Suggestions for delivery drivers in Uber Eats

Delivering food for Uber Eats can be a smart and convenient way through which you can earn some quick money. However, it is different for those delivery persons who are doing this fulltime and thus need smart ways to earn their bread and butter. Some suggestions or tips that delivery drivers in Uber Eats can use in their work have been described as follows.

  • Delivery drivers in Uber Eats must always practice great customer service as this can reflect positively on their tips. The customer needs to always be greeted with a smile and wished a good day. Delivery drivers can also call or message the customer about changes in their order or any delays in the food delivery.
  • Delivery drivers need to be aware of the time slots in which they are making their deliveries. Uber Eats pays more when orders are being picked up and delivered during peak hours. In cities, these hours are usually between 11 am to 2 pm for lunch and post-work hours. Delivering food on weekends can also bring in more cash to the delivery driver.
  • Drivers also need to be smart about the orders that they are picking up in Uber Eats. If the location is too far away, they will be spending too much on gas and may even waste more time. It also pays to learn about the restaurants and their processes. Restaurants which are mismanaged can eat into your precious time.
  • Ensuring that the items are being packed and carried properly is another tip that delivery drivers need to remember. Drivers often carry their food using an insulated bag. The hot foods and cold foods must be kept separate from each other in order to maintain the quality of the dish from the restaurant to the customer’s table.
  • Gas can be quite expensive and this can pile up to an excessive amount if the delivery is being done through car or scooter. One way to avoid this is to use a bicycle. Using a bicycle for deliveries will ensure that you are saving plenty of money on fuel and can also help you avoid parking tickets. Furthermore, Uber Eats will automatically provide a smaller route.
  • If the customer is opting for a contactless delivery, one thing to remember is to take a picture of the food on the customer’s doorstep in order to avoid misunderstandings. While taking the picture, remember to include the insulated bag in the background.
