Hot Tub Moving, Relocation


The cost to relocate a hot tub is typically about the same as it would cost to have one delivered (typically $400), times two. Because essentially, it's the same amount of work as doing two deliveries. 


Keep in mind that used hot tubs require more careful handling than new ones because new hot tubs typcally come shrink-wrapped in protective packaging, and used hot tubs are typically more brittle than new ones.  

We may lower the price if the hot tub is execeptionally small and/or if the access is very easy at both ends.  And we reserve the right to charge extra if the access is exeptionally difficult and/or if the hot tub is unusually large and heavy. 

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

-disconnect the electrical& deactivate the home electrical if applicable ($100 fee)

-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 

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 a $95 call-out fee plus $75 consultation fee for the service call (we reimburse you the consultation fee if you decide to hire us for the job).

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?
