Are you suppose to tip movers?

The general rule of thumb is to base the tip on a percentage of the total cost of moving, with 15-20% being the industry average. As a rule, you are not obliged to tip the moving company. People who move should arrive on time, treat their things as if they were their own, and get organized. They should be courteous, follow your requests and answer any questions that arise about the move.

When it comes to household moves, tipping or not tipping is not the question. I guess everyone in America expects to get tips for things the company is supposed to do and pay for. But what about your moving agents? When thinking about how much to tip those who move to show appreciation, another way to make them very happy is by feeding them. Doing this will minimize confusion over how much each moving company is supposed to receive and will ensure that there is no opportunity for dishonesty or that some moving companies receive a higher share than others.

But even if you're lucky enough to have hired such a hard-working team, it won't hurt to encourage your moving agents to do everything possible by informing them beforehand that in the end they will be waiting for good advice as long as they do their job as they are supposed to.
