Uber Flash: This Tuesday (5) Uber launched the shipping service Uber Flash Moto items in the cities of São Paulo, São Bernardo do Campo, Santo André, São Caetano do Sul, Diadema, Guarulhos, Osasco and Santos. The service is already present in 18 locations in Brazil, such as Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Belo Horizonte (MG) and Goiânia (GO), but has reached a further 22 today.
Launched in Brazil in March this year, Uber Flash Moto’s main goals are to support social distancing, serve users who want to quickly ship small items, and provide Uber Eats deliverers with an additional earning option. Motorcycle trips are cheaper than Uber Flash deliveries in cars.
Designed for pandemic times, the modality limits physical contact and recommends using the app’s chat to chat and guide the delivery person. When the user requests the service, both he and the recipient can track the travel information and the route map, which is updated in real time.
How do you use Uber Flash Moto?
Using Uber Flash Moto is like requesting an UberX trip. But instead of selecting the “Travel” option, choose the option to send or receive an item. According to Uber, the most shipped items so far are gifts, flowers, food, documents, clothing and keys.
Then just follow the steps below:
Open the Uber app and tap the package icon (“Delivery”);
Check that your item is properly packaged and within the weight and size limits;
Select the option “Send” or “Receive” and add the name and phone number of the recipient or sender;
Enter the pick-up and delivery address of the item;
Click on “Choose Flash Moto” and confirm the address;
look at the Uber Flash Moto Rules and confirm if you agree;
When the partner delivery person arrives, the item must be delivered to him on the sidewalk.
