TIPPING HOUSE MOVERS
HARD WORKING JOB
With everything to consider on moving day (not to mention the days and weeks leading up to it), it’s easy to let little things slip your mind. When your move is complete and you’re just a few pieces of paperwork away from settling into your new home, a moment of panic arises as the questions pop into your head: “Do you tip house movers? And if so, how much?”
“When tipping, you should also take into consideration if they’ve been responsible for a great deal of breakables or heirlooms that were all handled with great care.”
TIPPING IS EXPECTED
Here at Zip Moving, we’ve overseen a thousands of moves, and we’ve come to realize just how much confusion exists over the topic of tipping movers, as well as the sheer volume of little decisions that can make or break the ease of moving day. To take away the guesswork, we’ve provided a quick primer on how to tip your moving professionals:
Should you tip movers? Just like most service-oriented professions such as waitstaff, spa and beauty consultants, and delivery people, the moving industry employs workers whose livelihood depends largely on the tips they receive from customers. So, bear that in mind when your movers are hauling your belongings from one home to another.
THERE'S AN INDUSTRY STANDARD
How much should you tip movers? It’s customary to tip $20 per mover for a satisfactory job, or up to even $100 each if they’ve really earned their stripes by maneuvering lots of stairs, strange-shaped corridors, and less-than-ideal parking situations. When tipping, you should also take into consideration if they’ve been responsible for a great deal of breakables or heirlooms that were all handled with great care.
