Harry here. There aren’t a whole lot of nationally available rideshare options outside of Uber and Lyft these days, but fortunately for drivers, there are a number of growing delivery companies. In the past, I’ve covered what it was like to sign up with DoorDash but today, we’ve got an article from new RSG contributor Dash Bridges (not his real name) about how to really maximize your earnings while delivering for DoorDash.
Hey Rideshare Guy readers, Harry graciously stepped aside for a bit and allowed me to share my experiences from the delivery side of things. Over the past year, I’ve logged 900+ deliveries over nearly 500 hours driving for DoorDash. Along the way, I’ve picked up quite a few tricks of the trade. My goal is to share my experiences and help you maximize your earnings while working delivery. So with that in mind, welcome to Dashville!
Here’s my background: DoorDash is my side gig. I’m an operations manager for a networking hardware manufacturer here in Silicon Valley. I’m sure that job sounds exceptionally glamorous and lucrative, but I can assure you it’s not. DO YOU KNOW WHAT HOUSING COSTS ARE HERE IN THE SF BAY AREA??!? Exactly. So, needing additional income, I signed up for DoorDash through a Craigslist ad. These days, I spend a couple of weeknights and Sunday evenings making deliveries for extra cash. Although I sincerely enjoy dashing and its change of pace from my day job, make no mistake, I am here to MAKE MONEY. When I dash, I’m serious about it. I’ve got 3-4 hours to hustle. Get in. Make money. Get out. Go home!
