Square Cow Moovers - Your Professional Moving Company

No, we’re not referring to the infamous myth of pushing over cows in a pasture. In fact, if you’re one of those considering such an activity, beware: cows might just tip back someday!

However, in the world of moving, “cow tipping” has a different, more positive meaning. It involves showing appreciation to your hardworking movers, affectionately referred to as “Square Cows,” for their efforts in helping you move. Let’s delve into this often misunderstood topic through a mini Q&A session to clarify any concerns.

Is Tipping an Obligation?

Absolutely not! Tipping your square cows is not an obligation. It is a voluntary gesture to acknowledge their exceptional service. If you feel your movers have gone above and beyond, a tip is a great way to express your gratitude. Rest assured, no square cow will ever expect a tip or show dissatisfaction if you choose not to give one. If you do decide to tip, expect a big smile and a heartfelt thank you in return.

Will My Belongings Be Treated Poorly If I Don’t Tip?

Never. Our square cows pride themselves on treating every customer’s belongings with the utmost care and respect. It is ingrained in their training to handle your items as if they were their own. Whether you tip or not, your belongings will always be in safe and respectful hands.

How Much Should I Tip?

There is no definitive answer to this question, as tipping is a personal choice. However, after years in the moving business, we’ve observed that a 10% tip of your total moving cost is a common practice among those who choose to tip. This amount can vary depending on your satisfaction level and budget. We provide this guideline merely as a general rule of thumb for those seeking a standard reference.


Tipping your movers, or “cow tipping,” is a thoughtful way to show appreciation for a job well done, but it is by no means a requirement. Your movers will continue to provide exceptional service regardless of whether a tip is given. If you have any further questions about tipping or wish to discuss the ethics of tipping, our friendly team at the office, including our three expert bulls, is always ready to assist.
