Preparing a hot tub for a move

Hot tubs are expensive, fragile and heavy items that need to be packed and transported in the correct manner.  If you are intending to move your hot tub to your new home when you move, it is important to know what you are doing.

You need to be aware of the correct steps to move a hot tub; otherwise, you risk the hot tub being bumped, damaged or scratched during the process of relocation.  Hiring a professional moving company is the best thing you can do; however, there are a few tips that you should follow if you intend to move your hot tub yourself.

The first of these tips is to make sure that you are properly organized, as it is crucial to plan ahead.  It is not easy to pack a hot tub, and organization is vital to achieve. The first thing you should do is to make sure that you have cleared a path out of your home.  If your hot tub is already located outside then this will be much simpler; if your hot tub is inside your home, it can be a more difficult task to get it out.

Any objects or items of furniture should be removed and both the hot tub and the floor need to be cleaned.  The assistance of friends or relatives will be required, as you will not be able to do this alone.  In order to prevent the hot tub from being damaged during the move, use padding such as bubble wrap, shrink wrap, blankets or other soft materials.  A reputable third party provider may be necessary to move your hot tub.
