Tipping Moving Crews

Many satisfied customers often ask, "What kind of tip do you give a mover?"

Theres no right or wrong answer. It's completely up to you and your experience moving with our team.

A few guides suggest formulas such as doing 5% of your moving bill or $5-8 per mover per hour they worked.

Over the last 5 years, I have personally seen movers receive anything from $10-$200 per mover. I've also seen customers provide each mover with a different amount each.

Additionally, another wonderful gesture is offering them a drink or a snack. The movers live off of Gatorade in the summer. Protein rich snacks, fruits, and any other tasty treats make these guys happy. If you have your moving crew the entire day or over the course of several day, you may even consider picking up lunch for them.

As with any gratuity, your tip should be a reflection of your experience. We thank you for choosing to tip our Moving Crews, as they are truly our greatest asset here at Smooth Moves Cville. Here at the office, we also enjoy feedback from our customers! Please feel free to send us a follow up email to let us know if there was anything we could improve on! Don't be shy, we strive to always be improving. Additionally, please feel free to leave some written word of your experiences on Yelp or Google. Your online reviews help this small local woman owned and operated business grow.

To show our gratitude, we provide discounts for return customers. Personally, I don't wish repeat moving on anyone, but if that does happen to your family, let this small token of our gratitude for moving with us again, take some of the edge off.
