Hot tubs are one of the heaviest items we transfer, and they’re also one of the most frequently requested things. After all, your hot tub is a significant investment, and it would be a waste to leave it for anyone else to enjoy. Besides, after a big move, your hot tub is a perfect place to relax. It’s worth noting that transporting and loading a hot tub into a moving truck isn’t without its challenges.

One of our Moving Consultants’ pre-move survey is the first step toward a successful Hot Tub Relocation. Our Moving Contractor will come to your current residence as well as the new location where the hot tub will be shipped. He’ll answer questions and identify key details about the transfer that will help us plan the necessary equipment and staff to complete the relocation.
Our Moving Consultant will go through the following things during the pre-move survey:
Identifying the Make/Model – Since the hot tub design will differ significantly, our Moving Consultant would need to decide on the dealer or manufacturer. The equipment kit, which includes the furnace, filters, pump, blower, electrical, and plumbing systems, will then be checked and decided. This will allow the Moving Consultant to investigate whether the dealer suggests removing the equipment pack, draining it, and loading it into a separate box. On the other hand, some hot tub models advocate keeping the equipment pack attached to the hot tub cover. Any of this information is accessible by contacting the manufacturer or dealer.
Identify Possible Obstacles: Our Moving Contractor will decide where the hot tub will be shipped, both now and in the future. He’ll look for anything that might impede the hot tub’s loading or delivery; he has this information, and he will develop a transfer plan for you, making sure to reserve the necessary equipment and staff. Our Moving Contractor may find potential problems or hazards that would make moving your hot tub too tricky and potentially cause damage to your home or hot tub. If that’s the case, he’ll let you know about any possible moving methods we might use to minimize harm. The Moving Contractor will ask you to sign a waiver form on hot tub transfers that are considered overly complicated or high risk before continuing. The waiver form guarantees that you have been told of the risk of damage to your property or hot tub and that Buzzmoving.com will not be held liable for any losses sustained during the relocation of your hot tub.
Current Condition, Weight, and Valuation – Our Moving Specialist will determine the current state of your hot tub and locate any wear or concern areas. The desirable tub weight will help decide how many movers and equipment will be needed to lift or position it during pick-up and delivery. It’s also worth mentioning that Skilled Movers.com is limited. Sixty cents per pound per article unless you announce a higher released value in writing before the move.
Drain Check: Our Moving Contractor will confirm that your hot tub has been drained or will warn you that it will need to be fully drained before your transfer. If you haven’t done it before, you can either call the dealer to make plans or get instructions on how to drain it yourself. A hose bibb drain, which connects directly to a garden hose, is standard on most hot tubs. A hot tub usually contains about five to six gallons of water after draining. Using a wet-dry vac to drain the residual water will help ensure that it does not spill and ruin the surrounding carpeting or floor during the transfer.
Check Your Move Date: The season you want to move your hot tub will have a significant effect on your move’s scheduling and preparation. The ground condition, for example, would have a substantial impact on how the hot tub is removed or delivered. When the ground is soft, our Moving Contractor can suggest that we create a walkway to and from your hot tub out of 3/4″ plywood. Often, if you’re driving when freezing temperatures are a possibility, a high-pressure vacuum should be used to drain the entire plumbing system. This will keep the pipes from being affected. It would be beneficial if you did not try to do this on your own. Instead, you can call your hot tub dealer for assistance with these facilities.
Identifying your truck and equipment: As you’ve heard, each hot tub move poses its own set of challenges. For your unique hot tub, our Moving Contractor will reserve the necessary equipment and vehicle. A moving trailer or a flatbed trailer may be used to move your hot tub. To ensure the best ride for your hot tub, all Buzzmoving.com moving trucks are fitted with air suspension.
