ISPM-15 Compliant Export Crating Service

ISPM-15 Certified Wood Crates

ISPM-15 and Why It’s Critical for International Shipments

One of the most important exporting terms used when talking about wood crating compliancy is what’s known as the ISPM-15 mark or bug stamp.

Many countries require the ISPM-15/bug stamp certifying that lumber used to fabricate wood crates and pallets for export shipping have been heat-treated to meet their specific regulations. Some even require that all bark be removed from the lumber before the crate is assembled. This is critical to avoid foreign pest infestation into new environments damaging fragile ecosystems. Certified crates and pallets clearly display stamps on each wood panel to easily distinguish proper treatment to customs authorities.

SECO Crates is compliant with the standards required for building wood crates and pallets for exporting to countries that require ISPM-15 wood.

Motorcycle Crating Services

For crating, all motorcycles should be strapped and secured to the base of the crate. If dimensions for the motorbike are unknown, here are some common/average dimensions to assist.

Sports bike (L x W x H): 2200 x 850 x 1200mm

Cruiser (L x W x H): 2450 x 950 x 1300mm

Of course motorcycles can be smaller and larger than these dimensions, these are just the common average sizes. So if, for example, your motorcycle is a cruiser and considered large, then potentially increase each of these dimensions.

Vespa’s, Royal Enfield's and similar motorized bikes can be secured to the base as well. This is wise. Although, because they are not as heavy, they can often be well padded and soft packed inside the crate to prevent them from moving. Accurate dimensions are helpful to ensure the crate supports the bike properly. Generally speaking a safe size for a Vespa/Scooter would be 1850 x 800 x 1300mm.

Why SECO Shipping Crates best for protecting motorcycles being transported overseas:
