As the grandfather of all walk in tub companies, Premier Care® walk in tubs are manufactured in England, although their headquarters is United States based. They offer a wide range of walk in tubs to appeal to a fairly large market. From tubs that are specifically designed to accommodate larger people to tubs that are completely powered to help users with severe limited mobility, they have it all. Although they are not as aesthetically pleasing as some of their counterparts, their high quality and dependability more than makeup for their shortcomings.
Designed for people with various pains, arthritis, stress and other debilitating conditions, the Premier Walk in Tub is the perfect solution to help you maintain your independence. Various features are offered with each tub depending on the model you choose. Four categories are available to choose from to find the walk in tub that meets your unique and specific needs. These categories include Compact Walk in Tubs, Oversize Soaking Tubs, Powered Walk in Tubs and Tub/Shower Combos. Each category offers multiple choices so that you can find the walk in tub most suited to your needs.
Premier Care Walk in Tubs are one of the more expensive tubs on the market. If high quality and great customer service are important to you though, then it is worth the price.

EVERYTHING WOULD BE FINISHED WITHOUT EXTRA CHARGES???
My husband and I signed a contract for a bathroom install along with the Haven tub. It was told to us that everything would be finished and no surprises or extra charges. Well that was a laugh when the contractor first started to get out of putting up the drywalls and said we would find with no wall because it was the furnace room and we needed so much space around everything. He kept coming up with shortcuts for him not eus and we paid the money,17000.00. Then when he put up the drywall, he said that is it and he doesn’t do painting. We had to pay an electrician because they don’t do electrical and now we need another contractor to finish the job that this contractor hired by Premier Care does not do. Our initial salesman was a fast talker who said don’t worry, we will tweak what is needed and it will be just how we want it. We were tweaked all right. Make sure everything is written down and don’t rely on anything verbal. Also the turnaround was a lie too, we are in the second week and the contractor just comes when he has time between his other jobs. We don’t have anything installed yet. Not happy and would not recommend this company. We don’t know anything about the quality yet, but professionalism , poor; affordable, in the high range, experience, this contractor doesn’t do the work we requested and I would have to say poor; customer service, they back each other up and not for the customer, poor.
Pros & Cons
Extra Charges & Fees
Poor Customer Service
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!
a few weeks ago I called premier care out to my home for a free consultation. Needless to say I did NOT buy any of their walk in tubs. the sales person was rude and got irritated when i mentioned something i did not like. he had no manners and interrupted me when i was talking and it was something he did not want to hear. i would not ever buy from a company like this!!!
2 Reset Appointments Later...
Called Premier for my Mother… What a mistake that was! I got the run-around as to why they couldn’t give us a price over the phone. Ultimately agreed to take the time out of my day to sit and wait for a salesperson to show up. To my surprise, he did show up at the scheduled time… on the 2nd reset appointment.
I wasn’t into the BS sales pitch that this guy was putting on, most of it was as transparent as a used car dealer. Finally got the pricing… WOW This guy actually thought we were going to spend $15,300 for a Walk-in Bathtub? I’ll be buying her a walk in shower, thanks!
Tub with built in lift chair
my tub was put in be for thanksgiving, except for the piece of marble for the backside of the tub, I was told the marble guy would be here the day after thanksgiving to finish my tub but no one has showed up yet, I have called the company several times to address this and still I get told some one is on the way and still no one has showed up yet I would not recommend this company to any one I will warn every one I know that this company is a bad one to do business with.
COULDNT HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING MORE
Compared to getting into and out of my old bathtub to take a shower, the premier tub has changed my daily life. I used to avoid it until it was necessary. Mainly used a washrag to clean up daily with a shower every 4 or 5 days. I've slipped before and have been afraid ever since.
Ever since the new premier tub was installed I can get in and shower with the hand held shower. I don't have to take a bath if I dont want, but sometimes I do. I usually take a bath about twice a week now and shower daily. Haven't been worried about slipping since I got the tub.
It was expensive, but they were all expensive. There wasn't a single walk in that I looked at that was "cheap" in price. They were all over $10,000. This one ended up coming in cheaper than some of the other tubs and I was done looking. My son and daughter thought I'd lost my mind, but I've still got a few years left. Didn't really want to rely on them bathing me or finding out that I didn't shower regularly. Overall I'm pretty satisfied.
There's lots of negative reviews out there on many of these things, but the common denominator seems to be that people didn't quite understand what they were getting. If I'm able to get into a tub and not risk having to go to some homestead place, I'm fine with investing in my health. Just my two cents!
