ALTERATIONS TO T&C’S DURING COVID19 OUTBREAK
Due to the Covid19 outbreak we will no longer be accepting cash on the day. Payment in full will be required over the telephone at booking. As the situation is changing daily and we are monitoring the advice from government closely, if we are unable to fulfil your relocation, disposal, service or repair due to any travel restrictions that may be put into place this will be communicated with you as quickly as possible. Payment will be held and jobs booked back into the diary once restrictions are lifted. T&C’s regarding cancellations of any other nature remain unaltered as stated below. If we have ordered parts for you full payment will be retained and booked back into the diary at the earliest possible date once restrictions have been lifted also. Exceptions do apply at the discretion of the office, please speak to a member of the team for clarification who can confirm this via email
Customers are to remain indoors whilst our engineers are onsite. If there is an issue the engineers will call the office and a member of the office team will call you directly inside your home
It is especially important during this time that you ensure access is clear at both pick up and drop off. As the customer this is your responsibility even if you do not reside at the pick up or drop off address. This is to limit the time spent onsite and to avoid any issues. Please ensure gates, fences and any other obstacles are removed prior to our engineers arriving and resurrected once we have left
Please ensure that any other potential issues are communicated with our office staff prior to our attendance to ensure that we are correctly prepared. Failure to do so will result in the loss of your deposit and any time spent onsite.
Please ensure for the safety of you and your family, our team and the wider community that the above is adhered to at all times. We reserve the right to leave site immediately if we feel that the safety of our team has been compromised in any way and full payment will be forfeited as a result.
Relocation – Terms and Conditions

There is a £25 charge for removal of lifting devices or accessories and £25 charge for refitting at drop off. We are limited to Hot Tubs of 2.5×2.5m if your tub exceeds this please let us know. If the Hot Tub exceeds 2.3×2.3 we will need to send a third engineer and/or will require assistance from an able-bodied person at both the pick-up and drop off address. Please communicate this to us at booking. If the Hot tub is sat in any form of housing, sunken into decking or has a gazebo over it, we will require photographs to confirm that we can remove it. Additional time to remove is charged at £40 per hour for two engineers
Please let us know if your spa is any of the following brands:
Jacuzzi, Artic Spa, Coast Spa, Premier spa As well as dimensions we may also require dry weight
If fence panels, gates or any other structure needs to be removed in order to allow access, please make sure this is done prior to our team arriving. If you must remove structures to get the spa in or out of the properties on the day you will be charged for the extra time at £40.00 per hour. If you require assistance, we do not accept liability for any damage caused to such structures in this event and it is at the engineer’s discretion on the day as to whether we are able to assist with this. You may be asked to sign a disclaimer in any instance in which we believe damage to spa, property or persons may be incurred. Failure to remove structures or sign disclaimer will result in the job being cancelled onsite and full amount is payable on the day

We reserve the right to retain deposit should you wish to cancel or postpone at any point after booking due to such issues which are out of our control. If you are aware of such issues but do not communicate this to us and we arrive at the property and are unable to relocate the spa due to this, then we reserve the right to request the full amount which is payable on the day

We operate between 8am – 6pm. We do not allocate time slots. We may be able to give you an indication of time of arrival at the pick up address at booking but this is not exact and is an estimation. We will update you throughout the day where we can but please ensure somebody is at home or that we have access to the tub between these times on the day. If any of the above information is relevant to your booking then please let us know as soon as possible. Please note: If you cancel within 48hrs before the job is due to commence (2 working days) which does not include out of hours Mon-Fri 9:30-5pm we reserve the right to retain the £180.00 deposit.

This is a contractual agreement and by paying us the deposit you are entering into the agreement
Any communication regarding the above should be delivered to the office via telephone conversation or via email within office hours and with sufficient notice as detailed above. Whatsapp, text message, eBay, Gumtree or Facebook messages are not a sufficient or reliable method of communication and Transport a Tub do not accept liability for information that is missed due to being sent in this way

We also offer a commissioning service providing your electrics are in place which entails us getting your spa up and running once in place. The price for this is £150.00 and must be specified at time of booking so that the time slots can be allocated accordingly. We also stock high quality chemical starter kits which can be added at time of booking. Packs include test strips, chlorine, PH +, PH -, and foam away. We cannot recommend these highly enough as chemicals purchased alongside second hand spas are not always within their best before date and this can compromise the sanitisation of your water. Chemical starter packs are £55.00 per pack and will last you approximately 3 months. Hot tub flush is a chemical we also recommend purchasing when buying a used spa as this will thoroughly flush any debris, scale and body fats that you cannot reach through cleaning alone from behind the jets, pipework and major components.
