Moving your Spa Pool / Hot Tub
Moving House? Let the experts take the hassle out of moving your tub. We offer a reliable and efficient hot tub removal service, which can be tailored to meet individual needs. Our removal teams are experienced in the moving and positioning of hot tubs, and will safely move your tub to a new location.
What vehicle will be used to transport my hot tub?
We use a purpose built Spa Dolly, which are suitable to transport hot tubs. They are ideal for home deliveries/collections as they suit access to most houses, so you do not have to worry about a large lorry turning up. This method of moving will suit any Hot Tub SOS problem.
How many men will be supplied to complete the move?
Happy Hot Tubs will supply 2 men with the expertise to quickly and safely move your tub. Or if you want to save money we are very capable to deliver this with one man and the customers help.
If you think extra labour will be required to move the tub through difficult areas, then we suggest you arrange extra labour to be available on the day. We can supply extra men if requested, but this will increase the price as we budget all moves on one or two men.
How will my hot tub be moved?
The hot tub will be moved onto its end, and placed on a special trolley called a Spa Kart (see diagram and picture at bottom of page). The tub is then wheeled out of position on the Spa Kart, and loaded onto our vehicle. After transportation the hot tub is unloaded, and wheeled into its new position on the Spa Kart. Please note it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure there is suitable access for the spa to be wheeled on the Spa Kart at the removal address, and the new address.
Ideally we require clear level access over hard ground. Soft ground, and one or two small steps can be overcome by ramping or boarding in advance. Alternatively our drivers can bring a running board if requested.
Large steps, inclines etc can cause problems. If unsure please contact us for advice. If the tub needs to be taken off the trolley to negotiate a difficult area like steps, then you may need to arrange extra labour to move the spa.
When checking the access route beware of tree and shrub branches, gate arches, low roof eaves, drain pipes, central heating flues, outside taps and overhanging power cables narrowing access. Also remember to check there is adequate turning space in corners.
Some large Hot Tubs or Swim Spas will require a crane or Hi-Ab please check with the office, you can ring 7 days a week or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What should I consider when checking if access is suitable?
Dimensions are critical and there must be sufficient allowance for the height and width of the spa on the Spa Kart. Please remember that the tub is moved on end, so the width becomes the height, and the height becomes the width.
If you are unsure of your access please don't hesitate to send photos and we will be happy to advise you.
