HELP THE CREW HELP YOU
Effective interaction with the movers can make things proceed much more smoothly and pleasantly. At the start of the move, you should meet all of the movers, noting each person’s name and taking special note of the crew leader. Acquaint the movers with some of the basics, such as the location of the bathroom designated for crew use, where they can find drinking water, and an outside area where they may take breaks. You may also want to provide trash receptacles in the areas where the movers will be taking breaks. Make sure there is a sufficient supply of water, bathroom tissue, and paper towels for them.
After the move, if you are pleased with the job that your movers have done, sending a letter of praise to the moving company will reflect well on the team who performed your move. Campbell Moving also wants to encourage our customers to use our Customer Survey on our website. This is a valuable tool to us so we can track the level of service that our movers are providing and to ensure that we keep our A+ ratings and keep our customers 100% satisfied. Though not expected, it’s a nice way to show appreciation for the mover’s high-quality work by means of a cash tip. Industry answers vary, but the consensus seems to be about $3 per hour for each mover or 5% of the total invoice divided equally amongst the movers. Keep in mind, the difference between a $3000 move and a $10,000 move may simply be the distance traveled by the movers. The time it takes to load and unload may be the same. In situations like this, the $3 per hour method seems to be most appropriate.
