Tipping Delivery Driver

For all you that have had your new Escape trailers delivered what do think is a fair tip for the delivery drive? I am thinking maybe some where around fifty dollars assuming you have good service. I know there is no one right answer when it come to tipping just looking for some input.
Thanks
Mark

Never occurred to me to tip him. I did buy him dinner, since he arrived in the middle of a serious rain storm and we wanted to wait for the rain to slow down before we unloaded...

I did. Two twenties was a small token of our appreciation.

Mark to Mark,
I'm really glad u asked that question because I honestly did not think of that. Picking up new 5.0 in October in Goshen, and if all goes well, I believe I will go with the amount you mentioned. Sounds fair !!

Check the condition of your trailer before tipping the driver. Water drained out of the rear drain holes as the trailer was being unloaded. After opening the trailer entrance door we found the table on the floor and the flooring scratched. The Maxx fan vent was fully open and the floor has a creaking noise from day one. We believe it was the result of water intrusion.

My wife and I like to tip people it gives of us chance to make someone's life a little bit happier. Sometimes it puts a smile on peoples face that will last all day. We are not rich but we do what we can.

Mine was filthy on the outside when it arrived but it was due to weather. I don't see any point in penalizing the driver, he hooks in up in BC and unhooks it at delivery. He has in own sleeping arrangements in the truck and said they only open it at the border if requested.

These guys are amazing. Mine left BC Wed am, delivered to the Central Coast of Cal Thurs am (how he did it is still a mystery!), slept for a couple hours in a parking lot, and was on his way to Phoenix, AZ for a pick-up and figured he be home for the weekend! WOW! Maybe instead of cash, we should be comp'ing him with some Preparation H! That's ALOT of sitting!

Greg
