BigSteelBox Abbotsford storage yard from Hwy 1Open since 2004, the BigSteelBox Store in Abbotsford was one of our first locations! It’s also one of our most visible Stores, located at 37400 North Parallel Road, right next to the busy Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy #1). If you’ve ever travelled that stretch of highway through Abbotsford, you’ve probably noticed the huge stacks of BigSteelBox shipping containers right next to the road.

We have been providing moving Boxes and portable storage containers to residential and commercial customers in Abbotsford, Langley, Chilliwack, and the entire Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland areas for several years.

BigSteelBox Abbotsford makes mobile storage simple. Our 20’ moving containers are the most common size we rent and sell, but we also offer 10’ storage containers, which are ideal when space to place the Box is limited or you need less storage space. We may also have 8’ Boxes in stock at the Abbotsford store, please call to check availability.

Keep your BigSteelBox at your location or pack it up and have it stored at our secure yard located at 37400 North Parallel Road for a small additional onsite storage charge.

A BigSteelBox storage container rental is ideal to have onsite during a home renovation or during a big outdoor project. They’re also handy if you’re selling your home and need to declutter to stage it.

Billing Details - What to expect on your first invoice:

Storage at Your Place: When you book your BigSteelBox you will be charged for the empty delivery, empty pick up, and one month’s rent on your first invoice. After that, you will be charged your recurring monthly rent.

Storage at Our Yard: If you choose to store your Box at our yard, you will be charged for the empty delivery, loaded move, and one month’s rent on your first invoice. After that, you will be charged your recurring monthly rent plus an on-site fee of $19/mo for a 10' or $29/mo for a 20' Box.

Load Your Items at Our Yard: If you want to avoid transportation costs, you can choose to bring your items to your BigSteelBox Store and load them there. While this option is less convenient than having a Box delivered to your location, it will save you money and still gives you the flexibility to have your loaded Box delivered to another location in the future.

Our local move pricing applies to moves within the city limits of Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission. Storage at our secure yard in-between homes is subject to an extra loaded move charge and on-site storage fee, as our truck needs to make one additional trip back to our yard.

Pat Nault, Store Manager
I like Abbotsford because it is a smaller, quiet city but still has so much to offer. Its proximity to bigger cities like Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland is also a bonus. I enjoy working for BigSteelBox because I believe in the work we’re doing to help make moving and storage easier for people. We genuinely care about our colleagues and our customers.
 

Analeissa Mayer, Storage Consultant
A few things that I love about Abbotsford is that we are a "City in the Country", surrounded by beautiful mountains. And, it seems like no matter where you go you will always find someone you know! I love working for BigSteelBox because we are a company that truly cares about our customers and we strive to meet all of their needs. We love our family here, and we want our customers to feel like they are a part of our family too!!

I actually live in Agassiz, BC, but I like coming to Abbotsford to do a lot of my shopping - especially at Costco! I enjoy working for BigSteelBox because we have a great staff and it is a friendly work environment.
 

Deric Williamson, Yard Supervisor
I like living in the Fraser Valley because of the great atmosphere and small town feel. I enjoy working for BigSteelBox because it is a family-orientated company and everyone who works here is very friendly.

Big Steel made it possible!

Very happy with excellent customer service from the first phone call to getting the container then adding second one and using their storage in Abbottsford,BC. They are on time and exactly what they advertise to be.It made it possible to do it over 2 week period due to 2 small kids and our hectic schedule then delivered to a new city at affordable prices.I would recommend Big Steel Box for their affordable prices and use them again in a heart beat!

Excellent and professional service. We would definitely use Big Steel Box again. The only issue we had was the seal on the door allowed a bit of moisture in.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you Phyllis!

My first time using a storage unit. The staff was very helpful & accommodating. The unit itself was very clean. We found this very helpful while we had new flooring put in our home.

Big Steel Box is the way to go!

Best way to move ever and the handy driver managed to strategically place the container underneath our carport so we could unload it, rain or shine. Great service and coordination, thanks!
Hat's off to the Poco office as well.

optional

Something I thought of as were unloading the container and walking everything across the road - have you ever considered for customers that require the container placed in a tight spot, to charge an extra fee (whatever it would take) to send out a highub that could place the container almost anywhere? I would have paid whatever if that would have been an option. Thanks

Response from BigSteelBox

Good question Les. Most of our Stores can bring in hiab cranes for situations like this at an additional charge to the customer. There are often weight limitations for hiabs, however, so loaded containers can sometimes pose issues depending on what is being stored inside. If we are aware of the tight drop off location and a customer tells us they are willing to pay extra for a crane, we can price that out for them. It sounds like in your situation we may not have been aware of the restrictions of your drop off location why booking your delivery, which could be why we didn’t bring up this hiab option. Sorry about that. If you require our services again in the future, please mention the space limitations and we’ll be happy to look into crane options for you.

Great Company

In spite of a mix up of delivery time I highly recommend BSB for your moving needs. I would like to thank Janelle from Abbotsford office for her wonderful service. After watching how gently the boxes were loaded and unloaded my fears of damage disappeared. This was my first experience with BSB and I will continue using them in future moves, thank you!

Response from BigSteelBox

Thanks for the review Rick! We're sorry there was a bit of an issue with your delivery, we're glad you still had a great moving experience with us.

