After hours rental car return

Does anybody know of any rental car place in Melbourne with after hours drop off box?

I want to drive to Philip island but I need to return the car that same night.

I've rented from Avis in South Melbourne, very close to the city centre, and they got me to toss the key through a slightly opened window!

But that does mean leaving it on the street overnight without being inspected for damage first.

Thrifty at Southern Cross do as well. The risk is any damage that happens is still your liability until they inspect the vehicle the next day.

Thanks for the responses. I will look into both of those places. I understand that I am responsible for the car until the next day.

Thanks again
