Controversy Corner Community Groups Controversy Corner Not tipping furniture delivery people So this was posted on my town’s Facebook “informed” page. Which is supposed to be a page for people to post happening in our town, but often people post things like asking questions or advice and what not. Well this particular woman had ordered a bunch of furniture from Art Van and had it delivered to her home because she didn’t have a vehicle that was large enough to transport it herself. I guess the delivery Charge was $100. She then asked if she didn’t have to give them a tip because of the delivery fee. Personally I think that regardless of the delivery fee they should still be tipped at least something. What do you think? TMI This photo contains TMI content Click to view this photo.

Would you tip for this and how much? (My google-fu says that the last time this question was asked was in 2005, so I’m posting a repeat.) I’m having a C&B couch and chair delivered to my home this week. The furniture needs to go up six external steps (three, a short sidewalk walkway, and then three on the stoop) to get dropped off in the front room (no entrance hallway or mudroom to navigate – you open the front door and you’re in the room where the couch is going). There’s a $99 delivery fee, but not tipping for delivery feels weird in this day and age. Would you recommend tipping for this delivery and if so, how much? posted by longdaysjourney to Home & Garden (11 answers total) 3 users marked this as a favorite

My husband was a furniture deliverer for a year. Most people didn’t tip, but he was grateful when they did, especially if the delivery was particularly onerous. He didn’t see anything from the delivery fee and wasn’t paid very much for the job. Depending on your level of generosity, anywhere from $10-20 per delivery person would be appreciated, I’m sure.posted by Zosia Blue at 10:50 AM on March 9, 2015

It’s easy to get excited about buying a new sofa or kitchen table, but that excitement can turn into disappointment when you realize there’s no way you can squeeze the new purchase into your car for the drive home. Many furniture retailers can deliver your purchase to your home for a fee. Although you typically pay a fee upon purchase, don’t put your wallet away just yet. It’s proper etiquette to tip the delivery person after he finishes the job.

The argument against tipping is often, “Hey, you don’t need to tip. He’s just doing his job!” But since you’re reading this, you’re probably not a dick. Just because someone gets paid to do a job doesn’t mean it’s not a nice thing to give them a little extra — especially if their jobs are tough and they’ve shown they deserve it by not stealing all your electronics. Here are 11 people you don’t tip, but probably should. To save you the anxiety when it’s time to hand over the money, we even talked to people in each industry to see how much you should give ’em.

Cable/Satellite installers People hate the cable guy, and not just Jim Carrey’s worst movie. They don’t show up when they say they’re gonna! They don’t unscramble all the pay-per-view channels for you like they did back in 1997 at your parents house! And I agree — bad service does not deserve a tip. But sometimes cable guys go above and beyond, especially the satellite installers, who have to fasten a dish in some hard-to-reach spots, like your roof. If they take the time to install it, and then school you on some tips and tricks with your new DVR, or if they hook you up with some extra HDMI cables for no charge, then you need to break out the wallet. Rewarding thankless work that will bring you and your roommates millions of hours of entertainment in the future is the least you can do. So, how much? $20 The airport shuttle driver Airport vans are convenient ways to get to the airport in three to four hours even though you only live 40 minutes away. But they’re so cheap! And that’s why we love them. But because we’re so focused on the cheapness of it, we forget the driver has to make a living. They have to sit in traffic and listen to people’s horrific travel stories all day, and that’s something you could not pay me enough to endure. So, how much? Treat your airport shuttle driver like a cabbie, and tip 15-20%.

Dear Troubled, Tipping really is one of the most confusing customs—one that's had a long and sordid history in the US and is often the subject of heated debates. That's because there are no real “rules” for tipping, and the etiquette of it can seem pretty arbitrary. Besides varying opinions for who and how much to tip, customs vary by country as well. Ask a dozen people when and how much they tip, and you'll get a dozen different answers.

Tipping is about expressing gratitude. The above recommendations are just that—recommendations. You should follow your gut and base your decision on whether to tip or not based on how regularly you see the person, how much they help you out, and perhaps how much their job or livelihood depends on your tip.

A bed delivery that takes all of five minutes, I’ve skipped the tip. Bigger more annoying things that might take a half hour total, maybe 10 each.

I’m pretty cheap. I figure they are paid for the job. I don’t get tips on my job (and don’t expect it). However, when I don’t tip, about half the time they manage to damage something on the way out. Oh! “sorry about that”. So, it’s up to you. That does sound like a very easy, standard delivery. Another factor, I’m in the midwest, which I think has less of a tipping culture than other places.posted by H21 at 11:17 AM on March 9, 2015

I had a delivery with a similar degree of difficulty from Raymour & Flanigan last year. I tipped them $10 apiece. The way I think about it is that delivery jobs are backbreaking (almost literally) and don’t pay that well. If I’m in a position where I’m comfortable enough to be buying a new couch from a moderately upscale place, then I can afford to do something (admittedly small) to offset the pittance that such workers get, especially when the system is benefitting me directly.posted by Johnny Assay at 11:34 AM on March 9, 2015
