Is it customary to tip a Mobile Service Ranger?
1 million dollars is customary.
I was joking, of course. I think slipping them a Benjamin would be nice.
I would slip a $100 bill
I tried, I was told they are not allowed to accept tips
If they don't accept my $100, I keep adding $50 to the tip until he accepts it.
@stopnair Good tip!
Well, I went ahead and gave the two guys a tip. They seemed pretty taken aback, but they did accept it. Sounds like they went against policy, but I won't hold it against them.
Thanks everyone for your quick responses.
Hilarious rumors on a rumor mill are policy now.
I tipped mine 2 benjamins and he took it.
What are they fixing that you guys are tipping? Mine has come it twice and has been there max 5 minutes each time.
I had a ranger come out to do a tire rotation for the reasonable price of $97.50. I thought it would be nice to slip him a big tip but people tell me I am a mean nasty person so it did not seem appropriate.
What other professionals do you tip?
Generally you tip for good service. The exception would be if the service technician was the owner of the service provider company.
So I would tip the Ranger, but not if Elon himself was the Ranger.
I've never tipped any car mechanic with ICE. I won't with the T either.
.....unless the Ranger flips the P switch for me..... would tip big for that...
After 25100 miles I have never needed service other than free tire rotate at America's Tire.
When I replaced a water heater, the tech would not take a tip. It was a Saturday and he was away from his family, so I said the tip was for his family not him. He took it.
Tipping and who you tip is not unique to TESLA. There are no special rules for TESLA owners in the tipping department.
How about the sales and delivery advisors? Grocery store clerk?
Don't spoil the ranger or mechanic; otherwise, later they think we owe them money. If we want to show them our appreciation, just offer them snack and drink if they like to have, right?
I only tip where I know the person is getting paid a below average salary and relying on tips to make a living (like wait staff in restaurants). I believe that companies should pay the staff enough so they are not dependent on tips but it is what it is. I don't tip everyone in the service industry. I do excellent work at my job, I don't get any tips nor do I expect it.
A Tesla ranger should not be tipped.
They have female rangers...I'd give a tip..but only the tip
