Relaxing in a hot tub can be a good way to unwind from work, chill with friends, or just soak those sore muscles. But what do you do when you want to upgrade to a newer hot tub? Or you purchase a house that comes with a hot tub you know you’ll never use? Hot tub removal can pose a challenge to homeowners as most townships don’t offer hot tub removal pick ups. But luckily, you have a few options ranging from DIY to handing it over to someone else entirely.
Trade It In
If you’re upgrading to a newer hot tub, find out if the manufacturer has a trade in program. Often, they’ll take back the old hot tub to refurbish and re-sell. Or they’ll strip it of all the parts and re-sell the working parts as used. Bonus for you (on top getting your old tub hauled away for little to no cost!): They may give you credit towards purchasing your newer hot tub.
If your hot tub removal is not time sensitive and it still works, try listing it for sale. It might take a while for the right person to find your listing, but if you’re in no rush, you can easily make a few extra bucks this way. Try listing it on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, or Offer Up. And let your friends know; they might take it off your hands or know someone who would. You can even list the hot tub noting the buyer must pick it up–no unnecessary hauling and driving around for you! Or if you have access to a vehicle that can move the hot tub, you can charge a delivery fee.
Break-Down and Recycle It Yourself
This hot tub removal option is not for everyone. But if you have time, ability, some tools, and a little know how, you can break down the hot tub yourself.
Before you start, research how to safely break it down. Disconnect and drain the hot tub completely and remove all lighting fixtures and jets before you start cutting into it. Once you cut the pieces down to a manageable size, you can recycle the parts yourself.
