Uber is everywhere nowadays, and many people are beginning to realize the benefits of becoming an Uber driver. While it may be late hours, it is a great way to earn some extra money on the side, all while staying in the comfort of your own vehicle. With that being said, being an Uber driver isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. There is a responsibility with that job, and as the driver, your car must be in pristine condition for your customers. Luckily, we have decided to give current or potential Uber drivers a list of five essentials they should all have in their vehicle at all times. Check out the list below:
1.) Cell Phone Mount
No one wants to be in the car with a careless driver. Since Uber drivers need to constantly look at their phone to see where their destination is, it wouldn’t be safe to continuously be looking down at your lap. By having a cellphone mount on the dashboard, drivers can keep their eyes on the road while glancing at the GPS, keeping everybody safe and secure.
2.) USB Charger
While a car is needed to succeed as an Uber driver, so is a working cell phone. If a driver doesn’t have a cell phone, how could their customers contact them, and vice versa? With that being said, it is extremely important to carry a USB charger so that all electronic devices never lose their charge. Passengers will also appreciate this accommodation, as we all know a dying phone is almost the end of the world.
3.) Vomit Bags
As disgusting as this may sound, it is an essential. Uber is used by many people, from morning commuters to late night bar hoppers, and drivers can never be too prepared. By having vomit bags ready, motorists will be able to protect their seats from the passengers who have had a rough night and get a little woozy on the way home.
4.) AUX Cord
This is an essential, as everybody loves to get the party started with some tunes. By giving passengers the ability to put on their favorite type of music, not only will the clientele be happy, but they’ll also give the driver a great review. It is all about giving the passengers what they want and making their day or night in any way possible.
5.) All Season Floor Mats
Uber drivers are always there for you. Rain or shine, there is an Uber driver in the vicinity who will come pick you up when needed. With that being said, it is important for drivers to protect their car with all season floor mats. No matter what the weather may be, the bottoms of shoes are always dirty, so by having floor mats that are easy to clean off, drivers will be able to keep their car clean all year round.
