Hot Tub Relocations

Hot tub relocations can be tricky. Your empty hot tub will typically weigh anywhere from 270kg (2 seater) to 900kg (8 seater). Most family hot tubs will weigh around 400kg. Although this may sound possible with enough people, quite often this doesn't help as you need adequate space to handle the spa and the weight isn't evenly balanced. Hot tub relocations require specialist moving kit and people with experience operating the kit.

Hot Tub Measurements - The height of the hot tub sat on your patio/deck, becomes the width when it's stood upright. It's vital to walk out the perceived best route for exiting the property with the hot tub, looking out for any protruding air vents, window ledges, door handles, as an example. Should the movers use the trolley as pictured above, then this will add a further 100cm+ on each end as well as a further 20cm on head height.There are other methods of moving the hot tubs such as using a skid, which will make this shorter, but this is depending on ground conditions at the property, as terrain like grass can be tricky when using a skid. Contact us for hot tub relocations.

Hot Tub Protection - We always insist on wrapping the spa for a hot tub relocation, for protection. Even with the most simple of moves, it can be a rough journey for the hot tub. Should we use our skid, then this already offers a layer of protection with a foam base, but more than likely, we would insist on wrapping the hot tub. Contact us for hot tub relocations.

Hot Tub Condition - It is vital you understand the risks of a hot tub relocation with an old hot tub. If the spa has been sat in the same spot for many years, or the spa has been semi sunk or sunk in decking, then it's worth noting the condition of the spa paneling and base the best you can. We will point out the dangers before committing to the job and can refuse to proceed with the job if it could be dangerous for our team. Contact us for hot tub relocations.

Preparing for your Hot Tub Relocation - In most circumstances, we expect to turn up to the hot tub drained and ready for removal, with the area around the hot tub cleared and ready for us. If the hot tub is sunk in decking or there are obstacles which require moving for us to gain access such as fence panels to remove, then this should all be done prior to us arriving, unless otherwise agreed. We will remove covers and cover lifters, we can disconnect from the power and leave safe, but it is important you prepare the best you can for our arrival and the removal. Contact us for hot tub relocations.

More so than most other services we offer, hot tub relocations take some additional planning. You can book online on our website, but we need to confirm the booking as need to reference multiple calendars for availability and arrange hire of specialist equipment in some cases.

Swim Spa Relocations

Moving Swim Spas

Your empty swim spa will typically weigh anywhere from 900kg+ and are more limited than a hot tub relocation due to the length and depth. Rarely, could you stand a swim spa on its side so the unit has to be kept flat for moving purposes, and so ample of space is usually required. Both swim spa and hot tub relocations require specialist moving kit and people with experience operating the kit, but in most circumstances moving a swim spa will require a crane lift.

Measurements - The overall size and orientation of the swim spa is the final measurement of it. Due to the size and weight, there is usually no option to stand the swim spa up on its side like a hot tub relocation, instead it has to remain flat on its base at all times. It's vital to walk out the perceived best route for exiting the property with the swim spa. Should the movers use the trolley, then this will add a further 100cm+ on each end of the swim spa and can only be used with extension bars, with the swim spa flat on its base. It is safe to assume when carrying out a swim spa relocation, either a Hiab Crane (lorry crane) or City Crane will more than likely be required.  Contact us for swim spa relocations.

Protection - The need for wrap isn't as crucial as it is for a hot tub, as you are a lot more restricted with how you can move a swim spa. We would always recommend wrapping the shell at the very least.  Contact us for swim spa relocations.

Condition - Like a hot tub, it is vital you understand the risks of moving an old swim spa. If the swim spa has been sat in the same spot for many years, or the spa has been semi sunk or sunk in decking, then it's worth noting the condition of the spa paneling and base, the best you can. If the base of the swim spa or cabinet is made out of timber and is spongy or rotten in areas, then we can refuse to proceed with the job as it can result in damage to the swim spa as well as be dangerous for our team. Contact us for swim spa relocations.

Preparing for your Swim Spa Relocation - In all circumstances, we expect to turn up to the swim spa drained and ready for removal, with the area around the swim spa cleared and ready for us. If the swim spa is sunk in decking or there are obstacles which require moving for us to gain access such as fence panels to remove, then this should all be done prior to us arriving, unless otherwise agreed. We will remove covers and cover lifters, we can disconnect from the power and leave safe, but it is important you prepare the best you can for our arrival and the removal. Contact us for swim spa relocations.

More so than most other services we offer, swim spa relocations take some additional planning. You wont have the ability to book a swim spa relocation on our website due to the specifics of the job. Instead Contact us for swim spa relocations and we can start to understand the job detail required.
