Doordash is gaining a lot of popularity lately. Many people are using the platform to get work in the gig economy. A big question that many people ask is what time can you hustle on DoorDash? Also, after you hustle, people wonder what’s the earliest time that you can get food delivered from DoorDash. I will cover that too in this post.

Can you work for DoorDash at any time?

Yes, you can work for DoorDash at any time. That’s the short version. DoorDash as a service is available 24/7. The reality is that food getting to your door is more nuanced than that answer. Let me provide a little more details to help expand why the real answer is it depends.

You can use DoorDash’s app or site at any time. Can you get orders delivered at any time of the day? That is a different question. The most significant gating factor is if restaurants are open when you would like to make deliveries. Again, this is why the real answer is it depends.

Yes, if the restaurant is open and there are people in your area adding orders to DoorDash, you can make deliveries at 6 am. 6 am for many people is breakfast time. You are likely to pick up consistent work at this time. I would not be surprised if you see orders for Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts at 6 am.

Yes, you have this option too. Be aware of the night crowd. Many places close bars at 2 am. You may experience a different type of delivery than if you delivered during another time in the day. Maybe you like the nightlife and all the interesting stories you will collect if you work at 1 am.

Does DoorDash deliver at 3 am?

We talked a lot about being a driver for DoorDash in this post. If you get an urge at 3 am and want to order as a customer, yes, DoorDash does allow deliveries at 3 am. But again, the store you would like a delivery from has to be open and there have to be drivers available for delivery.

How late is too late to DoorDash?

It’s never too late to put in an order for DoorDash. The app does a great job of letting you know when your delivery will happen. Sometimes the delivery will be 10 pm or noon the next day. People creating orders are fully aware of when their orders will arrive.

What else should I know?

Have you heard about side hustle stacking? You can make additional money while you’re door-dashing. When you’re sitting around waiting for orders, you can do this to maximize the amount of money your earn per hour.
