Transportable Homes in Palmerston North

Looking for affordable transportable homes in Palmerston North? We’re here to help.


With the cost of buying a home continually rising, the dream of owning your own home is slipping out of reach for many New Zealanders.

That’s one of the many reasons that transportable homes in Palmerston North are becoming a more and more popular choice. When compared to buying a house, a transportable home is much more affordable. There is no need for a massive mortgage when you choose one of these houses, and they are just as warm and cosy to live in. Move to Palmerston North without the massive cost of housing.

If you want to live in a smaller city that’s still got plenty of life, then Palmerston North, located in the Manawatu-Whanganui region, could be ideal for you. Like most cities across New Zealand, the house prices in Palmerston North are on the rise. The median house price in the Manawatu-Whanganui area is now at $503,000. In some suburbs, the median house cost is as much as $810,000 – that’s starting to climb towards Auckland prices! If you want to own a house in Palmerston North, you still can, thanks to the affordable housing provided by Able Spaces. Our homes start from prices as low as $125,000 for a two-bedroom home in Palmerston North. If you do the math, that’s less than 25% of the median house price for the region. At Able Spaces, we offer transportable homes at a much more attainable price point that most first-home buyers can afford.

For many Palmerston North residents aiming to get their foot on the property ladder, portable homes are an appealing option. You can buy one of these prefab houses and have a ready-made home that’s all set for you to move into straight away. Even better, these modular houses are fully mobile so you can change location whenever you like without moving into a new home.

"Norma and the team at Able Spaces were fantastic to deal with when we were purchasing our new club rooms building. They were more than happy to accommodate our needs and wants, especially as we were after a multipurpose type building. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new building, their attention to detail is exceptional and they are happy to go the extra mile."

"Dealing with Norma at Able Spaces was an experience where we were kept informed of progress on our new custom built office that has arrived on site in tip top condition. All the comments from clients (including builders) are very favorable about the fit-out and the quality of the build. Thanks Norma and her team. A very happy customer here!"

Bernard, Marton

"My parents love their warm little home that Norma and her team built especially for them. Taking into account all the extra requirements for their limited mobility and old age. Norma allowed us to customize so many parts that have made all the difference in making the house long term livable and wheelchair friendly. Thank you Able Spaces for all your hard work."

Nicole, Featherston

" The building is a great success and I would be happy to give anyone a recommendation "

Jeremy, Riversdale

" Thank you so much for your excellent service, and providing us with the unit at such sort notice and so close to Christmas! We are sure to approach you for another rental in the future should we have a need (such as a visiting German relative!) "

Barbara, Maungaroa Valley

" I must tell you how happy I am with my new portable unit which I looked at yesterday - looking forward to it being ready for me to move into when I get back from my trip to the UK.  My friend Murray was very impressed with the unit too and the high standard of it.  So we were two happy people - despite the pouring rain - when we left Wellington after our viewing. "

Rosemary, Masterton

" Norma was an absolute pleasure to deal with! Beginning to end, communication was immediate and always friendly. Our 2 bedroom building we had was awesome, very spacious and comfortable. The kids and I loved having our own space at the family home =)
Highly recommended "

Monique, Wainuiomata

" We love our home, it's so warm and cosy. We are so happy we decided to go with Able Spaces, After much deliberation on homes, even the one that has just recently been on Fair Go, I talked with that guy for weeks, the poor people who followed through, had their money taken and no home! Norma you have been amazing and delivered on everything we wanted. You are a very honest Director of your company. We have no hesitation in recommending Able Spaces Homes "
