Door-to-door delivery of portable storage containers in a variety of sizes can usually be made to Sidney and Victoria customers in under 24 hours. The most common sizes used for residential storage are our 10' and 20' BigSteelBoxes. If you need a smaller container, we may also have 8' Boxes at the Victoria store, please call to check availability.

You can keep your storage container rental on your property for as long as you need it, or have it moved and stored at our secure location at 6647 Butler Crescent, Saanichton.

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 $29/mo for a 10' or $59/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.

Bad initial impression

Myles in the Vancouver office did a moving and storage quote for us. We we're happy with it and arranged to travel from Nanaimo to their Victoria office the next day to prepay the entire cost the move. When we arrived at the Victoria office we met with Kyle, who did nothing at all to assist us with paying for our move as arranged and was obviously completely out of ideas as to offer customer service. Worst initial impression of a business I have ever experienced on Vancouver Island and I have had my own business there for over thirty years. I sincerely hope the rest of our experience with this company is better than our initial impression!

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi Allan. We’re very sorry you experienced a miscommunication over our accepted methods of payment. Across our company, we only accept Visa, Visa Debit, Mastercard for container rentals and moving services, so there was nothing that Kyle could have done over and above the solution he was able to work out with you and your wife. We are looking into the possibility that this was not clearly communicated to you at some point to ensure that it does not occur again. Again, we’re very sorry for the initial challenges you encountered, and we appreciate you choosing BigSteelBox to carry out your long distance move.

Thank You

I wish to thank Big Steel Box for excellent customer service and excellent product. I rented a BSB for 2 years to store precious estate items, the ease of having a moving company cross load material into my BSB and then deliver it full to my property was a real cost saving and a worry free move during a life crisis of a friends death. I can't thank the Team at BSB enough.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you for sharing your experience, Denis. We're very sorry for your loss. Thank you for trusting us with your storage needs. We're glad to hear it helped make the situation a little easier for you.

No Problems

Everything was easy and orderly in the billing and administrative end but it was the delivery of the box that amazed me. Even though I had difficult terrain, the driver was amazingly creative and and knowledgable in finding a way to park the container.

House Renovations

We were thoroughly satisfied with Big Steel Box. We were doing a major reno in our house, new floors, interior doors, windows, so everything was in the container on our driveway. The men that delivered the box were professional and courteous. The box was spotlessly clean. The company was easy to deal with, and the pick up of the box went smoothly. We are totally recommending Big Steel Box.

Response from BigSteelBox

Great to hear Andrew! Thanks for trusting us to keep your stuff safe during your home renovation.

Renovations made easy

We rented from BigSteelBox while we were doing a big reno. The rental process was easy, operator was knowledgeable as to the size we required, unit was dropped off and we were able to put our belongings in the unit knowing they were safe and out of the way, which made the renovation go smoothly. The unit was spotlessly clean and the pickup was equally smooth. Highly recommend this company.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thanks Andrew, great to hear your reno went well!

Fantastic help during our move

I can't say how much help the Big Steel Box was when we put our house on the market to sell The Box arrive when said it was to be there, we loaded it at our pace. They picked it up when we wanted it to go to their storage yard. Then a few days after we moved you brought it to our new house. We unloaded it again at our pace,again it was picked up when we wanted it gone. The guy that delivered it was just great ,friendly and a very good driver. Thanks again it sure was a great service to us John

Awesome and Prompt Service

I was very impressed with the prompt service I have received. From the first call to having my container delivered everything was very quick. Same day site visit. They even accommodated our move to the new location a day earlier and made my home buyers very happy. Thank you for going above and beyond to help us out. I will certainly recommend you in the first instance.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thanks Angie! We appreciate you taking the time to share your moving experience.

Amazing customer service!

Ben and Kyle were outstanding at making sure everything was organized for pickups and deliveries. Very accommodating for me in accessing my Box as well.
The Box itself was in great shape, clean and dry. It withstood our terrible winter weather and 6 months later all my stuff was just as it was left.
I have nothing but amazing things to say for the company and its staff.
Thank you to you all!!!

Thanks for the great review Rebekah!

Good move

We moved from Grande Prairie to Victoria which was a little problematic as there is no GP location. A box had to come from Edmonton. That said, service was great box came when it was supposed to, a minor problem when the first truck to pick it up had some issues but second truck picked up later that day. Load got here fine. The delivery driver was very cautious re placement of loaded box--did not want to damage curbs or other surrounding landscape. Only one minor item damaged in the box and that was due to our loading. And THE PRICE WAS THE PRICE!!!
Empty box pick was on time.

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi Pat. We're so glad to hear your long distance move from Grand Prairie to Victoria went well! Thanks for choosing BigSteelBox : )
