I have proper movers coming with all the crap I moved from Pittsburgh, but I'm also hiring a smaller, local company to move the stuff I have here, mainly because I'm going from a fourth floor walkup to a fourth floor walkup, and also because one of the things that needs carried up and down eight flights of stairs is an air conditioner.
The local movers are charging me $300. Highway robbery, but, like I said, I don't want to carry an air conditioner up and down that many stairs. Now here's my question: When I booked the company, the man told me tipping was encouraged (this is the complete opposite of the company I used for the big move, who explicitly told me "don't tip -- these guys are getting paid.")
So my question: How much do I tip? It's a $300 job, and I have no idea if there will be two guys or three guys or what. Do I just tip 10% or 20% and divide it equally among the guys? Hand the cash to one guy and be done with it? Or should everyone get a specific amount?
I'm clueless. Somebody tell me what to do.
