To begin delivering throughout the New York area, drivers need a license, a smartphone that can download the latest iterations of the preferred delivery apps, and access to a car.

Car Rental Makes It Easy

Here’s a list of Digi TLC Rentals & Leases required documents:

● Driver’s License (out-of-state drivers may require additional documents)

● $20 non-refundable charge for the MVR (Motor Vehicle Record) Drivers Abstract.

● Proof of Address (Utility Bill, Bank Statement, Credit Card Bill, etc.).

● Copy of a Debit/Credit Card or a Direct Deposit Letter which includes your name, account number & routing number.

The best strategy, however, is to sign up for more than two third-party delivery apps, even if you’re planning to concentrate on delivering within certain neighborhoods. (Most customers use more than one delivery app, so why not you?) This will better your chances of picking up multiple items at each restaurant you visit. And you’ll be able to group your pickups and deliveries with more strategy and efficiency.
