Free Jacuzzi in classifieds – too good to be true?

by tyankee7 on September 4, 2011

Post your WANT. It’s like Craigslist, but reversed. And really different. At Ubokia, you’re the rockstar. Post exactly what you want and sellers respond to you. Only talk to sellers you choose.

Question by Free Jacuzzi in classifieds – too good to be true?
We saw an ad for a free jacuzzi in our local classifieds, they just need it out by Sat. They say it still works, but hasn’t been used in 4 years. It also needs 2 sides of paneling replaced. It will take a tremendous amount of work on our part to rent a stakebed, recruit 8 guys, and get the thing in our backyard. We’ve always wanted a jacuzzi, but I’m in school f/t right now so our finances SUCK.

I know 2 people who have acquired jacuzzis this way, and they work fine, so it’s not necessarily going to end badly – but it has the potential to.

What do you guys thing?

Worth it?

hey if its free why not, if it doesnt work you can always laugh at it and throw it away, or give it away again!

Don’t know where you live so this may not be an issue… try to determine if it’s been exposed to freezing temperatures and not been winterized. It’s a common cause of failure; split pipes, broken seals, damaged motors, etc. If you can see it in operation and can check for leaks then go for it.

A lot of people post up free jacuzzi’s all the time because they want to get rid of their jacuzzi asap.

Although some of them need parts repaired, but the owners should be straight forward about it, or you can always ask them their reason why they are giving it for free. It doesn’t hurt to ask.
