    my mother just moved up here from TX, the movers are unloading and she wants to know how much to tip them.

    There are three guys, I told her $100?

    When we moved to our current house in 2009, the two-man crew started around 8:30am, loaded out the belongings at the storage facility until noon, came to the house, loaded it until about 8pm, drove from OKC to TUL, unloaded until around 4am.

    Tip was $100 each.

    The stuff they either stole or broke will be plenty... She may want to let them know that there will be a tip after they're done so they are extra careful...

    Depends on how they do. Chuckleheads get nothing, if they a clearly doing a good job depends on how long it takes.

    they did great and worked quickly (but not important, it was not an hourly rate). she did not want to give them more than $100 but they seemed happy with it.
