Question How much do I tip the transporter?

Hi, I wasn't sure where to post this??? But I have a transporter delivering today and I'm not sure how much or even if I'm supposed to tip him? I'd sure appreciate any advice.
Thank you very much!

Well I would not tip a transporter, he may even be insulted. He is not really in the customer service industry.

I probably would, he provided you with a service, you are a customer - it's basically a one on one transaction, it's recently after Christmas.

A local trip I'd probably give $10, longer, probably only $20.

Thank you

Thanks for your help. I ended-up just adding an extra $10 in the envelope with the payment. The service was fantastic. I think the best "tip" I can give is to pass along my experience with them. They were exactly on time, bartered a very fair fee and took excellent care of the donkeys I had transported. I was very impressed. If you ever need transport I recommend Darby's Equine Transport out of TX.

Best tip right there! I tried tipping my farrier, he just credited my account & said he doesn't accept tips, he's not a waiter.

Haha I like that. I try and slip an extra fiver in to my trainers hand, and after I helped her out MAJORLY this time last year I got two months of free lessons, every time I tried to pay, she said she'd stop teaching me if I didn't pack it in.

In the long run, you did the best thing, and passing on good will for them in the long run will give them more money ;)
