Why Choose Us?

BigSteelBox Structures has more than a decade of experience building with shipping containers, and we finish our projects to the highest standard.

There are many reasons to choose a steel structure over wood frame, and even more reasons to choose BigSteelBox Structures to create your mobile building.

Composed of corten corrugated steel and 1 1/8’’ marine grade hardwood floors, a BigSteelBox has been designed and built to “weather the storm”. You can ship them by boat, truck or train and they are virtually indestructible. Here are even more reasons to choose a BigSteelBox structure:


Developed to withstand the heavy abuse of ocean travel and consistent movement, corten steel offers a self-protective quality. Opposed to traditional steel, when corten steel is exposed to the elements it creates a skin of rust, which actually acts as a rust inhibitor.


The shipping container was designed with transportation in mind. With multiple lifting points and a rigid steel frame, containers can be craned, forklifted or flown into almost any location.


These life size lego blocks are commonly stacked in shipping yards up to 9 units high, fully loaded. Whether for interim storage or for a smaller footprint, the structural integrity of our Boxes makes saving space simple.


Unlike traditional wood structures, a modified BigSteelBox can be refurbished and repurposed, even after many years in the field.

Weather Proof and Secure

Equipped with steel locking arms and heavy duty rubber gaskets, our boxes are completely sealed from the elements and come with a lock box to protect from break ins.

Build to Suit

We can customize a solution to fit your needs. If you can dream it, we can build it.

We deliver a BigSteelBox to your home, you pack it at your own pace, then we pick it up and move it to your new home. If you need storage, keep the Box at your place or we'll store it at one of our secure locations.

Benefits of Building with Steel

BigSteelBoxes are built for ocean shipping and withstanding the elements, so they're much more solid, durable and stackable than trailers.
