How to choose the right vehicle to increase your earnings

Which vehicle is the optimal for you?

One of the first choices you have to make as a Wolt Courier Partner is to decide which vehicle you want to deliver with. Mostly, people choose the vehicle that is easily available to them from the start, but it might make sense to reconsider your choice, if you want to increase your earnings.  

Depending on how many hours you are online on the Wolt platform and how often you decide to go online your ideal vehicle may vary. Below, each section delves into when it makes sense to be either riding a bike, an e-bike, or a car. 👇 

If you are currently delivering by bike:

Although a regular bike is the cheapest and healthiest vehicle to deliver with, it can be challenging to work as many hours as you aim for due to the physical work you have to put in. 

A good way to increase your hours, efficiency, and your earnings, is to get an electric bike or scooter that takes much of the physical strain off from you when delivering. With more energy to spare, you can deliver faster and increase the amount of  hours you stay online. As such, you can expect your earnings to go up and potentially the cost of acquiring your new vehicle within a reasonable time-period. 

If you are currently delivering by scooter or e-bike:

The speed and versatility of scooters and e-bikes is great and you are already delivering with some of the most efficient vehicles there are as a Wolt Partner! However,  when the rain starts falling and the long distance orders come in, having a car could make your day much easier. The comfort of the car lets you increase your online hours and can reduce the time spent getting from restaurant to customer. This can increase your earnings even more! If you already have access to a car, you can consider use this to deliver during  rainy days!

If you are currently delivering by car:

A car is comfortable to get around town in, but if the weather is good and the parking spaces are hard to find, it might be good to try an e-bike or scooter. On smaller vehicles, you can always park right next to the place you are going, and you’ll get more of fresh air and exercise. When comparing vehicle types, you also have to consider your expenses related to your car such as fuel, insurances and repairs, which might make it worth while for you to test a scooter or an e-bike instead. 

Do your own calculations before switching

Every Courier Partner’s situation is different, so we recommend that you always do your own calculations before making a decision to change vehicle type. 

How many hours a week do you deliver? How much extra do you expect to earn every hour with a new vehicle type? What are your expenses/financial gains related to acquiring and running the new vehicle? 

If a change appears to result in better earnings for you and you want to try out a new vehicle type, you can simply write our Support Team and they will help you change your vehicle in the app right away! 

Remember to ride and drive safely!

Although being fast and efficient is good for earnings optimization, the most important thing is to still travel safely. Read more about how to do that by clicking the button below!

      Your logic
