Showroom / Local Distributor

Purchasing walk in tubs after seeing it within a showroom is a very popular way to make a walk in tub purchase. Showrooms generally only have one model on display that will fit within the space of a traditional bathtub. That does not mean they do not have additional options so be sure to ask about all available options. Don't just buy a tub because it is the one on display, make sure that the tub selected, is the one that works best for you.

Walk in Tubs cost more when purchased during a visit to a local showroom because showrooms have a higher over head, which results in higher prices. Generally speaking, prices will usually cost 25%-30% than if utilizing another purchasing method. In addition, not all companies with showrooms are willing to handle the install of walk in tubs so there may be additional fees incurred for the install.

Online Retailers

Any walk in tub purchase can be challenging but online purchasing can be even more complicated because the prices vary depending on quality.Online companies have savvy sales people so it is important to research the company and not just the sales reputation of the sales force.  Prices are often misleading, so be careful of this when making a purchase. If purchasing solely on a minimal price, try and stay away from tubs with electrical components. This is where most of companies use imported components and the companies that sell at the lowest prices are typically, the ones that sacrifice quality or features to do it.

It is very important that a company be willing to install your tub and not just sell you a tub. This ensures you that they have installation crews who are willing to install their quality product. This also means the company employs a service crew so if you are ever in need of a repair, you may contact the same company. Be sure to research the BBB as well as ask for certifications and length of time in business. It is also good to ask for referrals to make sure other customers have been satisfied by the services provided.
