How to prepare a hot or spa tub for transportation on a pallet

When shipping a hot tub on a pallet, we recommend you follow the next steps:

  1. Drain the hot tub and remove the remaining water, when shipping a used tub.
  2. Secure your hot tub by wrapping it in bubble wrap, plastic foil, cardboard sheets, and other cushioning materials.
  3. Place the hot tub sideways central on the pallet.
  4. Cover the tub with blankets to protect from scratches and bumps during transportation.
  5. Fix the hot tub or spa with pallet straps tight to the pallet.

How to pack hot tub and spa accessories for shipping

When you want to send hot tub or spa’s accessories like a cover lifter, blankets, towels, pillows or any other item, follow these tips to pack them properly:

  1. Pack all the tub’s accessories separately. Cover the item with bubble wrap.
  2. Place the textile items in a plastic bag to protect them from dust or moisture.
  3. Nest the item into a cardboard box. Fill the voids with cushioning materials like packaging peanuts or paper.
  4. Seal the box with several layers of adhesive tape on each side of the package.

FAQs on how to move hot tubs, jacuzzi or barrel saunas internationally

What is the best way to move hot tubs across Europe?
The best option for transporting hot tubs within the EU is by booking the Van service. This hot tub relocation service is the fastest way to transport it from one location to the other. The shipment will be transported directly without stop-overs and there will be no space shared with the belongings of any other customer.
Do I need to help the driver to load and unload the hot tub to the van or truck?
With Eurosender, you do not need to worry about safety, as we have that part very well covered! For freight shipments booked through Eurosender, you will be covered according to the CMR conventions, and you can add additional insurance by communicating this with our agents.
Will I get assistance when moving a rowing machine?
When booking the van service, you can choose the additional services for loading or unloading the van. When transporting a hot tub, jacuzzi, or any other heavy loads, you can request extra assistance during the booking or collection.
How to pack a hot tub for transportation with the van service?
Generally, you don’t need to do any special packaging, as you can place your items directly in the van. However, we recommend packing the hot tub before the driver’s arrival for their extra protection during transport.
Can I transport a hot tub on its side?
Yes, a hot tub can be transported on its side, but you need to prepare the tub or jacuzzi for moving it safely. Follow our guidelines to protect the tub for transportation and avoid any damages.
How much does it cost to move a jacuzzi by courier?
The cost of shipping a jacuzzi or a hot tub always depends on the size and weight of the item, shipping destination and the service chosen. Eurosender offers jacuzzi and hot tub relocation services at the lowest cost on the market. Check our prices for standard or pallet shipping directly with the booking tool, or request an individual offer and our experts will send you quotes by email.
How heavy is an empty hot tub? Can I move a hot tub by myself?
In general, a small hot tub weighs around 230 kg empty, while a six-person jacuzzi or regular hot tub typically weighs approximately 450 kg empty. It is not recommended moving a hot tub or jacuzzi alone. Ask for the help of two or three friends or ask for additional help when boking the relocation service.
Can I move a sauna on a pallet?
The best way to move a barrel sauna is to ship it unassembled. In this way, you can organise a barrel sauna delivery on a pallet or in a crate when transporting overseas. If you are shipping an infrared sauna cabin within Europe, the best option is booking the Van service and have the sauna delivered directly to the destination.
