Yelp Seattle Movers

When should you tip a mover? Only after great service.

Just like in a restaurant, if you felt like the server did a great job attending to your table, your food was delivered quickly, and your coffee and water was kept full, then I say yes. I've been around this industry a long time, and have seen just about everything when it comes interaction with the clients and the movers.

Whether you are a construction worker, delivery driver, software engineer, or banker, there is one thing we all need more of, and that is customer service. Customer service seems to be lacking in society today, and our level of expectations have been reduced quite a bit.

What should I look for in a Good Mover?

A good mover is respectful, meaning respectful of you, your family, your belongings, your property, your trees, your grass, your carpets, your time, and your pocketbook. A good mover is also respectful to the people around, tenants, management, apartment buildings, parking spaces, and other vehicles. A good mover will shake your hand and introduce themselves to you, make eye contact, communicate during the move if there are any issues, what time they will be loaded and ready to move on to the new place.

They will communicate the moving process, how things are done if needed. A good mover will overcome obstacles or challenges presented during the moving process, and will work with the client to find solutions. A good mover is courteous, efficient, and knowledgeable in many situations. A good mover is confident, and knows how to reduce stress levels during a move. If your mover meets most of these expectations, then by all means it is not uncommon to show your appreciation to the crew. It is not a requirement to tip your mover, and we would never expect or ask you to do so.

I've seen many unprofessional situations with other companies in the last 25 years of uneducated movers asking for tips, and I would never re-hire a company that endorses this. Here at Lake Union Movers, we teach our crews how to be professional, respectful, hard working, courteous movers. You will see and feel the difference in our service.
