ALT Moving & Deliveries Policy
Make a Booking
The Caretaker will schedule, supervise, and coordinate all people moving in and out of the building to minimise damage and inconvenience to its occupants, including the correct key operation of the goods lift. Under no circumstances shall the goods lift be used for moving purposes without the consent of the Caretaker.
Step 1: Booking the Service Elevator & Loading Bay: to book the Loading Bay and Service Lift for moving, please pre-book online. We encourage a 48-hour minimum notice period to ensure the loading facilities are available and adequate protection measures are installed in the lift and on Common Property. Bookings must be within the permitted time frames noted below. For deliveries, please call Reception and provide an indicative time range of the delivery and we will endeavor to make availability.
Step 2: Service Lift Induction: Please see Reception to check-in and obtain the key to operate the service lift. Residents are to undertake an induction to operate the service lift in ‘priority mode’. Building Staff must be satisfied the Resident is competent in operating the Elevator.

Moving Objects on Common Property – Protecting the Building
Scuff marks are caused in the corridors and Common Areas during moving and deliveries. Care must be taken when moving not to damage the interior or exterior of the lift and Common Property corridor surfaces. The following are recommended measures for protecting the building and your apartment while moving-in:
- Ceilings, Walls, and Doors: Use Common sense as to avoid scuffing or chipping ceilings, walls, and door frames. Pay particular attention to avoid damage to sprinkler heads, exit lights and fire detectors on the ceiling.
- Flooring: Do not drag heavy objects across carpets/flooring – use appropriate moving equipment (i.e. trolley or dolly) and/or carry all objects.
- make sure your removalist company has suitable insurance to cover damage and/or accidents that occur on Common Property. Damage to Common Property will be recovered from the Resident/Owner.
Where a visitor or lot occupier is found to be interfering with the Lift operation, causing fault and breakdown, and cause malicious damage to the lift or operating components and to any common area, will be liable for any costs associated with call-out, repair or rectification of the damage that is incurred by the Owners Corporation.
Cardboard & Rubbish from Moving & Deliveries
Please use the oversized bins provided in the ground floor Loading Bay for all your waste and recyclable material from the move in process. Do not use the Refuse Room recycle bins or rubbish chute on your level to dispose your move in waste. The Refuse Room is for residents to dispose their day-to-day household waste, only.
Disposing Hard Waste – Moving Out or Spring Cleaning
The most commonly dumped items on Common Property are household rubbish, furniture, mattresses, computers, and televisions. Leaving (dumping) hard waste on Common Property is against the Owners Corporation Rules.
When moving out or carrying out a spring clean of your apartment, please ensure no household waste is dumped within the refuse rooms, car parks loading bays or any Common Areas outside of your apartment. Storing hard waste on your car space is also not permitted.
Council collections are not available for the complex, as the building waste is arranged with a private company. Private collections are held fortnightly from the hard waste collection zone. Please contact concierge/reception to arrange a time to access to the hard waste collection zone and booking the Service Elevator (if required).
If we are able to identify the person who dumped the rubbish we will investigate, and the Owners Corporation informed. Penalties and a Formal Breach Notice may apply. Please take the rightful course of action and dispose your hard waste correctly.
