Moving Out

Making your move.

Just like when you moved in, please follow the steps below when you move out. Remember to redirect your mail with Australia Post.


Checklist:

  • Make your move between 9:00am – 4:00pm, Monday to Sunday.

  • A week before moving out, email Jake (VBCS) with the following:

    • The date(s) and time(s) of your move.

    • Details of your removalists public liability insurance (e.g. a Certificate of Currency).

  • Jake will make sure protective covers are fitted to the lift and, if necessary, organise additional hard rubbish removal.

  • Photograph any pre-existing damage in the common area walkways you’ll use moving out of your apartment. 

  • Keep the driveway entrances clear. Council designated drop-off/pick-up short-term parking is available in Lynch Street at the rear of the property. 

  • Ensure the lift remains available for other residents and their visitors. Please don’t interfere with the lift sensors to hold the lift. 

  • Look out for fire sprinkler heads. There’s one above the door just inside your apartment. If it’s struck, you may receive a costly visit from the Metropolitan Fire Brigade.  MFB charges are paid for by the responsible party.

  • Maintain the security of our building and the safety of our residents as you move. If you need to keep a door open, have someone there to keep watch.

  • Throw out unwanted packaging materials using the bins on the lower ground level next to the lift. 


Please flatten boxes before placing them in the recycling bins.
