Many of our most recent customers have informed us that the places they would have normally gotten their replacement swim spa covers from are out of business or are just giving them the run around. If they are able to get ahold of someone they are being told it will be SIX MONTHS or more before they get their new covers.
And then they call SpaCap.com and get the honest, straight truth about the cost and production schedule of their made in the USA swim spa covers.
Much like the movie Forest Gump, SpaCap.com is likely to end up being the Forest Gump of the Swim Spa Cover industry.
One of the main reasons is those suppliers were relying on inexpensive goods produced overseas. The bottom line was these goods were mass produced, cheaply, made to last a couple years with a large profit margin for the dealers.
SpaCap.com meanwhile was building swim spa covers, made to order, from top of the line goods made in the USA. Their prices were higher but the swim spa covers they produced were made to last YEARS longer and stay lightweight.
Then along came the Corona Virus.
The suppliers that relied on goods produced overseas were caught in the storm. The stock they had on hand was quickly wiped out and the supply chain was cut off.
SpaCap.com just kept on building swim spa covers.
The inexpensive foam filled covers from overseas quickly became more expensive because of higher import fees. The worst hurricane season in years added to shipping challenges and delays. Major US ports became grid locked and the cheap import swim spa cover industry came to a virtual standstill.
The places that would have sold the cheap foam filled swim spa covers from overseas are not sure how much those same products will cost to import if or when things open up again. Some estimates that the cost could increase as much as 180%.
Meanwhile SpaCap.com just keeps on building swim spa covers.
If you were wondering why the foam swim spa covers were taking so long to get and costing so much more than they used to, the reason is simple. Materials from overseas.
Yet, at SpaCap.com they are still plugging away, lining up to be the “last man standing” in swim spa cover manufacturing. Their family owned business never shut down like so many other industries across the country. Yes, their lead time and shipping costs have increased since Amazon has taken over shipping priority across the country but their Made In the USA Swim Spa Covers are still going strong.
If you would like to get a new swim spa cover for your spa before the next decade, and your ready for a lightweight, easy to use swim spa cover, covered in Sunbrella that lasts for YEARS instead of vinyl that is rated by HOURS, visit SpaCap.com.
