Before removalist work can commence, your removalist will be required to;

  • sign into the building
  • agree to the transportation of goods agreement
  • provide a copy of their public liability insurance

The booking request must be received at least two full working days prior to your requested move in/out date. Incomplete forms will not be accepted.

Move In/Out booking requests are only allowed Monday to Friday between 8.00am and 5.00pm and on Saturday between 9.00am and 4.00pm.

Building Management reserves the right to cancel a booking at any time when circumstances beyond the control of Building Management dictate that a booking cannot proceed.

A booking can also be cancelled at the discretion of Building Management if the resident or removal company fails to comply with the lawful directions of Building Management, breaches the By-Laws or health and safety procedures or behaves in a rude or abusive manner.
