How much do you have to tip the Movers in Boston in 2024

This is a popular question especially when you’re moving in Boston and you are moving for the first time and you are not exactly sure how much you should tip in Boston. Here are the answers below from Born to Move, one of the leading companies in Boston, Massachusetts. 

A general rule for tipping is between $20-$40 for each mover. 

We ask our movers how much they receive the tips every day while working. On an average day, for a 1 bedroom apartment move, you should see between $40-$50 for each person. 

If you are moving a studio apartment, our employees usually receive a $20-$30 tip. 

Three-bedroom house moves require additional time and additional hands. That’s why on average, our customers can tip between $50-$200 for each person for an 8 to 10-hour job.

When you are moving out of state to New York, our employees usually get a tip between $50 and $200 depending on the customer. 

If you are moving from Boston to Miami you should expect at least a $200 tip from a customer.

In general, during the summer moving season, our customers tip more than in the winter moving season but that varies from person to person. 

In the end, I just wanted to say that tips are not required for every mover. It depends on the customer’s mood and satisfaction. Tips are not required, but it’s always greatly appreciated for the hard job that we do at Born To Move.
