1. Price and Lead Times
The shipping of our products is 100% free anywhere in the continental United States (lower 48 states). Delivery normally takes 2-7 business days for in-stock items. If you purchase a customized spa with special finishes and features, the lead time can be closer to 3 months as it will be custom made to your specifications.
Unlike small items and accessories sold by most mainstream Internet stores, spas are bulky and have many parts that require special handling and shipping methods to ensure they arrive in brand-new condition. Because of those special shipping methods, our bathtubs and spas usually take longer than smaller items to ship. Below are approximate delivery times based on location.
- Miami metro area: 2-3 days
- Florida: 4-5 days
- US East coast: 7 working days
- US West coast: 7-10 working days
2. Delivery Options
At Designer Home Spas, we understand the importance of delivering your items safely and efficiently. We offer two types of delivery services to cater to your specific needs: Curbside Delivery and White Glove Delivery.
Our standard delivery option, Curbside Delivery, caters to large and heavy items. With this service, your order will be delivered to the curb at the end of your driveway. Please note that this service does not include setup, assembly of items, or removal of packaging.
Upon arrival, the delivery driver will unload your items and place them in an accessible location outside your home. A representative from our shipping company will contact you in case of an unsuccessful first delivery to arrange a new delivery date. Deliveries are scheduled Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., and a signature is required for every delivery.
We advise you to inspect your items upon delivery and make note of any damages on the delivery receipt. If you choose to refuse delivery due to damages, please write “Refused due to damages” on the delivery receipt.
White Glove Delivery:
For a more comprehensive delivery experience, we offer White Glove Delivery. This service includes package removal, placement of the spa in your desired room or area, as well as assembly of the spa's cabinet if necessary.
Our professional delivery partners will ensure that your items are handled with care and that your space is left clean and tidy upon completion. Like Curbside Delivery, White Glove Delivery requires a signature upon delivery and is available Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Choose the delivery service that best suits your needs, and trust us to provide a professional, polished, and seamless experience.
3. Pre-Installation Tips
So you've decided that you don't want to pay anyone for installation and that you can handle it on your own! We would like to provide a few helpful tips of what you should do prior to installation to make sure everything goes smoothly.
As much as you want to handle the entire installation process on your own, some tasks still need the assistance of a professional. Make sure that you have a level, flat surface that can sustain the spa's weight (when filled) in the area you'd like to place our spa.
Electrical requirements are extremely important! Ensure that the voltage/amps of the hot tub is something that your home can handle, and if it can’t you will need the assistance of a professional electrician. If you do not possess the proper training and knowledge, do not attempt any of these jobs as the consequences could be dire.
Measure Your Space Before Ordering
Put that measuring tape to good use and get the dimensions of the space where you will be fitting your hot tub. Once you have these measurements, cross reference them with the minimum dimensions needed for our spa. This information can be found in the technical specification sheet or installation guide for the product in the key documents section of our website.
While you still have that measuring tape handy, check the width and height of all your doorways leading to the room where the hot tub will be installed. If the spa cannot fit through the doors leading to your desired area, it cannot be installed there! Some spas will also need an extra few inches for access panels and faucet installation, so keep that in mind when choosing the right size for space.
Before signing for the shipment and releasing the driver, please carefully inspect the shipment for any visible damage.
