With locations across Canada, backed by a Canadian call centre, we can help make your local or long distance moving experience feel seamless.

When you move with a BigSteelBox moving container you’ll enjoy predictable pricing, extra time and flexibility, and the built-in option of secure storage in between homes.

PACK AT YOUR OWN PACE

Our moving service allows you to take your time packing. Your BigSteelBox rents by the month so you can take 4 days or 4 weeks all for the same price!

BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR MOVE

Because you can load your BigSteelBox yourself, you’ll rest easy knowing your things have been packed and handled with care, and you keep the key.

SECURITY YOU CAN TRUST

Our moving containers are weather and rodent-proof. They also come equipped with a steel lock box that protects your padlock from bolt cutters.

FLEXIBLE DELIVERY & PICK UP

We’ll deliver and pick up your BigSteelBox on your schedule. If you need it longer, or if you need storage in between homes, that’s no problem!

Our moving containers are built for the Canadian climate. They’re weather and rodent-proof, so your things will be safe and secure year-round.

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 just moved from North Dundas to Petawawa using Big Steel Box and we were extremely pleased with all aspects of their service. From the initial quote, to the drop off, transfer, and delivery, everything went flawlessly. They arrived exactly when they said they would with a 20' clean, secure container that had room for our entire house. It was level and placed exactly where we wanted it. We took our time - two weeks - to load up the box and packed it right to the ceiling, which is 8'6". We used ratchet straps to secure each of four major segments. It helps to have a large item like a mattress to hold everything in place. They picked up the box on time and delivered it exactly when they said they would, and everything inside was in perfect condition. I would highly recommend Big Steel Box to anyone who has their own manpower to pack and load. Thanks for such a reliable, low-stress transaction. I'd give them six stars if I could.

We had to move twice and needed to put all our items in a container. Couldn’t find a 20’ container anywhere until we contacted Big Steel Box. We made several changes with them including adding a second container to be stored at our new property. Their customer service was incredible. Very responsive and accommodating to all our needs. Highly recommend.
