What We Offer

BigSteelBox Housing

Big Steel Housing

We are using four 40’ boxes in the first home we are building at our Abbotsford store. Yes, we are building a house out of BigSteelBoxes. Cutting construction costs by as much as 50% is the primary benefit for using BigSteelBoxes in housing, but they are also much stronger and more structurally sound than anything you would normally build with.

Creating temporary housing for work camps is one of the most obvious uses for BigSteelBox housing. Homes created from BigSteelBoxes are much more secure and durable than traditional camp style housing made from trailers, and there are many custom options available.

While they are meant to be temporary and mobile, they can also feel much more permanent than a typical camp. So, for sites where housing will remain for a significant period, housing made from BigSteelBoxes can feel more like home to the work force.

In addition, what started primarily as a way to build affordable housing, is now looked at as an environmentally sound alternative to using other materials.

If you’re interested in learning more about this style of housing, please contact us or check our Blog which will include housing posts in the near future.

BigSteelBox Offices

Office Containers

One of the most popular uses for BigSteelBoxes are as offices on construction and industrial sites. We’re sure you can appreciate that a BigSteelBox is a very secure and durable option when compared to a trailer.

Some of our customers use half of their BigSteelBox as an office and the other half as site storage. It’s as simple as adding a door, a wall, a floor, a window, lighting …Okay, it’s a little bit of work, but it’s easy for us, because we do it all the time.

We’ve converted many BigSteelBoxes into offices over the years, including the ones at our own stores. So, if you’re curious to see how great an office can look, and how practical it can be, just come down to your local BigSteelBox, and check out our digs. It may just be the answer to your site office needs.

Who knows, maybe they start showing up on Wall Street.

BigSteelBox Structures - Modular Buildings & Workforce Housing BigSteelBox Structures - Modular Buildings & Workforce Housing

Building with steel shipping containers makes sense when you compare it to wood-frame construction and trailers. Not only is the foundational structure more solid, but BigSteelBoxes are the built for ocean shipping and withstanding the elements. A structure built from BigSteelBoxes will be easier to move and will last much longer than a trailer.

Construction Site Storage

Construction Site Storage

Not only can we drop off a BigSteelBox, but we’re also there to provide the on going service you need.

We’ve been supplying BigSteelBoxes to builders for years, so we understand your business. With a network of locations across BC & Alberta, we have a vast inventory of Boxes at our disposal. Whether it’s in your town or not, we can usually get the BigSteelBox you need to your site within 24 hours. And if you ever need it moved (empty or loaded), we can usually accommodate your request within 24 hours, if not sooner.

BigSteelBox - Office ModificationsCan we place it in a tight spot? We had an entire site stop working (I know you don’t want to hear that), when one of our drivers had to deliver a BigSteelBox to a downtown Vancouver building site. Bets were made. When our driver placed the box, the applause could be heard on the North Shore.

But there’s more to our service than having expert drivers. Because we’ve been working with builders for years, we’ve developed a number of accessories that makes your storage space more efficient. Shelves, hooks, and additional doors can make better use of space and provide quick access.

At the end of the day, our job is to help you do your job. Give us a call to find out how we can help.

Moving Boxes & Supplies

Moving Boxes & Moving Supplies

Okay, what can you say about supplies? Well, whenever you’re moving or storing stuff, boxes make things a whole lot more efficient. Whether they are BigSteelBoxes or cardboard boxes, they help make everything uniform. And, we have lots of cardboard boxes. And tape. And shelves and hangers… and hooks…and insight.

We can make lots of suggestions to help you make the best possible use of the space in your box. Check out our Moving Tips for some ideas.

So, when you’re moving or storing your belongings, just think of us as your moving and storage experts. Chances are, we’ve had another customer with a storage need similar to yours. If we haven’t run into your specific challenge before, it will give us a chance to demonstrate our innovative problem solving skills.

Residential Moving

Residential Moving Containers

Of course, it depends on the size of the house, and the size of the box, but it is possible to move everything from inside a house, in one BigSteelBox. (The belongings from a 2 to 3 bedroom home typically fit in one 20’ BigSteelBox.) BigSteelBoxes make great moving containers!

Besides the fact that a BigSteelBox is Big, there are many benefits to moving with BigSteelBox. When you use a traditional moving company, you have to cram all of the drama 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. After we deliver your BigSteelBox to your new home, you can unpack at your own pace. When you’re finished, we come and pick up the empty box. It almost sounds relaxing.

BigSteelBox Home DeliveryNot only is moving with BigSteelBox less stressful, it is also an affordable alternative to hiring a moving company. You don’t have to pay the "moving experts" that come along with the truck, and you don’t have to worry about how careful they’ll be with your armoire. The only comparable cost is renting a truck and doing it yourself. With BigSteelBox, we do the driving, and you don’t have to worry about the timing of moving to your new home.

Moving can be one of life’s most stressful events. We can’t make it stress-free, but we can make it better
