If you’ve arrived at your new Sevenoaks home at the end of a long day moving house, one of the things you might be wondering about is whether you should tip your removal men. If you’ve had a great service from your Sevenoaks removal crew, then you might feel you’d like to show your appreciation by giving them a tip.
How much should you tip?
There’s no ‘going rate’ for tipping a Sevenoaks removals firm. However, you should probably take into account the following factors when deciding how much:
- the number of people in the team
- how long the move took
- how difficult the move was, for example if there were some very valuable and fragile objects that they moved safely
- how much you appreciated the help of your Sevenoaks removals firm.
Other ways to show your appreciation
Of course, there’s no obligation to tip your Sevenoaks removals men. If you’d prefer, you should show your appreciation in other ways. For example, you could provide them with meals and drinks throughout the move. Then at the end of the move, you could give them some beer or perhaps some money for the lead mover to take the rest of the crew to the pub.
Either way, if you’ve been satisfied with the service of your Sevenoaks removals firm, one of the best things you can do is write a testimonial. This will help the firm know that its’ employees are appreciated and could give them a recommendation they can add to their website.
