Talking About Moving Truck Rentals

Hello, my name is Benjamin. Welcome to my site about moving truck rentals. When I had to move across the country for school, I was tasked with taking the moving truck from my hometown to my new residence. The process was a nightmare initially, largely due to my inexperience and unsure expectations. I wish I would have researched the process more before starting out. I learned a lot on the trip though, and now I want to share it with you. This site will cover all you need to know about securing, using and returning a moving truck rental. Please come back soon.

Three Things To Know If You Wish To Tip Your Piano Movers

When it comes time to move your piano, it's not a job you want to handle on your own. Not only can you risk damaging your expensive investment, but you're also at risk of straining your back or otherwise hurting yourself due to the instrument's weight. You don't have to worry about these issues once you hire a crew of professional piano movers. These relocation experts understand the steps necessary to handle piano moving safely and have the right gear to get the job done to your satisfaction. Although many piano moving services stress that tipping is entirely optional, it's an ideal way to express your thanks for the crew's work. Here's what you need to know.

There's An Average Guideline To Keep In Mind

If you plan to proceed with tipping the piano movers, you can plan to give each member of the crew between $20 and $40. When you call to schedule the work, it's a good idea to confirm the number of movers in the crew so that you'll be sure to have enough money -- in cash -- for the tip. At this time, you can also confirm that the moving crew can indeed accept tips just to avoid any potentially uncomfortable situation in the event that the company has a no-tip policy.

You Can Evaluate Several Factors

When it comes to deciding exactly how much you want to tip each piano mover within the suggested range, there are a number of different criteria that you can observe. First, make a point of noticing the care that the crew uses when preparing your piano for the move, moving it throughout your home, loading it in the truck and unloading it at the next destination. You can also consider the crew's interactions with you and evaluate the difficulty of the move based on factors related to your home. For example, you might wish to consider tipping more if the crew had to move the piano up a flight of stairs.

There Are Other Ways You Can Say Thanks

If you really appreciate the job that the piano movers are doing for you, there are some other simple methods beyond tipping that can show your gratitude. Think about offering some basic refreshments; a bottle of chilled water if the move is taking place in the summer is a kind gesture. Likewise, grabbing a few coffees from a nearby coffee shop is sure to be appreciated if the move is taking place during the winter.
