Junk Removal Advice:
It’s time to get rid of that old, ugly hot tub! If you are wondering about the cost associated with the removal process, then you have come to the right place. We will compile a list of services that are available in your area so you can compare prices and decide what is best for your budget.
On average, it costs $250-350 to remove a hot tub, depending on the size of the hot tub and the intricacies of demolishing it if it’s an above-ground or below-ground hot tub.
Many homeowners try to do the removal themselves, but it is far better if you hire a professional. Hot tubs can be quite heavy and difficult to maneuver without proper tools and equipment. It’s not worth risking your safety or damaging valuable property trying to save some money! Even though hiring out may appear more expensive upfront, it will actually cost less in the long run because of damage that could have been avoided! Plus, many insurance companies do NOT cover hot tub removals at all because they are considered too dangerous for most people. If something were to happen during the process (and this does happen often), then their policy would be void after paying out on any claims made by an uninsured homeowner. This leads us to how much it costs to have a hot tub removed.
The cost to have a hot tub removed will vary depending on where you live and which kind of company is providing the service. Some common services include: removing the deck, taking out the concrete slab underneath, hauling it away for disposal, and filling in any holes made by digging during removal. These jobs may be done separately or as part of one complete package. Depending on your geographical location, some companies charge by volume while others charge per hour with an estimated total provided upfront before starting work.
Let’s say that you are living in Naples Florida. Here are our best estimates based on what we found September 2021:
Using a flatbed truck – $450-600
Removing the concrete slab – $400-500
Filling in the hole left behind by digging out concrete slab -$150-250 (depending on how big your tub is)
Deck removal and disposal – $200-300 (we believe this includes hauling it away as well, but you should confirm with them first if desired).
The average hot tub weighs between 900 pounds to over 1200 pounds. If they can’t reach you or access where your tub is located then expect an additional premium for that! Some companies may charge extra for recycling depending on what type of chemicals are inside so be sure to ask before signing any work contracts. Be aware of scams though because some people will try selling used tubs as new! If the hot tub is in poor condition, then it may be cheaper to have it replaced rather than removed.
