    1) What navigation app is that the best?

    I like Waze because it seems to always give me the simplest shortcuts and saves me time. an obstacle to WAZE is that it doesn’t tell you what side of the road your destination is on. The app also won’t repeat the ultimate destination so you'll find the house or street number easily. Using WAZE also uses more data because you continue to need to run the Uber Driver app at an equivalent time. Ultimately, the reliability of the navigation of Waze vs Google Maps vs Uber Navigation is superior overall. Plus, it's free!

    2) What to try to do if I'm not getting any delivery requests?

    First thing is to form sure your app is updated.

    It is tough to mention whether you ought to drive around hoping to urge closer to different restaurants. I tend to park on the brink of a hub of restaurants to save lots of money on gas. you actually need to know the world and demand on certain days and times so you don’t waste some time.

    Just don’t sit ahead of someone’s driveway during a residential district after a drop-off though. return to a billboard area and you'll get more pings needless to say.

    3) Do I want an insulated bag? Where do I buy one?

    I had one sent to my house once I signed up and therefore the cost was beginning my first pay. From my understanding, Uber not requires you to get one but I feel it's an honest idea.

    When I enter a restaurant I always bring my UberEats branded bag so it's easier to urge someone’s attention to inform them you're with Uber to select up an order. Many places have a symbol that tells you where to select up the order if you're an Uber driver.

    I have gone into places once I first started and waited in line where customers were ordering, not realizing the food was ready and there was a spot for UberEats pickups.

    I perceive having my bag helps me get recognized faster, particularly in busier restaurants. This ultimately decreases the wait times within the restaurant on behalf of me.

    4) Are multiple orders worth it?

    In my opinion, multiple orders are definitely worthwhile although there's some debate about this. You sacrifice the extra pickup fee, as you simply get paid once. you are doing get a second drop-off fee and increased kilometers.

    Sometimes you are doing need to wait a few extra minutes for the second-order to be prepared. In my opinion, it’s worthwhile. You save time by avoiding the wait and drive time for the second order.

    5) How do I buy help from Uber Customer Service?

    It is tough to urge support from Uber for sure! they're not very transparent if you're trying to find the Uber telephone number for customer service or driver support.

    You can also access the telephone number for Uber Support in your Driver App. Head to your Account, then Help and click on on the blue phone within the top right corner.

    Note, this may bring you to the most Uber support number. they'll just re-direct you to the UberEats support number counting on your issue. repeatedly they also tell you only to use the in-app messaging support feature. There isn’t really an e-mail address for Uber Support so you've got to message them this manner in-app.

    6) I'm already an Uber driver. Do I meet UberEats requirements?

    If you’ve already been fully concurred as a rideshare driver for Uber — albeit it’s only for a basic service like UberX — you are doing meet all UberEats demand. If you would like to start out delivering food between your ride requests, you merely got to attend the “Driver Preferences” section of your Uber Driver app and toggle on UberEats requests.

    7) Am I acceptable to become an Uber driver if I meet UberEat’s demand?

    Unfortunately, UberEats drivers don't automatically qualify to drive for Uber. Uber driver requirements are more strict, so albeit you and your vehicle are otherwise qualified, you’ll still minimally got to complete a vehicle inspection before you’re approved to require rideshare requests.

    8) I don’t own a vehicle or a motorcycle. am I able to deliver on foot?

    Unfortunately, UberEats doesn't support walking deliveries, so you want to have a car, scooter, or bike (depending on your market) to qualify as a courier. If you're still curious about on-foot deliveries, you'll consider Grubhub and DoorDash, both of which accept walkers in select cities.

    9) Am I able to drive for multiple food delivery apps at once?

    Just as you'll drive for Uber and Lyft at an analogous time, it's possible to drive for multiple food delivery apps — like UberEats, Postmates, and Grubhub — all directly.

    This can assist you to maximize your earnings and obtain back-to-back delivery requests. Just confirm to travel offline your other apps once you accept a food order on one, as you don’t want constant notifications when you’re already busy with a pick-up or drop-off.

    10) Am I able to deliver for UberEats and drive for Uber?

    Yes, you can. In fact, Uber encourages eligible drivers to try to do this. you'll make both sorts of deliveries using the Uber driver app (though customers need to use a separate UberEats app to put orders).

    You can even prefer to receive both passenger and UberEats delivery requests during an equivalent shift. this might mean that right after you drop off a passenger, you head to select up an Uber Eats food order. you are doing have the choice to disable this feature if you favor just delivering food or transport passengers, but we recommend having both enabled to maximize your potential earnings.
