Why Seniors Should Choose A Professional Company vs. Buying A Tub From A Store

The digital world has taken over, especially when it comes to shopping, even if you’re looking to invest in a walk-in tub for yourself or a loved one. Walk-in tubs provide a wide variety of benefits for seniors and choosing the right one will result in maximum benefits. We wanted to discuss the importance of buying a walk-in tub from a professional company versus a re-seller.


Professional Company:
The difference a specialized and professional company can make is game-changing. A company that specializes in a specific product will be your 1 stop shop. From advice to installation to servicing the tubs, they are the experts you can count on. These experts will also provide in-depth knowledge and tips on how to take care of a walk-in tub. They know exactly how it was made, how to use the tub to take advantage of all of its benefits, and most importantly, how to choose the best walk-in tub for your needs. Compared to just a reseller, the team at Safe Step Tubs is always available to answer your questions, along with providing you with the knowledge you need to use your tub effectively.

What else makes Safe Step Tubs unique? They are manufactured in North America. From the design to the construction, it’s all done in North America. We are experts in walk-in tubs providing seniors with comfort and independence, allowing them to bathe and relax. 

As a company that specializes in walk-in tubs, we understand this is an investment, which is why we offer different financing options & discounts, along with free consultations and professional installations. Rest assured that you will not only get excellent customer service but a walk-in tub that will last you a lifetime. 


Purchasing from a store:

Although it can be convenient to walk into a store, it’s not always beneficial, especially if you are wanting to get in-depth information about walk-in tubs. Store associates will know basic information about walk-in tubs, such as the country it was made, and what the most common benefits are. One of the biggest disadvantages you will face is you won’t have direct access to an expert for any in-depth questions and concerns you may have. This could leave you feeling uncertain about your potential purchase. 

Another big disadvantage of purchasing a tub from a store is you will have to arrange for the installation and go through several people to ensure it’s done correctly. From coordinating with a plumber, electrician, and other tradespeople, this process can be overwhelming for seniors and their families. 


Walk-in tubs are an investment for your future and health, one that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s important you are well informed and educated when choosing which tub is the one for you, and working with a company that specializes in this product will help you to do just that.
