Hot Tub Moving, Relocation

This is what we typically do when we move a used hot tub:*

-travel to the pick-up location with truck, trailer and moving equipment
-set up pylons or detour signs on road if our parking affects traffic
-travel to the pick-up address with truck-full of specialized moving equipment

-create ramps, lay down plywood, set up winch/rails

-empty the tub and pipes/hoses of residual water to lighten it and reduce strain on plumbing

-disconnect the plumbing

-turn off power and disconnect the electrical

-remove the GFCI breaker and thread-cap the panel wires

-safely remove or cap the armoured cable

-pad the tub to protect it from abrasion and impact damage

-use jacks, air bladders and winches as needed to remove the tub and place it on a the dolly

-clean the pad (area under tub), remove bio-hazardous waste & disinfect the area

-move the tub, cover, equipment and cabinet/cladding out of the yard and onto the truck/trailer

-remove and set aside the bits and parts that may fall off or shake loose while traveling

-travel to the drop-off address

-set up pylons or detour signs on road

-create ramps, lay down plywood, set up winch/rails

-bring in the replacement tub and place it on the pad

-re-assemble and replace the parts that were removed& set aside for travel

-connect the plumbing

-walk you through instructions & tips on hot tub operation and maintenance (if desired)

-suggest and offer equipment and product options that you may be interested in acquiring for your hot tub 

Typically, a hot tub relocation will cost somewhere between $400 - $800, depending on the distance, difficulty and risk. 

In order to give you a more accurate estimate, we need to know more about the tub, access and location so we can understand what's involved.

We could come by in person to help you how to move a hot tub yourself and give you a more exact estimate, but we'll charge you $135 for the service call.  

You can save yourself the money and save us the trip by sending us the following information via email:


-Location: What address is the tub located, and what address is it going to?

-Hot Tub: brand name, size, sunk-in/free-standing, rotting skirt, rodent-infested?

-Access: what is the path like between the pad and the truck?

It would also be very helpful if you sent pictures of the following:
-the hot tub itself (uncovered jetted shell, skirt/cabinet, pumps/controls)
-placement context (eg: wood, gravel or concrete pad, sunk in, free-standing, elevated, etc.)
-Access: Will the tub have to go "on-end" to fit thru narrow spaces? Any height/width restrictions, contours, inclines, steps, trees/plants uneven surfaces or unstable terrain, etc?
