The short answer is yes. The long answer is that the tipping etiquette in the United States is an extremely complicated set of unspoken rules and customs. While the gratuity at Go To Moving is not outright required, it is expected and appreciated. I remember a long time when I was working alongside other movers, the foreman told our customer: “You would tip the waiter 18% for bringing the food from the kitchen to your table and refilling your water, you should definitely not forget to tip the guys handling all of the belongings in your home”.
We often get asked “How much should I tip the movers?” This is a difficult question and really depends on your circumstances, and the type of move. Generally, $50-$100 per man for a day of work would be considered good to excellent amount for a job well done. If you were not happy with the way the movers worked and want to tip less, or if your job was particularly easy, it is understandable. On the flip side, if you had a big walk up, poorly packed boxes, or asked the movers to do something extra for you, additional gratuity is appreciated in those situations. Ultimately, what you want to give the workers on top of the bill is at your discretion.
Besides just tipping, there are other ways to take care of the movers. Having plenty of water and/or drinks around on a hot day, or making sure the air conditioning is on inside can be huge. If you have an all day move, buying the lunch for your workers will not go unnoticed. Moving is a difficult job and treating your workers with respect can go a long way to ensure a less stressful moving day.
