Re: How much do you tip a car transport driver?

I didnt ever tip. Figured I paid the outfit over $1K to ship each way. IF they damage the car they pay, and I doubt they would do anything else, far more exotic cars grace those transporters than a viper. If you are worried, its probably be smart to tip the driver $50-100 on the way out, but on the way back, chances are the tuner wont tip the driver, so accept the car and call it good.

Re: How much do you tip a car transport driver?

I transport cars all the time throughout the 48 states, and I've never been tipped. Although one guy in LasVegas gave me 20 bucks after I brought him his car, and told me to go relax, and have a couple drinks. I guess I would call that a tip, but I just thought it was a hell of a nice gesture.... Thanks !!

Red's got it right. If you get the opportunity to tip BEFORE the trip, then sometimes it does some good. After the fact...well it becomes a courtesy call [img]/images/graemlins/supergrin.gif[/img]

Re: How much do you tip a car transport driver?

A hearty Thank You and a firm hand shake. That's all I've ever tipped them.
