Tipping Movers & Packers - Long Distance
We are moving to another state next week and are hoping someone can give us some advice regarding tipping.
There will be a crew of 5 packers, and it will take them 2 days to pack up the house.
There will be a crew of 5 to load the truck and a different crew of 5 to unload in the new state.
And the driver, of course. (He will have the load from start to finish)
I have read so many things on the internet and they range from no tips to 15% of the cost of the move. (The move will cost $13,000 - a 15% tip would put us in the poor house!)
We asked the rep at the moving company, and he couldn't really give an answer.
If anyone has any experience with tipping on long distance moves, we would greatly appreciate it!
