How to Tip Your Moving Services in the Tampa, FL, Area

Moving Services Tampa FLHiring moving services to relocate your home or business in the Tampa, Florida, area can take a huge amount of stress and hassle out of the process. That’s why it’s important to show appreciation for the people assisting you by tipping them for a job well done. As with any individual providing a service, their tip should be based largely on how well they performed, so if your moving services were prompt, professional, and efficient, there are proper measures you can take to let them know you valued their service:

  • Tip according to the amount of hours your moving services spent working, not according to percentages. Unlike the restaurant industry, percentages don’t really work with moves, since they vary greatly depending upon the size of the move and how long it takes for the crew to finish. To calculate tip amount, consider how many hours they worked. For a half-day (about 4 hours) then $10 a person is considered fair. If they’ve worked 8 hours or more that would be considered a full day’s work, so $20-$40 would be appropriate.
  • Don’t give the lump sum to the foreman. Instead, tip the employees who provided your moving services individually to avoid the risk of anyone missing out on their fair share. Tipping this way also gives you the opportunity to show each person you appreciate their efforts.
  • Avoid giving the crew alcohol. Most legitimate moving companies have a rule against their movers drinking alcohol on the job, so if you want to show appreciation, give them a cold bottled water and buy them lunch instead.

“The best service from the office, Giselle and Hannah, to the movers Carl and David. Everyone has been polite, caring, and extremely helpful. What a wonderful company to do business with. What a surprise when Carl and David started padding and shrink wrapping my furniture! It was included in the price not additional like other movers I spoke with! Smart Move™ was the only movers with a 20 foot storage unit, which saved me money as I didn’t need two units. If you need to move be sure you call Smart Move™ first and tell them Claudia B. sent you!!!”
