Has your hot tub fallen into disuse due to old age, disinterest, or disrepair? Or is it an unwanted fixture in your new home?
Attempting a hot tub removal all on your lonesome could land you in some hot water. The process can be dangerous, leading to sprains and serious back injuries when done incorrectly. Even if you can find some friends who are willing to help you, hot tub removal can be tricky. It’s a labor-intensive process that requires professional dismantling and quite a bit of heavy lifting.
Bring in the Junk King pros to haul your tub a way to make room for your next big project for the space. We also offer yard clean-up services, meaning we can leave your yard looking as good and new.
What Can You Do With An Old Hot Tub?
Getting rid of an old hot tub isn’t as easy as taking out the trash. For one, they’re nearly impossible to move on your own. If DIY is your thing, removing a hot tub from your backyard is essentially free – if you don’t factor in the time required. Some people opt to carve up their hot tubs into small pieces and dispose of them through regular garbage removal services.
But this isn’t a great idea for several reasons. Hot tubs are built to last a lifetime or 20 years, at the very least. Essentially, you may be destroying something that could be of value to another person. It’s also the least environmentally friendly method of disposal. Instead, consider trading it to a dealer, selling it online, or recycling it at a local scrapyard. Also, you can always hire a junk removal company to help remove it. Junk King professionals will come to your home and haul away your tub – no questions asked!
One more thing, not all hot tubs are freestanding. Some tubs are secured by concrete, and using a pickaxe and sledgehammer to break them up could damage your concrete and your water lines. In this case, working with a professional is your best bet. We have the skill and experience to dismantle and haul away your old tub without causing any damage to your property.
As an added bonus, we recycle or donate as much as we can. And this is why your hot tub won’t end up in a landfill unless it’s the only option.

How To Prepare For Hot Tub Removal?
To get your hot tub or Jacuzzi ready for removal, there are a few things you’ll need to do ahead of time:
- Disconnect the power supply
- Unhook all the tub’s electrical wires
- Drain the water; if your tub doesn’t have a drain, you can manually pump the water out
- Disconnect the plumbing lines

And, we take all hot-tub related junk:

Common Questions Regarding Our Hot Tub Removal Services
Does hot tub removal include the cost of disposal?
Price is a key factor when choosing a hot tub disposal company. Most junk removal firms build the cost of disposal into the price, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll do this all the time. Be sure to confirm this before agreeing to an estimate.
With Junk King, there are no hidden costs. We provide free estimates that include the cost of both removal and disposal. What’s more, we don’t charge by weight. We’ll only charge you for the volume your tub takes up in our truck as opposed to charging you for the whole truck. Doing so allows us to save you money and provide the best customer service possible.
Can you remove a hot tub from a backyard?
Yes, we can. We may need to dismantle the tub before loading it onto our trucks, depending on how big it is or how accessible your yard is. Dismantling is a great solution as it also eliminates any need to remove fencing or gates.
We’re professionals and have been moving hot tubs from backyards for years. Our team can navigate all types of yards, no matter how limited the space.
Can I cut up a hot tub with a chainsaw?
No. It’s best to leave the job of dismantling a hot tub to a professional junk removal business. Also, the acrylic shell most hot tubs are made of is likely to wear out your chainsaw before you make much progress. There’s also the issue of debris being dislodged at fast speeds, which could cause serious injury.
If you’re tired of seeing your old tub taking up space in your yard, get in touch with the Junk King team. We’ll get rid of it for you safely and efficiently.
What types of hot tubs do you take?
Junk King hauls hot tubs of every size and shape. There’s no such thing as a job that’s too big or too small for us. It doesn’t matter if you have an oversized tub in your backyard. Just gives us a heads up so we can bring a team large enough to haul it.
