Moving & Storage for Local Moves in Canada
Mobile storage containers are perfect for your pre and post move needs.
When you move with a BigSteelBox you don’t have to worry about coordinating and accommodating the schedule of a moving company. We allow you to be in control of your move. Most of our customers are choosing to move with us for the following reasons.
When you use a traditional moving company or you rent a truck, you have to cram all the drama of moving into one very stressful day. With BigSteelBox, we deliver your Box as far in advance as you like so you can fill it at your own pace. You can take a week or a month - it’s entirely up to you. When it’s ready to go, we come and pick it up. We can move it right away, or store it at one of our secure locations until your new home is ready.
With movers, you will pay extra for the "moving experts" that come along with the truck. For local area moving, most moving companies will charge an hourly rate based on the size of the truck and the number of men on the crew. In addition to the hourly rate, most companies will also have a materials fee and a fuel surcharge. The materials fee is usually a percentage of the overall cost, but doesn't include larger items like mattress bags or any additional boxes they may need. It's easy to see how those things can add up.
With BigSteelBox, there is a great deal more cost certainty. The costs are based on the monthly box rental rate and the transport, which are far easier to estimate. So, as long as you don't need an extra Box or storage in between homes you'll pay exactly what is on your quote.
The costs of moving with BigSteelBox are comparable to renting a truck and doing it yourself. While renting a truck may see like the best bargain, it also comes with the most amount of stress. Not only does everything all need to be done in one day, but you have to do all the driving. And don't forget to factor in the extra costs for gas!
Storage in between homes
When buying and selling a home, it can be a challenge to line up the possession dates to accommodate a move directly to your new home. If you use BigSteelBox, we'll store the box at one of our secure locations until you're ready for it, so there is no need to load and unload your stuff into a storage facility. This is especially beneficial for long distance, city to city moves.
Most of our Mobile Storage competitors who offer a residential service, use smaller lighter weight containers. For example, a 20' BigSteelBox has over 44% more cubic space compared to a 16' PODS container, and it has over two times the weight capacity (10,000lbs vs 4,200). If your home is more than 2 bedrooms and 1500 square feet, chances are you're not going to be able to fit all of your belongings into a 16' PODS container.
BigSteelBoxes are ISO certified, meaning they’re ship worthy, durable and secure. It’s also important to us that a BigSteelBox is clean and in good condition when you receive it, so we make sure that each Box is cleaned before delivery.
We pride ourselves on providing high quality products and responsive, accountable and knowledgeable customer service. We welcome special requests and will work hard to exceed your expectations. We can also make your long distance move to a new city much easier than using a traditional moving company or service.
