Decided to move to lovely Paleto Bay, yeeeyyy~! But it wasn't without it's own consequences...

 

Anyone else who has made the move, have you... Lost vehicles you shouldn't have lost? As in... Had a 10 vehicle garage, with 6 vehicles in it, moved to a 6 vehicle garage, lost 4 of those vehicles.

 

tl;dr feels

Yes. Happened to me when I bought the house in the hills. It said I could only hold 6 and would lose access to some of my cars If I continued my purchase. So I moved 4 of my 10 cars to my second garage at the airport, leaving ONLY 6 cars in more first garage. So after everything was moved to its rightful places, I went forth with my purchase. After entering my new place, 2 of my six cars were gone? My Zantorno and Vacca. Im guess writing to R* will do little to no justice.

I think it depends on which slots you have your vehicles in when moving out of the garage. They are suppose to be on slots 1-6 but I'm not sure how well that works out.

Look at my about me page for the car slots in each type of garage. If you switch from a 10 to a 6, you lose cars in slots 7, 8, 9, and 10. Sux4u

it moves them by what slot they are in. If you leave cars in slots 7-10 they dont move. to get them back you have to purchase another 10 car garage. move them to slots 1-6 then move back lol

Just put your 4 crappiest vehicles in slots 7-10 before making the change.

Or sell them if they are modded. The most logical solution.

Oh, that makes sense.

 

I lost about... Eh, a million and a half, two at the most, in the transfer? I have more than enough to get back which vehicles I wanted to keep, but it's still too bad that the system isn't smart enough for this to not be a problem.

 

Ah, well. That's for the replies.

Just buy a 10 car garage and the vehicles come back, move them to the right slots and then buy the house again, you'll only lose around 200k

Hey at least you learned that before buying anything, check with the forums here as they could save you confusion.
If it weren't for GTA Forums, I would have also went from 10 car to 6 car and panicked about losing my investments. But thankfully I read about the situation here and did my research and followed the best strategy for myself which was to sell four cars I was planning on selling anyways and with that money and playing over the weekend, I earned 750K......hence dropping 740K on the Liberator was easy for me. No regrets whatsoever as my original bank account is still the same it was before the weekend event.

Does anyone ever bother to ask how this works before doing it? People used to, back when we only had one property...someone would decide to downsize and make a topic before doing so, people would share their knowledge, stress was avoided....

 

I'm not angry at OP in particular, but this has come up several times a day this week.

I was f*cked.

I move from a 10 car garage, with only 6 cars and 2 bike left

when I moved

I can only see 4 cars with 2 EMPTY slot, and 1 bike

but when I get a 10 car garage again, all cars are back.

so be careful on this

Didn't feel there was a reason to ask.

 

Want to move to a smaller garage, have the appropriate amount of vehicles to fit in that garage, vehicles are then moved to that garage. Seemed like it should have been simple enough.

 

But, it didn't work that way. It's my fault for assuming the system had some thought put into it. I should have known better than to trust Rockstar's design skills.

 

No stress, just curiosity.

Incidentally, the missing cars can still be used for racing. So if you have 4 race only vehicles, putting them in slots 7-10 is viable.

i only lost the vehicles i wanted to lose. ie i moved a hearse, felon, huntley, and super diamond into slots 7-10 in the apartment i was moving from. I only kept the hearse cause it's a non spawning car and the other 3 i only use in races. i can still race with them (and the hearse) so it wasn't a big loss going from the 10 car to the 6 car. i'm hoping at some point we'll get 10 car mansions though so i can upgrade to a mansion in the hills instead of just the 6 car house up there.

Actually, rock star have been really good in my experience with sorting out little things like this. Open a ticket, you might be surprised.

I lost two cars when moving to a six car garage from a ten car garage when I only had six cars to move. Apparently they were in the wrong spots so it didn't transfer them over how I thought it would. Had to buy the cheapest 10 car garage to get them back and then I organized the cars 1-6 and bought the house again and everything was fine.

That being said, this update not only brought me the most fun I've had playing GTAO since i first got it, blasting people with fireworks or trampling them with a monster truck, I actually got paid to downgrade my garage. Selling of my high end apartment covered the house with money left over. Not to mention the cars I sold that I wasn't using anymore. It was a win all the way around, having extra cash and weeding out the cars I never drive anymore.

I guess if you downgrade your garages you need to sell the 4 cars that you would lose!... Or it's a waste of gta$$$

sell the cars you dont want first, that way you earn money, look at the 45minute wait as "moving" or play matches during the wait....i don't get the rush, you save loosing what you don't want to loose and earn more money

I literally downsized, sold anything of high value that I had and wasn't going to use, then moved two cars into my Sandy Shores property and kept ten in the city centre.

 

Definitely living the hick dream though, got an open top Manana and a Picador parked up in Sandy Shores.. ideal vehicles for the locale..

 

I completely deleted my 2nd character and created a new one who lives in Paleto Bay and has the six car garage on route 68, they were lucky enough to find both a Nemesis and a Phoenix, so they were kept, other than that it's wilderness style with a selection of Bobcat, Rancher XL, Bison, plus a couple of classics with a Tornado convertible and a Manana..

 

Thing is, I'm actually seriously not missing much of what I've lost and I generally drive with my vernacular vehicles when out in the sticks.. there's little if any need for speed, and I'm sure my Picador is far more useful driving around winding mountain roads then my Zentorno would ever be.. :D

Your own fault for not using the vehicle movement tool before you moved.

oh well I lost my character at almost 600 hours in, haven't played in a month I guess, bit of sp here and there.  Lost maybe 15 cars, tens of millions of dollars(30 million spent, all stats legit)..been too lazy to contact telephone support but at some point I am going to give them an earful.

 

Losing a car would give me a ton of motivation, losing everything, not so much.

Pretty sure I established that already. Trying to boost your own feels, or did you just not read?

 

You so silly.
