They've been at it for 30 mins and still not close to done because of the heavy lifting and stairs.


They don't have a stair climbing dolly? I can bring a fridge up a flight of stairs by myself with one. As long as there are no turns. then it gets hard.
I'm thinking about getting the electric one then it's really easy.
I just bought an oven dolly, whose only job is to move wall ovens around.

30 minutes, not close to done

And you are still wanting to tip them? Here's a tip, it doesn't take 30 minutes to get a refrigerator in an out of anywhere. It's not tough

Where did I say you should tip? Just saying your UPS comparison is not even close

And I have no problem tipping when someone performs a service and goes above and beyond.



yep....you get take out, no tip, you get "free delivery"..then tip.

in mail/package businesses delivery is the business....in refrigerators, food sales...delivery is an added service

re: How much tip for refrigerator delivery?


The guys that delivered mine hooked everything up, installed all the shelves and removed all of the plastic film and tape

They also showed me some of the features

They don't exactly drop it off and leave

Not saying it requires a tip, but it's not as quick and dirty as some of you act

You don't think installation is part of their job?

Let's say Lowes didn't provide free installation but Home Depot did...where would people buy appliances?

The "free" delivery is in the price of the appliance.

I bought something too big to carry for one of my son's Christmas presents. Dude wheeled it out on a cart and I tipped him 10.00 and wished him "Merry Christmas".

Completely different. I would do the same.

But when you purchase a refrigerator, you negotiate a price, with or without delivery. The people that deliver it are paid to deliver them, all day, every day.

Now, if they came to my house and ran into a problem, and did something over and above what's expected, sure, tip them.

Nuts....

I'd still slip a fiver or something. Just shows some appreciation. Just glad I don't do that job.

More than that. Plus, it was the last one in stock that he personally held for me.

Good for you. Hope you pull over in traffic and tip every dude working on the road crew, or cut off 18 wheeler drivers on the interstate to roll down their windows and give them a $5 spot. More power to you.
