Don't Reward Carelessness

Many things can go wrong during a delivery: sometimes these are accidents and sometimes they are carelessness. Your delivery person should not cause damage to your house. It is his job to be cautious. You are not going to tip a deliverer that ruins part of your home.

Bottom Line

Damage will occur when moving furniture. In his Tipping Etiquette Guide, James G. Lewis says you have to consider whether it is an accident or a result of carelessness. Lewis writes that the etiquette for tipping a furniture delivery person is £3 to £6, or £13 for larger orders.
