    If you are like most of the Uber and Lyft drivers who used to make some decent money driving 6 to 8 hours a day and now struggles to make the same amount even when driving 10 to 12 hours a day, read-on cause this article will definitely help you.

    Uber and Lyft have been growing very fast in the last couple of years. While this is admirable and great as a business performance, it does come at the expense of the driver's own earnings. Passengers are obviously happy as they pay less and less for rides around town, but passengers alone are not enough to make this on-demand ridesharing business succeed. Unfortunately, companies like Uber and Lyft do not see it that way.

    It is with that concern of thousands of drivers in mind, seeing the increasing frustration of this independent workforce that tries to make a living through an honest and hardworking way that the founders of MobCar created a true on-demand package delivery service that drivers can mix-in with their current passenger rides. This is not the "package deliveries" that you end up getting with Sidecar or Deliv, which are mostly food deliveries, or shopping mall merchandises, at least that is the case in Seattle. MobCar has build strong partnerships with major courier and transportation companies to be able to deliver items to and from corporate customers.

    Currently offered in the Greater Seattle area and rapidly expanding to other major cities in US, MobCar helps drivers add $80 to $150 a day extra. That is a huge gain compared to only rideshare alone at the current rates and discounts taken on your paycheck. Drivers usually make in a 4 to 6 hours period what it would take 10 - 12 hours on Uber or Lyft. Needless to say, that also brings a cost advantage through less wear and tear on your vehicle, less millage and less gas spent. Don't get me wrong here, you'd still be better off if you use an gas efficient car, since you would be driving a lot.

    Another benefit of package delivering is that you don't have someone in the car to be forced to please, engaging in conversations and pretending all is good in life, while still being subjected to a low rating at the end, based on some non-sense reason, which could add up to bump you out of the platform temporarily or indefinitely in some cases.

    Now, if you want to maximize your earnings for the day, you'd figure out the off-peak hours for Uber and Lyft passengers and switch to package deliveries, as most of the deliveries happen during business hours anyway, and that is typically when Uber and Lyft are slow.

    Share you opinions, ideas and experiences about improving your driving efficiency and earning more !
