  • Actually when we got direct TV, the guy drove 8 hours to install our system, we live in a rural area and so anyway my husband felt for the guy and gave him $10 to get himself some lunch for the trip back....

  • No. My husband did installations for a while and there are no tips involved.

  • it's not mandatory..

    however sometimes I'll tip an extra $5.00-$10.00 for such services or if I just baked I'll give him/her some baked goods, just because my father is a service man.. and I know the drives can suck.

  • For people that do services like that I don't tip them but I offer them a soda, water or cookies.
