Many after-hours incidents can be attended to the next business day, however some major health and safety or security issues often need to be handled sooner.
Our office hours are:
Monday to Friday from 9.00am – 1pm and 2pm – 5pm.
If you do need attention outside of these hours, following is a list of Premier preferred after-hours tradesmen, alternatively you may call the tradesman of your choice and forward the account to our office for consideration by the executive committee. Please be advised that if the expense is deemed personal rather than strata related then you will be asked to pay the invoice.

In the event that the roller shutter or gate for your building carpark becomes jammed closed and will not open, first look for any instructions nearby on how to manually release the door. Sometimes shutters have a chain for manual release or gates have a knob that once turns allows them to slide or swing freely. If you cannot locate these items and your onsite committee members do not have manual override keys then check for any signage near the shutter or gate advising of who services the door and contact them first.
In the event that there is no further information available then contact Aldo of Dominator Doors on 0414 467 464.

JSJ Roofing – 9627 3232
Gabors Roof Service – 0418 225 338
