  Obtain a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) for a new crane

Please complete this form if you built your crane in the current calendar year and you require a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Owner/Builders can request a low volume VIN for a new crane here. A separate form is required to obtain a surrogate VIN for a motor vehicle in Western Australia.

If you have built your crane prior to the current calendar year or refurbished your crane, you will need to present the crane for an examination. A request for a low volume VIN will be sent on your behalf by the Department of Transport Vehicle Examiners.

If you have applied for and have been allocated a VIN and your crane is not built in this current calendar Year, contact the Department of Transport by return email, as the VIN allocated references the actual year the crane was built.

Low volume VINs issued by the Department of Transport cannot be used for importing cranes manufactured overseas. WA issued VINs which are used for the importation of cranes will be deleted.

To apply for a low volume VIN for a new crane, please complete Form E70, below.

Imported cranes

If you are importing cranes, you will need to contact the Manufacturer in the country which the cranes are being constructed, and obtain VINs issued within the country of manufacture, and provide these VINs on your import application.

If you are intending on importing cranes, visit the Australian Government website, the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

Australian Company Number (ACN)

Under the Corporations Act 2001, every company in Australia has been issued with a unique, nine-digit number, an Australian Company Number (ACN), which must be shown on a range of documents.

The purpose of the ACN is to ensure adequate identification of companies when transacting business. New companies are issued with numbers by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) upon registration.
