Think about it though. I did 15-20 a person also; it just added up to $100!!

I may be more inclined to give a bigger tip if I were doing a huge move and my company was paying for it. Not that I don't think they deserve it, but if a waiter only brings me appetizers he/she wouldn't get as much as someone who brought me a 4 course meal.

Are the ones who load typically the ones who go the distance and unload at the destination? I mean out of state moves.

On my two long distance moves, the driver was the same but the loaders and unloaders were different--hired at each city.

I agree, I am moving a one bdrm apt and I am trying to do it as economically as possible. I may tip each guy $25 each but I am not going to tip 15% of the bill. I too am an excellent tipper while dining out (20%) but feel we are a society that has become guilt ridden over tipping. For example when I go to the yogurt shop and all you have done is hold a cup under a machine and fill it with yogurt and that took all of 10 seconds, now I have to leave u a $1 tip! Yes I do it since the tip jar is in my face and I feel guilty! Plus I know these are young kids in college trying to get thru school. Tipping has gone too far!
