uber tips;by Scottie B.

I play Uber this way and it works for me
1/ Never take a request over 8 minutes away without asking where there going
2/ Pull up a pick up point, set stop watch for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes cancel and get a $8.00 no show, time is $$$$
3/ Once your doing a job pause all new requests, that shows less car on line, may cause a surge
4/ Never pick up from railway stations, normally minors and lazy people
5/ Never pickup from Ikea to load flat packs in your car, they walked down there or used public transport
6/ Never pickup from a Macca's store, short trip or after midnight Pax just needs a car to get order in drive thru
7/ Never pick up form a supermarket, the supermarkets now offer delivery services
8/ Never accept a job behind you in peak traffic, it costs you time to try and turn around and then Pax cancels on you
9/ When dropping off in CBD only accept a ping when the pick up is in front of you on the same road or to the left. Time is money and doing blocks of CBD is no way to make $$$. My CBD policy is get out as quickly as I can then log on away from the CBD grid
10/ ALL un accompanied minors WALK, rain, hail or shine and I get $8.00 on a cancel
11/ Parents with under 7yo children are banned due to the state laws regarding child seats. I get $8.00 on a cancel.
12/ Pax looks drunk or drugged "WALK" and I get $8.00 on a cancel. NO SHOW or the CANCEL

14/ The Pax which get in my car get a quality trip home with a bit of banter and I never ever drop off a female of any age until there safely at their front door etc

I hope some of you learn something here and good luck

3. If you are on a job then your car does not show up as an available car? Wouldn't that also not allow you to receive a new job just before you end the current one? If your not sure of this feature, Uber occasionally send you a job request if there is rider near by to your drop off of the current ride.

6. All maccas and hungry jacks jobs I got where from staff finishing work. These where in the suburbs not cbd though. How many of those did you do? Also I wonder what they had as a destination, if home then maybe ok but I also hate drive through while on a job. If they had destination just out side the car park I would have told them no then started the job and end the trip at destination. What can they say to Uber really.

I dont pick up from RSL's or Leagues clubs etc after 10pm. Almost always smelly alcoholic types for a short trip.

1/ Never take a request over 8 minutes away without asking where there going

You will get deactivated (60 now in QLD) for ringing riders to enquire about destinations, and so you should. Just do not accept the ping if you do not want to do it as you are giving all uber drivers a bad reputation.
