the largest gathering of human resource professionals in Canada, BigSteelBox, the fastest growing moving and storage company, announced the launch of its corporate relocation service.
At the HR show, BigSteelBox is showcasing its innovative city-to-city service that is revolutionizing the moving and storage industry by providing a less expensive, more convenient solution that will add to the services of professional recruiters and HR managers.
“Knowing you can offer your employees a stress-free move will reduce the time needed to close hiring requisitions or the transferring of an employee to a new location," says president Jason Siebenga. "They arrive happy with their primary focus on their job and not their relocation.”
“Our residential business is based on providing our customers with a better moving and storage solution. Because we deliver a BigSteelBox to our customers’ homes, it’s a more convenient and affordable solution than using movers or storage lockers.”
The city-to-city service rates come in at 20 per cent less than traditional moving companies. For example, a move from Ontario to the hot job market in Saskatchewan is just over $4,000 and a Winnipeg to Calgary move comes in at $2,800.
Siebenga says their new corporate relocation service will ease the administrative tasks of placements that involve a move, freeing up resources to focus on strategic HR initiatives.
“Relocation can be a major hurdle in the recruitment process,” says Siebenga. “We’re seeing increasing competition for skilled workers, particularly in the mining, construction and technology sectors. The expense and stress of relocating should never prevent a company from getting the candidates they want.”
BigSteelBox’s unique city-to-city service provides a different way to move and is part of growing trend of mobile storage. With hardwood floors, bright white paint, the clean and attractive shipping container is delivered by truck to the customer and left for as long as it takes to pack. No more moving day stress as the BigSteelBox is then picked up and moved to the new location when it is packed and ready.
Available in over 50 cities, house-to-house delivery of one 20’ BigSteelBox includes one month’s rental from initial drop off in the current city to empty pick up in the new city. With the additional storage approximately $150 per month, the mobile storage seems the perfect solution whether new recruits are in temporary housing or have made a final home purchase.
In its latest report, Statistics Canada reported that job growth exceeds expectations adding thousands more jobs than economists expected. A recent Workopolis report found that a third of Canadian businesses intend to hire in 2013.
With 17 full service locations across Canada BigSteelBox has become the fastest growing moving and storage company in a multi-billion dollar industry with its innovative container-based service. Established in 1999, BigSteelBox has built its success by delivering an outstanding customer experience, while consistently providing innovative products and services. With its head office in Kelowna, BigSteelBox has locations across B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.
