Why it Pays to Hire Pros to Move Your Hot Tub

One of the undeniable truths about hot tub ownership is that these basins are a pain in the neck (and possibly the back) to move. When you first purchase a hot tub, you witness this nuisance firsthand: great strides have to be made in order to get your hot tub delivered, and usually by a team of qualified delivery guys.

When you’re moving, the routine is no different: your hot tub will get special consideration during the moving process, due mostly to its bulk. When a representative from your moving company arrives to take an on-site estimation of your home, the hot tub will be specially noted in his or her assessment, and for good reason: lifting a hot tub without proper experience and equipment could be disastrous. In order to avoid a broken hot tub, or a broken back, you’ll need your moving company to help you with the heavy lifting.

It doesn’t matter if you’re staying in the same area or moving from state to state; you’ll be much better off in the long run if you make sure to protect your hot tub with expert care. Don’t try moving it yourself, as this could cause tremendous bodily harm. Having professionals tackle the job may seem costly upfront, but it’s good to remind yourself that this is an investment in the life of the hot tub you purchased…and also an investment in your own health (should something go wrong if you take the DIY method in moving your hot tub). Protect yourself as much as possible, and let the pros do what they do best.

Why You Should Purchase a Claims Package

No one wants to think about what could go wrong during a move. We all want to be able to trust our movers to the highest degree, and see all our boxes and furniture arriving safely in our new place, unharmed. And yet, unfortunately, sometimes accidents happen. Movers are only human, so they are capable of making mistakes. When this happens,it’s important to have a full valuable claims package in place with your movers, so that you are able to claim a full refund for any items damaged during the move.

You may have heard that all your items are covered by a moving company’s insurance when taken into their care, and you’re correct. Moving companies are required by law to have protections in place for their customers’ items, but only at sixty cents per pound of items transported. So, in the event of an accident, your things will be covered only that much. When you first book your move, you have the option to add full valuation protection, which covers your household goods 100% in the event of an accident.

Should you get the full valuation insurance? Why is it important, if the moving company has their own insurance policy in place? Well, to answer these questions, you need to take a look around your home or office and think about your things. If everything you owned was damaged, how would you feel about receiving less than a dollar for each pound? If this is a chance you feel comfortable taking, go right ahead. However, if replacing everything you own would pack more of a punch in your moving budget than simply paying a little extra for security, a full valuation claims package is the right option for you.

Nine times out of ten, it’s better to be safe than sorry. It’s a choice you will have to make, but spend a lot of time thinking about which direction you want to take, as this decision must be made at the time of booking, and cannot be added on later.
