Port Coquitlam's BigSteelBox store, located at 880 Lougheed Hwy (less than a kilometre northwest of the Mary Hill Bypass), has been providing moving services and portable storage unit rentals to the Lower Mainland since 2008. In addition to being one of our largest locations, it’s also the distribution centre for our inventory of new shipping containers arriving from the factory in China.

BigSteelBox has more locations across Canada than any other mobile storage company, so whether you're moving across the city, the province or the country, we can help. There's no need to rent a truck or hire professional movers. We’ll deliver your BigSteelBox, and you pack it at your pace. When you’re ready, we’ll pick up your moving container and move it to your new home.

We offer competitive rates on portable storage solutions for construction and commercial customers, and because we have two of our own delivery trucks, we can get you the storage containers you need quickly and efficiently.

Need a permanent storage solution? We also offer new and used shipping containers for sale.

Compared to renting a storage locker, our BigSteelBox portable storage units are more convenient and cost-effective. We bring the storage to you, so you don’t have to load a truck, drive it to a storage locker or self-storage facility, unload it, and then do that all over again when you need your things again. BigSteelBox saves you time, energy and money.

The most common size containers used for residential storage and moving are 10' and 20'. We may also have 8' Boxes at the Port Coquitlam store, please call to check availability.

A 10' BigSteelBox is ideal if space to place the storage container is limited, such as at townhome communities and apartment buildings in densely populated areas like Vancouver and other areas of the Lower Mainland. You can fit the contents of most 1-bedroom homes and apartments in a 10' Box. If you need more space, our 20' storage containers will hold the contents of most 2 - 4 bedroom homes or condos.

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.

Dan Oldfield, Store Manager
I love living in the Lower Mainland because I'm close to the ocean, snow capped mountains, and I enjoy wandering around downtown Vancouver. It also has great sushi, breweries and an amazing music scene. Working for BigSteelBox is awesome because everyone is so friendly and the culture of the company is great. I really enjoy being part of the BigSteelBox Family! 


Brooke McKay, Storage Consultant
The best part of living in the Lower Mainland would have to be the mild winters and the fantastic summer weather! I like working at BigSteelBox because of the core values they promote and how everyone is committed to achieving world-class customer service!

John Kuit, Yard Supervisor
I enjoy the diversity of activities in the Vancouver area. You can skate, ski, and surf all in the same day! I really love the people I get to work with at BigSteelBox, it’s a joy to come to work every day.

Gerald Jo, Yard Technician
I love the weather and the diversity the lower mainland offers. I really enjoy being part of the BigSteelBox team in Port Coquitlam. The people are great!

Tom Cranidge, Placement Technician
I love the Lower Mainland for all the activities it has to offer. You’ll often catch me rollerblading the Seawall, hiking the Chief, or kayaking in the many rivers throughout the region. My favourite thing about working for BigSteelBox is getting to interact with customers each day.

Orlando Bosa, Placement Technician
Living in the lower mainland allows me to be close to nature, mountains and forests, which I love. There are so many places to explore! One aspect of my job that I enjoy is when a customer is happy and appreciates the service we have provided them. The team at BigSteelBox are kind and considerate.

pricing correction

There was an issue or misunderstanding of the previous pricing i received. This was corrected quickly and there was also a small further reduction in price to boot.

Hassle-Free, Stress-Free Move

We used BigSteelBox this summer for our move from Metro Vancouver to Salmon Arm. From the point of initial contact for a quote until they picked up the empty container after the move, it was a hassle-free, stress-free moving experience! We used one 20ft box for our 1500 sq ft home and it was just enough space. We had a two week gap between moving out and getting possession of our new home, which worked out perfectly with BigSteelBox's delivery timeline (takes about 2 weeks anyways). The ONLY hiccup was the loaded box was supposed to be picked up at 8am - and we got a call from the driver at 6:45am that he was on our driveway to pick it up. But that was the ONLY hiccup. Nothing broke inside the box. Despite torrential downpours throughout the week it was on our driveway, there were no leaks. Very secure and solid container. We will definitely be using BigSteelBox if we ever move again.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you so much for sharing your moving experience, Larissa! We're very glad to know it went well.

Excellent Service

Moving from one province to another is stressful enough but receiving exceptional customer service every time I called helped minimize it. The staff at the Port Coquitlam office was great over the phone and in person. I'd definitely rent from Big Steel Box again!

Professional, Reliable, Secure and Accessible

Big Steel Box dropped off container to my house for convenience of packing things slowly over a months time. They store our container for 7 months on their property. (longer than I had anticipated) But it was convenient and problem free to arrange times that I could access my belongings. note: just make sure you pack what you might need access to last. I needed winter tires because I did not know how long I would require their storage. Employees were very friendly and able to explain the moving process clearly. Extra kudos to the man who dropped off my container to my new condo. I had applied and paid for a street parking permit to leave the container in front of my building and assumed the city would put a no parking sign on the road for us reserving the dates. They did not. The driver waited for parked cars to leave so he could drop the box for us. Kudos for the driver who picked up our empty container from our condo. I put their rental lock on the container but kept the keys in my possession. He called me when he arrived to get the keys because he didn't want me to get charged for having to break open the lock. I wasn't near my condo so I dropped off the keys to their office the next day. I would recommend this company.

