Are you supposed to tip furniture delivery professionals?

Answer

It is not mandatory to tip furniture delivery workers. The furniture retail company charges each customer a delivery charge at the time of purchase that pays for the work it takes to deliver the furniture to the customer's home. However, if a company permits delivery professionals to accept gratuity from customers, then it is perfectly acceptable to tip in appreciation for receiving good service.

A tip is a means to thank service workers for providing a comfortable experience. Generous tipping may also guarantee prompt and courteous service the next time the customer patronizes the business or service provider. The amount tipped depends upon the standard practices of the region. When considering offering a tip to furniture delivery workers, the amount is dependent upon the extent of the delivery and level of service.
