If you are shopping for a hot tub, you might want to consider the top 5 reasons not to buy from a traveling hot tub show. We are basing these reasons on comments we have heard directly from customers of a traveling spa show, who later came to us for service or water care products.
Quality – Are the hot tubs high-quality? Have you read any reviews of the product? We recommend you do this when you are shopping for any hot tub, regardless of where you purchase it.
The hot tub may look great at the show. It has a cover, cover lifter and steps. But when it gets to your house, it’s the spa only. And it was dropped off in your driveway.
For this reason, if you do decide to buy from a traveling show, you must get everything in writing, even if it is promised to you verbally. If you expect to have your hot tub delivered to your backyard, make sure it is written in the contract. Otherwise, you will have a several hundred pound item to move before you can park your car. If the contract doesn’t explicitly state that you will receive a cover, cover lifter and steps, you aren’t getting them.
The Spa and Sauna Company will always deliver to your backyard. Most of our spas include delivery, a cover, a cover lifter and steps. There are some exceptions, due to the style or size of the spa. However, if you do select one of the few spas that does not include certain accessories, you can rest assured that we will make that clear to you.
