Kay, be prepared with something yummy (lemonade and home-made cookies??) for when the truck comes. The delivery person will be tired from other deliveries before yours, and you may be able to persuade him to wait while you inspect the container for damage and possibly even give a look inside. Everything will probably be perfect, but just in case, it’s wise to make sure, before he leaves. Happy harping!!
Generally no, you don’t tip the delivery guys unless they do something extra or something particularly difficult. Like if they carry the box up a difficult flight of stairs or have to do some tricky maneuvering to get into your house.
Congratulations, Kay! I know you’re just going to love your new harp, and we’ll need pics of you with it, of course! I was just about to speculate that you were getting a Camacoyama Lyon & Salvi Venu-Litzer with gold column, natural base, mahogany body, and walnut neck, lol!
Tony- My how times have changed. Years ago when Mildred Dilling would ship a harp to me for repair, she would always include in her first payment a few extra dollars to tip the driver. That used to be the way. I don’t know when it changed.
