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 it is expensive. And I’m always left wondering if I’m leaving a large enough tip.
So tell me, how much do you tip movers? Is there a general guideline you use?
