Located at 5495 Hartway Drive (about 5km north of the city just off Hwy #97), our BigSteelBox store in Prince George has been providing moving services and portable storage containers to the Cariboo region for several years. If you’re looking to rent or buy a shipping container, we have a wide selection of new and used BigSteelBoxes to choose from.
If you're moving, we’ll bring the moving container to you, so you don’t need to rent a truck or hire expensive movers. We’ll bring you a BigSteelBox, you pack it at you pace, then we’ll move it to your new home move it or store it at our storage facility.
We offer door-to-door delivery of portable storage containers in a variety of sizes. Our BigSteelBoxes are wind, water and rodent-proof, and made of 8-gauge steel so they’re extremely strong and secure.
Residential Storage - Keep Your Container at Your Place or Ours
10' BigSteelBox Storage at Your Place (excluding freight)
For residential moving and storage, the most common sizes used are our 10' and 20' BigSteelBoxes. We may also have 8' containers at the Prince George store, please call to check availability.
If space to place the BigSteelBox is limited or you need less storage space, a 10' container is ideal. You can fit the contents of most 1-bedroom homes or apartments in a 10' Box.
Our 20' shipping containers are the most common size we rent and sell. The contents of most 2 - 4 bedroom homes or condos will fit into a 20' storage container. You can keep your Box at your location or load it up and have it stored at our secure yard for a small additional charge.
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.

I love our long daylight hours in the summer in Prince George, and having many lakes so close by. I feel fortunate to be able to spend my evenings with my dogs out kayaking at the lake. I really appreciate the people I work with at BigSteelBox. The team work and passion across the company is incredible!
Joe Benwell, Placement Technician
Most of my family lives in Prince George, so it's great to live and work in a place where family is close by. I really enjoy working for BigSteelBox because the people I get to work with are genuine and have integrity, and the company puts ethics before profit.
