Residential Storage - Keep Your Container at Your Place or Ours
10' BigSteelBox Storage at Your Place (excluding freight)
The most common sizes of storage containers used by residential customers in Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding areas are our 10’ and 20’ BigSteelBoxes. We may also have 8’ containers at the Kitchener store, please call to check availability.
Store your BigSteelBox portable storage unit at your property for as long as you need it, or pack it and have it stored at our secure storage yard at 2564 Cedar Creek Road in Ayr, 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.
Local Moving Service in Kitchener & Waterloo
1-Month Move Store at Your Place Direct House-to-House Move
The 1-Month Local Move price above includes the initial drop off of a 20’ BigSteelBox, one loaded move directly to your new home, pick up of the empty container and one month’s rent. If you need more time to pack or unpack, no problem, just add $149/month for each additional month you need it.
Our local move pricing applies to moves within the city limits of Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Woodstock, Stratford, and Brantford, Ontario. Storage at our secure yard in-between homes is subject to an extra loaded move charge, as our truck needs to make one additional trip back to our yard.
Commercial & Construction Storage in Kitchener & Waterloo
In addition to commercial storage and construction job site storage, BigSteelBox provides mobile storage for a wide range of business types, including the manufacturing industry, such as Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Inc. in Kitchener, as well as aerospace and the real estate companies throughout the area. Our steel storage container rentals are also frequently used by restoration companies, plus we offer new and used shipping containers sales in Kitchener and surrounding area.
BigSteelBoxes are a great solution for retailers who need to expand their warehouse for excess inventory or seasonal demands. Large stores, such as Value Village locations in Waterloo and Kitchener, find it useful to have BigSteelBoxes outside their stores year-round. But, because we can place a BigSteelBox just about anywhere, even smaller spaces like parking lots or tight spots next to a building, we can make it work.
We also provide secure mobile storage to local schools and institutions, including the Waterloo Region Police Service, Waterloo Regional District School boards, and Waterloo Region Catholic District School board. Learn more about the security features of a BigSteelBox.

Eduardo Martinez, Store Manager
When the opportunity to move to Kitchener and manage this Store came up I had to take it. Kitchener is a city full of life, with great hockey tradition, great universities and an amazing outdoor lifestyle. Kitchener-Waterloo is passionate about their Rangers, and being a big hockey fan, I am very excited to become a Rangers fan myself!
I look forward to using my years of experience working for BigSteelBox to provide exceptional customer service to all my Ontario customers.
Debbie Lipani, Storage Consultant
I currently live in Cambridge, Ontario. What I love most about the Waterloo region is the friendliness of the people. My family moved to the area 14 years ago and we just love it here.
I enjoy working for BigSteelBox mostly because of our culture - we care for one another like family. I enjoy helping people with their moving needs because it can be a very stressful time for many people, and with over 10 years experience in the moving and storage industry, I enjoying finding ways to make moving easier for my customers.
