I think UBEREats in my area is running low on bags. I know, for me, I received an insulated bag within a week after I signed up. However, one of the people that I referred didn’t receive one so she ended up buying it at Target. Another individual who just signed up decided to buy his at Trader Joe’s. I know for me, I didn’t know if an insulated bag would come, so I ended up purchasing one at Fred Meyer, but it was fairly small, so I was glad when UBEREats sent over an insulated bag for me to use.
To give you an idea of cost, my small Fred Meyer bag was under $2 and for the one that was a bigger size from Trader Joes’s was about $7.
I have found that it has been helpful to have two insulated bags though, because there are times that multiple orders come in at the same time. It is best to have all the food insulated as much as possible so that when the food arrives at the customer’s home, that it is still warm or cold, whatever the case may be.
For me, I get nervous with drinks. I never want them to spill or if the distance to where I am delivering the drink is far and it’s a milkshake, I get nervous that it’ll be melted and the quality won’t be as great. I’m still trying to think of ways to make sure that milkshakes arrive to customer’s homes in great condition. I might look into purchasing something in Amazon for it, if there is anything that does exist for it.
