Prep It Properly

Getting your hot tub prepared for your move is an important step and can set you up for success throughout the entire process. First, be sure to drain the hot tub — it can’t (and shouldn’t) be moved with water in it! Once it’s drained, you can choose to clean it, or skip cleaning and make sure it is disconnected from power and anything else keeping it in place so it can be moved more easily.


Familiarize Yourself With Setup

While you’re unhooking everything, it’s a good idea to either write down the steps you took or simply review any manuals that came with it so that you know how to set it up again after the move is complete. This will help to streamline the process of getting your new place feeling like home again. You can even treat yourself to a warm soak in the hot tub after a long day of unpacking in your new space.


Double Check Warranty or Care Requirements

One of the most important steps to take when you’re moving with a hot tub, especially if it’s newer, is to check the warranty and care requirements. Some hot tub manufacturers or sellers offer a warranty that could be potentially voided if you drain, clean, or unhook the hot tub yourself. Avoid warranty headaches by checking the terms and conditions before you get started moving.
