What to expect from a hot tub removal service

What to Expect From a Hot Tub Removal Service

When you think of relaxation, a hot tub is probably one of the first things that come to mind. If you’re lucky enough to own one, you know how relaxing it can be, but you also know that it’s not without its challenges. Having a hot tub at home is more demanding than it sounds, as maintenance can be expensive. 

Often, homeowners conclude that having a hot tub and the frequency with which they use it doesn’t justify the costs. So, if you want to dispose of your old hot tub, here’s what to expect from a hot tub removal service. 

Initial assessment

Every hot tub removal is unique! The professionals must assess the tub and its surroundings to ascertain the best action for safely taking it out. Removal could be straightforward or challenging, but you – the customer – can rest assured that our professionals will handle everything. 

The initial assessment will also allow the professionals to give an up-front estimate for the job. If you like the price, the work will commence. 

Estimates

The cost estimate includes labour charges, equipment costs, transportation, and disposal fees. The professionals will also let you know how long the process will take and what equipment they will use. 

Do note that since these are estimates, there may be some minor changes in the duration of the hot tub removal. In most cases, the cost estimates do not change by the end of the job, but there can be exceptions.

Preparation

You only need to do two things throughout the hot tub removal process. When calling to make an appointment for our services, just let us know how big the tub is so our professionals can plan accordingly. We can work with all sizes and shapes of hot tubs, spas, or jacuzzis, be it a small 5-seater or an oversized 10-seater. 

Secondly, ensure you drain and disconnect the hot tub so the professionals can get started as soon as possible. 

Other than that, you can sit back and relax. We will safely dispose of your old hot tub without damaging anything on your property. Even if the tub is indoors, we can assess the situation and devise a plan to dismantle it, remove it, and remove it from the house. 

Extraction/ Removal

Hot tubs weigh a few hundred pounds (500 pounds on average), making them very difficult to lift and move. Since hot tubs are heavy and large, removal is challenging. Junk Works professionals will come prepared with the necessary tools and equipment to make the job seamless. 

Depending on the size and weight, we may need cranes, dollies, or other devices. Our professionals are trained in efficient hot tub removal techniques and can adapt according to your unique situation. 

Transport and Disposal

Transporting an old hot tub requires a big vehicle, so our professionals will arrive in a truck big enough for the job. Once it is lifted out of its place, the tub needs to be moved to the vehicle outside the home, which is easier if it is outside. Regardless of its placement, we will get it out and safely put it in our truck. 

Junk Works follows the Canadian Environmental and climate change agency regulations for disposal. Along with hot tub removal services, we offer furniture removal, trash removal, construction waste removal, foreclosure cleanouts, and more. We recycle and donate 60 percent of the junk collected, making our junk-handling practices among the best. 

We also collect and recycle e-waste like old computers, laptops, phones, tablets, and other electrical appliances.

Cleanup

The hot tub removal can leave behind some debris and dirty surroundings. Don’t worry; the crew will take care of it. A professional team like ours will clean up the area to ensure there is no leftover debris and the surrounding area is as it was. We will try our best to leave everything the way it was, in good condition. Our crew believes in “working smart, not hard,” so we try to carry out the removal and disposal most efficiently.

Scheduling and Communication

As the homeowner, you should be able to pick a time that works for you and get all the information you need. Reputable contractors will allow you to select a time window and keep you updated when they’re close to your location. 

Junk Works enables you to choose from 2-hour slots, and the crew will call you 15 to 30 minutes before the appointment to let you know they are on their way. When the team arrives, they will give you an estimate and start working if you agree.

Customer Satisfaction

For every reputable service provider, customer satisfaction should be the top priority. If the customer is not happy with the work, they would not recommend the service provider to others. Junk Works prides itself on customer satisfaction. We have a 100 percent quality guarantee, offer written estimates that would beat any other assessments, and offer the best service in the industry.

Why should you hire a hot tub removal service?

Hiring a professional hot tub removal service will save you the tiring effort of dismantling the tub, getting the tools and equipment, and then figuring out how to dispose of the tub safely. Besides the fact that hot tubs are pretty heavy, they sometimes require specialized tools for removal, which may be expensive for you to purchase. 

Professional services will follow the proper guidelines for the disposal and recycling of the tub in an eco-friendly manner. Furthermore, Junk Works donates reusable junk to charity, ensuring that the least waste goes into the environment.
