Q: How much does it cost to move a spa?
A: The cost is primarily dependent on the following:

For example, a local delivery of a 7 x 7 spa could be as low as $200, while a disposal of the same spa may be around $290

Q: What do you mean by "access"?
A: We need enough clearance to move the spa; consider the width and height of the spa. Most of the time we stand it on its side to move it. It has to clear the gas meter, eves or overhang on the roof, fences, gates, fireplace, A/C unit, trees, etc.

Q: Can you move my spa to Lake Tahoe?
A: We can take your spa anywhere within a days drive.

Q: Can you just get rid of my hot tub for me?
A: Absolutely! We provide disposal / removal services for hot tubs and gazebos.

Q: What if the spa won't fit through my gate?
A: There is always a way! If the spa is being moved to another location then we would work with your local crane company to get the spa out (or in) safely.

If the spa is a removal / disposal we can cut it up and take it out in sections. And yes, we always clean up the mess!

Q: If there is not enough clearance to get the hot tub out, do I need a crane?
A: Not necessarily! We can usually take a fence down, and put it back up. Sometimes we can go through the fence to a neighbors yard and out their gate. We look at every possible option to keep the costs down, and to do the job safely.

Q: If I need a crane, how much will it cost?
A: Rates vary depending on the crane company and the size of the crane needed. The lowest we've seen is around $250 for a small crane and $450 for a bigger one. You can either pay them directly or we can take care of the whole job for one quoted price.

Q: My spa is down in a deck, can you get it out?
A: Yes! We specialized in all types of situations for in-deck, in-ground, second story decks, up hill, down hill... you name it!

Q: How much notice do you require to set up an appointment?
A: As much notice as possible is always appreciated, and usually two days notice is required. Scheduling is dependent on your location and the type of job. Spring and Summer are busiest and the schedule fills up quick.

Q: Can you run the electrical lines?
A: We would be happy to give you a referral to a licensed electrician. We can tell you what you, as a homeowner, would need to do to run a complete line from the house to the spa, safely.

Q: Do you move anything else besides spas & hot tubs?
A: We move the occasional BBQ Island, but we specialize in delivering new spas, relocating used spas, and removing old ones. Our focus and commitment has earned us an excellent reputation, and we like to keep it that way.

Q: I recently purchased a spa from Costco. Can you get it to my backyard?
A: Yes we can. We can also pick up from Home Depot or any other store / warehouse location. If your spa gets delivered to your driveway, we can move it to your backyard, right where you want it.

Q: Can you also move my gazebo?
A: No problem! Spa Movers also moves and relocates gazebos. From smaller lip mount to bigger room size gazebos, just give us a call and we'll give you an estimate, start to finish!
