About the job
Everyone knows Uber as a rideshare service. After all, they provide quite five million rides every single day. But that’s not all they are doing. Recognizing that it already had an outsized network of drivers, Uber launched the UberEats service in 2014. Today, their delivery partners are ready to offer food delivery in dozens of cities across six continents. UberEats allows customers to order meals from local restaurants. From fast food joints to nice restaurants, UberEats makes it possible for patrons to have a meal delivered straight to their door.
Unlike driving for Uber during a rideshare role, delivery drivers do two basic things - devour food and take it to the customer’s home. Depending on the town you're employed in, you’ll either need to walk the order to the customer’s front entrance or have them meet you at your car for curbside delivery.
Uber delivery drivers never need to handle or carry cash. Customers pay via mastercard and every transaction done online.
In most cases, you need a vehicle to drive from the restaurant to the customer’s home or office. UberEats allows bike delivery and scooter delivery in select cities — mostly in condensed urban areas. And once in a while, some drivers even deliver on foot.
If you’re driving a car, your vehicle must be from 1999 or later. Since you’re not actually transporting passengers, the vehicle requirements for Uber Eats are less stringent than for Uber itself.
Assuming that your car meets the requirement, you've got to even have a policy in your own name. If you borrow a vehicle from a relative or friend, your name must be listed on the policy. If you’re unsure whether your vehicle meets the special requirements for your particular city or region or if you've got the other questions, you'll also speak with the Uber support team directly.
