How To Thank Your Movers For A Job Well Done
Moving is without a doubt one of the most stressful and tasking activities in life which is why many people end up hiring professional movers. Unfortunately, most home owners assume that paying for the movers’ services is enough to show appreciation for all the heavy lifting. If your moving company has demonstrated professionalism and care during the move, here are some of the few ways you can thank them besides that paycheck:
The movers may not be expecting you to do any heavy lifting but they sure don’t expect you to be sitting around doing nothing either. Helping during the move can be anything for removing obstructions from their way to keeping kids and pets grounded so they don’t distract them. You can also be helping to seal boxes and take out the light ones out to the curb. Be available to assist with anything that they need and also to answer questions.
Provide refreshments and a resting area
Depending on how much stuff you have, your movers might have to take a break in between to catch their breath. Provide a nice shaded area for them to sit and if possible some cold juice or water to hydrate them so they can keep going. You will be surprised how much that gesture will motivate them to work faster.

Praise and encourage them throughout the move
As the movers are doing their job, be sure to mention how professional they are and acknowledge every impressive thing they do. Commend them for arriving on time, being so friendly and having such strong arms. A bit of ego-boosting especially to men will go a long way.
Just like it is not required to give refreshments, tipping is up to the home owner. If your movers did exceptionally well, be sure to ask their employer if you can tip them. Few things are more appreciated than some cash even if you buy them lunch and drinks.
Send a thank you note
Verbal gratitude is good but not as good as a written one. Not only will the note hold more water, but it will also be seen by the employer and the movers can keep it for a long time. Thank you notes can also be used as reference to other customers in future so it will be very valuable in the long run.
Write a good review
Most companies will not ask you to review them but it’s one of the best ways to say thank you. There are many people out there who choose a company by just looking at other customers review so a good review can go a long way. Be sure to praise them and be specific on what you liked about their services.
Showing gratitude towards any service provider’s especially movers is very important to boost their morale. Even if they have already finished you work, the boost can help them to keep going and do even better in their next job.
