Answer by bobfein (Bob F.)

First of all, congratulations on your move! Regardless if you are moving a short distance or a long-distance, you should consider tipping your mover -- although across the industry it is considered optional.

In general, you should tip each mover $20 for a full-day of work or $10 for a half-day. You should also offer your mover food and drinks throughout the day, as well as make sure that they take sufficient breaks.

Happy Moving!

Good luck with your move,
