Nick Walker

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.
