Thanks to BigSteelBox, we're able to safely store the donations we receive.

“At Mamas for Mamas, we work hard to make sure our families are taken care of and we could not to this with the help of our community. Thanks to BigSteelBox, we are able to store necessary donations that we receive such as diapers, clothing and car seats, then redistribute them to families that need them the most.

We could never do what we do without the help of our community and are extremely grateful to have partners such as BigSteelBox to ensure that no mama, or family is ever left behind.”

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.
