Deliveries? Yes. Movers? Yes. The guys installing the sprinkler system? No gratuity. Pest control? No. Cable guy? No. I’m the same as you offering cold drinks and such in those instances. I think you’re good. If you’re blown away by their services, why not call the company and give the technician/service provider a great review? 🙂

No, I don’t tip anyone unless they’ve gone above and beyond with their service, but I like in the UK and we don’t have a tipping culture here.

Is it just me or does it all seem very arbitrary? I hate tipping culture

beethree :  Depends. Some companies and services cannot take tips. Others are union and get paid very well and do not require tipping to componsate them fairly. 

I always get Gatorade, water bottles, and small bags of chips for workers who will be at the house longer than 3 hours

I usually tip the cleaners $10 each but they do a fantastic job. When there was a schedule mix up one week and we got two differnt ladies who didn’t do as good of a job as the usual people so I didn’t tip them, but I know that company pays their workers well. Always tip food delivery, not really anyone else. Water and snacks for for workers.

I’m really against tipping in general. Certain professions like wait staff we always tip because they don’t make money. Where does it stop!? Are we expected to tip everyone we receive a service from then why am I paying them!? Hair people, nail people, the people at the coffee shop, now movers and gardeners and mail man. It’s out of hand
