Enough for them to buy lunch (not Milt's prices).  :)

We had a piano delivered and they charged and extra $150 because of the stairs and turn. Crazy.
Did you tip them?  :)

I tip highly variable amounts, dependent on how fair I feel the rate was, the difficulty of the job, and level of service I received. For a job similar to the OPs, I'd tip 0-20, usually closer to the high end. Last time I moved I tipped 50 each (3 hour job).

Milt's is pretty cheap for a quality kosher restaurant.  Just wait till you get to Shallot's.
I have a feeling you're more of a Ken's Diner kind of guy...one of my favorites from my childhood.

Wasn't sure if it really went downhill or if it was my more vivid childhood imagination.

Is it normal/legal to add a mandatory %18 tip?
