Traveling Spa Expo – WARNING!

“I heard about a spa expo coming to town this weekend. They claim to carry major manufacturers and warehouses clearance of brand new inventory at huge reductions.” It sounds too good to be true, and it’s very misleading!

Here are their claims and the facts you need to know BEFORE you go.

There are a whole list of problems associated with a traveling spa and swim spa expo. PLEASE READ ON TO DISCOVER THEIR CLAIMS VS THE TRUTH. If you want more information, call us at 303-296-7727 and we will be happy to answer any questions.

See what the Better Business Bureau thinks of this show that travels from state to state with questionable claims that mislead the public.

  • Major Manufacturers and Warehouses Clearance of brand new inventory

    This is not a typical convention show like a smaller version of the CO Garden & Home Show. This is ONE company ONLY, SELLING ONE BRAND, not a selection of different companies. IT IS NOT EVEN A LOCAL BUSINESS.

    IHT has sold the same MAJOR and recognized brands for over 40 years. We represent Hot Spring, Caldera, Freeflow, and Nordic hot tubs.

    Whether you decide to purchase from IHT or not, you are ALWAYS better off buying from a local dealer than an out-of-town weekend visitor. But come see us first and we will show you why you can trust IHT with your big purchase like a hot tub or swim spa.

  • This weekend only. (Then they are gone.)

    They come in from out of state for the weekend only. Then they are gone and you are left on your own with no local support for your purchase. Ever try to resolve a problem with an out-of-state company. It can be frustrating and time consuming. This is one of the biggest problems from purchasing from the expo. And what about your warranty? Who is going to service it once they are gone? They don’t care about your satisfaction or repeat business because they will be gone. It’s now or never for them.

    IHT has proudly been serving Denver and the front range for over 40 years. We aren’t going anywhere. With 4 convenient locations we will be here when you need us. We are open 7 days a week and have a full Customer Care and Support Department. We are easy to get hold of and to get to.

    We want to establish a long term relationship with our customers. Many purchase more than one hot tub from us over the years. We are here to stay.


  • They claim a huge selection.

    Yes, there is a large selection. You can choose from what they brought, or order. They will push you to buy what’s on the floor because it is cheaper for them. There is no concern for your needs or lifestyle requirements.

    Yes, IHT also has a huge selection with 4 convenient showrooms. You can buy off the floor or order what you want. We pride ourselves in getting to know our customers. This is so we can provide you the absolute best ownership experience in the market. We listen to you dreams and desires and help you get into the perfect hot tub or swim spa FOR YOU.

  • What is the experience like?

    Remember the “old style” used car salesman. They have a crew of commission only sales people that travel around the country. You will start with very aggressive tactics designed to force a purchase immediately regardless of your needs. After all, they are only here 3 days. It will be about them, not YOU. Delivery must be within 2 weeks because after that their crew is gone. “High pressure” and “aggressive” are words we hear over and over about them.

    After the sale there will be no local support. If you have a concern or need supplies, no one will be there for you.

    At IHT that’s just not who we are. IHT is all about the experience and making sure you are in a relaxed, pressure free environment. This is a fun purchase and the whole experience should be fun, not frenzied. We will go through all your options and choices and even come to your home if you’d like to do a free backyard consultation to discuss hot tubs, location, electric and delivery options.

  • The prices are 40-80% off. Isn't that a good deal?

    Their hot tubs are an inferior quality and won’t hold up to the Colorado extremes the way Hot Spring or Caldera hot tubs will.

    Their prices are extremely inflated to begin with so you are saving 40%-80% off an inflated retail price. But you are still paying for a low quality hot tub. Rememeber what Mama always said… “you get what you pay for” and “if it looks too good to be true, it usually is.”

    IHT has true sales going on throughout the year. We can offer you the best prices on the best hot tubs.  See our current SPECIALS.

    If you want more price information, call us at 303-296-7727 and we will be happy to answer any questions.

  • Millions of dollars of inventory must be sold!

    Yes, they have a lot of hot tubs with them. But what if you want it in a different color or want to add a sound system or Hot Spring exclusive Salt Water System. Then you are out of luck. Your choices are very limited.

    Yes, IHT has over a million dollars of inventory in 4 convenient showrooms. But on top of that, you can order color combinations and accessory options in hundreds of additional options. We will order it specifically for you. We want you to get the hot tub you have been dreaming of and the experience you will rave about.

  • Free Delivery

    Yes, they offer free delivery within a 2-week time frame of the show.

    What if you need to pour a pad or finish the landscaping or just aren’t quite ready. You are out of luck.

    Yes, we also deliver free as does every local hot tub dealer. But we work differently. IHT will schedule your FREE Delivery at your convenience. Our Delivery Coordinator will contact you to be sure everything is in place for a smooth and relaxed delivery. Our crew will take the time to make sure everything is done right and it is exactly as you want it before they leave. Then we will will follow up with a FREE In Home Orientation to answer your hot tub or swim spa questions and make sure you get the most enjoyment from your purchase. If you have an old hot tub we will also remove it at the time of delivery for no extra charge.

  • Don't just take our word for it...

    Just search for spa expo or hot tub show and see all of the WARNINGS from a variety of companies (even our competitors) who all find this to be in the dealer’s interest and NEVER IN THE CONSUMER’S BEST INTEREST. We can’t all be wrong. This is not the best way for you to start your hot tub or swim spa experience and certainly not the best way to get local, caring help and support after the sale.
