Tipping Movers – How Much to Tip:

Consumers put a lot of faith in professional movers, which is why good ones are as prized as a competent and fair mechanic. As a customer, you are entrusting all of your possessions, prized and otherwise, to people you may not even have been introduced to before they started taking your stuff and loading it into a truck. Tipping Movers Although movers are considered part of the service trade, there is usually a lot more riding on their job performance than, say, a waitress or someone who cuts your hair. If the waitress drops your rye toast, she can quickly get you a new order and, hey, your hair will grow out. If a mover, however, does a poor job packing, drops your family heirloom or drags your furniture across the wood floor, there is a lot more at stake.

Relocating to the US is a big step. It used to be a tiring process earlier filled with long to do lists and multiple packing lists. With the increasing population of Indians in the US, things have changed drastically. However, a lot of Indians are still in the mindset that things we use in India would not be available there. Hence, they shop madly before going to the US, adding unnecessary extra baggage! Here is a handy list of what you should and should not buy from India while moving to the US: What to buy Medicines and prescriptions Some of the common medicines we use in India might not be available in the US.
