Thanks for the info bro,
The car is a 2009 Pontiac Vibe and it's fuel consumption is low with a very chilling AC.
The rental is 30k weekly.
Interested partners can reach me on 08069836540.
@mcadebola btw, are u an uber driver or partner?
| Business / Re: If You Are Uber Partner In Lagos, Please Share Your Experience Here by mcadebola: 2:32pm On Oct 03, 2018 |
What was their reply sir??
Lolzz, same with me. Yesterday was crazy. I even had to mail Uber so they won't run and block somebody. The funny part is that their will be drivers around the person but they will prefer somebody who's far.
They replied the message I sent them sha, the thing was annoying I knew it must be from their app.

Just like you cannot compare the Uber business in Lagos to Abuja, same way you cannot compare the threads.
But it can really get better if people start hopping on the thread though.
Time will tell............... We need every information available right now because the business is now for the strong and the informed
1. I am surprised at the Abuja uber drivers thread. What is really wrong? 7 pages of a topic for over a year!
2. Looking at the Lagos thread wit
h over 1,000 pages. One will begin to wonder if we have uber drivers in abuja.
3. Please come out and make this thread a lively one. Haba!

Chaiii........ That confidence
when you know your onions............. See groove na
My experience at an uber testing facility.
So I got this fresh vehicle for my personal movement, mileage 43,000miles, just had it serviced and checked for any present or future issues. It was Dull in the office so I decided to take vehicle to an uber testing facility nearby to have it checked so I can use vehicle at my free time on uber.
got there and there where 3cars waiting, I sat in my vehicle as I was moved around from time to time to create space for vehicles waiting.
when it was my turn the testing guy shouted, out come down nah!
I carry my file jeje came down and went to meet him, next was where your papers! I opened the file and asked him which paper he would require?
He said go inside go write your name first.
So I went into the lube bay, wrote my name on a small book with vehicle info and signed.
Next he said give me key!
I gave him, and he drove off like a bat out of he'll, I could here my baby redlining (manual transmission) as he left 2mins later he drove in like a danfo driver straight into the lube bay where I was sitting redlined my engine again and turned it off.
Next he went under the car and told one of the workers to bring a hexagonal 10mm spanner for him, he loosened a bolt on the gear box and came out with it saying, Oga as I de come, I de hear one noise from the gear, nah him I say make check the gear, see am no oil inside.
I smiled and told him it is a manual transmission, if he wants to gauge it properly he should drain the oil so we know how much oil was inside, but since there is no leak, I would not be topping the oil by 1 drop since vehicle is just 42,000 miles.
The guy now said e mean say you don fail the testing be dat, I said no problem, please couple my car so I can leave.
They coupled it and before I left I told him...... Today is the last day you will test a vehicle for uber.
As I was driving out, one of the staff ran after my vehicle and said Oga Oga wait wait please come back. I did my small shakara and he asked what the problem was, I told him what transpired and he said Oga no be so, please come back he will do it for you no problem.
The speed at which the test went this time was lightening speed.....
Took pictures, gave me the phone to write out my info and sign, then said Oga see o, I don pass you, I de submit am...
Before I got back to my workshop the report was already relaxing in my inbox.
End of story

Bro, the way you generalize is Alarming and Hilarious at the same time
First, All drivers are greedy............ Then secondly, All Nigerians are dishonest people
How is Yankee bro?? Please help me greet Donald Trump.
Have a nice week sir.
The model is to ensure the driver doesn't just park the car in his house and sleep all month waiting for a salary. You know Nigerians are dishonest people

To cut the long story short........ Drivers should take care of maintenance
Nothing stops partner from driving themselves though......... There is no rule book that says a partner must buy a car for driver to use if the venture doesnt look promising
But the implication of this post simply says........ Partner buys the car and puts it in good condition and thats it.... oh well.......
This is one very strange logic I found on this thread that I still don’t understand. And I find it equally surprising how many investors here have embraced it, whether grudgingly or otherwise. But the thing is, everyone has their own perspective or understanding of what works for them and it’s better for everyone to do whatever works for them. Now, in relation to your statement, let me just say share my own PERSONAL perspective and understanding that works for me:
An investor spends as much as 2.5m to buy a tokunbo car (let’s say a 2007 corolla) and put on the Uber platform. 2.5m includes money to
- pay for the tokunbo car
- pay to fix one or two things or issues that came with the car
- pay for general servicing (fluid changes like engine oil, transmission oil, coolants etc), parts changes like brake pads and/or lining, etc) in order to begin your own service history afresh because you don’t have the service history record of the last user abroad and since it’s for commercial use it’s better to do a comprehensive service before starting
- pay for comprehensive insurance
- pay for tracker
- pay for vehicle registration
- pay for Uber and Taxify registration
- pay for the logistics involved and other miscellaneous

