Moving Preparation - May 6, 2021
You will run into so many challenges during your moving process. Whether they are delays or lack of assistance, you can overcome many of these challenges. But, you have to plan everything properly and organize the relocation well enough in order to do so. For instance, if you want to handle moving your hot tub, you should definitely get help from long-distance movers Texas. These professionals will have the experience and equipment which is necessary for this moving task. So, let’s get started and give you some tips from our crew on how to overcome this moving challenge!
Moving your hot tub – how to do it right?
To prepare your hot tub for the move, first, you have to prepare it. Draining your hot tub isn’t as simple as you might think. You can’t just dump the water outside like you would with a bucket! To do this right, you should look at the manual and the manufacturers’ instructions. Most often, they will ask you to use a garden hose to get the water out. But, be careful – dumping so much water in your backyard can really damage the grass around it. That is why you should try to pump out the water near a street gutter. Once you fully drain the hot tub, wipe it down with an all-purpose cleaner to ensure there is no gunk inside.
Then, you’ll have to find the right movers that can transport it. Look at a few different moving quotes Fort Worth to see which company will offer the best price that suits your budget. Let them know what you need to transport, so they can bring enough people and moving dollies to make transport easier. Also, discuss the moving route with the crew. Sometimes, the hot tub won’t fit through openings and you have to figure out the best way to get it safely to your new home.
If you can, disassemble the jacuzzi before you move it
As with any large furniture or appliances (or when you’re moving a piano), it’s always better if you can take it apart before moving. Of course, that’s not always possible, but at least try to separate every piece that can be removed. With a hot tub, this will probably be cables, a rain cover, and so on. When you remove them, the movers will have an easier time transporting them to and from the truck.
Don’t forget to label everything, so you can easily put it back together at your new place! If you’re still not sure how to transport your hot tub, get in touch with our team. We can make sure it arrives safely at the destination!
