Doh. Ours helps us load ours. We go to his place to get it.
When we pay at the end of every month, he gives us some of it back.
Plus already charges us less than other customers.
Dunno why. Couldn't tip him if we tried
For a one time delivery, I would say no and cookies are plenty.
My hay guy delivers when I need it and charges a slightly higher fee per bale/round bale just to cover his gas. He also helps me put it up if it is square bales. Rounds just get dropped off the trailer and I put them up after he leaves.
If I choose to pick it up I get it a tad bit cheaper, but then I have to pay for gas and stack the bales myself.
He takes really good care of me and I count him and his wife as friends and do nice things back through out the year, plus they also get a huge goodie basket for the holidays.
I would not expect to be tipped when I am delivering hay to my customers but a bottle of cold water and a snack is always nice and may make it easier next year to get bales delivered if your hay guy is a bit short on hay.