We will change this Narrative very soon boss
We are our own enemies, as long as we refuse to unite under one umbrella we cannot have one voice, we cannot have any voice at all sef and drivers will continue to be handled with little regard.

Please i would like to know if anyone is aware of Uber or Taxify investigating the Driver that was abducted last week. The whole news was everywhere last week but thats all we have seen so far about it. We all have moved on and praying that God continues to keep us, I feel some questions need to be asked.
I think the plate number of the drivers car was also in circulation and i am sure either Taxify or Uber reps must have seen and read the news......... Have they checked this driver details on their platform and checked the last ride he accepted?? Have they checked if this ride was completed or not?? Have they launched an investigation to see if they can track down the criminals??
If this crime was committed by a supposed rider that used the app to request and Neither Uber nor Taxify could use the riders details to track them down............ Maybe its time for them to improve on their KYC process (at least i know they can track anybody with BVN).......... We cant keep hustling for daily bread and having ghost riders perpetrating evil and making the business a trap for the devil.
It might be time for us to have a Responsive and Proactive Partners/Drivers committee that sees to all these things and that can demand answers using appropriate approach............. There is no E-hailing without the drivers and the least we could ask for is for some level of assurance that we are safe.
If this happened to a Rider, i am sure the world wont be this quiet

Given that its possible to make 20k+ on some days too, remember?? There are bright days and there are dull days............ Even if on normal rental, doesnt mean a driver will meet daily targets but rental amount must still complete.
I think this is a welcomed plan sha........ Personally, i feel a driver that doesn't default in rentals can do this............. Has to be a driver with hardworking attitude and a driver that knows how to prepare for rainy days.
At the bolded, out of which drivers gets a 19k per week salary, invariably driver has remitted 30k per week. Except unless there is a clause in their agreement that restricts the car usage and hours of running.but I want to doubt it.
Drivers can make 12-15k daily true, but Wat of his daily expenses : fuel ,data, calls, tolls. All this small small things ehn.
Let's do I quick run. I for example this week. Let's say I have been lucky with taxify (and I know it). Have hit 50k in 3 days (Monday-wednesday), but after commission it comes to 42500, I did a quick check on my expenses and I have spent 17k roughly(fuel, toll, data, etc.). Left with 25,500. Remove 15k for 3 days remittance left with 10500. But my body know how e deh do am, that I cannot keep up.
The 7k per day remittance will help drivers to inevitably have saved up sum in form of salary by months end. That's the only plus I see. The possibility of driver being at advantage is if requests flow and he make a constant 15k+ daily week in week out.
this is the blind spot

Sad one, Really sad............. But what happened that is not contained in this short piece?? Probably the rider reported to him and he felt it wasnt acceptable
How can you a driver rate your follow driver poorly...
You requested a ride for your client cause you on trip or for whatsoever reason. Thou you didn't experience the trip yourself. But the only thing that came to your mind is to rate the driver poorly.
I have nothing to say to you.

