Have you already considered driving with Uber? Do you currently have an account with Uber? Are you thinking that food delivery might bring in extra cash? Well, then you might be interested in signing up to deliver with Uber Eats.
What Exactly is Uber Eats?
Uber Eats is a food delivery app by Uber. So, if you already have an Uber account, even better! It's very similar to Shipt, another opportunity you've probably heard of. Note some people deliver both of these companies simultaneously to maximize earnings.
You can actually do both — drive with Uber picking up passengers and make food deliveries with Uber Eats. Or, you can choose one over the other.
How Does Uber Eats Work?
By now, you have probably heard of Uber, the popular ride request app, where qualified drivers with a vehicle not older than eight years old, can earn by driving as an independent contractor.
Obviously, you must also have a valid state driver's license, among other requirements, but you do not have to have a commercial license or CDL. You can check their website for other applicable requirements
Once you’re ready to get on the road , just go ahead and download the app and begin using it to connect with users requesting rides.
Customers are also using their app to find drivers just like you to deliver their food. And even better, Uber Eats allows you to make deliveries with a bike or scooter in some cities. So this is definitely an option for people without cars.
Uber Eats is currently available in many cities nationwide.
How Does Uber Eats Vary From Just Driving with Uber?
It doesn't vary all that much. The main difference is delivering food to a customer as opposed to delivering a customer to a destination.
How Does Uber Eats Work?
Once you complete the activation process, your vehicle will be inspected for safety.
What Else Does It Take to Drive with Uber Eats?
Besides a valid state driver's license, insurance, and accepted vehicle, here are some of the requirements:
- be at least 19 years old in the USA and 21 in Canada.
- have 1 or more years of driving experience.
- be able to lift at least 30 pounds.
Overall, the sign up steps for Uber Eats is easier than the sign up step to drive with Uber's ride share app.
And if you are using your car with Uber Eats rather than a bike or scooter, it's fine if the car made in 1998 or newer(something that isn't OK if you are an Uber driver-partner).
