How much would you tip a furniture delivery person?

My aunt is giving us a couch and loveseat today. She has a guy bringing it to our house. How much would you tip him for bringing it here and moving it into your family room?

  • $25 for that. If it's a store that I purchased furniture and I am paying for delivery and the delivery guys are good (on time, professional, set everything up, assemble) then I tip them $10 or $20 each. It really depends on what type of furniture was delivered and how much assembly was involved.

    It's not a store, as I said, it's a guy doing some stuff for my aunt. No assembly required. Just moving it through the front door into my family room.

  • I thought it was their job and that they got paid to do exactly that task?

    this is not a guy from the store. As I explained, we are getting the furniture from my aunt. This is a guy she knows who is going out of his way to bring the stuff to us.

  • I would definitely tip him $25 as a thank you. I mean, it's still a great deal if you're getting a couch and loveseat for 25 bucks, right?

  • I'd do $20-25. He's doing you and your aunt a favor by using his vehicle/gas and muscles.

    FWIW, when it's a delivery from a store I'll tip under extenuating circumstances like it's 100 degrees, pouring out or something that's a real bitch to move. Then I usually do $10 a guy. I figure it buys them lunch, ya know?
