When to Tip Long Distance Movers: Before or After?

When you hire long-distance movers, it is customary to tip them for their services. The tip is usually 15-20% of the total price of the move. It is best to divide the total cost of the move in two and calculate the tip based on that. This way, both moving teams will be tipped equally.

It may seem like a good idea to tip carriers beforehand, but it is best to wait until the job is finished. This way, you can make sure that you are satisfied with their work before giving them a tip. If you think that your movers did an exceptional job, then you can definitely tip above the recommended amounts. When moving a short distance, it is a good idea to tip carriers based on the time needed to complete the job.

This will minimize confusion over how much each moving company should receive and will ensure that there is no opportunity for dishonesty or that some moving companies receive a higher share than others. Tipping in the moving industry is common and its workers, like most workers in the service industry, appreciate the gesture. Make sure you have water on hand for those who move in case they are thirsty on moving day. You need to make sure that moving companies understand your needs and are doing everything they can to help you with your move. At the end of the day (literally), if your movers have done a good job, have been friendly and professional, in addition to having worked efficiently, then they deserve a good tip as a reward.

Although tipping the move is quite easy and straightforward, there are still a few things you should keep in mind to thank your moving team the right way.