Thanks for this prayer. God is indeed blessing the work of my hands.
I now partially own a Toyota Camry 2005
Picked a rider from Ikeja GRA to Surulere.
I commented on how I thought he was a female from his soft voice over the phone. We got talking: e hailing, business etc. He saw a Toyota corolla 2000 model on the other lane and started gushing about how he loves that car. He intends selling one of his cars to get that. How it is portable and very economical and fits into his daily waka. I quickly chipped in 'what car do you intend selling'? Big daddy, he replied. I am interested
To cut the story short, the car is parked in my house now. My car.
There are angels moving around to bless you. Try to recognize them when you meet them.
The man is a barrister. I still owe him 100k and he has given me up to September to pay him at my convenience. Gotten on a platter of gold

Ok I understand your point... but u said your highest salary earner earns something like 60k a month ..what can that do for a person.. Uber is a tough business no doubt ...but most uber driver will make that 60k your highest earner makes in a week, if the uber owns the car easily... but if he does not own the car, am sure very sure he will take home more than 60k a month..
My experience with uber business, personal experience is that a lot of the drivers are greedy, not all of them ..and also managing coy or manager themselves are greedy or very conning ,from personal experience.. Now the smart drivers that were patient enough and experience enough ,were able to save enough money, saw a good deal and bought themselves a good car ..trust me from experience, u can see a good deal or lucky deal in terms of buying a good car ..I even offered to help person buy a car 04 civic landing cost for 1m tokunbo.. So at the end of it all , " in the mist of chaous, there is always an opportunity". It is up to you to make the most of that opportunity... all from personal experience... there is no need for me to explain how I gave a person great opportunity and the person blew... no need to go into details .. My point is that a lot of uber drivers can easily make more than your highest earner.. And aslo those
slaves ,sorry I meant labourers working for you in the hot sun.. What is their goal in the nxt five years? Do they want to continue making bread for you for ever ? Or do they want to be carrying your pure water up and down for the nxt five years ? Uber drivers also do have the opportunity to network on their job o ...I am not too sure about your bread seller or pure water seller...
Apparently, he doesnt have a problem with his highest earner collecting 60k monthly............ You might be surprised that its possible he has never advised any of his workers that that they can do better or become better rather than sitting with a 60k job.................. But he sure has a problem with a partner making 35k weekly while still having all the time to pursue more productive ventures.
Its an interesting world we live in though
| Business / Re: If You Are Uber Partner In Lagos, Please Share Your Experience Here by mcadebola: 10:17am On Aug 01, 2018 |
Who are the OUR? if I'm doing a business and I can't recover my capital in 6months or a year, then it doesn't worth it. You just want to impress people here you are bereft of biz ideas. If I'm selling 800pieces (trying to push it to 1000pieces before December) of slice bread per week at N240 each...make your calculation. I have 5 staffs, the highest earn 60k per month, 3 earn 35k and 2 earn 30k per month. I run my gen 4 to 5hours per day. Pls do your calculation.
With your 2million, travel to Ondo state, buy 35logs at 50k per log. Transport it to shagamu with 150k, load it in a container, forwarding fee is 1,100,000. A container is sold at $12,000.
Buy palm oil from ondo, and sell in that big market close to ketu. There are women that buy 500 25litres keg every 2weeks.
There's a way guys construct "coldroom" now, let them construct for you. It is better than an irregular 35k with repairs per week....
Your oil sales biz and your car repair workshop is giving you the cashflow you need as a man/husband/father. What can 35k even do in a week?? Is that what you guys call a cash flow?? You are not just informed!
Gazzuzz , let your wife sell pet drinks in whole sale. 2m will give her lots of bigcola products (that's the new drink for the masses), then she can add cocacola n Pepsi products...
Look around you, Haruna is densely populated. What's giving Nigeria relevance in the market place today is her population.
Lovely ideas sir, but i also feel you need to learn how to make your points without adding a bit of insults to it. Once you start with the insults, you have lost most people reading and whatever follows counts for a little.
Like it has been said earlier, every business with its ups and downs and each Aboki to his kettle. You will be surprised to find out what many people on here do apart from Uber and how well they do at it.
From your points above, you have not said Uber is not profitable but you just feel the break-even wait time is too long for your own preferred investment which is understandable.
If everybody here pulls out of Uber and joins your bakery business or everybody moves to palm oil business, what becomes of such business.
I dont know how much you make daily or weekly that you call cashflow and that makes you say 35k weekly is nothing............ But whatever you make, I am sure Dangote sees that your cashflow as nothing..... But i doubt he will come out in the Open and say you are bereft of ideas or try to rubbish your hustle.
No man is an island of knowledge, but even while trying to pass knowledge to people "who don't know as much as you do"......... Still try to be humble at it. One man's best clothe is another mans rags.
