Moving a hot tub can be a daunting task, but with the right equipment and a bit of know-how, it can be done safely and efficiently. As experts in the field of hot tub moving, Utah Tub & Spa Movers is here to provide you with the best equipment for the job.
In this article, we will discuss the top equipment needed for a successful hot tub move. From dollies to straps, we will cover everything you need to know to make your hot tub move a breeze.
The first item you’ll need for your hot tub move is a dolly. A dolly is a small platform on wheels that is designed to carry heavy objects. For hot tubs, you’ll want to use a specialized hot tub dolly that is designed to hold the weight and size of your specific hot tub model.
At Utah Tub & Spa Movers, we use a custom-built hot tub dolly that is specifically designed to fit the dimensions of most hot tubs. Our dollies are made with high-quality materials and are designed to keep your hot tub safe and secure during transport.
Once your hot tub is securely on the dolly, you’ll need to strap it down to prevent it from shifting during transport. You’ll want to use heavy-duty straps that are specifically designed for hot tub moving. At Utah Tub & Spa Movers, we use 4-inch straps that are rated to hold up to 10,000 pounds.
It’s important to properly position the straps to distribute the weight of the hot tub evenly. You’ll want to place the straps near the center of the hot tub and tighten them snugly to keep the hot tub from moving during transport.
To prevent scratches and damage to your hot tub during transport, it’s important to wrap it in moving blankets. Moving blankets are thick, padded blankets that are designed to protect furniture and other large objects during transport.
At Utah Tub & Spa Movers, we use high-quality moving blankets that are specifically designed for hot tub moving. Our blankets are made with a durable outer layer and a thick, padded inner layer to provide maximum protection for your hot tub.
When moving a hot tub, it’s important to protect the sides from damage. One way to do this is by using PVC pipes. PVC pipes are placed under the hot tub and act as a buffer between the hot tub and the ground.
At Utah Tub & Spa Movers, we use 2-inch PVC pipes that are cut to the length of the hot tub. We place the PVC pipes under the hot tub to provide a protective barrier during transport.
Finally, you’ll need a moving truck to transport your hot tub to its new location. It’s important to choose a moving truck that is large enough to accommodate the size of your hot tub.
At Utah Tub & Spa Movers, we use specially equipped moving trucks that are designed to transport hot tubs. Our trucks have a hydraulic lift system that makes it easy to load and unload hot tubs safely and efficiently.
