Very small job less that $400 for the move. Two guys working around 3 hours if that. I was thinking $10 each.

Same thing here. Job for less than $400. $20 per guy (2 guys + owner of moving company came that day) and they were ecstatic.

If you are happy with the movers and want to tip them here are some rules to guide you:

1) How long were the movers performing your move - if they were only there for 2 hours then you would tip them less than if they performed a 2 day move

2) How many movers were helping you - if you don't have a lot of money but want to let the guys know you appreciated their help; then divide what you can tip by the number of movers

3) If you want to tip them by giving them money for lunch or providing their lunch that is always appreciated

4) The general rule of tipping is to take the move amount and tip 10 to 20% per mover depending on how generous you are feeling