Exemplary Customer Service

The people of Big Steel Box should teach other customer service providers how it's done. From booking with Ky, having Tom pick up our box in Port Coquitlam and having to reschedule the drop off with Amanda- I didn't have so much as a hiccup. Drop off, and dealing with the Penticton location had also been a pleasure.

You guys rock!

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you Laura! We're really glad your move from Port Coquitlam to Penticton went well - thanks for choosing BigSteelBox!

Would have been 4 1/2 stars if it wasn't for the dissatisfying conclusion.

The concept and the overall service is good. Moving across the country this way can greatly reduce your stress. Being able to load it at your leisure and then unload it at your leisure is, from our opinion, worth it. Big Steel Box used a local contractor to drop it off at our new location. The driver was not as conscientious as the Big Steel Box driver who dropped it off at the origin. At the origin the driver used wooden blocks under the trailer to minimize damage to the driveway. At the new location the contractor driver did not which resulted in significant damage to the driveway. This is where the 3 stars comes in. This was clearly an opportunity for Big Steel Box to really delight a customer and pay for or partially pay for the driveway damage. But the answer that was given that the damage "would have occurred anyways" just insinuates that you think we're stupid. After paying over $10k I would imagined they would be interested in the good word-of-mouth that would come from helping cover at least part of the $500 to fix the damage. That aside, a very good service.

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi Mr. Bourne. As per our recent phone conversation, we’re sorry the delivery of your Box did not go exactly as expected. We’re glad we were able to work with you to rectify this situation and come to an agreement that is satisfactory for you and your family. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and for choosing BigSteelBox for your long distance move.

Convenient & Friendly Service

Big Steel Box was a great way to store our belongings. This is a better way to store items that you don't need access to, much better than a storage unit. Arrangements for drop off and picking up were easily arranged and the staff is very friendly! Thanks!

Hi Kim. Thanks for taking the time to give leave a review, and for choosing BigSteelBox for your storage needs!

Great Service

We recently used Big Steel Box while we decluttered our home prior to placing it on the market for sale and stored our box until we moved into our new home and set a delivery date.
Charlie was terrific to deal with. He gave us quotes for all the options available and had the drivers come to deliver and pick up the box on the dates and times specified. They even ensured that the doors to the box were pointed the way we wanted when the box was delivered for ease of access. The drivers were excellent, extremely careful,and very professional. They always called ahead of time to let us know they were on their way and asked if we had any special instructions.
We were billed exactly what we were quoted and were very happy with the overall experience.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you for sharing your moving and storage experience, Clare! And thanks for choosing BigSteelBox : )

Great customer service

Very good customer service from Charlie and the staff at Port Coquitlam who organized pick up and drop off. The bin was clean when it arrived and the entire contents of our home was all in tact when the bin was dropped off. Very profession service. Thank you.

Thanks for the nice review Nancy! We're glad to hear your move went well.

I had fantastic service from David Haas and his team! Everything was quick and convenient. All communication was email or phone and David even assisted with getting city approval for parking on the street. Tom, the driver was phenominal as well. Felt like they all really cared about us, their customers. I would recommend this company and have already done so with friends and co-workers.

Response from BigSteelBox

So glad you had a great experience Sue, thanks for choosing BigSteelBox!

Brilliant service

We moved from a 3 bedroom house to a sublet furnished apartment for 10 months. We put all of our furniture, art work and other belongings in a Big Steel Box and shipped it to Port Coquitlam. We were always worried what state it would be in when we opened it 10 months later, but we were so happy to find everything in perfect shape. I would highly recommend and trust Big Steel Box. Their delivery and pick up and pick up and delivery was prompt and on time. Great job guys!!!!

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi John. Thank you for sharing your BigSteelBox experience, and for trusting us with your belongings!

Absolutely the best moving experience

From start to finish all BSB gave us was hassle-free quality service. We started out with another box company when we began the process of preparing our house for sale but it soon became obvious our plan of transferring our belongings to a truck for the relocation in a city on the island was physically unpractible . We then went with BSB for the choice of having all our belongings on our front yard during renovations at the new place for a couple of months which turned into almost a year . Everybody from the company we had interactions with were positive and innovative with ideas to make the undertaking as easy as possible for us. And, at the end of it all , there was no billing hassle as sometimes happens with credit card billing . Just the best experience I have had in a long time with a service oriented company. Thank you Big Steel Box Company , you were the easiest part of our retirement

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you so much for the great review Gail. We're so glad we could help make your move and renovation easier. Congratulations on your retirement!!
