The most common sizes used for residential moving and storage are our 10’ and 20’ BigSteelBoxes. We may also have 8’ Boxes at the Nanaimo store, please call to check availability.

A 10’ BigSteelBox is ideal if space to place the Box is limited or you need less storage space. You can fit the contents of most 1-bedroom homes or apartments in a 10' Box.

Our 20’ BigSteelBoxes are the most common size we rent and sell. The contents of most 2-3 bedroom homes or condos will fit into a 20' storage container. You can keep your BigSteelBox at your location or load it up and have it stored at our secure yard for a small additional charge.
