Default OOT: How much do I tip the movers?

Sadly, I am moving tomorrow (New Years Eve). I will no longer live in bachelor pad lifestyle I have grown accustomed to, time to downsize so I can save for future expenses.

I hired a moving team of 3 men and a truck. There are no stairs involved, but my hallway is easily 1 city block long because I live at the end of a pier in the middle of a river. we estimate the move will be done in 4 hours, it would have been even faster if it wasn't for some fragile furniture that will take some time to dismantle safely. My new home is only 5 blocks away, so travel time will be virtually nil.

For their services I am being charged $115/hour, so the estimate is $615 (I think tax is included). How much should I tip the team? Should I tip each person separately, or just the team's foreman?

Thanks, and happy new year!

TT,

I believe this has already been discussed in detail here.

However, because you are a nice guy.

Thanks El D, never saw the moving threads although I know tipping has been covered ad-nauseum (sp?). I think $90 for the team should do based on your link, thanks!
