How to Create a Plastic Ball Beach
In recent years there has been a proliferation of container-based buildings in Phoenix, Arizona. From providing market-rate rental accommodation to retail space, shipping containers are getting a new lease of life.
Let’s take a look at some statistics. It takes 1.1 million plastic balls to fill 12,840 cubic feet of pit space, with the deepest end measuring three feet. The balls were shipped straight from Sydney, where they were placed in 2,200 cardboard boxes (each labeled “BALL PIT BALLS”). After that, the boxes were loaded into seven shipping containers and sent to their chilly destination across the equator.
Shipping containers are used as a modular private gym.

Shipping your container internationally?
You will need a cargo worthy container that has passed a survey inspection. Our network of IICL certified inspectors can provide an independent survey inspection that ensures that your “shipper owned container” is cargo-worthy/seaworthy.
They will provide a one-page inspection detailing any necessary repairs and will certify that your shipping container is structurally sound and good for international shipping.
They will apply a new CSC (Convention for Safe Containers) sticker showing that your container has passed. This sticker is good for 1 year.
If your container needs repair, the certificate will be applied once the necessary repairs are made.
