Moving can be stressful. After all, you already have plenty of things to consider, making it understandable that the last thing you want to do is handle packing. Luckily, this is where your local movers come into play, helping you make packing and moving much easier. However, when homeowners hire movers to help them, there is another question that they ask: should you tip them when the job is done?
According to experts, when you hire a moving company to help you relocate, it’s not a requirement to tip the movers for their help. However, if they show up on time, finished your move faster, helped you pack your things, went up and down the stairs numerous times, protected your belongings and all in all just went above and beyond with their service, it would be a nice and appreciated gesture to offer them a monetary reward for their hard work. If you decide to tip in cash, however, a rule of thumb you should follow is that you should tip your movers 5% to 10% of the total service charge.
Other Ways to Tip
On the other hand, if you aren’t comfortable giving cash as tips, or you’re short on cash after paying for their services, there other ways you can tip your movers. For instance, you can give them some refreshments, such as sandwiches and cold drinks, if they helped you move during a hot day. Alternatively, if the move lasted long until dinner time, you could also provide them with a simple meal like pizza as thanks for their service.
