“I can rent an electric bike, study, enjoy Sydney and pay my bills”
Richard is the first customer to rent our brand new custom designed electric bike’s for delivery at Gospringo.
Where are you from?
“I am Brazilian, 23 years old and I was born born and raised in São Paulo. I graduated in Social Communication two years ago. Last December I moved to Sydney to study English. I am continuing my studies of Leadership and Management at Greenwich College and I’ve extended his visa for another two years.”
Why did you decide to become an Uber Eats Driver?
“I decided to work as a courier at the beginning of the pandemic. I’m living Bondi Junction but I wanted a job that could offer me freedom in terms of working hours. As a Uber Eats delivery rider I am my own boss. I now rent an electric bike and it allows me to work straight away.”
How often do you work?
“At the start, I was working only at night. Nowadays I’m works five days a week. The peak time’s are during lunch and dinner time on weekdays and some weekends. The more I work , the most money I make. I am making around $27 per hour on weekdays and $30 on weekends”
Why did you choose Gospringo?
“Before the new e-bikes from Gospringo, I was renting from another company. Whenever it rained, I had to cover the battery with plastic to avoid sudden pauses. This was really dangerous when I was riding on the street. I frequently returned home to charge my phone during the day as my old e-bike did not have a USB charger.”
What do you like about Gospringo?
“My favourite thing about the e-bike is the battery lasts much longer. I ride without worrying anymore. I now have the peace of mind and confidence to work without any interruptions. The free maintenance is also a great offering. I know that I won’t be spending extra money to maintain the bike.”
Richard has been working for Uber Eats and has completed 2,400 trips in Sydney. What he enjoys the most is when deliveries are ordered to someone else and he brings the non-expected but always pleasant food package. Yummm! 🙂
