Tipping. It’s the expression of a job well-done. Or is it? Think about. Hasn’t the “tip” become almost an afterthought for restaurant-goers? Unless someone enjoys outstanding service or suffers substandard treatment, he typically just adds a 15% or 20% tip to his bill auto-pilot-style.
However, since people don’t hire an interstate moving company every day, individuals often aren’t sure whether to tip their home movers—or what criteria to consider.
When you hire an Orlando moving company—such as Sam’s Moving—you’re entrusting your valuables to a mover backed by the van line Americans have relied on for 90 years: National Van Lines. We’re long-distance movers who pride ourselves on A-to-Z service and satisfaction.
Unlike an eatery experience, tipping your movers typically isn’t expected. However, recognizing and rewarding superior service is appreciated. Defining a moving-industry standard is a bit tricky, though, so here’s a list of factors to consider when deciding whether to tip your movers.
As your movers finish moving you into your new home, consider how the day went. Did the driver and crew arrive on time? Did they listen, ask questions, provide expert advice and make you feel at ease? Is everything where and how it should be? Did they go above and beyond? Are you impressed?
If you answered “yes” to most of those questions, you might consider tipping your home movers. The amount depends entirely on your satisfaction level.
When deciding how much to tip your movers, consider the difficulty of the tasks. Did these hard-working pros encounter flights of stairs, tight hallways or complex conditions? If you had to move a piano, artwork or other fragile items, you might want to show your appreciation.
Consider the overall weight or how much you moved. Moving furniture across country is an interstate-moving given, but did your shipment involve particularly large furniture pieces? Did it take a long time? Moving heavy appliances and furniture throughout a long, hot summer day might warrant a larger tip. The more specific your requests, the more you might consider tipping your Sam’s Express Moving crew, the furniture movers Orlando FL residents count on to transport their belongings and keep them in perfect condition.
Determine whether you’d like to give the tip to the foreman or each of the pro movers individually. Some companies might have gratuity policies for your (or the workers’) protection, so check your contract or ask your Sam’s Express Moving representative ahead of time. Also realize the crew moving you out might not be the same one moving you in; make sure you tip movers while you have the opportunity. We want to know if you agree that we’re among the best-rated moving companies for long-distance movers.
Respect and reviews
You can’t go wrong providing drinks, snacks or refreshments—but they’re not expected. Consider posting a glowing online review and mention the foreman (and any standouts) by name.
After a hard day’s work, a tip signals gratitude and respect for their profession. Plus, it lets them know they did a great job!
