For delivery partners on 2 wheels
We encourage the use of a certified helmet to help protect you on the road.
Insulated delivery bag
A sturdy bag not only cushions and insulates food while you're on the road, but it also helps prevent spills, keeping you and your vehicle clean.
Reflectors and lights
Reflectors and lights should be on the front and rear of your vehicle, so that you're visible to others.
At night your cycle must have white front and red rear lights lit. It must also be fitted with a red rear reflector (and amber pedal reflectors, if manufactured after 1/10/85).
Phones must only be used in a hands-free manner while driving. A phone mount promotes safe driving habits by letting you keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.
Portable phone charger
A charged phone helps keep your app up and running.
A waterproof jacket and non-slip gloves can help you in case of rain and unpredictable weather.
Plastic bags and rubber bands
Secure items and prevent spills with these handy lightweight helpers.
Partners who deliver at night report that it’s useful to carry a flashlight to find house numbers and illuminate walkways.
Restaurant guidelines for delivery
Restaurants may outline certain delivery guidelines that promote food safety, adhere to regulatory guidance, or accommodate customer dietary restrictions, and they expect you to follow them—for example, restaurant notices to keep halal and non-halal food separate.
