Having your runners constantly move around on your carpet from people walking on them and accidentally kicking them can be a real pain. No one wants to have to keep bending down to fix the runners and make sure they stay in one place, so thankfully there are ways that you can keep your runners from moving around on your carpet, and they're simple solutions.

The first method is to buy some double-sided adhesive carpet tape which will hold the runners down on the carpet and prevent them from sliding around when they're walked on. What you need to do is apply a few pieces of the double-sided tape to the bottom of the runner, preferably one in each corner of the runner and a few in the middle to provide some support. Then peel off the bottom layer of each piece of tape to reveal the adhesive and press the runner firmly down onto the carpet to ensure that it takes hold. The double-sided carpet tape is safe for use on carpets and will not damage it at all. 

Another solution is to buy some non-slip mats to place under the runners. These mats are usually made of rubber or another substance that will grip the carpet and the runner and hold it in place. It will create a resist surface that will not move or slide when being walked on, and is perfect to use on your runners so that they won't move on the carpet. Simply lift up the runners and place the mats beneath them.

Tipping movers is always a little tricky, and you should check if the moving company you hire has any official policy on tipping on their website. Usually tipping 5 percent of the cost of the move is acceptable. If a mover says that he is not allowed to accept tips, don’t force the issue, he is likely telling the truth and forcing him to take a tip could get him in trouble.
