Why UberBLACK Is Called The High-End Service


UberBLACK service is classified as the high-end Uber service. This may be confusing because most Uber services are classy as well and Uber drivers give great service no matter the type of service they provide. So, how really ‘high’ is the UberBLACK service? Let’s explore this concept.


UberBLACK (1)

  1.   UberBLACK Cars Are More Expensive

Unlike other Uber services, this service demands classy and expensive cars. The service also handpicks latest models with black exterior and black grey or beige leather interior. 


  1.   Pricing

This service is considered to be one of the most expensive car service that Uber provides. Since you wish to get around in classy sedans, you must be ready to pay a higher price for the extra comfort. The best money for the best services – this equation is apt for this situation


  1.   It Isn’t a Common Service

UberBLACK isn’t the most patronised type of service. Since it is a high class service and as such, only used regularly by a number of people. People usually opt for the inexpensive UberX for regular rides. They consider the UberBLACK service as the best choice when they have special occasions or events that require display of class.


  1.   Drivers Are Professionally Trained

Most drivers who drive for this service have professional chauffeuring experience and also undergo training from Uber before they are allowed to drive. Anyone would expect that a driver who has undergone professional training would understand how to relate with passengers more than the regular driver.


  1.   Passengers Get First Class Treatment

Owing to the training discussed above, the drivers tend to give the passengers a more professional and classier treatment. This may include opening the door, the trunk, to mention a few. The service provides riders with absolute convenience and allows them feel the luxury that they paid very well for.


  1.   Livery Licenses

This license gives the service a strong point when weighed against other available Uber services. UberBLACK drivers never have to worry about airport pickups or drops since livery licenses give them the liberty to carry out such pickups.


  1.   Commercial Registration

While other Uber services have drivers who are just private individuals willing to share their cars to earn money, UberBLACK service requires that drivers register their business and submit registration documents before they can be allowed to join the service. UberBLACK (2)The rules for this service are very strict and this ensures that the service is taken seriously to protect its riders.


  1.   Drivers Earn More

Since UberBLACK fares are higher than others, you can expect that the drivers would get to earn more than the drivers under other Uber services. UberBLACK drivers make more per ride so they end up working lesser than other Uber services but make the same amount of money or sometimes more. Take a look at this simple calculation – an UberX driver earns $10 per ride and an UberBLACK driver gets $20, an UberX driver would have to carry out 10 rides to get the $100 dollars that an UberBLACK driver would make on 5 rides. This allows UberBLACK drivers work less for same or more money than theUberX driver.


From our discussions above, it is obvious that UberBLACK service is indeed a high end service. Tell us your views and any experiences you have had with the UberBLACK service in the comment box.

UberBLACK Drivers and UberX Requests


Uber has a wide range of services created to suit the different lifestyles of its customers. These services include but are not limited to the UberBLACK and UberX. While the UberBLACK service is Uber’s high class service that provides riders with very sleek rides driven by professional chauffeurs, UberX is the low-cost Uber service where riders are picked up in nice vehicles but not as nice as the black cars.

Another significant difference between these two services is the fares charged for using either of them. UberX drivers make a handsome sum of money at the end of the day since the service is Uber’s most widely used service and gets a bulk of Uber rides. However, UberBLACK drivers do not get as much ride requests like the UberX but the fares charged are high enough that they earn as much as UberX drivers and sometimes more.  uberBLACK

It is reasonable that UberX drivers (the low cost Uber) receive more ride requests than UberBLACK drivers. Hence, UberX drivers generally have busier days than most UberBLACK drivers. For this reason, Uber gives UberBLACK drivers a chance to accept UberX rides. An initial reaction would be to reject the idea but we can’t ignore the merits of this initiative.

The question now is – When should you accept an UberX ride as an UberBLACK driver?

Here are a few logical answers below:


  1.   On Slow Days

Sometimes, you have days when things are not exactly smooth – every job has that kind of day. It is advisable that UberBLACK drivers who get a beep for X rides on such days accept the ride. It is a good way to ensure that you still keep your income healthy for the day.


  1.   After All Said and Done

Even after having a rewarding day, it never hurts to earn more provided you still have time to kill. If you receive UberX pings, why not accept it? You can add that as a tip for you – something to help end the day on a high note.


  1.   A Ride Back From the Airport

Now this may be rare but imagine you drop off a passenger at an airport (which is usually a long trip from the city) and you get an UberX ride alert. Not all drivers who take a ride to the airport are lucky enough to get another ride request when heading back. So if you get any at all, UberX or not, you should really consider accepting it. 

Generally, the question about whether UberBLACK drivers should accept UberX rides or not is really just about timing. Depending on the situation you are in, UberX request might be a plus or minus. I would definitely advise that UberBLACK drivers do not consider taking X rides during the peak periods for receiving UberBLACK requests. Accepting an UberX request is only necessary when you are sure that there is really nothing to lose. It could be a big loss if you spend time chasing less profitable rides during UberBLACK peak periods. Take advantage of this initiative by Uber and maximize the potentials attached to signing up for other Uber services.

  1.   Contact Your Applicants with A Date for a Soft Interview

It is in your best interest to interview people to consider if they are good enough to place your vehicle in their hands. Do not leave this solely to Uber. However, this shouldn’t be a shirt and tie kind of interview – it’s just a soft examination to gauge their personality. An UberBLACK driver’s personality is what accounts for how good a driver’s service turns out. In a business space where customer service is very important, it is necessary to take your time and pay very close attention to their actions and reactions during this meeting/interview. After you have done this for all applicants, you should go on to short-list your favorites.


  1.   Conduct a Background Check

It is assumed that while they register, these applicants must have forwarded some documents to confirm their identity. You’d have to take these documents and run background checks on them.  There are rules in different places guiding how far you can dig about a person. Within the scope of the law, see what you can find on their criminal and driving record.


  1.   Re-invite Successful Candidates for Driving Test

After conducting your checks and short-listing your top candidates, you can then contact the successful drivers. Most likely, you should give them different dates. This second meeting is going to involve you getting them behind the wheel. UberBLACKHand over the car keys and pay attention to what they do and how they do it. From here you can go on to select the people you find most suitable based on their driving skills.


  1.   Give Them a Briefing

UberBLACK service orientation should be given to drivers. They need to understand your vision and the way you intend to run your business. Then you also discuss payment information and how it accrues.

These steps would help ensure that the hands you have on deck are the best ones thereby securing your peace of mind. With the above applied steps, you are sure that whatever Uber would be doing is just a crosscheck.
