The Best Reasons for Shopping Local vs. Shopping at a Traveling Hot Tub Expo

When it comes to buying a hot tub, are you wondering if there’s a difference between shopping local vs. buying one from a hot tub expo? It’s a good question because, even with the various health and social benefits hot tubs offer, there’s a lot to consider before you make the purchase. Chief among them: the cost. Then you get one of those flyers in the mail that says, “Save Big at The Spa Expo! One weekend only!” At the same time, there’s a local dealer like Fronheiser in your area. Which do you choose? When it comes to buying a hot tub, shopping local is much safer than purchasing from a traveling hot tub expo. 

The Reality of Buying from a Hot Tub Expo

What you can anticipate with those supposed “blowout” savings includes encountering high-pressure sales tactics. These salespeople won’t allow you the time to inspect, contemplate, and plan, as they’ll swiftly move on to the next location, repeating the same deceptive practices on unsuspecting individuals. Furthermore, the claimed savings are not as substantial as they advertise. Unfortunately, the markup on hot tubs is insufficient to significantly reduce the price and still yield a profit. Choosing a reputable local dealer such as Fronheiser Pools not only provides a comparable (if not better) price but also includes all the necessary service and support you deserve post-purchase. Also, don’t expect any installation and maintenance support from a hot tub expo. When you buy from such an event, the spa is essentially dropped off in your front yard. Setting it up becomes your responsibility. A trustworthy hot tub dealer, on the other hand, specializes in the specific spa brands they carry. Consequently, opting for a hot tub from an expo means you won’t have a nearby expert available to handle warranty repairs, guide you on operating and caring for your spa, and manage ongoing maintenance and repairs.
