The Blue Bins Vancouver location was started by Sukh and Tej, two experienced, business-minded entrepreneurs who happened upon an under-serviced niche: There were a number of small companies who sold and rented storage and moving supplies, but nobody had scaled in quite the way that has allowed Blue Bins to position itself as an inventory.
Blue Bins is centrally located on Annacis Island, one of the oldest industrial parks in Canada, where we enjoy easy access to highways, ports, airports, and all major business centers including Downtown Vancouver, Metrotown, and Surrey Center.

Sukh & Tej on British Columbia & Their Unique Synergy
“The Greater Vancouver area and British Columbia for that matter, offer unique opportunities and challenges and that’s why we love it. The breathtaking scenery, the mild weather and the truly diverse population make it different from anywhere on the planet. We both have enjoyed all this area has to offer. Being involved in the community through coaching sports, mentoring youth, being part of the arts scene and enjoying the diverse foods and cultures, you couldn’t find a better place.
After several decades of working for large corporations, we decided to venture out on our own. Having complimentary skills and being able to recognize the skills needed to be successful we knew we had to be partners.”
