Spacemaking since 2018.
We’re Container Space. From humble beginnings in Mount Maunganui, we’ve grown into the most trusted shipping container supplier in the North Island.

With local branches in key locations throughout the North Island, and strong partnerships with some of Aotearoa’s best transport providers, we deliver shipping containers where you need them, fast.

Having founded several transport businesses over the past two decades, Nick went from thinking shipping containers were “not that pretty,” to becoming a proud co-owner of Container Space in 2023. After falling for the endless solutions that shipping containers provide, Nick now gets a real kick out of helping people to solve their space and storage challenges quickly and cost effectively. Originally from Hawera in the mighty Taranaki region, Nick now resides in what he describes as the “Riviera” of the North Island, the vastly underrated town of Whanganui. Always up for a laugh and a social gathering, Nick’s relishing meeting Container Space’s partners and customers throughout the motu. When he’s not dreaming up big ideas or exploring what’s possible, Nick and his wife Hilary are out supporting their three teenagers with their various endeavours or travelling to the next event.
A processing powerhouse, Janelle’s incredible, behind-the-scenes mahi helps to keep our whole operation running smoothly. Taking care of all things business support, including co-ordinating with our transport partners to ensure we deliver quickly, Janelle’s can-do attitude and ability to just get on with it, is a trait she undoubtedly honed while raising four beautiful tamariki! Born in the Bay, Janelle makes the most of everything Papamoa has to offer, including hitting the walking tracks and reserve and enjoying glorious sunsets on the beach. Janelle is our rock and we’re stocked to have her as part of our crew.
Always smiling, Teina has a knack for making us laugh out loud, which is just one of the reasons we like having this guy around. As our on-site engineer, Teina works closely with Drei to help bring our shipping container modifications to life, yet he also lends a hand in many other areas like, container loading. Originally from Rotorua, Teina is from a tight whanau who are spread throughout the motu. A gym goer and talented sportsperson, Teina plays Touch Rugby and is impartial to the “odd” beer on occasion. Cheers for all the laughs Teina!
You dream it and Drei will create it. With over 13 years of experience specialising in designing and building shipping container modifications, Drei can transform any blank canvas into the space you need. Hailing from Tokoroa, Drei now lives in Tauranga with his wife, mother-in-law and super cute canine, Pango. A real people person and all-round good sort, Drei enjoys a cold beer in the pub after a hard day’s mahi and maximises his time out on the ocean. Drei brings so much fire and energy to our team and we’re privileged to work alongside such a skilled builder.
Jodie oversees our spacemaking operations. She’s the one who makes sure we’ve got the perfect storage solution when you want it, where you want it. A classic car enthusiast and Bay of Plenty local, Jodie’s spent half her life working in shipping and the other half in the car industry, so she knows her stuff. If you’re a regular beach goer, you might spot Jodie out early catching the sunrise on her morning walk. She’s also impartial to the odd vino and her favourite wineries to frequent are in Hawkes Bay – we’re with you there Jodie!

Tony or “Herb” is our dedicated Spacemaker in the Hawkes Bay, Taranaki and Manawatu regions. Originally from New Plymouth, Tony moved to Hastings with his partner Susan to enjoy warmer weather and wineries. What Tony likes most about being a Spacemaker is that he gets to help customers find the right container to really bring their unique projects to life. When he’s not working, you’ll find Tony out riding his Harley, camping or catching up with his kids in Taranaki. Nice one Tony!

After more than 19 years of working with shipping containers, Deon still gets a kick out of helping our customers to solve their storage challenges. What Deon enjoys most about his role is engaging with all kinds of customers in communities throughout the Bay of Plenty, Coromandel, Taupo and central North Island.

Chrystal’s a highly experienced spacemaker who we’re stoked to have on our team! Born and raised in Tāmaki Makaurau, Chrystal is a Cook Island/Māori descendant who lives with her fiancé, 5 children, and 2 gorgeous fur babies – Lola and Hades. When she’s not solving space challenges for our customers, you’ll find Chrystal hanging with her whānau, walking her dogs, or curled up in a quiet spot reading a Harry Potter or Twilight novel. Chrystal radiates the best kind of energy, so if you see her out and about in Auckland, be sure to stop for a korero – she’s always up for it!

Fantastic company, customer service A+, friendly, helpful top notch !!
We have just purchased 4 containers off Wayne and can't fault the impeccable, personalized service he gave us, let alone a great deal. From listening to what we required, explaining our options then providing us with fully delivered solution, these guys are bloody awesome. I would highly recommend Container Space to anyone thinking of getting a container.
Super easy to deal with , I've had excellent communication with them for several buys in different locations.
Awesome company to deal with, nothing seemed to be a problem from purchasing a new container and getting it delivered to my house and then moving it from Whangarei to Tauranga they organized everything. Good to see there is still companies that care about their customers.
Fantastic company to deal with, The products are exactly as described. Delivery was fast and effective. 5 star
Awesome company. Was great service from the beginning to the end. The lady we dealt with was awesome, delivery man was so cool to stay and help make sure it was leveled. Price for buying and delivering was the cheapest by far. We are very happy with our brand new container. Was even impressed that it was delivered 3 days earlier when asked. Much appreciated, thank yous so much for this. Definitely will be dealing through yous again. Will be in contact soon. Cheers Mike Brock & Liana.
