Comparing New & Used Shipping Containers For Sale
New BigSteelBoxes are “one-trip” containers, received directly from our manufacturing plant in China. They’re white, have waist-height door handles, and Lock Boxes welded to the doors.
Used containers come in 3 different grades (low, mid, or high), may have some rust, dents, and come in different colours. Lock Boxes can be purchased and installed prior to delivery. We encourage customers to visit a BigSteelBox store before making a decision.
About our portable storage containers.
Our storage containers are built for the Canadian climate. They’re weather and rodent-proof, so your things will be safe and secure year-round.
We rent portable storage containers in a variety of sizes: 8′, 10′, 20′ and 40′. The contents of a typically furnished 2-4 bedroom home will usually fit into a 20′ BigSteelBox.
Our new rental containers come equipped with a Lock Box. This heavy steel shield surrounds your padlock and protects it from bolt-cutters.
BigSteelBoxes have rubber gaskets along both sides of the doors, which creates a tight seal. This keeps mice and rats out.
BigSteelBoxes come equipped with vents to promote airflow and prevent mold or mildew, however, that’s not enough ventilation to safely store flammable materials, such as gas, solvents, and other chemicals.
Maximize your storage space and keep it organized by using the D-rings located every 4′ in your BigSteelBox. We rent and sell shelf brackets, you just need to add 2″x10″ pieces of lumber.
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.
