A True West Coast Company

An outdoor hot tub on a pier next to a lake

We realize that a lot of people out there put their heart and soul into their work, but there are some businesses so good at what they do that we have to give them a shoutout. One such business is our own client Backcountry Recreations!

Backcountry Recreation’s products are beautiful, but not flashy. If you want cup-holders, molded seats, glossy coatings, and built-in speakers, you should look elsewhere. What Backcountry Recreation has to offer you is simple and beautiful elegance – clean and pure natural materials and an aesthetic that will look beautiful next to any home or cabin. Because their products do not rely on electricity or plumbing, you can enjoy the hot tubs and saunas they have to offer anywhere – on your deck, in your yard, or elsewhere on your property (although they do offer a full line of electrically powered options). 

Founded on Vancouver Island, British Columbia Backcountry Recreation knows what it’s like to be remote (just like Freightera), cut off, removed from the hustle and bustle of the city and they like it that way. Working in the freight industry or with freight, in general, is incredibly stressful. Our employees constantly have to find ways to de-stress and relax. Those that have been in a sauna can tell you that it’s one of the most relaxing things you can do after a long day. 

This is the backbone of Backcountry Recreation, remote location hot tubs, sauna kits, outdoor appliances, and accommodations. Perfect for the do-it-yourselfer.

Our client’s wood fire hot tubs & saunas are perfect for the off-the-grid cabin, chalet, lake house, cottage, or recreational property. Looking for an off-grid bunkie or setting up a glamping business? We have you covered! You can ship Backcountry’s products to the difficult-to-reach spots and they always make a charming addition to any property. Our client’s classic designs complement any backdrop and can be delivered and installed anywhere in Canada or the USA. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.

Our synergy

We want our customers to be completely satisfied with our services, and one of the reasons we love Backcountry is that they feel the same about their products. Just like every shipment is unique and requires special care, every product needs to be tailored to the individual customer’s needs and requirements – no compromises. That’s why we decided to feature Backcountry Recreation. Their products feature high-grade woods, such as Western Red Cedar from British Columbia, and Scandinavian Thermowood from Estonia which meets Freightera’s standards of excellence. They also use polished stainless steel for their sauna bands and submersible wood-burning hot tub stoves.

All of Backcountry Recreations’ kits contain all you will need for assembly and use. The wood materials in their hot tubs and saunas typically last at least 15-20 years, giving you a long time for enjoyment. Because wood is a natural product, the life expectancy can vary depending on your local climate, how you care for the wood, and where on your property you locate the unit. The good news is that these materials are biodegradable and won’t stick around for hundreds of years once you’re done having fun.

Huge savings with the highest (service) quality

At its foundation, a great product starts with high-quality service, and when it comes to physical commodities that means materials that have been proven to stand the test of time. That is why we didn’t think twice about promoting our good client, Backcountry Recreation. Just like Freightera, they hold themselves to a golden standard and make sure that everything they do is done perfectly.
