Are you looking to get rid of a hot tub or spa from your yard? If you'd rather get the job done safely and with the minimum of fuss, you'll want to consider your options for a spa removal service.

Read on to get the lowdown on spa removal services, including what you can do to prepare for one.

What is spa removal service?

A spa removal service is, as its name suggests, a service where you get professionals to dismantle, remove and dispose of your spa. The process usually involves heavy lifting, electrical wiring and power tools. Therefore, it can be a tricky and potentially dangerous project for a homeowner to undertake themselves.

With this type of service, a spa removal team will arrive at your house and safely shut off, drain, disassemble and break apart the tub into manageable pieces. They will do all the heavy lifting of tub components and will take the whole tub to a proper disposal site.

When should I use a spa removal service?

A spa removal service is useful at any time you decide that you no longer want your tub. If you want a spa moved from one location to another, you're looking for a spa delivery brand. That said, spa removal companies will often include moving services too.

How do I compare spa removal services?

You can find local spa removal services in a business directory or on an online task site like Airtasker or Oneflare. Once you've found a few well-rated services in your area, reach out to obtain a quote. Compare prices and what is included in each service.

How much does a spa removal cost?

The average cost of a spa removal service is around $200 per job, according to Airtasker. However, quotes can increase to around $400 for larger jobs. The cost to remove your spa will be dependent on its size, whether it's above ground or not and how difficult it is to access. Be sure to check exactly what is and isn't included in any quotes you're comparing.

Do I need to be there when my spa is picked up for removal?

While you may not need to be present for the actual removal process, you might well need to be there to let the removal team in and out of the house. If you plan on leaving the house during the removal, make sure the team has access to the spa area and a clear path to their truck.

What does a spa removal include and not include?

A spa removal service involves removing and disposing of your spa. The company may offer other services, like spa relocation or spa installation, but they are not typically included in spa removal.

Typically included

  • The tub gets taken apart
  • The tub is cut into moveable pieces
  • If necessary, the company will arrange a crane to lift the tub
  • The company will load the disassembled tub into a truck
  • The pieces will be disposed of properly
  • Most companies will clean up any debris or dust left behind.

Typically not included

  • Moving the tub to your new pad (unless you choose this as an add-on)
  • Installing a new spa
  • Repairing a deck or floor where the tub sat.

Pros and cons of spa removal services

Pros

  • Saves the risk of injury
  • Saves you time and bother
  • You won't have to rent a truck or find a disposal site.

Cons

  • More expensive than removing the spa yourself
  • You may need to be home for the removal.

Bottom Line

Hiring a professional team to remove your spa is a good bit easier and less dangerous than trying to figure it out for yourself. Sure, it'll cost you, but it may well be worth the price if it means it'll save your Saturday.

Frequently asked questions

Can I hire someone to move the spa instead of disposing of it?

Spa removal companies typically offer spa relocation and installation as well. Specify what kind of service you need when you request a quote.

What if I need other junk removed as well?

Rubbish removal companies will dispose of many kinds of unwanted materials, including appliances, furniture and waste. When requesting this type of service, be as specific as possible about your needs to get an accurate quote.

Can I get my spa removed today?

Some removalists offer same-day service if you book early enough in the day. It depends on how booked the company is and how long it will take to remove your particular spa. To schedule on a day that is convenient for you, consider booking at least a couple of weeks in advance.

How should I prepare my spa for removal?

Your chosen removalists will tell you the exact steps to follow. You may need to disconnect your spa from its power source. But it's best to await instructions from the experts.
