Car Buying Tips for Uber DriversIf you’re an Uber driver, you know how wonderful it is to live the entrepreneurial lifestyle—you get to set your own hours, meet people from around the world, and provide a needed service in your community. To do this, you’ve got to have a quality used car you can count on. Before you buy, consider these car buying tips for Uber drivers.

Number of Passengers

What’s the maximum number of people you’re comfortable driving? If you’re up for hosting larger parties, then consider an SUV. However, if you prefer rides with just 2-4 people then a smaller car such as a Toyota Corolla or Nissan Sentra will be perfect.

What Experience Do You Want to Provide?

We all have that amazing Uber story—that one where the driver had the best jokes, offered water and candy, and maybe even had a TV you could watch. You don’t have to go all out (at least at first), but consider what kind of experience you want to provide for your riders. What story do you want people to tell about the time they spend in your quality used car?

Remember that the greatest stories come when the smallest details are tended to.

What Can You Afford?

The only limits to your Uber driving experience are your imagination and your budget (if you want to go all out, Uber Black this is the cream of the crop of Uber rides, providing riders with a luxury, top-shelf experience).
