    I'd estimate about £200-300 a month net profit (based on 2 8-hour shifts, including travelling to and from Hemel Hempstead) - and that's assuming you already have a suitable car.

    If you have to rent one, you'll be losing money.
     
  3. A relative of mines work fri and sat and he says he is making around £500 net per week on 12 hrs shift.

    Is that even possible or he is just talking Bullsh**

    If you're lucky, then it's possible - but by no means guaranteed - to take £500 doing 12 hours each night over Friday and Saturday, but there's a very big difference between gross takings, net takings, and actual profit.

    I respectfully suggest your relative perhaps doesn't fully appreciate the differences...

    Based on those figures, I reckon he's really clearing £240-280 a week (depending on his insurance costs) - but *before* car rental/financing/depreciation/maintenance costs.
    And of course, before tax - if that's an issue...

    Possible, if you do 12 hours on each shift - PLUS the time spent travelling to and from Hemel.

    But you say you have another job; When will you sleep? How long before you 'burn out'?

    Also, take an evening off for any reason, and you'll be looking at clearing nearer £100 for the other two evenings' efforts...
     
  10. You are right but i guess nothing wrong giving it a go to earn something on the side.If things dont work out i am not left stranded in the middle of a deadend.

    Mate, if you don't have already a ph car and license don't bother at all with uber, there is no point doing it, the guys already said, you will make a lost instead of a profit. If you like driving and need extra cash part time try a restaurant deliveries or escort agency, if you lucky you may end up earning more and obviously paying less for car and insurance and license. Try google if you can find there was a new company starting in your areas looking for delivery men with own car, they do deliveries from McDonald's and kfc and the rest of the big chains, promise £12-15 an hour but even if you can achieve around £10 is still better option then uber. Uber is a modern slavery and no freedom there at all. It's worse then a sweat shop, and apples factory in Shenzhen. Don't listen to all people that says big money-easy work, this is a myth. No point even to rent a car to give a try too.
    Good luck
     
  13. Don't forget your tax. I swear next year so many Uber drivers are going to have to sell their cars to pay a hefty tax bill.
     
  14. If you will work only monday, thursday and friday you will make: monday(100) , thursday(120) friday(160)======> total= 380 gbp and now deduct 80 gbp diesel + 70 gbp insurance + 30 gbp ( surprise costs (sanwidch ,water, cofee) ) you will remain with 200 gbp your profit . but remember that you need to work 11-12 hours / day .. and you must respect this program by the end. for example if you miss 1 day ..your profit will be minimum or equal with 0. And 1 more thing: you must buy the cheapest car that Uber accept. and if possible to fill up your diesel tank 50% cooking oil + 50% normal diesel

    and do not run after the surge price. you will lose time. after you get more experience you can do that.

  15. if hi works only 3 days / week probably will not reach the amount of 10k at the end of the year. so it will be no tax to pay. but depends what other job hi have and how is hi paid.
     
  16. Actually i am paid directly to bank and yes tax are deducted for my main job.so i am not bothered too much about paying tax for pco.Lets see if i can hit that 10k mark by the end of the year.

    I'm pretty sure you have to pay tax if your combined income from your all jobs (inc uber) is over 10k. It's not like you get 10k tax free in every job. It's the first job where you get 10k tax free.

    Let's say if you're employed and you got more than jobs (both employment) then you pay normal tax on first one and 20% (or emergency tax as they call it) on other ones.
