Tipping the delivery guy?

This is my first rv purchase(bought a 5th wheel)

Is it standard to tip the delivery driver? He proactively told us he is getting our unit washed before he brings it, and will be detailing the interior. Is this usual? Do I tip? If so, how much? Shooting in the dark here... please help

This is so helpful.

Also, I should probably clarify. When I mention delivery guy, I mean literally the guy that is driving the coach to us. We bought it and are having it delivered to our home about 1000m away.

This tipping thing gas gotten out of hand.
Delivery person is being paid to deliver it, so he's just doing his job. Tipping is for superior service and should never be expected.

Perfect. This is exact what I was hoping to find out. The level of service he has provided is unexpected so I was taken aback and not sure what to do.

Thank you for your reply.

I don't think tipping is ever "wrong". It's up to you and you should tip what you think is right. I doubt the delivery guy is expecting any tip at all.

20+ years ago when I was delivering appliances, tipping was a nice, but unexpected, bonus. Some of the drivers would complain, but I told them that tipping was never part of the job description. It was nice when it happened, but never expected.
Now that I deliver batteries for a living, I might get an occasional calendar, but I in no way expect a tip. The occasional compliment is great, but I wouldn't accept money if offered!
Now, a discount on any auto parts I might need is a whole different story!
