We know the holiday season can be stressful – especially this year, with more packages expected to be shipped than years past. The last thing you need to stress about is getting those gifts, on time, to family, friends and colleagues.
Whether it’s fresh baked cookies or a present for a gift exchange, by tapping the package icon in the app, Uber Connect can help you send gifts, goodies and holiday cheer across town to family and friends!
Don’t be a Grinch and run the risk of having your package delivered late. Uber Connect is a cost-effective, same-day local delivery alternative with real-time tracking, so you’ll always know when your package gets delivered. Today, we’re making it even easier to use Connect with expanded availability and new features including:
“Meet at door” pickup and dropoff option: When sending a package, you’ve previously only had the option to meet your driver curbside. Now, you can select to meet at door, providing a stress free door-to-door pickup and delivery experience.
Free form notes: You’ll also now have the option to enter delivery details or instructions, before sending a package, to provide drivers with additional information for a smooth package delivery (e.g. “These ornaments are fragile. Please handle with care!”).
Expanded availability: Connect is now available in 6,000+ US cities and towns, including New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego, where Connect was recently made available.
Originally launched in April 2020 to keep people connected while stay-at-home orders and social distancing was encouraged, we’re excited to make Uber Connect even better for small businesses and the people and cities we serve.
