There are many places where you can buy walk-in tubs and walk-in showers. Large websites like Amazon can ship one right to your door. You might see ads on television where you can simply call and have one delivered to you. But the experience you get buying from one of these sources is very different from the one you’ll have buying your tub from someone who specializes in walk-in tubs. How do the pros differ? And why should you make sure to get your tub from one? Keep reading to find out.
A walk-in tub is no small investment. You’ll likely spend thousands on this bathroom upgrade, regardless of where you get it from, so it’s important that you ensure you’re getting the highest quality available. You want a tub that’s going to last you the rest of your life—not one that you’ll have to replace in a few years.
When you order from a pro who specializes in walk-in tubs, they’re staking their reputation on the quality of their products (as opposed to sites that sell many different kinds of products and don’t suffer from selling a single inferior product type). Companies like ours take great care inspecting every single tub to ensure that it’s going to last you a lifetime.
Sure, you could get a tub shipped straight to your door. But now what are you going to do with it? You’re going to need to find someone to install the tub for you, which means tracking down, vetting, and paying for a private contractor to perform the installation. You’ll also want to ensure that the contractor you’re using has experience with installing walk-in tubs and showers so that you don’t have to worry about a lack of experience leading to an inferior installation.
At Safe Step Tub, professional installation is included with every purchase. We want to ensure that your tub is installed properly and in a quick and professional manner so that you can enjoy it without worry, and we can ensure that our product is handled and installed in the right way.
When you buy a tub from a catch-all manufacturer or general online store, you don’t have a lot of options to choose from. You’ll need to make your best guess about what you need and hope that your personal measurements of your bathroom space are accurate so that you can get a tub that actually fits.
A professional will inspect your bathroom space, discuss your bathing needs, and ensure you find something that fits both. While our tubs are prebuilt with standard luxury features, we offer add-on options like the overhead shower package to improve functionality and meet more of our clients’ needs. We’ll discuss all customization options with you to make sure that your tub is the absolute best fit for you.
Whether you need a walk-in tub, walk-in shower, or a walk-in shower-tub combo, Safe Step Tub can help you find and install the perfect solution for your accessibility needs. Contact us today to get started.
