  • Helmet

    For your safety, here is a good source from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) related to helmet safety and how to make sure your helmet is fitting properly.

  • Insulated delivery bag

    Insulated delivery bags are optional, but we’ve heard from other delivery people who deliver with the Uber Eats app that such bags help prevent odors and keep the food warm.

  • Reflectors or lights

    Reflectors or lights at the front and rear of your vehicle can help with visibility, according to the NHTSA.

  • Phone mount

    We’ve heard that a phone mount (legally required in some areas) can help you keep your hands on the handlebars and your eyes on the road.

  • Plastic bags

    Delivery people have told us that these handy lightweight helpers can help secure items and prevent spills.

  • Flashlight

    People who deliver at night report that it can be 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.
