The driver can always decline this request.

    • If your package hasn't been delivered yet, you can call or message the driver in the app.
    • Drivers are free to cancel your request for any reason, including, for example, if your package was too heavy, too large for their vehicle, not packaged securely, or contained a prohibited item.
    • If the person receiving the package wasn't available, the driver may try to contact you in the app to resolve the issue or coordinate a return. You'll be responsible for costs associated with returning the package to you if necessary.
    • For help coordinating a delivery in case of terminated trips or canceled requests, if you haven’t yet received your package, or if the package was damaged during delivery, contact Uber Support.
