Driving for Uber Eats is a great side gig with tons of flexibility! Click through to find out if it's a good fit for you.

First, for anyone living under a rock, Uber (not to be confused with Uber Eats) is the new-age taxi service that lets people like YOU get rides from…people like YOU.  If you want to partner with Uber, you apply, go through the background screening process, submit info on your car, and complete the activation process! If all goes well, you’ve got an awesome side gig.  

Partnering with Uber Eats is just like partnering with Uber, only with way more advantages and a more refined end goal: you’re just delivering people’s food.

Why Uber Eats is the Perfect Partner for a Side Gig

Partnering with Uber is a great side gig, but partnering with Uber Eats is even better.  There are way more advantages and way more flexibility.  Here’s what’s so cool about this particular side job:

No One’s in Your Car

Just you, the breeze blowing through your hair, and someone else’s food. No strangers, ever.

You Can Drive Your Trusty Ole’ Wagon

If you want to succeed as a classic Uber partner, you need a nice car.  Not so with Uber Eats.  No one cares what you drive!  As long as their food gets to them, that’s all that matters.

You Can Make the Decision Not to Work

This is one of the greatest advantages of partnering with Uber, and it’s true with Uber Eats partnerships too.  If you can’t work, you don’t have to.

You Can Use a Bike or Scooter

This only works in certain cities, but many Uber Eats partners are able to deliver food with a bike or scooter!  This means that this side job could actually rank as a job that also provides exercise!

The Approval Process is Easy

You pretty much know before you start whether you’ll be approved or not – standard application, background check, etc.  This isn’t the kind of thing where only 2 spots are open in an area.  The more the merrier!

2 Comments on The Coolest New Side Gig: Partner with Uber Eats as a Delivery Driver

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this! I just found your blog and love it! One note though – I was so excited about how perfect this was for me (I very much need something where I can work from home or bring my son to work with me), but it turns out at least in my city, your vehicle has to be a 2002 or newer (and mine is a 2001). I don’t know if that’s the case for all the cities or not, but at least where I live even to do Uber Eats I had to have a 2002 or newer model that is at least 4 doors. So, back to the drawing board.

    • OH NO!! I had no idea. I even asked them about that and they said you could totally drive your old beat up car! What a bummer. Were you able to find anything else that is promising? There are a lot of other posts on my site that list different working opportunities for stay-at-home moms. Let me know if you need help finding them! They may be helpful. I also have a couple posts that are scheduled over the next couple of weeks with some more cool money-making opportunities, so check back!
