Like with any other high-value item or accessory you’re considering the purchase of, it pays to do your research as you investigate your options for a new hot tub. You’ll want to be asking several questions of hot tub professionals and installers during this process, and knowing the right areas to inquire about can make a big difference as you look for the ideal hot tub for your needs — at an affordable cost.
At Hot Tub Factory Outlet, we take pride in the time we spend answering client questions regarding any of our high-quality hot tubs, offered to clients throughout SLC and other nearby areas. What are some of the top areas you should be inquiring about during this process? This two-part blog series will go over several to keep in mind.
Questions About Dealer History and Reputation
First and foremost, it pays to ask about a hot tub dealer’s history. How long have they been in business? What is their general reputation in the community, and can you find any online reviews of their products or services? Any reputable hot tub store should be able to answer these questions without hesitation – and if they can’t, that may be a red flag.
Additionally, ask about the experience of the salespeople and installers who will be helping you. Do they have any specific training in hot tubs? Can they answer your questions in a comprehensive and helpful manner? The answers to these questions can give you some valuable insight into whether or not this is the right team to trust with your purchase.
Ask About Brands
Another important area of inquiry has to do with the brands that a hot tub dealer carries. Do they sell a wide variety of brands, or just one or two? Are they authorized dealers for the brands they sell? If so, what does that entail?
Asking about specific brands can also be helpful. What are the pros and cons of each brand? How do the hot tubs from different brands compare to each other in terms of features and price?
The actual hot tub you purchase is vital, of course, but so is the level of support you can expect after the sale. What kind of warranty does the hot tub come with? Are there any other services offered, such as delivery and installation, maintenance and repair? For instance, themes like water care or winterization?
Asking these questions can help you get a better sense of what to expect from a hot tub dealer, both before and after your purchase. In our next blog post, we’ll go over a few more key areas of inquiry to keep in mind. Stay tuned!
