Avoid Traveling Hot Tub & Swim Spa Expo Shows

Consumer Alert: What’s the scariest place to buy a hot tub or swim spa?

Answer: A traveling hot tub or swim spa expo.

Hot tub and swim spa expos are typically advertised as “national events” and insinuate that all major manufactures are present. However, this is far from the truth. In reality, these expo events are set up quickly and run by high-pressure sales staff who leave town and disappear as soon as the event is over never to be seen again.

Don’t get taken for a ride at the traveling hot tub and swim spa expo. Hold on to your wallet.

You won’t find the world’s number one selling hot tub, Hot Spring Spas, or Presque Isle Hot Tubs at these pop-up expos. Presque Isle Hot Tubs only participates in established, reputable home shows in our service area.

At a traveling expo, the endless aisles are no place to make an informed decision about a relaxation investment of thousands of dollars to last for years to come.

Sales reps want to close deals as fast as they can to earn their commission and keep your deposit. The claims and counterclaims you’ll hear for their products will boggle your mind. In fact, you are likely to hear that if you’re not going to buy today, they can’t help you because they work on commission. They’ll try to sell you what’s on hand, and if you order something like a customer color it could take months for delivery – and that’s if you receive it at all!

Don’t fall for the “this price is only good right now!”

When the “expo” price says 50 percent off, chances are that’s their regular price you’re looking at. Frequently, the expo price is even higher than the regular price, so that the sellers can recoup the high cost of the booth and expenses from you!

Don’t be left without a local company to answer questions and provide service.

One of the main reasons to avoid the traveling expo is because when the event ends the expo leaves too, and often without a local showroom or anyone to answer questions, much less provide service after the sale. That’s no way to buy a hot tub or swim spa.

Take your time when buying a hot tub or swim spa. Take along these 9 questions to get you started:

  1. Do you have brick and mortar showroom in my local area where I can test soak the models I’m interested in?
  2. How long have you been in business? How long has the manufacturer been in business?
  3. Can you provide reference and reviews about your hot tubs and swim spas?
  4. Do you have energy costs for a 4-6 person hot tub used in our area four to five times a week for 30 minutes at a time (the average use period) that has been certified by an independent testing lab?
  5. What options do you have for water care that’s chlorine and bromine free?
  6. What about delivery? Is it driveway drop-off or full service to the exact spot where I want it?
  7. Do you provide your own service or it via a third party?
  8. Can you give me a copy of the warranty for this hot tub or swim spa?
  9. What’s your cancellation policy? Can I get a refund of my deposit if I change my mind?
