Sizes

We rent moving containers in a variety of sizes: 8’, 10’ and 20’. The contents of a typically furnished 2 – 4 bedroom home will usually fit into a 20’ BigSteelBox.

Security

Our new rental containers come equipped with a Lock Box. This heavy steel shield surrounds your padlock and protects it from bolt-cutters.

Rodents

BigSteelBoxes have rubber gaskets along both sides of the doors, which creates a tight seal. This keeps mice and rats out.

10,000 lbs. Weight Capacity

A 20′ BigSteelBox can hold up to 10,000 lbs. That’s more than double the weight capacity of most 16′ moving containers!

Tie Down Hooks

D-ring hooks are located every 4ft. along the top and bottom edges of the inside of the container to make it easy to secure your load for transport.

We used Big Steel Box to move from Ontario to British Columbia. We also needed to store our belongings for 2-3 months between houses. This was the perfect solution for us and we found BSB to be professional and responsive. We knew exactly how much it would cost versus using a mover who couldn't narrow down a price until it was packed. When it comes to loading the container, I would recommend having a professional to help pack the container so very little moves while in transit. We packed our own boxes and also purchased moving blankets and ratchet tie-down straps to help secure our things, but it's all the odd shaped furniture that requires some finesse. Everything happened when they said it would and the drivers were all courteous. I would highly recommend Big Steel Box for moving and storage solutions.

The unit was delivered and picked up on the designated day and time. Was very impressed with the ventilation system of these units especially during the long cold wet winter rainy season. Not one item was damp, and my belongings were in excellent shape after spending one year in this unit. I would definitely recommend using a Big Steel Box for your storage needs.

My experience has been great! Right from the initial call to inquire I was connected with Clay who was very informative and asked all the right questions to ensure I was getting the right solution. The delivery was a snap and very professional and now I have temporary storage that is very convenience and costs much less than renting a storage locker at a property that would normally be 15 minutes away. BUT you have to have the room at your property for the unit.
