Hot tub movers charge $150 to $400 for on-property moves and $300 to $1,000 for longer-distance moving. The cost to transport a hot tub depends mostly on its size, weight, and whether the movers will have to go up or down any stairs.
Local moving companies usually charge $25 to $50 per hour per mover, so the average job will cost $75 to $150 per hour for three movers or $100 to $200 per hour for four movers. If the moving company charges by weight, they may charge more if the tub weighs more than a certain amount.
Moving a hot tub typically takes 1 to 5 hours, depending on its weight, distance, and whether it’s freestanding or inground. Moving it to a new spot on your property takes less time than moving across town or to a new home.
The amount of people required to move a hot tub depends on its size and weight. Moving a six-person hot tub typically requires 4 to 6 people or more. Professional movers sometimes have specialized equipment that allows them to handle the task with fewer people.
You can get your hot tub ready for moving by draining or pumping out the water, wiping it down, and disconnecting the main power from the tub. Remeber to be cautious when handling any electrical wiring or plumbing connections.
Moving a hot tub is worth it if you want to keep using it but are moving to a new location or would rather use it in a different part of your property. If your hot tub is not in working condition, consider removing or replacing it rather than paying to transport it only to repair or replace it later on.
