How much do you tip Fresh Direct? Fairway delivery? Case of wine delivered by liquor store? Specialty butcher delivery?

I live in an elevator building, no steps outside or in, convenient double parking at the curb.

I do ask them to carry the things down my hall to the kitchen.

    Case of wine delivery--$5.00. The liquor store is only two blocks away.

      My fairway is walking distance, unless its rainy or really crappy weather i do $1/bag plus a few bucks. I have no idea if that's appropriate.....
      For fresh direct about $7. Dunno how i came up with that except that $5 seemed like not enough and $10 sounded like a lot.....

        Not as much as you think? A lot of the Fresh Direct goes to door person buildings, and they don't tip for that, especially when it's just left with building staff.

          I usually tip $5-$7 for grocery delivery. I'd do more if they were parking, coming inside and upstairs and making multiple trips to do so.
