Elevators & Deliveries

Large Deliveries, Moves, and Independent Use Procedures

Because we are committed to providing excellent elevator service, we have established certain procedures for “private use,” or taking an elevator out of service for independent use. When you are expecting a large delivery where elevator padding is required, please schedule it with the General Manager. Large deliveries should be scheduled between 8am and 5pm on Mondays – Fridays only.

The moving in or out of any item or equipment which cannot be carried by one person and requires use of an elevator needs to be scheduled in advance. This advance notice allows time for the staff to put pads in the elevator to protect its walls and to be sure of no conflict with previously scheduled use by another resident. The hours for these activities are between 8am and 5pm on Mondays – Fridays only. Please note that moves cannot be scheduled during holidays or weekends.

Please remind your movers that they must provide masonite protection for floors and carpets between the loading area and the elevator, and the elevator and your unit. We may require that a building engineer and/or porter be in attendance for large moves.

The Move-in/out Request Reservation Form can be found in the Forms section, and is to be signed and submitted to management at least 72 hours prior to the move or large delivery, along with payment for your move-in/move-out fee.


Please do not allow your delivery company to wedge anything in the elevator doors or prop the doors because this will burn out the door motor and temporarily reduce the number of elevators servicing the building.

Elevator Malfunction Procedures

Each elevator is equipped with a telephone which rings directly into the third-party elevator monitoring call center. In the event an elevator should malfunction while you are in the cab, pick up the phone IMMEDIATELY. Give them the building location and the cab number you are in (this information is displayed on a sign on the elevator panel). The elevator company will contact Ruppert and we will dispatch an engineer and response team immediately. Our Engineer will stay with you until the elevator company and/or emergency personnel arrives to assist you in evacuating the cab.

While being trapped in an elevator may be an inconvenience, you are in no danger if you remain in the cab. Never try to pry the elevator doors open to get out. It is extremely dangerous since the cab may not be properly aligned with the floor. Wait for a qualified elevator mechanic or fireman to assist you.

In an emergency fire situation, elevators should never be used. If you are traveling in an elevator when an alarm sounds, the elevators will automatically go to the first floor and open their doors. This occurs one cab at a time. Please be patient.

Building Access and Visitor Procedures

Controlled Access

Your building is equipped with a monitored access control system. All exterior doors are locked at all times. You may gain access to the main lobby doors using your key card.
