There are a number of things to consider prior to the delivery or relocation of your spa/hot tub.
Site selection and preparation are your responsibility
Should be level and structurally sound-A minimum of 100 lb/sq. ft load is recommended [Consult your owners manual].
Equipment compartment, which houses all of the electrical components, should be placed where water will drain away from it.
Need access to the equipment compartment for periodic spa care and maintenance.
Easy access to the circuit breakers in the sub-panel [240 volt models, or to the interrupter switch [120 volt models] is a must.
Electrical service needs-120 volt models will need a dedicated circuit to operate properly.
Should consider future servicing needs-Enclosures are nice, but could be cost prohibitive when service is needed.
Consider the position of your Spa/Hot Tub in it's final location. Plan the delivery route in advance for the placement of your Spa/Hot Tub.
Seating arrangement and view-what are you seeing from your seat, and how private is the site?
Access and placement of the steps-how easy is it to get in and out of the spa/hot tub?
Direction of the opened cover-when opening the cover, are there obstructions?
Drain spouts, filter and control panel access-are these easily accessible?
What is overhead [falling leaves, wind blown rain/debris, power and electrical lines]
Can your neighbors see you?-consider an awning, umbrella, lattice or fabric curtains for privacy.
Are you in full sun? UV rays make getting sunburns dangerous.
Width of gates, doors and sidewalks-are there any obstructions? Will removal be necessary?
Degree of any turns-delivery will require a 90 degree turn radius
Utility meters or A/C units-are there any that will obstruct delivery?
Are there any overhead obstructions-roof eaves, power lines, clothes lines or overhanging trees and branches
Stairs and corner clearances
Pools, shrubs, landscaping rocks
Furniture, trash cans, fire pits dog houses, wood piles and other miscellaneous items are your responsibility to move
Landscape curbing or 2 inches larger in elevation change? If so, you must consult us prior to delivery to make adequate preparations.
Spa/hot tub is moved as one piece, including the exterior cabinet.
The cart will raise heighth by an additonal 12 inches and add width of an additonal 4-6 inches width clearance.
Heighth of cart (12 inches) plus width will deterine vertical clearance needed when spa is on side for a single gate.
Heighth plus 4-6 inches will determine minimum width of clearance necessary.
Sharp turns and angles will need additional width clearance.
Is there an incline or stairs? Allow for additional overhead clearance.
The use of a crane for delivery and installation is necessary on occasion and primarily for spa deliveries with inadequate access to prevent damage to your property, spa and injury to delivery personnel. We are able to assist you with crane arrangements. If your Spa/Hot Tub delivery requires the use of a crane, the cost of a crane is not included in standard delivery service. Customer will be responsible for payment to the crane company directly.
Spa/hot tub must be fully drained and disconnected prior to relocation. [$100 fee if not drained]
For disconnection, we recommend the use of a licensed electrician. We can refer an electrician if needed.
Are you needing an old spa/hot tub hauled away at the time of installation? If so, we will need to know that in advance of delivery. There will be an additional fee for the removal and haul away of the old spa/hot tub.
