I stay around LASU. Going home is always a stone in d neck so I decided to get a small apartment at Ifako-gbagada. Gbagada is so central. I won’t be staying there every day cos I already have a house of my own & family. So i need a cool headed room mate which we can share d rent/bills. Contact me if interested. 08034895737

Before going into uber, you need to consider the fuel consumption of your car amongst other stuffs.
Your Honda Accord would bite you hard on short trips no matter how gentle you're on the gas pedal.

With that budget you can go for a Honda Civic which has a smaller engine and good for city driving, or similar car with a 1.8 and below engine capacity.

Thanks and God bless. I will look into the Honda civic. What is discouraging me is I will love to also go into the offline pickups and hotel services and I feel customers may not like civic cuz of its size.

Thanks

I will suggest you go for Toyota Camry if you really want to go for a car in the class you want, but you need to increase your budget a bit.

Honda Accord in my own view can't stand the punishment that a Camry can handle.

The gear and leg pulling would be your major problem for an Accord with that budget.

Upgrade your budget to ₦800,000 - ₦950,000 for a reasonable good one.

Someone said the envelope light can be used for uber, but don't know how true it is.

Those 10 partners do not speak for all the partners on uber/bolt .. The only regret I have is hiring a crazy, bleaching, stealing manager.. But it is part of the learning curve, when you are new in a business, people will take advantage of you..
Let the young man enjoy doing what he is doing.. Uber is for young guys out there ... I support him and at least he is not robbing people out there... now if uber is slavery what do think about those people hawking stuff on the hot sun everyday, how much do you think those guys are making... am sure guys like that if given the chance to do uber.. They will jump at it with no problem ... I will rather be doing uber than hawking stuff under the hot .. Let the young man do him...

With all due respect my oga, I am not holding him, I don't even believe he is not an imposter, so I spit out my mind from a direct and general view, waiting for his response. 10 partners obviously do not speak for all, but I don't like luck, I prefer figures so I don't involve in uncalculated risk, for me a bird in hand is far worth going for an unforseen circumstances, like you will never appreciate that 1 naira in your hand until you lost it in search of 3 naira.

On hawking: I know or a pepper seller, that have been able to send her children to university and build a house using profit from what she sells, same goes for a charcoal seller. What I'm about to type is wrong to me, but let me drive my point and burst ur bubble... There is a man that hawk plantain ard first gate on lateef jakande road, when I learnt he built his house doing that, I took a second look at him, so life is relative, do yours and let other people be. Imagine what's life for someone that felt he have arrived with a daily target of 3k including his expenses, I'm not saying there is no room for improvement, but a wise soul coming from where he claimed will have some level of apprehensiveness in them and not total anticipation.

Well let it be sha ... the young man reminds me of my younger days.. I was very business minded, made mistakes along the way ,and I learn from them.. So it is ok for him now , it is a start.. I will tell you for sure that he is a lot smarter than most drivers that work for me in past .. I think he would have use the opportunity very well that those drivers started with me didnt use.. And I also ask the young man to contact me but he didn't. At least he could have made an effort to contact me ,which is fine and too late ..those are the type of mistakes he will make and learn from ....never turn down a business offer until you hear the person talk.. And always keep business relationship open ..coz you will never know 2morrow ...have learn that the Nigerian business culture is backwards at times.
So basically let the young man roam ...if he is smart enough, he will learn and adapt..

The last guy like you boasts of netting 120k weekly consistently for 6 months & he disappeared the same month. This happened February this year o & less than 3 months, fare has been reduced. You're here ranting about netting 3k daily & feeling high.
It is understandable that 3k under A/c compared to your previous job is heaven on earth for you but body go tell you later on that driving long hours for such amount daily will ruin your health. It is probably less than a year you started driving, I have been driving since 2008! & many others here have driven longer years yet you think they are lazy & should leave young energetic former bricklayer on the job.
Listen kid, hustle while you can but be smart enough to consider the future. Back in 2016/17 drivers takes 1/2 days off a week to rest and flex their hustle money, I bet you can sleep 8hrs straight now without driving in your dreams.
Come 2/3 months, another pure water seller will flood the thread again & be happy to be making 1500 daily under a/c. Be wise kid

Yes, we all are here to share experience, and I sharemy own experience.

How come all of you insisting my experience is incorrect. Posting my earnings is illegal.

You all claim to earn more than me, and when I say earning 20k net weekly, you claim is nothing.

From my 20k net, I have been able to save more than 300k in 4 months and you keep telling me is nothing.

Well for me is something, I appreciate the opportunity and I'm very grateful
You need to stop running your mouth and learn from your elders. This is a post from one of the people you called lazy

600k Camry go pepper your eye oo..
I would advice you just find a favourable Hp agreement with what you have and you should be fine if you like driving and also know how to drive..
Remember that knowing how to move a car does not mean one knows how to drive..
Also do not make decisions out of desperation its never easy
