Moving is hard work. That’s why so many people hire local moving companies to help them get their belongings from one place to another. A local moving company takes the time to hire qualified employees who will treat your things with care. They’ll also work hard to get you moved as quickly as possible. With all of the physical labor and know-how that’s involved, you may wonder if you should tip your movers after the job is done.

Do Professional Movers Expect a Tip?

Professional movers are paid by the moving company for their services. Some local moving companies will even break down your moving quote to show how much you’ll pay for each mover who’s on the job. According to the American Moving and Storage Association, professional movers don’t expect a tip. However, you should treat the movers like you would other service providers you do business with, like a hairdresser. If you receive excellent service, feel free to give your movers a tip.

When considering how much to tip, think about the move itself. Were stairs involved? Was there a lot of heavy furniture? If so, you may want to adjust your tip accordingly.
