If you’re moving or just need to store your hot tub for awhile, you’ll need the right storage solution. Affordable Family Storage has plenty of storage solutions available that can perfectly fit your hot tub. But before you bring it to the facility, you’ll need to make sure you get it ready for storage. In today’s blog, the experts at Affordable Family Storage in Topeka explain how to properly prepare a hot tub for storage.
Before doing anything, you should remove the hot tub from the power source and turn off the power at the breaker box. You don’t want it connected to any electricity while you’re working with it. Once you’re sure the electric connections are safely removed, you can move on to the next step.
You need to completely drain your hot tub of all water. Obviously you won’t be able to move a full hot tub to your storage unit. If you don’t plan on putting your hot tub in a climate controlled storage solution, you need to make sure the tub is completely dry. Otherwise you risk the water freezing in the colder months and ruining your hot tub. We recommend choosing a climate controlled storage solution to ensure your valuable property is safely stored.
To keep dust out and keep your hot tub clean during storage, it’s a good idea to use a cover. It’ll also help to protect it during the move. You may also want to consider some moving blankets for extra cushioning. The last thing you’d want to do is damage your expensive hot tub during the move.
To move a hot tub, you’re definitely going to need some help. If you choose to move it yourself, it’s best to get at least two or three friends to help out. Another good solution is to hire a moving company to take care of it. This saves you the time and effort. Luckily, Affordable Family Storage has drive up storage solutions, so once you get it in the truck it’s fairly easy to get it into the storage unit.
