GTA Online: Salvage Yard – Tow Truck Service Missions

The Tow Truck Service Missions were added to GTA Online’s Salvage Yard business with The Chop Shop update, and you can complete these for a decent penny. While many may not consider its overall potential as great as the Nightclub, for example, there are multiple aspects to consider, and it still remains a great project to undertake.



Since many fans had been asking for such a profitable business in GTA Online, Rockstar Games adding the Tow Truck Service Missions marks a good milestone. Let’s take a look at them in detail and figure out how to maximize the potential income.

How to Start

GTA Online: Salvage Yard - Start Tow Truck Service Missions Get Upgrades

To get started with the business, you will need to be a SecuroServ CEO or a Motorcycle Club President. Now, let’s talk about the properties. At Maze Bank Foreclosures, five locations will be available to you at different prices and accessibility across the massive Los Santos map. Here are all of them:

Location

Price

Paleto Bay

$1,620,000

Sandy Shores

$2,030,000

Murrieta Heights

$2,420,000

Strawberry

$2,570,000

La Puerta

$2,690,000

If you’re starting the Salvage Yard business from scratch, go for one that’s right in the middle of the city on GTA Online’s massive map. Strawberry and La Puerta are the most optimum spots as they’re at the center and provide easy access to main roads and highways. Here’s why Strawberry is the best pick:

  • It is cheaper than La Puerta and offers more easy access all around than the latter and Murrieta Heights.
  • If you get cops or enemies on your tail, the surrounding area offers more means to lose them.
  • The run-up from the road to the garage spot is the easiest and requires no tricky maneuvers.
  • If you want to take a break, the Mechanic will deliver a vehicle where you can easily reach it. This avoids the frustrating navigation you have to go through from the garage door to the spot with La Puerta.

You can also choose to get the Trade Rates upgrade, which will give you a discount on insurance claims from Mors Mutual and on getting vehicles repaired as well. If you’re prone to losing cars, this can come in pretty handy in the long run.

Now, once you’re buying or renovating the chosen property, you’ll be able to choose a model for the Tow Truck Service Missions business upgrade. There will be two variants available – a beaten down, rustic model at $650,000 and a shiny, new one at $1,100,000. The difference is cosmetic, so it all comes down to how much you feel comfortable shelling out. Once you’re all set up, go to the garage and get inside the truck. Unfortunately, it is not among the best cars for customization in GTA Online. You’ll get an option to respray, but only the primary color can be redone.

Once ready to start earning money, click on the Launch Tow Truck Service. Upon doing so, you’ll find yourself back in free roam and Jamal Amir will mark a target car on the map. All you need to do is head out and tow it back. You don’t need to be meticulous with the job, which is fortunate, because you may have to evade cops and other enemies during it. If you get in a pinch, you can even get out and hop on your Oppressor Mk II to evade them and then just come back for the Tow Truck. Alternatively, you can kill yourself and you’ll respawn close to the truck.

Best Co-Op Missions & Heists In GTA Online

Co-op is essential to maximize the fun in the best GTA Online missions and heists that the game has to offer.

Since Invite-Only Sessions are available in GTA Online, it is recommended you try the Tow Truck Service Missions in those to escape griefers. For an added tip, if the target vehicle is marked quite a ways off, start another session with the Salvage Yard marked as your respawn point, and the new car will almost always be placed much closer.

The only time you should try going the distance is if the target vehicle goes for a higher price, like Gallivanter Baller, Bravado Banshee, Schyster Fusilade etc. But be advised, changing sessions for a particular one is not recommended because the selection possible is quite varied and will only lead to a loss of time, and hence, money.

GTA Online Salvage Yard: Tow Truck Service Missions’ Upgrades and Income

A Car Getting Salvaged in GTA Online: Salvage Yard - Tow Truck Service Missions

The Tow Truck Service Missions in GTA Online are semi-passive in the sense that you need to source two cars a day consistently for maximum payout. You can also source only two vehicles at a time as there are only two lifts to salvage them, and each will need two in-game days or 96 real-life minutes to be salvaged.

Fortunately, you can increase the speed at which the cars are salvaged to 2x by purchasing the Staff upgrade for $625,000. This is recommended if you wish to head this business full throttle. Let’s take a look at the profits you can get aside from the $30,000-$50,000 per car salvaged.

Every real-life hour, the total money for that period will be deposited into your Wall Safe. It can store up to $100,000, but the number can be increased to $250,000 if you purchase the upgrade for $750,000. If you travel to the Salvage Yard frequently to maintain maximum income, you won’t need to get the upgrade.

It is important to note that the Salvage Yard’s Tow Truck Service Missions work similarly to the Nightclub business in GTA Online, i.e., they are influenced by popularity mechanics. As such, you’ll have to ensure you keep sourcing vehicles one after another, with 90 minutes of break at max, to ensure you keep getting the maximum cash you can. Overall, if you stay consistent, you can make a pretty decent amount of money. In the meantime, you can also take up the Salvage Yard Heists in GTA Online. Although you can steal only three cars a week, you can earn close to a million dollars with them put together.
