Here are our top tips to help you ensure that your tub makes it to its new location safely and in full working order.
Don’t try to DIY!
Of course, it’s going to be tempting to try and move your hot tub by yourself or with the help of some friends, but it really is a job best left to professionals. Spas are very heavy and moving one is a very dangerous task. Repair costs could far exceed a removal quote. Specialist equipment should aways be used.
Take some photos & videos
It’s important to let the moving company know what they’re dealing with ahead of time. Take some photos and videos of the tub in its current location and the route to get it out to load onto the trailer (usually on the driveway). They can then decide how best to move it. Sending the dimensions and the brand of the tub in question can also be helpful for your removal firm. Measuring any tight gaps and notifying of and difficult areas is very important. These steps should be repeated for the delivery location.
Where’s it going?
The relocation company will require information relating to the new location for your tub, share this with your removal company, as well. This can make it far easier for them to get it in place quickly and efficiently. The new location must have a firm, level ground prepared ready for the delivery. You will need a qualified electrician to reconnect the spa to the power source so that you are fully insured.
