Default Do you tip furniture delivery people?

We're having our new couches delivered, soon. Not sure what's customary. I didn't tip the guys who delivered our new mattress and felt kinda bad about it.

I didn’t when I got my couch. I remember looking it up online too, and ended up deciding against it after reading a bunch.

I don't. Usually I want them out of my house as quickly as as possible. They almost always look like scumbags.

Who can't service a bike? Some pansy *** Nancy know nothing? Jesus, it's a sad day when someone can't "service" a bike. It's no surprise coming from this crowd.

Furniture delivery, no. Give them a cold Gatorade and call it a day.

Movers, yes.

I gave the guys that delivered my new appliances $100.

They were texting me with updates. They were right on time. It was like 8:00 at night. It was raining. They were extremely careful with everything and moved it into the garage exactly where I wanted it up on 2x4’s. I felt like they deserved it :shrug;

Now I did give them some drinks when I had my fridge delivered come to think of it. Never occurred to me that I should tip them though.

but why? they are charging you a fee for their service, and it's typically expensive. But you also want to feed them? FOH!

Some people are going to take this the wrong way. Flame suit on.

We are tipping way too much today. It used to be 10%, then it's 15% minimum. Now, it's best practice to go 18%. If one is happy, than 20%.

I understand the Waiter makes minimum wage, lives in NYC, and can't pay rent. I get that.

But where does that stop? Everyone wants a tip for doing the job they suppose to do.

True story. One guy's father was ill, I think it was a heart issue. Ambulance was called. They were moving a bit "slow." So the guy give each of them $20. This was over 30 years ago, and $20 meant a lot more. They hustled after that. So I guess one need to tip the EMT too.
