Where Do I Buy a Hot Tub?

If you’re looking for a great way to slow down, relax, and soothe sore muscles, adding a hot tub to your home could be the perfect option for you. Once you have decided to commit to purchasing a hot tub, the next question is, where do you buy your hot tub?

How you choose to buy your hot tub is going to vary compared to the next person.  Are you a previous owner or a first-time buyer?  An experienced owner is most likely able to navigate through the buying process a little easier than a first-time buyer because they already have a good idea of what they are looking for.  A new buyer might need someone there to help them through the steps of adding a new hot tub and should definitely buy at a local hot tub dealership.

Some people prefer the convenience of shopping online or over the phone while others want to do a test run in person before purchasing, something which we recommend regardless if you’re bought one hot tub before or several.

Ultimately, buying a hot tub shouldn’t add to your stress; it should be taking it away. Here are your hot tub purchasing options to make sure you are finding and buying the best hot tub with the least amount of work.

Buy a Hot Tub Online

Have social anxiety or just don’t want to talk to anyone today?  Then buying online can be an option for you.

The convenience of buying online is unparalleled — you can do it at midnight in your pajamas with no one is there to judge you and without having to spend time traveling to and from a local dealer.  By researching different hot tubs, you can compare options and prices and make sure you are getting the best deal possible, all without having to leave the comfort of your living room.

If none of your friends are hot tub owners, you will want to turn to the internet to help give you answers.

According to a study, 84% of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation. Reading between one to six online reviews can help you form an opinion about an online product or brand. Online reviews matter.  They help establish trust in the product and reassure you on the quality of your purchase.

That said, there’s a difference between shopping for a hot tub online and buying a hot tub online.  Not many folks buy a hot tub online, though researching your next HotSpring hot tub online before stepping into a dealer is reasonable.

Buy a Hot Tub Over the Phone

Yes, people still buy things on the phone!  Though the desire to buy anything on the phone is slowly disappearing for most people, it could be a good option for someone who doesn’t want to leave the house, but still needs the advice of an expert.  A phone call allows you to have a conversation about the hot tub without having to waste time traveling from showroom to showroom.

Unfortunately, buying a hot tub through the phone doesn’t give you the chance to test out the new hot tub, nor does it give you a whole lot of information that you can compare in front of you (like you can do online). The first time you will be seeing the hot tub will be when it arrives at your front door. Some people do not feel comfortable or confident spending that much money on something they have never seen, so they might want to go to a store first to check it out.

Buy a Hot Tub at a Local Dealer

Buying in-store at either your local dealer or one of our stores in Tyler or Longview, Texas, allows you to share your motives and needs with a knowledgeable representative at the store.  The representative can help you choose what it is best for you, knowing how much space you have in your home and what you are planning on using your hot tub for.

For example, when new customers arrive at one of our HotSpring showrooms, a representative will spend time making sure they understand your needs. You can even have a look at the product and perform a wet test to make sure it is what you want to ensure that there are no surprises when the hot tub arrives on your doorstep.

Ultimately, buying a hot tub at a local dealer is your best bet for a variety of reasons.  You can quickly compare models, ask questions directly to an experienced representative, and you’ll have local support if something ever goes wrong.  Plus, there are delivery options to consider with hot tubs, something that can be hard to arrange over the phone or through the internet.
