When buying a hot tub online instead of from a retail store, one expects lower prices, but what happens if something goes wrong?
It pays to buy directly from a hot tub manufacturer’s distributor rather than a no-name person selling someone else’s wares on the internet. A hot tub is a higher priced investment and even a discount hot tub should come with a guarantee and a source to turn to in case of problems.
There is no better source than the factory trained technicians employed by the actual hot tub manufacturer. They are factory trained and know their product very well. The manufacturer will be able to ship out almost any part needed if something does go wrong with a trained technician to assist in troubleshooting and replacement.
A reputable hot tub manufacturer with a distributor operating an online ecommerce store will help customers after the sale – often more than a sales person from a retail store or worse an online vendor that is not affiliated with the actual hot tub factory.
Also beware of online sellers that hide costly upgrades until after you are within the purchasing process. Many times unscrupulous online sellers will hoodwink buyers into taking items that were already included on the spa to begin with and collecting extra money as costly options.
It pays to compare “apples to apples” when shopping for a spa. Some things to consider are the quality of the shell material, the features including number of jets, horsepower and flow of pumps as well as soundness of the structure and cabinet.
Getting a discount hot tub online can pay buyers in the form of huge discounts, so just make sure to deal with a factory owned ecommerce site for maximum after sales support.
