Cover production, shipping, return policy and warranty information
You will receive a copy of your order via return e-mail. Please read over the e-mail to be sure your order is accurate. If you see a mistake, or if you wish to make changes, please notify us within 2 business days.
All of our spa covers are custom made to order. We do not keep an overstock of spa covers, so once we begin production we are fully invested in making a spa cover specifically for you. This is why your credit card is charged when you place your order. You are able to change or cancel your order up to 2 business days after you place the order. However, we cannot cancel or make changes to your order once the production process has begun. After this point spa covers will be covered by the warranty, but are not otherwise returnable.
Please note that due to common production variations within the same make and model, we cannot guarantee matching safety strap placement.
DisclaimerWe guarantee your hot tub cover will be a perfect fit (manufactured within 1” of the measurements you provide). If there is a flaw in your hot tub cover due to our own manufacturing mistakes, we will take responsibility for it and replace your spa cover at not charge. However, if you make a mistake (such as providing us with wrong measurements, or pick a spa cover color you don’t like) then you will be responsible for the spa cover. We take time to review every order that is submitted to be sure the manufacturing process goes smoothly, and your spa cover comes out the way you want it. We often catch mistakes before the order goes into production, but we can’t guarantee the spa cover will be perfect unless you review the dimensions and other aspects of the spa cover you give us.
Spa Cover ShippingOn average, you can expect your spa cover to arrive within 3 weeks from time of order. This is a custom item with production time plus delivery. Shipping is FREE to anywhere in the contiguous 48 States (except Alaska and Hawaii). Hawaii orders ship for an additional $175. For pricing to ship to Alaska, contact us at 1 888 251-6661 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your cover will be delivered via common carrier, and should be inspected immediately upon delivery. A time window for delivery (usually 2 - 4 hours) will be arranged by the freight company. Any additional freight charges including: Re-Delivery, Limited Delivery Area, Inside Delivery, re-consignment fees, address correction fees, warehouse storage fees, etc. is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Please notify shipper of any problems discovered on inspection and please call hottubthings.com right away. Our covers are for delivery only, we cannot remove or dispose of an old cover.
Cover ReturnsIt is a good idea to be present when the spa cover is delivered for a couple different reasons. You have the opportunity to inspect the exterior packaging and note any damage on the delivery receipt. In the case that the spa cover is damaged you can note that on the delivery receipt and have the chance to refuse the delivery at that time.
If you can’t be home at the time of delivery, that is okay too. Let the delivery carrier known that you will not be present when they contact you. It is also a good idea to leave a signed note on your door stating it is fine to leave the cover in a safe place. The carrier will accept the note as proof of delivery.
Every so often, a spa cover becomes damaged during shipment. If you are present for the delivery and you inspect the exterior shipping package and see a hole or other damage to the box, it is recommended that you open the box and inspect the spa cover. If the hot tub cover is fine, accept it. If it turns out that the spa cover itself is also damaged, note this on the delivery receipt and you may refuse the shipment. Your hot tub cover is always insured against freight damage. However, it is necessary that you notify us within 2 business days of receiving a hot tub cover that has been damaged in transit.
Spa covers that have been damaged due to shipment will be accepted. We will also accept returns on spa covers that have defects due to production mistakes. We accept return under the conditions outlined in the 3-year non-prorated warranty. Please notify us of any problems like this within 48 hours of receiving your cover. We cannot accept returns for any other reasons than stated above (Examples: 1. We won’t accept a spa cover return because you provided the wrong dimensions. 2. We cannot accept returns for errors in our dimensions data base, it is your responsibility to double check these to be correct. 3. We won’t accept a spa cover return because the color is not what you expected, or you dislike the color.)
