A nice move deserves a nice tip.

Some Tips on Tipping

Tipping your mover is customary! It’s a way to say “thank you for a job well done”. Movers depend on tips just like waiters, waitresses, and other people in the service and hospitality industries. Movers have a difficult and demanding job. Most movers go above and beyond to provide a high level of service and a stress-free move. Let them know you appreciate their hard work! And keep in mind that the price of your move doesn’t include a tip.

Tipping Budget Suggestions

You can base your tip on the total cost of your move and the type of move. Use the below as a guide for reasonable and customary tips for experienced movers:

For LOCAL MOVES,

10%-20%

of the total move cost

For LONG DISTANCE OR
INTERNATIONAL MOVES,

5%-10%

of the total move cost per
moving team at pick up and
destination

For COMMERCIAL MOVES

10%

of the total cost

(If your crew did an amazing job or you had them move a piano or move you into a 5th story walk-up, you might want to consider increasing your tip.)
