Beyond What It Looks Like: 4 Ways to Make Money with Delivery Jobs

If a friend texts you and tells you that he or she has started working as a delivery driver, you’ll probably think of companies like [UberEATS,] right? Yes, these are the most common delivery apps out there, but they’re not the only ones! There’s a lot more out there than you think, and food delivery is one of your options. You can deliver packages, products, and online orders, help other people carry their stuff when they move, deliver laundry and dry cleaning, or even deliver exclusively in the hospitality industry if you want to gain experience in that field.

  1. Food delivery
    There’s always someone hungry, and with the busy lives we all lead, ordering food delivery is very common. That’s why you’ll never run out of deliveries to make! On Appjobs.com, some of the jobs you’ll find in different food delivery cities include: [UberEATS,] Deliveroo, Instacart and Doordash.

Requirements

The initial question before joining one of the delivery apps is, “Do you have a mode of transportation and a smartphone?” If those two are covered, you can continue to look at requirements like age. UberEATS asks you to be over 19, and Instacart over 21. The most common accepted vehicles are bikes, scooters, and cars, but vans are also accepted in some cases, though they’re not the most practical option for delivering food. Make sure you have a valid driver’s license and insurance (if you don’t use a bike). Keep in mind that one of the conditions to start working as a delivery driver may be that you have at least 1 year of driving experience and some apps may ask for a background check. Last but not least, you’ll need to be fit enough to carry some weight, especially with Instacart, which involves grocery shopping for other people and possibly carrying heavy bags to their doors.

  1. Package delivery
    If you don’t want to deliver food, then you can opt to deliver envelopes, packages, online orders, products, large items, or anything that people need to receive in your city. You can be a courier or delivery person with Postmates, Streetstream, or Syft (for deliveries within the hospitality sector).

Requirements

As with food delivery app jobs, make sure you have a means of transport and a smartphone available. However, Streetstream also allows you to deliver on foot. Some apps will ask for a background check, proof of identity and address, as well as a clean driving record. Of course, if you’re delivering by car, motorbike or van/truck, you’ll need to have a valid driver’s license and insurance. Specifically, Syft will also give you an introductory session to discuss your skills and desired jobs in the app.

  1. Long distance deliveries and removals
    Is there such a thing as out-of-town delivery? Of course, there is an option for that. With Roadie, you can choose to deliver to your neighborhood, your city, your province or the entire country. It can be anything from a forgotten phone charger, a sofa or even a pet.

Requirements

To deliver with Roadie, make sure you are over 18, have a valid driver’s license and car insurance and choose the items that can fit in your vehicle. When accepting jobs, be sure you can handle the weight of the items.

Casting Delivery (Yes, it exists!)
People are so busy these days that even taking care of their laundry is something they would happily let someone else do for them. You can be that person! Work with Rinse in your city. Your tasks will be to pick up and deliver laundry from homes to Rinse’s cleaning partner locations.

Requirements

To be a Rinse Valet, you must be over 18 and have your own methods of transportation and a *smartphone. A valid driver’s license, an uneventful driving record and 2 years of driving experience are in the requirements. In addition, you must have a car that has 4 or more doors. Oh, and make sure you’re available to work between 7:15 PM and 10:45PM, as those are the hours you’ll be working exclusively with Rinse.
