For some services, tips are a way customers show appreciation to their providers. When it comes to home movers, the discussion about tipping might not be as clear-cut as people believe. In fact, it may even result in awkward conversations which nobody wants. Despite all this, it’s important to start on one basic rule: you are absolutely not obligated to tip your movers.
Of course, there are circumstances when you might want to let your movers know just how much you appreciate their help. Let our experienced moving specialists at Tiger Moving & Storage give you the real deal about when (and when not) to tip your movers.
Superior Customer Satisfaction
Like in any service industry, there will always be movers who provide excellent service and those who do not. Tipping is appropriate if your movers show exceptional professionalism and go above and beyond what you expected them to do. Specifically, you may tip your movers if they do the following things.
- Show up ahead of time and finish the job earlier than scheduled.
- Navigate an inordinate amount of stairs or when they are asked to carry exceptionally cumbersome items.
- Help you organize everything in your move and even pack up some of your belongings for you.
- Kept everything safe and well protected all throughout the process.
- Impressed you with their professionalism and standards.
Tipping is an optional thing when it comes to moving, but if your movers caused problems, acted unprofessionally, or damaged your items, feel free not to give them a tip.
Of course, when you receive remarkable service from your moving experts, there are also other ways to show them your appreciation without giving them a tip. Provide them with refreshments when they are taking a quick break. You may also offer them some quick snacks like bananas to give their energy a little boost.
