The Moving Box is now part of the BigSteelBox Family
We’re very excited to announce that as of November 1, 2021, Ontario-based moving and storage company, The Moving Box, became part of the BigSteelBox family.
The Moving Box has been in business for over 14 years, with locations in Brantford, Hamilton, Simcoe, Dundas and Paris. President of The Moving Box, Mike Bekendam, decided the time was right to sell his business, but it was important for him to find a Canadian company that shared the values on which his business was built.
“One of my concerns in selling the business was the future of The Moving Box team, who helped make the business so successful. Not only does BigSteelBox value an exceptional customer experience, they also have a strong culture that values their employees,” says Mike Bekendam.
“I’m thrilled that almost all of our staff have chosen to join BigSteelBox and continue with their same roles! This continuity should ensure a seamless transition for our valued customers.”
BigSteelBox is very happy to welcome all Moving Box staff and customers to our family as well!
“We’ve known Mike and admired The Moving Box as a competitor for a really long time, so when he approached us about a potential acquisition, we were really excited,” says Brian Hawkins, Director of Operations at BigSteelBox.
“We knew there was an alignment in our culture and values, especially in the way they treat their customers and staff, so we’re very fortunate to have this opportunity to welcome The Moving Box to the the BigSteelBox family.”
Over the next few months, very little will change in how we service Moving Box and BigSteelBox customers. Eventually, The Moving Box will transition to the BigSteelBox brand, however, throughout this period our dedicated customer service team and drivers will continue to do their best to surpass your expectations and meet your moving and storage needs.
Adding these locations to the BigSteelBox network will allow us to better serve customers across Canada who need to move to or from southern Ontario, but it will also provide new options for customers living within southern Ontario who need regional or long distance moving services. It will also be very beneficial to business customers who require storage at multiple locations within Ontario.
It’s our priority to make moving and storage feel better for our customers, and we’re so happy to welcome The Moving Box team to our family, which we know will only make us stronger.
