|Pizza||$1-$2 if short distance
$2-$3 for longer distances
$5 or more for large deliveries
Recently I have started to tip 15% if the service is good. Any delays not attributed to the kitchen (Pizza is noticeably cold) will result in a $1 tip or no tip. Make sure you have a good relationship with regular drivers or establishments. It works both ways.
|Furniture / Appliances Large Delivery of any kind (e.g. exercise equipment, air conditioner, refrigerator, etc.)||$5-$10 per person minimum. If delivery is large, heavy or difficult, or requires assembly, a larger tip is suggested, perhaps $20 per person.|
|Flowers||$2-$5 for flowers
$5-$10 if it is a large plant or for heavy or large deliveries
Suggested by Dan Matz
|Orders of $30 or less:
No tip necessary, but a small tip (50 cents - $2) is appreciated, especially if the carry-out counter is busy, especially if the customer needs silverware or requests seasonings.
Orders from $30-$60:
No tip necessary, but appreciated if packaging the order is a huge pain, 5-10 percent is expected if I help the customer take it to their cars.
Orders of $60 and up:
These are often from offices, who always ask for plates, plastic silverware, condiments, and lots of rolls (complimentary from my store). 8%-10% expected, especially if I help the customer take it out.
