The safety and security of all vehicles listed on Uber Carshare is fundamental. We remain committed to investing in vehicle security technology, resources and processes to reduce the likelihood of theft and enhance the experience for all owners and borrowers using our platform.
These are our tips for how you can help keep your car safe whilst listed on Uber Carshare.
Move your lockbox to your property
Where possible, attach your lockbox to your property instead of your car.
Park in a secure spot
If you usually park your car on the street outside your home or work, we recommend parking in the driveway or garage.
If it’s in a different area, then it’s a good idea to park in a well-lit area close to nearby CCTV.
Check your car regularly
If you can, check your car after each trip and between bookings to make sure:
- it’s parked in a secure spot
- the doors are locked
- the windows are up
If you’re using Instant Keys, check that the GPS device is connected and that the lockbox doesn’t have any damage.
Report suspicious behaviour
If you notice suspicious behaviour where your car is parked, report it to the local police so they can investigate.
