How to File a Complaint against Uber Eats Customer Support
Still no help? Don't fret. You can escalate the issue to third parties like BBB, FTC, or your state attorney general or consumer agency. Uber Eats is known for sneaky pricing and a lack of response to customer complaints.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB)
BBB might not have any legal authority, but it handles complaints filed by customers against Uber Eats. File your complaint through the BBB website or submit a written complaint letter to your BBB (find yours in this directory). Be sure to include your name and contact details when submitting your letter. Uber, the parent company, handles every BBB-related consumer complaint.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
The FTC promotes consumer protection. You can file an Uber Eats complaint with FTC by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or online through their Complaint Assistant to have them intervene on the issue on your behalf.
State Attorney General or State Consumer Agency
You can also bring your Uber Eats complaints to your local government or consumer organization. Check out USA.GOV list of consumer protection offices across all states. But it's important to call first to confirm whether the offices handle your type of complaints and provide complaint forms.
Take UberEats to Small Claims Court if your issue is Not Resolved
If Uber Eats and the third-party organizations still don't offer the help you need, you may have to move the case to a small claims court. But before you even consider this option, you need to:
- Ensure your case qualifies for small claims court. This boils down to the amount of money you're suing for and the type of relief. Small claims court doesn't award more than $10,000 for most states. It also only grants monetary awards.
- Send Uber your demand letter. You'll need to notify Uber first and give them a chance to solve the issue involuntarily. A demand letter explains your issue and contains your name, address, account, and phone number. You can then mail the letter to Uber.
- Fill out your court forms: Next, you'll need to fill out forms according to your state's specifications. Check with your state court website to confirm the number of forms before proceeding.
- File the complaint with your court: Once you're done with the paperwork, you should file them with the court. Many courts will need you to deliver the forms to the court clerk in person during specific days and hours. Others will allow you to fax, online, or mail the forms. The clerk will then issue a stamped copy of the paperwork and court date.
- Serve your forms to Uber. Deliver a copy of your filed paperwork to Uber. Familiarize yourself with your state's small claims service process to avoid your claim being dropped.
- Show up for your hearing. Go to the courthouse at the right time with copies of paperwork and evidence to support your claim. Examples of evidence include:
- A copy of the demand letter
- Any agreement between you and Uber Eats
- Any document that proves the letter of demand was handed to Uber
- Uber's contact details
