If you’re hot tub shopping and doing your research, you’ll come across a number of articles online urging you not to purchase a hot tub at a home show.
We disagree, so long as you follow some simple guidelines. After all, home shows are fun! It’s a SHOW – enjoy the sights and sounds, the crowds, the refreshments, the entertainment, and with some savvy shopping – a great deal on a hot tub.
Why are we encouraging this, when so many people don’t? Here’s why:
- At a home show, you can often find deep discounts on even the most popular hot tubs and swim spas.
- Vendors bring a wide variety of hot tubs and swim spas, so you can easily compare models, features and brands.
- Vendors staff well for these events, so you won’t have any trouble getting your questions answered.
There IS one important consideration about shopping at home shows that we want you to keep in mind: Shop around. Compare. But when it’s time to buy, buy from a LOCAL dealer you can trust.
Sometimes traveling vendors will set up at home shows, too. Look at what they have to offer so you can compare features and prices, but don’t buy from them. Eventually, you will have questions about your new spa. You may need service down the road, or need an issue addressed. These traveling companies are notorious for being difficult to impossible to contact after the sale.
You don’t want that, and we don’t want that for you.
One other thing – before you go, browse all the hot tubs and swim spas we offer to get an idea of what you’re looking for. A little pre-work will also help you filter through the wide variety of models on offer at the show and hone in on exactly what you’re looking for.
So head on down to the show. ENJOY yourself. And then, buy from a dealer you can depend on.
