What’s an appropriate amount to tip movers? I have a very small move...a few pieces of furniture and boxes. With a small crew I’d be shocked if it took more than 45 minutes

I typically tip $50-100 per mover.

10%. Tipped $20 each for $320 move.

$40/mover if in elevator building; add $10/floor for walk ups


I had the same scenario - I think we tipped $70 on a $350 move. There were three guys who came, took them 30m end to end (including driving and unloading)

Total - it was a dad (owner of the company) and his two sons. They considered it quite generous and were surprised, but we felt like 20% was fair given Covid and how great they were to work with (though I’m sure they had more than enough work with all the local moves)

I tip 10%-15% on top of the total price, guaranteed 15% + extra if there's inclement weather. I try to ensure the tip is divisible by the number of movers and will round up if necessary to do so. I have only lived in buildings with elevators, also. I've also not given tip once when movers dropped my bed frame and damaged it. Some of the numbers here....US tipping culture really has gotten out of hand smh
