Anybody know about Costco Aquaterra Montecito hot tub installation?

I am planning to install a Costco Aquaterra Montecito hot tub(https://www.costco.ca/aquaterra-monteci ... 15213.html) in my backyard, I have a lawn with quite hard earth, how much to build a framed gravel foundation for the 81in * 81in* 34in tub?
Costco only does curbside delivery for this tub, will they put the tub in my backyard if I pay extra to the delivery man?
how much would it cost to hire an electrician to set up the hot tub?
Anything else I should be prepared for?

Thank you in advance.

They might move it to your back yard if it's easily accessed. Is it?

I had a hot tub delivered into my garage (where I did some refurbishing work on it) and then I had specialized hot tub movers come and bring it into the back yard where I had prepped a paving stone platform for it. I think I paid $150 for the movers to come with their specialized dolly and maneuver it into the yard through a gate.

Nobody here can tell you how much its going to cost to prep the site for it or have it hooked up. DIY for the landscaping and call an electrician or three for quotes.

Don't forget permits, inspections and insurance.
