“We started Phoenix Hot Tub Hire in June last year and over lockdown it really has taken off massively. It all began when we hired one during the first lockdown last Spring. It was great fun and the children loved it! We thought it was such a good idea so we invested in some! We are gradually increasing the number of hot tubs that we hire out on a regular basis and this year is really starting to pick up again.
The whole situation with Covid and lockdown made us realise that people are unable to jet off and take those well deserved breaks, so hiring a hot tub is something fun to do together as a family and have a bit of downtime – almost like a staycation in your own garden.
You can hire them for all different kinds of occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, valentines or really any excuse for people to have a bit of fun! We had a lot of bookings last year as it was everybody’s first summer at home. It did quieten down a little in the winter, but we still had enquiries from people would normally be going away somewhere hot and sunny, so decided to bring a bit of warmth to their garden during the cold months! We offer them for weekends, mid-week, week long or simply one night hire for occasions such as News Year Eve!
Running a business is a new thing for us. We both work in an office during the week, but also love this new venture, ultimately because we get to meet people and love to see the excitement on there faces! It’s rewarding to hear the positive feed back from customers telling us how nice it is to be able to actually do something fun in the current situation.
It’s tough to come up with ideas and new things that get you out of the current mundane boring life that we’re all leading at the moment. We look forward to the months ahead, and meeting lots of new customers.
We cover all areas of Tonbridge & Malling, but are happy to travel a little further for a minimal charge.”
