Final Placement & Assembly service - a detailed breakdown of what you'll get
Our Placement & Assembly service is generally preferred by those customers who aren’t too keen to call on their DIY skills to fit the last bits on their hot tub, or can't call in friends or neighbours to lend a hand.
This optional service provides peace of mind before the tub is ready to fill. There are still some tasks for you to complete on your property beforehand, though.
The Placement & Assembly crew will bring your hot tub to its final location, provided there are no obstacles that need dismantling.
The Placement & Assembly service will not include the base preparation or choosing the place for your hot tub. Gardenvity can only offer detailed advice on a suitable location, materials and safety. Read more.
The optional Placement & Assembly service added to Gardenvity's standard free kerbside delivery option will ensure that your hot tub will be set up by the experts who will hand it over to you ready to fill. We've structured this article into three main parts:

2. The importance of your cooperation.
Communication is critical to enable us to deliver the best service to you. Our helpful staff members will work day in and out to obtain the necessary details from you and inform the final placement & assembly crew.
It is still your responsibility to choose the spot for your hot tub and prepare the base for it.
We will ask you to take pictures and videos of the intended location for your hot tub as well as the planned trajectory to move the unit. You will be asked to provide precise measurements of the pathways or passages that will be used when moving the hot tub to your garden.
We must know about every obstacle on the way to your garden - steps, slopes, gates, fences, overhanging tree branches, etc. You will need to arrange the removal (dismantling) of any immovable obstacles (gates, fences, etc.).
You will need to arrange a crane if those obstacles cannot be removed and settle the costs for its operation. We may be able to suggest a crane operator and make the necessary arrangements with them in some parts of the UK.
3. What else do you need to know about the delivery?
