How to complete an UberEATS trip?
When you receive an UberEATS trip request, the screen will say “UBEREATS” at the top:
Step 1: Accepting a trip
When you accept an UberEATS trip request, you will be directed towards the restaurant to pick up the food. When you arrive at the restaurant you will see the pick up instructions that guide you to the best place to wait.
Step 2: Pick up instructions
Note that you will only see these pick up instructions if you are using Uber maps.
If you are using Google Maps or WAZE, then click back into the Uber app when you have arrived at the restaurant to see the pick up instructions.
Step 3: Verify items
When the restaurant is handing over the food, click on the “VERIFY ITEMS” button and you will see the following screen (See image to right)
We suggest that you verbally confirm with the restaurant the items on the “VERIFY ORDER” screen are in the bag that the restaurant is handing you. Once you have confirmed the order, click “YES” to confirm all items are accounted for.
Step 4: Starting the trip
Only when you verify the items in the App will you be able to swipe right to START TRIP. Once you have started the trip, you will be directed to the drop off location where the eater will be waiting.
Step 5: Ending the trip
End the UberEATS trip when you have handed over the order to the eater. Remember that the UberEATS fare is based on time and distance so you don’t want to miss out by ending the trip too early!
Want to contact someone on the trip?
There are three parties that you can contact during an UberEATS trip:
