The Dangers of Buying from a Spa Expo

Is a spa expo coming to your town?

Low prices, lots of inventory and a fun shopping experience. What’s not to love about the idea of buying a hot tub from a spa expo? Unfortunately, there are many dangers of buying from a spa expo and red flags that you should be watching for.

Reasons to Avoid a Spa Expo

Before attending the hot tub and swim spa expo that’s in town for the weekend, there are a few areas of concern that you should first familiarize yourself with. Especially before spending thousands of dollars on an investment in your home, health and leisure.

Low-Quality Brands

Often, spa expos that travel from town to town for a week or weekend at a time are not affiliated with reputable brands. While this isn’t always the case, they often are offering cheaper hot tubs with outdated technology.

While a lower price point can be tempting, by putting a little more money behind your investment you can look forward to many enjoyable years of hydrotherapy, and less spent on repairs.

Little to No Research

When you’re attending a spa expo, there is little time to conduct industry research. Generally when you make a significant purchase, such as a car or other large expense, you will perform some test drives of different options, speak with a range of experts, research online, and take time to mull things over.

When you’re looking at hot tubs and swim spas at an expo, you are unfortunately limited in the amount of time there is to perform research and explore all of your options. This may result in a rushed shopping experience with a “now or never” atmosphere.

Aftercare and Warranty

With any major investment, it’s important to look into the aftercare and warranty options that are available.

With a spa expo, it’s less likely that a local service and maintenance center nearby will be able to assist you with your spa purchase when it’s time for a repair or cleaning. Not only can this end up costing you more money in the long run, but it also makes it more difficult to facilitate a repair or maintenance when you need it most.

Many hot tubs and swim spas sold at spa expos do not come with a decent warranty, if a warranty at all. If something were to be damaged or require a replacement that would often be covered by warranty, this can cause quite the headache down the road.

Reasons to Buy from a Reputable Dealership

While the thrill of purchasing an impromptu spa or saving money on the initial cost can be elusive, we promise that the benefits of making an informed decision and choosing to invest in this significant purchase will pay off for many enjoyable years to come.
