Purchasing a Hot Tub Out of Our 60 Mile Radius February 22, 2016 13:44 1 Comment
What are your delivery charges?
Our regular delivery charges outside of the 60 Mile radius is £750 (including VAT) however this is not a definitive charge and is subject to negotiation. For example, we may choose not to charge delivery if you are close to our 60-mile radius and purchase one of £8,999 and above hot tubs. Alternatively, if you are located far south (Plymouth) or far north (Aberdeen) these delivery charges may well be subject to an increased charge.
The delivery charge quoted does not include the use of any HIAB or crane. If one is needed this will be an additional charge and your responsibility to organise appropriately.
What access requirements do you need?
Our Hot Tubs come on their side for delivery so the minimum width we require for access is the height of your hot tub plus an extra two inches to be sure. It is important for you to double check this minimum width against all gates, paths, windowsills and any other potential obstacles along the access route. The other hot tub measurements (width and depth) also need to be checked for access against any overhead obstacles such as guttering, tree branches and gate frames.
We use a piece of equipment called a Spa Dolly when able to, to ensure a safe and smooth delivery of your product. Because of this we ask you to ensure the access has sufficient space to accommodate the Hot Tub and the spa dolly.
If you are unsure, then feel free to give us a call or drop us an email at: email@example.com. We are able to move hot tubs over 2 foot walls, down steps and other terrain. Just make sure we know beforehand so that we are prepared with the correct equipment to ensure a smooth and safe delivery of your new hot tub.
What are the electrical requirements?
We have a dedicated Electrical Guidelines on our blog that will have all the information you need depending on the hot tub you buy. Please ensure you check the brochure or call us to confirm the appropriate supply required, as this is your responsibility.
Please ensure all electrical work is completed prior to delivery by a qualified electrician. Unfortunately, we are not electricians and therefore cannot complete this for you.
Do you complete a site survey?
If you are purchasing outside of the 60-mile radius of the Hull or Leeds Showrooms, we may not undertake a site survey and access for delivery will be your responsibility. You can download our site survey form here. This form will need to be completed and emailed to ourselves prior to delivery. It is also ideal if you can email photographs of your access route and installation location.
Do I need a thick concrete base?
No. All our hot tubs have a self-supporting shell which means that as long as your base is level, you hot tub can be placed on anything solid. This includes, paving stones and decking. Check out our reviews for some photos of other installations or our installation ideas video.
