Vehicle Transport Tip?

I don't get it, are you not already paying them a fairly negotiated wage to complete a successful delivery?
 
And here I thought this was going to be a thread about the secrets of transporting the Jeep!

BTW - I personally tip everyone who provides good, solid service...YMMV.

@Stealth7 - not sure what the full cost of the transport was for you, but I have had several vehicles transported across the country and overseas. I usually pass a Benjamin to the driver.
 
Last time I had one shipped, I threw a hundo at the driver and they told me it wasn't necessary so I don't think it's really expected. I made him take it anyway because they did a good job and weren't one of the sheisty companies you hear about all the time. Shout out to https://www.a1autotransport.com/ if any needs a rec on who to use.

Reasonable price? From what location to what part of the country destination?
 
Stop with this tipping nonsense. No wonder our society turned into "everyone expects something extra". Every time i've had a car shipped i went directly to the owner opeartor by skipping the middle man. I paid what they asked and the only demand they had they all wanted CASH. If they expected more they shouldve asked for more upfront.
 
I have had several pieces of heavy equipment trucked across the country. Skidders, excavators, wheel loaders and tractors here are a few things I have learned and been told on how things work.
1. the driver / company negotiated a price so pay it, no more no less unless there is an instance of damage that needs to be addressed.
2. Never help load or unload, bind and or secure the load. It is the driver’s responsibility from point A to B and if your hands touch the load you could be held responsible, for example let’s say a loose binding results in damage. This also carries over to number 3.
3. All carriers are bonded or insured and should never ask you for more insurance. if they do refuse the business and find another carrier. Carry over from 2 if you are involved with the loading/unloading process and something happens that insurance company will do everything it can to place blame on you so they don’t have to pay. Let the driver do all the work, it’s their job.
