Every year we see Hot Tub and Spa Sales come through town advertising huge discounts at the fairgrounds.
“Save 40% – 80% off a new Hot Tub, this weekend only!”
“We’re required to sell at least 1,000 Hot Tubs this weekend! No reasonable offer will be denied!”
The truth is, these prices are artificially inflated and then discounted to about what the retail price should be.
These traveling shows offer a few hot tub models with limited colors and material options…and won’t be around next week if something goes wrong.
Consider the investment you are making in a hot tub or swim spa, and the life cycle of the product. A quality hot tub will last as long as a car, if not longer. It will require service and maintenance. There are parts that may need to be replaced.
Who will replace these parts?
The purchase of a hot tub or swim spa is not a decision you should make in the environment of a fairgrounds sale.
There are high quality hot tubs built using the best jets and materials, which can last years when properly maintained…there are also lower quality products using jets that will have more problems and plastic furnishings that warp over time.
How much do you know about hot tubs? Can you tell the difference just by looking at a few choices in an afternoon?
Your local dealer will offer similar pricing for a superior hot tub and will still be in town after your hot tub has been installed. When you buy from a local dealer you know you’ll have the peace of mind for the duration of your hot tub ownership. Even if the fairground sale offered a better price, the quality of the hot tub would not be the same and the service you receive in the future would be through the manufacturer, not a local company.
