Businesses in GTA Online usually focus on the group aspect more, so you can't make as much money going solo. This makes it hard for beginners to earn money.  The best part about Vehicle Warehouse is that a solo player can actually make a profit.

1 - How to establish the Vehicle Cargo business

Generally speaking, to run the business of vehicle warehouse in GTA 5 Online, players have to become a CEO and make use of CEO's advantage to buy a vehicle warehouse.

Here's how to do it in detail.

How to become a CEO

Vehicle Cargo is a CEO mission featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Import/Export update. Similar to other businesses, the player needs to become a CEO in GTA 5 Online and purchase the relevant properties first. This requires at least $2.5 million, depending on the office and warehouse you want to buy.

The cheapest office for new CEOs is the Maze Bank West, with a price tag of $1 million. You can buy the Maze Bank West using the Dynasty 8 website within GTA 5 phones. After purchase, just open up the interaction menu and Register as a CEO.

Out of the 9 Vehicle Warehouses, the La Mesa Vehicle Warehouse is the best vehicle warehouse in GTA 5 Online for beginners. At the moment, it is the cheapest ($1.5 million) and closest to the highway, which lets players move vehicles in and out faster. Upon purchase, the import/export option should be unlocked.

2 - How to sell Vehicle Warehouse: Exporting Cars for Money

Here's the way of how to get profit from the vehicle warehouse business in GTA Online.

Acquire vehicles

To begin exporting cars, players need to use the Source Vehicle feature on the main PC of the CEO Office. Your assistant will find a vehicle for you to steal, which is probably a simple job for any Grand Theft Auto player (it is literally in the name!).

Selling cars on Ad-Hawk Autos

Once the vehicle is acquired, players need to deliver them to the Vehicle Warehouse to store. The tricky part is that you need to minimize the damage the vehicle takes in the process. The more damage it takes, the smaller your profit. Just be cautious around other players in GTA Online.

Sell vehicles

The more expensive the vehicle, the more profit you would make. To sell a vehicle, you need to go to your PC in the warehouse and access Ad-Hawk Autos. Click on the export buttons to sell. It is recommended that players use the specialist dealer option. While it costs more, the specialist dealer will always make a higher profit than the private and showroom options.

Using the specialist dealer option alongside top-range cars can net you a profit of $80k every time a car is sold.

Target Vehicles

There are a total of 32 different vehicles to be stolen, with 3 possible variations (plates, colors and modification combinations). Some buyers want a collection of cars with certain license plates and styles - players can complete collections and sell them for a bonus.

3 - How to maximize GTA 5 Online Vehicle Warehouse profit?

The 32 Cars method is the best way to maximize GTA 5 vehicle warehouse profit. This method lets you sell high-end vehicles in a collection for an extra bonus on top of the usual profit. Firstly, you need to understand the mechanics of the Vehicle Warehouse:

  • Target vehicles are selected randomly from the list of 32, but will not double up until players have stored at least one of each of the 32 models.
  • Vehicle warehouses have a capacity of 40 cars and there are 32 individual models available to import.

Take advantage of this mechanic by storing all 10 standards and 10 mid-tier cars but don't sell them. With this, all subsequent import jobs will always be one of the 12 top-class cars.

After you have assembled 32 individual vehicles model, it is time to focus on completing collections. With a full 32 cars roster, every time you export a single model, the next import job will be for that model to re-stock. This means you can get a 1/3 chance to get the model you need to meet the collection requirements.

The best collections to do are the Uninsurable (X80 Proto: M4K3B4NK + T20: D3V1L + Osiris: SL33K) and End of Empires (Roosevelt Valor: OLDT1M3R + Z-Type: B1GMON3Y), as both of them consist of top-range cars. This is the best method you could squeeze out to maximize GTA 5 Online Vehicle Warehouse Profit.

4 - How to use Vehicle Warehouse Export Missions?

The final step is to drive the luxurious cars to the buyer's destination. If there are no opposing players outside of the player's organization in the session, then NPC's will spawn in pairs of blue Sultan RS to attack the player. Try to drive carefully to avoid unnecessary damages.

After exporting the vehicles, there is a cooldown of 20-50 minutes before the player can go and sell other vehicles, dependent on how many vehicles were exported simultaneously. Because of this, groups make more money doing the sale together. However, this is still one of the best ways to make money solo in GTA Online.
