Re: How much do you tip movers?

Only if they answer your request to perform services outside their scope of work. They are not like wait staff that can be paid below minimum wage because they are expected to make it up in tips. Perhaps the better discussion would be who should we tip, why should we tip them and what is a reasonable tip rate. In the 60's 10% was considered correct for wait staff and now I see 25+% recommended. In the next century will it be 50%?

nrkmann~ I don't see an answer to that persons question. They are not waitstaff?? Myself it's usually $15-20 each mover 1000-1600 sq. feet. I double it if there are only 2-3 movers.

Ummmm...dang! Tipping movers? Honestly, I just recently bought a home last year. I found a gentlemen on the recommendation of my realtor. He was fast, safe and efficient. We talked, came to an agreed upon price and that was it. Did I slight him by not tipping?

Like the other comments here, I never have even considered tipping movers. Maybe I'll start now? I've really only thought of tipping, say, taxi drivers and/or wait staff and/or the valet. Movers I get are generally contractors for a big company that I pay a large sum for to move, so I've never even thought about tipping the mover. And if I do tip the mover, I feel like any amount that's inconsequential will be an insult to them. For example, movers on TaskRabbit cost up to $70/hr. If they...

How much do you tip movers?

Sushil ·
Between myself and family members, I have moved a lot. In fact, tomorrow I’m helping a family member move, and it will be the eighth move in five years. I’m no longer at a place in my life where I can put my body — or my friends’ — through lifting furniture and heavy boxes (although I’ve become something of an expert at packing boxes and crates), and some of these jobs are simply too big. So, I’ve always employed professional movers. In my opinion, hiring movers is well worth the cost, but...

All this great advice and just 2 days to Christmas, oh well. Long story short: practical and useful gifts are the best gifts to receive, at least for me. Really who among us has enough dust collectors that often become relegated to a closet or drawer and later when we 'declutter' donate these unwanted and unusable things or regift them to someone we think (and hope) might enjoy them and use them? I couldn't tell you how many useless and nonsense gifts I 've received over the years at work...

Good list. I'm defaulting to gift cards because that's what they want...Give The People What They Want 🙄.

Because I'm a fatty and my friends are fatty, giving cheap gifts is easy. I just buy some food online and ship it to them, and they me. Examples include, say, olive oil from a boutique place in California. Or if I just went to Italy and really enjoyed some biscotti, I might buy that specific brand of biscotti (+optionally amaretto for them to dip the biscotti in) and ship it to my friends. The great thing w/ food is that 1) it's much cheaper than like a watch, and 2) it's much easier to buy...

Among gifts that don't end up being clutter ( like knicknacks aka dust collectors, unwanted clothes etc. that often end up in a drawer or closet and end up being donated or regifted to someone who hopefully would like or use gift provided it hasn't been used or regifted to the original giver or a friend of the giver, tacky), I have a saying about Christmas gifts: 'If I can't drink it or eat it I'm not interested, thanks". Over the years I like a lot of others have accumulated a lot of...

If you don't know what they want or need, novelty t-shirts or hoodies are great go to's for me, but then you have to agonize over getting their size right. Also, books are great and so are subscriptions to magazines or an online publications.

10 -20% according to this https://threemovers.com/am-i-supposed-to-tip-movers/ which I tend to agree with. Personally, I tip each member of the moving crew around that percentage, but I can't say I've ever moved a super long distance - I'm talking more about same day moves, but I think you're in good shape if you stick to that percentage, roughly speaking.

I have not been to a Drive-in in over 35 years. I checked the map through the link, my nearest one is around 200 miles one way away from me. LOL. When I was a kid it was $2 for the car load.

I loved the drive in theaters when I was a kid. Unfortunately the only one around me in KY is 45 minutes away, still considering it though.
