Unlike other Christmas periods which are usually free of traffic in Lagos, I hear this one has been quite the opposite, with gridlocks almost everywhere you turn. Uber is taking advantage of the traffic and have partnered with Hampers2Go to offer a Hamper delivery service which they are calling UberHamper to their customers in Lagos.
To use the service, you will need to be running the newest version of the app, select “ChristmasHamper” from the selector at the bottom. Enter the address of where you would like the hamper delivered in the Set Pickup Location box. A Hampers2go car will deliver 1 hamper in minutes if a car is available.
On availability of cars, Uber says “we are expecting demand to be high on both days. If you do not see a car available, please try again in a few minutes.”
The cost of the hamper and service (N25,000) will be deducted from your account, just like a regular ride is billed.
Uber says the hampers will include:
1 Oppson Power Bank Car Charger
1 Set of Wine Glasses
1 Electric Wine opener
1 Bottle Bubbling Champagne
1 Bottle Red Wine
1 Bottle White Wine
1 Beauty Revolution Makeup Sample
1 Jay Osbie N1000 discount voucher
