Do I need to tip the movers?

Wondering How Much To Tip Movers? You are not alone! Our moving prices do not include gratuity. Tipping is optional and greatly appreciated by our movers. So, if the movers did a great job, please feel free to tip them.

Important to note, there is no “average tip.” However, as a guideline, tips for movers range from 5% of the total bill to $20 per man. Plus, if your job was complicated, took a long time, or the movers were exceptional, it is ok to give more.

Just so you know, a complicated move includes those with narrow or winding stairs, a steep lot, far away parking, or very heavy furniture. Likewise, if your move takes the moving crew 12 hours to move or to pack your home, that is considered a long day.

In either of these cases, you may want to consider tipping a larger amount. Proper etiquette is to tip each mover individually and not to give the lump sum to the foreman of the job.

If at the last minute, you realize that you forgot to get cash for the tip, or you feel awkward handing out cash each individual movers, simply call the office and ask your move coordinator to add an amount to your bill of lading.