Have used BIG STEEL BOX for two long distance moves

Excellent way to move any size of "move". We have moved twice with Big Steel Box. ONT to BC and BC to ONT. Flawless system. It's the only way to move!

Short term storage at our location

We had a few projects going on at our house and required a storage solution which Big Steel Box was able to solve by providing us with a 10' x 10' box. The cost was comparable to off site storage but that meant the supplies were not readily available for renovation purposes. We were able to have the unit on a month to month basis until the box was no longer required. Great service and would definitely use again.

Response from BigSteelBox

Great to hear Liz! Thanks for trusting us to keep your stuff safe during your home reno.

Highly Recommended

We have just gone through 10 and half months of dealing with a builder that delayed, delayed and delayed our new home. Unable to find storage units for our furnishings we took a chance and went with Big Steel Box. We made a great decision! I truly mean that. From the moment we dealt with them, everything went perfect! From the moment we booked our contact with a gentleman I can't recall his name, to Janelle and Matty, and Bear, everything was professional and with the best customer service ever! We can't thank them enough.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you for the great review, and for trusting us to keep your things safely stored while you waited to get into your new home!

Excellent Service and Support

This is the first time we have used Big Steel Box and they were wonderful. We started out with the Port Coquitlam office. We arranged for three boxes to load our house hold items into them. The staff there were great; very accommodating; and very friendly and professional. Originally I had arranged for two 20' boxes but on moving day it became evident that I was going to need a third and the staff arranged for it immediately. They kept everything safe and in storage at their facility until after we were ready to send the boxes to Abbotsford. Once the boxes were in the Abbotsford location, they too kept them everything in storage and safe. After we bought in Chilliwack they had two of my boxes delivered right to our new home placed in the driveway side by side. After opening the two boxes we found our contents to still be in place almost the same as when loaded with minimal damage. I think there were only one or two items that experienced minor damage however, I don't think it had anything to do with there handling; but more so the way we had stored the items in the boxes. Once emptied Big Steel Box picked up them up on the day we had arranged. Overall they were prompt; professional; courtesy and friendly at all times and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing to move their house hold items. In fact my daughter has just sold her house and is moving to Chilliwack to be closer to us and I have just arranged to use one of their boxes again to store he house hold items in until such time as she finds a place to purchase. Thanks Big Steel Box. We look forward to working with you again.

Great moving/storage option!

Service was great, storage boxes are large and secure. My only negative comment is that the storage yard is not open on weekends. My circumstances changed after boxes were loaded and stored, and I didn't have a place to have the box brought to me. I had trouble finding family or friends that were available during the week to help me unload the box. Otherwise, big box storage is an excellent option!

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi Diane. Thanks for the review and feedback. We'll pass it along to our team.

Immediate Storage

We had an immediate storage need and Big Steel Box met the need. We initially got a 40 ft storage container which was great. But then we had to move it. You can not move a 40 ft full, so we had to transfer it to another container, we went to a 20 ft, just incase it had to be moved again. Justin was great. The company delivering it is accommodating but you need to be there to ensure it is where you want it.

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi Melody. Thanks for the review. We're glad we were able to work with you to find a storage option that worked for your need.

It may just be a box

It may just be a box, anyone can give you a box but it is about the service. From the quotation, then the delivery, the monthly billing and the removal, No issues, everyone was kind, helpful and accommodating . I missed the cancellation of my contract by a couple of days, legally BSB had the right to charge me for a month but they said they would not. I would use their service again.

Hi Glenn. Thanks so much for sharing your BigSteelBox experience!

In between homes

We sold our mobile home, and replaced it with a brand new one. During the transition time of a few weeks, we used a BSB to store our home full of belongings. It was extremely convenient moving out the door and a mere 30 metres away. Once our new home was ready we were able to take our time and move into our new home gradually.
The whole process was much less labour intensive than an off site rental unit!
Thank you BSB for being there for us!

Response from BigSteelBox

Thanks for trusting us to keep your things safe during the transition to your new home Kelly!

Great company to deal with

Outstanding Service

We cannot say enough great things about how wonderful Janelle and Bear were throughout our experience! When we called in, all the right questions were asked to ensure our move day went seamlessly. The can was dropped off during the first drop off of the day and picked up last to provide us as much time as possible to pack up. It arrived at our new home with belongings in perfect condition. If you are looking for a great, knowledgeable, and friendly company to do business with, this is it! Thank you!

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you for choosing BigSteelBox! We're so glad to hear your move went well.

Never again and will not recomend

Several years ago I used Big Steel Box in Chilliwack because they advertised a secured storage site. Not even close! My storage container was broken into and items were stolen. No one could be reached for several hours. When the owner finally called he had zero solution for the situation and he didn't even have a process for trying to resolve it! He was out of town & could not be reached! Security could not be reached! I had to leave the box open while I went to get another lock that had been cut becuse the box had been left on the ground instead of put up and door to door so no one could get in. The owner was an absolute idiot! I'm sorry but I can't state that any other way. I will never recomend this company and will steer everyone away from it!

Response from BigSteelBox

Thanks Gerald; We're sorry to hear your experience was less than satisfactory. As you mentioned, this happened several years ago, and our Chilliwack location has since been closed. Over those years, we have made many improvements to the security at our yards, and all of our new BigSteelBoxes come with lock boxes that protect pad locks from bolt cutters. Regards, The BigSteelBox Team
