How much should I tip? Two men from a medium size/professional removal firm, moving small 2 bed house 60 miles to another small 2 bed house. Whole removal is costing about £700. Start at 9am to be loaded up by about 11am and unloaded by about 3 pm ish in London/Kent area.

£30 each?

Really! I must be a right tight arse - I was thinking of minimum £10 - maximum £20 - is that too low?

We tipped 10% - so about £75. They were excellent though, quick, efficient, good-humoured, polite ...... (We liked them a lot esp as they saved us so much hassle grin )

Tipped £80 between 3 men but they did so much for me as I am on my own really went the extra mile

When we moved we tipped each of six guys £ 20 each. We moved to a three storey house on a boiling day and they all worked so hard and were so pleasant. Really earned their tips.

We also tipped 20 quid each for three blokes. Was within same city, but a bugger of a job all the same and they were fantastic.

blimey, I think we usually give £20 to the gaffer to split between them whether it's a 2 or 3 man job. We've used the same firm several times, they must dread doing us.

Never crossed my mind, they charge quite enough already and one of them was so unfit he looked like he was about to collapse.
