If you have an old hot tub that needs to be removed, you may wonder how much it will cost.
Fortunately, there are free hot tub removal services available in many areas. This can be a great option if you don’t have the time or workforce to remove the hot tub yourself.
This blog post will discuss free hot tub removal services and how to find them.
Free Hot Tub Removal Methods
Removing a hot tub isn’t as simple as removing the garbage. Hot tubs are huge and difficult to move alone, and they aren’t commonly recycled at landfills or recycling facilities.
There are several ways to get rid of your old hot tub, including:
1. Trash It
You can scrape it up and send it to the landfill through your garbage bin if DIY is your thing and you want it gone. All you need is a dust mask, a pair of thick gloves, eye protection, and a Sawzall reciprocating saw (although some wrenches might also come in handy).
Accepting that this disposal option has the least ecological advantage, it does have benefits: It won’t cost much, and you can perform it whenever you like without extra help.
2. Junk It
When you go online to look for a way to remove your hot tub, numerous companies appear with bids to come to your home, load up your hot tub, and haul it away — no questions asked!
Recycling or salvaging anything of worth is the more environmentally sympathetic approach. Others race straight to the landfill and toss everything. In any case, you won’t be sweating.
3. Trade It
Many dealers will offer a trade-in deal when you purchase a new hot tub. There’s a chance your present hot tub has worth that may be used to buy a new one. Examine manufacturer or dealer websites for special offers.
4. Sell It
If you don’t want to sell your hot tub, no one else will. Craig’s List, Nextdoor, or Facebook Marketplace are all no-fee sell-it sites where you may get results quickly.
According to our study, trying to give it away might be a mistake; people frequently assume that “free” implies “needs expensive maintenance,” even if the ad explicitly states that it is in working order. It’s best to price it between $100 and $500 (or more).
How do I move a hot tub?
To get your hot tub ready for removal, there are a few things you’ll need to do ahead of time:
- Remove the power supply
- All of the water should be drained from the tub
- Disassemble the spa’s components, including pumps, heaters, electricity, and plumbing
- Pack all of the spa’s accessories into a separate box. Make sure there is enough space for the tub to pass through.
Can I lift a hot tub myself?
It would help if you never tried to lift a hot tub alone. Hot tubs are extremely heavy and can cause serious injury if not handled properly. Always enlist the help of at least two other people when lifting a hot tub.
Many free hot tub removal options are available if you know where to look. Be sure to do your research before selecting a free hot tub removal service to ensure that you get the best possible service. Thanks for reading!
