It is Normal practice to tip a detailer! I'd like opinions of customers and Pros!

I wouldn't say it was normal like a waitress but it's not unheard of. If you feel based on the work they did the price you paid they went above and beyond then sure you might want to tip them.

No, but it's appreciated. I'd say on average about 25-35% of my clients tip. I always tend to do a little extra work if I have the time too. ;)

Having worked in the service industry during college I tend to tip for a lot of things when I'm happy with the work or service performed.

Ya the wife says I tend to tip to much. I was more curious if it was expected or not!

A quality detailer isn't going to expect a tip. Prices should already be fair compensation.

HOWEVER, I can tell you a detailer will ALWAYS remember good business. This goes for bigger/more expensive jobs as well as those that give a tip. For people who I hire for various services, I try to tip when given great service. I find even giving someone $20 and telling them that lunch tomorrow is on me is always well received. It goes back to the idea of taking care of those that take care of you. I try to do a lot for any of my clients, but my top clients certainly will be given special treatment of me going well out of my way to take care of them.

I'd be afraid the amount would be an insult. If you are going to tip, what's respectable!

On a detail job I wouldn't be insulted by any tip, regardless of the amount. I'd say most of mine seem to fall between 5-10% range, but often they will just round up too ($675 bill made out to an even $700). Gift cards are great option as well! In fact I had a client recently give me a $200 gift card to a nice steak house in town...which I still need to use...

When I've had deliveries such as new appliances, repair work done on an appliance, or even hooking up a satellite receiver, I've always given them $20ea if they are polite and do a good job.

I couldn't have said it any better Marc.
