To tip or not to tip the moving help

First of all, if someone is helping you move, hired or not, they are helping you in a big way so the answer is generally yes, you should tip. If, however, the service was terrible, you’ve had things break, or the movers did not listen to your requests, do not feel like you have to tip, tipping should depend on how good the service was, just like in a restaurant.

  • If there is only one or two movers, about $50-$70 (to split between them) is a good tip. Keep in mind, it you had a lot of heavy stuff, an extra $10 or more might be added.
  • If there was more than one or two movers, $30 for each of them is good. Give the total to the supervisor to make sure that it gets split evenly.
  • Besides money, provide drinks and even lunch if the move takes a long time. It does not have to be a 5-course meal, but ordering a box of pizza or two will be greatly appreciated.
