Portable Storage Containers for Rent in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Chicago.

3 Month Rental Special

Moving, remodeling, or do you just need more space? Get a portable storage container delivered to your door when you need it.

Portable storage containers are available in a wide selection of sizes. Whether you need a small temporary portable storage container on your site or a larger storage container for moving, we have it covered. You'll especially appreciate the personal attention we give. It makes it easy to rent the right size storage container for your needs.

Moving Containers - We are licensed (Household Goods Authority) to move households within Minnesota and around the country. Across town or across the country, Big Blue Boxes will work with you to ensure you rent just the right size moving container.

You can save significantly by using Big Blue Boxes in a number of ways:

  • You can pack and load moving containers yourself. Be sure to see our Tips and Moving Supplies pages for important information about options related to packing and loading.
  • If your new home isn't ready to move in but you have to be out of your old home, you can store your household goods in the storage container until your new home is ready. We work with you to determine the best place to store the container so that it is convenient and economical for you.
  • You pay freight to deliver the storage container to your old home and freight to deliver the filled storage container to your new home. Return freight is to the closest depot, which may or may not be the original depot. Especially in our Midwest area of Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois, this potentially saves a significant amount of shipping cost.

If you prefer, we can provide help loading and more; we have everything from an extra strong back to white glove service.

Remodeling - Whether you are replacing all the carpet in your home or remodeling a room, most companies and contractors require all furnishings be completely removed from the areas under construction. Big Blue Boxes' storage containers are incredibly helpful during this kind of disruption to daily living.

Rather than stuff everything into other rooms or the garage, rendering those areas nearly unusable, we'll deliver the right size storage container to your site and even help load it if you wish. Your possessions are right there, securely locked but accessible if you realize you've stored something essential. As soon as everything is completed and your goods are back in your home we come and pick up the storage container.

Storage - Is your garage being used as a large storage room? Are your cars sitting in the driveway through cold weather and summer storms as a result? Do you have a small storage shed that is threatening to explode if you push one more item into it? We help you choose one of our storage containers, in a size appropriate to your needs. You decide whether you want to store the container on your site or ours and for how long.

“Big Blue Boxes saved our sanity when we remodeled. Our rental storage container was delivered, on time, to our driveway. We loaded our entire main floor into it while we had hardwood floors installed. We loved having access to our possessions during the month we had the container and pickup was just as prompt as delivery. Great price, great friendly service. If I can convince my husband we need our own permanent storage we'll definitely buy from Big Blue Boxes.”...Helen, Pepin, WI
