I just bought $1400 worth of furniture from a chain furniture store. (Side note: After saving up for months, I am so excited to finally have furniture!) The delivery cost was included in the bill ($89 for delivery, which includes bringing it inside, setting it where we want it, unwrapping preassembled pieces and putting on couch legs).
How much should we tip the movers? We got 2 office chairs, 2 desks that we have to assemble (pretty light weight), 2 preassembled dressers (not solid wood, fairly light weight), a sofa with chaise, a love seat, and an 8×10 rug.
Since it will probably be fairly hot, I plan to offer bottle water/gatorade and a few single serve bags of a snack like chips. I’m assuming there will be 2 guys.
They will have to go up 3 flights of stairs. Our apartment is somewhat difficult to get to as well, as it is on the back side of the building.
I was thinking $40 total (so $20 each)? Is that reasonable?
Thank you for the advice =0)
