Default Question about moving companies

I was just wanting some opinions, when you hire a moving company and pay a few hundred bucks to move you, should you still tip the workers? and if so, how much?

In my personal opinion, no, you should not tip, society says otherwise. We usually buy lunch for the movers but I don't tip.

My local movers did the job so efficiently that the actual price came short of the estimate by about $150. I paid the higher price, then called the moving company immediately to ask them to split the difference among their three employees that did such a good job. They actually respected the fact that they were handling someone else's belongings. Imagine that ...

When the furniture was delivered from my interstate move? No tip. Those clowns didn't deserve a cup of coffee.

If you don't want to tip, then providing snacks and coffee/pop is a good idea. A lot of times they bring their own, but it doesn't hurt to offer.

When we moved from FL to GA this past December/January, we tipped on both ends. The loaders in Fla, and the unloaders in Ga would be different, but the driver would be the same. Our stuff would be on his truck for an additional two weeks and we told the driver of the truck that if our stuff arrived in the same condition there would be a bonus for him. He was great, our stuff was in perfect condition and he got a nice bonus!
