Introduction: If you’re not tipping delivery people, you should be. Here are 10 of the many good reasons to start doing so.
Tipping your furniture delivery men is an essential part of your furniture shopping process. This can’t be emphasized enough. In addition to providing a service, they carry the burden of setting up and assembling all the furniture, so you don’t have to do any work at all (except for making sure you get it out of the box and assembled properly). Obviously, you’ll want to provide them with some financial compensation for this effort in order for them to continue doing it for future customers. However, it’s not the tip I’m talking about today. Here, I’m talking about the tip you give them after you’ve assembled your new piece of furniture. Also known as “referencing,” this is what they’re there for – to make sure that when they deliver your piece of furniture, they don’t leave it in an embarrassing state (like upside down). Luckily, there are a ton of different ways and places for you to tip them. In this article, I’m going to go over the top 10 ways you can tip your delivery guys, so that they know how much you appreciate their work!
1) Thank them for carrying out their duties as well as identifying. This will help them in the future!
2) Give a little extra if they do an excellent job explaining the assembly and use process.
3) Bonus: Tip extra for delivery guys that have a unique and/or funny way of identifying themselves.
4) If you don’t receive your delivery within 30-45 minutes, tip more! This is a bit of deviousness on your part though. You’re basically saying their job is more annoying than others’.
5) Tip for cleaning up the warehouse afterwards. No one else does!
6) Tip for organizing the warehouse. No one else does that either, and a clean warehouse is always good!
7) Tip if they go out of their way to make sure your furniture is in a central location. You can’t move it yourself, after all.
