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.

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.

We can also move you almost anywhere in western Canada! Learn more about our long distance moving service.

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 portable 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.

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.

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.

Highly Recommended Service

I have rented two 20' containers now for storage while I complete renovations. Everything runs smoothly from the phone ordering, electronic signing of the agreement, deliver on time, and receiving a clean and high quality container. BigSteelBox has met and exceeded my expectations.

Response from BigSteelBox

This is great to hear, thanks for the great review Brian!

Highly recommended for epic moves

I do not write reviews so this is a first.
My husband, myself and our two cats moved from a farm in Ontario to Vancouver Island. It took 2 X 20 foot boxes, a heart attack and a stroke some surgery etc. (you get the point) until we could finally get here and I could sit back in my rocking chair and write this review.
To Ryan, who coordinated these final deliveries, and Deb in Kitchener who tracked the drivers and got both Boxes shipped out and to us…. you are the best!
But Kieran de Rooy will always have my heartfelt gratitude.
You went beyond the job and made me believe that there was still chivalry left in the world and talked me through this epic journey.
You are quite simply the best of a brilliant team

Response from BigSteelBox

Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your moving experience Cate. We are so happy to know things went well and that you, your husband and your cats are now settled into your new home! The entire BigSteelBox teams wishes you health and happiness in your new life on Vancouver Island :-)

Amazing customer service!

We had an amazing experience dealing with the BigSteelBox company, mostly due to our consultant, Debbie Lipani. She did everything possible to assist us with the move. She provided us with lots of important information; was flexible when we needed to change the dates; was always quick to return an e-mail - all in all, her support was consistent and genuine. Our family is very grateful to her.

Not Pleased

Friday before labor Day Weekend and they dropped off the wrong bin! No way to get them to fix it until Tuesday! NO emergency number or workers on call what so ever! Expected to get a call from a manager this morning, but instead got a call from an employee who was literally laughing about it! Far from funny considering I had to pay the movers for an hour for their time with nothing to move, purchase toothbrushes, shampoo, blankets, pillows and all other necessities to get through until Tuesday, including more back to school supplies as EVERYTHING was in that bin! After spending the weekend sleeping on the floor with my 3 children I am less than impressed! Was told it will be fixed today but NO compensation offered so far!
Will update when I hopefully hear from the manager!

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi Kristy. We’d like to reiterate the sincere apology that our Store Manager expressed during your phone call with him today. We’re very sorry that you and your family were inconvenienced over the weekend. There was a mix-up at our yard when reading the container ID numbers and the incorrect container was sent to you, which is an error we take very seriously. We have already reviewed the procedures that happened on the day of your delivery to ensure it doesn’t happen again. As discussed, a refund will be issued to your credit card for the amount you’ve paid to date. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Personalized touch

I was extremely pleased with driver Rick’s communication regarding our delivery. He left me several voicemails every step along the way and was able to place to box as close to where I wanted it give the fact there were low hanging branches. I thought they would not be an issue but they were.
I spoke to Rick personally on delivery day and thanked him but if there is a way to formally recognize him I would like to do that.
If you could pass this message along to anyone who you think would benefit, I am fine with that.

Thanks again for the quick and easy online signing option and the excellent response times from Martin at each stage along the way.

Overall a very easy process and wonderful experience.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you for the nice review Chris! We will make sure that Rick, Martin and the rest of our team hears your comments. We're so glad you had a good experience.

Highly recommend

We moved from Ontario to BC using the Big Steel Box.
Great service, knowledgeable and very helpful at both ends!
We expected 21 days for the container to arrive at our destination but were surprised when we received the call that it arrived within a week to our destination, BC.
Great job, Big steel Box, highly recommend!
Also, the Big Steel Box website is very informative for packing your container!

Response from BigSteelBox

Thank you for sharing your experience Diane! We're very glad to know your long distance move went well.

Problem Solved

Thank you Kieran and the BigSteelBox team for solving my issues so promptly. Everyone was helpful and the box was delivered before I got home from work. I am very pleased with the customer care and look forward to a trouble-free move.

No follow-up

I requested and received a quote in a timely manner and when I started to enter into the process of renting the box I got no response. The paperwork was supposed to come last Friday and the box the following Tuesday or Wednesday - it is now Thursday and no response to my emails, no paperwork and no moving box.

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi Candice. Again, we’re very sorry there was a delay in our response to you. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We’re glad we were able to speak with you and get your Box delivered the same day. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Using Big Steel Box for our move from Mississauga Ontario to Sidney BC gave us the flexibility of loading and unloading at our own pace with the certainty of a fixed price. Very satisfied with all aspects of this move.

Box rental

We rented a Big Steel Box in Sept. 2016 and when filled had it stored at your premises. In every respect our experience was first rate. The box was very well constructed and sealed and after being stored for 9 months everything in it was as clean and dust-free as the day it was loaded.
Your delivery driver, Bob, was efficient and courteous, and you must be sorry to have seen him move away from the area.
We highly recommend your services to anyone needing storage of their possessions, and have spread the word to many people.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thanks for the great review, Ken, and for trusting us to keep your things safe.

beautiful, clean storage unit

For 3 months we had a beautiful, clean storage BSB unit in our driveway storing some of our furniture during a major renovation.
Some of the neighbours asked about the company and one neighbour rented a unit.
Everyone at BSB was very thoughtful and pleasant. The delivery man ensured that the unit did not damage our driveway even though it is in bad condition already.

Response from BigSteelBox

Hi John. We're so glad to hear your home reno went well. Glad we could help!

Acceptional Customer Service

I was very pleased with the service from the manager at the White City, SK location but more so with the service at the Kitchener, Ontario end. Once the issues were resolved in Regina, the transportation of our belongings was very quick. I believe I spoke with Keenan at HO, he was so sympathetic to our issues & did what was in his control to help. Bouquet to Bob the driver. What a pleasant fellow and prompt. BB served our needs.

Response from BigSteelBox

Thanks for the review! We'll be sure to pass on your comments to the team.
