When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world, there was a sharp decrease in the number of people ordering rides with Uber. Luckily, consumers and independent drivers who use the Uber network were still able to connect through the Uber Connect feature, allowing them to arrange easy and fast same deliveries for all types of goods.

In short, Uber Connect makes sending stuff to your friends, loved ones, and customers a whole lot easier and less stressful!

Many people who request a ride using Uber still do not understand all there is to Uber Connect. This is our complete guide to all there is to know about the Uber Connect platform, so whether you’re a customer or a driver, prepare to be filled in!

What Is Uber Connect?

Uber Connect is a service that allows independent drivers to receive package delivery requests from people who use the Uber app. This offers them an alternative opportunity to earn extra income on top of the money they earn through UberX and UberXL. Now, drivers can easily pick up and transport packages to a designated drop-off location of the app users’ choosing.

It’s a perfect shipping option and unlocks so many new possibilities above and beyond food delivery or catching a ride. It makes local deliveries of all kinds of goods especially simple for consumers as it does not require shipping labels, any contact with the post office, or waiting for up to 72 hours for delivery.

All the client has to do is pack their delivery, open the app, select the Uber Connect option and wait for the driver to arrive. When the transportation provider is finally with you, you will hand the package over and can expect the delivery to be done the same day in pretty much all cases.
