Don't use Cargobob in export missions as NPCs spawn faster, shoot the hook and you vehicle will fall down and get heavy damage.

Don't use Rhino tank since it may dissapear after the sale.

Don't use any helicopters as they will be damaged fast enough or you will be killed as NPCs are aimbot.

sorry but this is bullsh*t.

 

first of all the hook of the cargobob cannot be shot so that it drops a vehicle.

the cargobob sometimes glitches out for some players and occasionally drops a vehicle.

if this really happens it doesn't matter if someone is shooting or not.

this only happens to some players and for others not.

i always use the cargobob for selling and it never dropped a vehicle yet.

fact is it's alot easier and faster to sell with cargobob.

 

secondly the rhino is still a good advice, not matter if it desspawns after the sale (just call it back again).

 

for the helicopters, although they might get damaged and you might get killed in them they are still a good help in many of the missions, especially in many of the sourcing missions.

I can attest that using a Cargo Bob in export mission works well.

You just have to make it hard for the enemy spawn to follow you by flying high and being perpendicular to the streets they are on so they can't follow. They've been able to shoot at me, I hear bullets hitting the car (or Cargo Bob), but never really damaging it - the value of the car or my commission never went down.

 

Good luck to all!

First of all, I don't trust public sessions. And there's not reason to risk 100k in a session with 30 players if you don't get any "high demand" bonus.
I'd rather have angry NPCs coming after me than other players.

I just sold a car in a "solo" session without lowering it's value. Here's how i did it. Might help out to someone who's doing the same thing.

First I bought the Turret Limo when it was on sale 2-3 weeks ago. Didn't think I'd use it until now.
Now I'm using the cheapest warehouse located in La Mesa.
NPCs spawn and come after you with 600% accuracy roughly 100m from your warehouse.

So here are the steps:

  • When you start a selling mission follow the red line.
  • NPCs usually spawn at the red circles so when they do, park and exit the vehicle.
  • Ways:
    - Wait for them to get out of their cars and just shoot them. It's easy but effective.
    - Limo (CEO Menu), get in the back and fend off waves of NPC cars.
    - Rhino. Obviously. If you have it.
    - Buzzard (CEO Menu), butt beware, they take cover near your car. So be careful not to blow it up.
    - Kuruma. Because why not.
  • You get attacked 3-4 times, 6-8 cars. Just wait it out.
    Then get in the car and safely drive it to the destination, preferably without crashing to get the full amount.
The reason I'm doing this is because not only do they have impeccable accuracy but also startle and cause a panic among the other NPC drivers, most likely making you crash into them.

 

 

I always use a similar method, except I take the LEFT turn after the second set of gates. Stop near the ladder, then climb up and pick them all off from behind cover on the roof.

I use the cargobob for the sell missions. I have the warehouse at Elysian Island and there's a spawn place really nearby (at Merryweathers port). Mostly the delivering spot is in the Chumash area, so mostly I'm flying above water, following the coast. No damages to the car and a lot of fun flying the cargobob..

Don't trust the cargobob/jetsam.  They like to drop your cars at random times.  I've had cars drop on me and cost 28k plus.  You've been warned.  

Roosevelt Valor drunk driver mission. I sniper him from afar and cleared out the cops. Cargobobbed it over the hills and right as my bob did an airshuffle over this culvert north west of Eclipse Towers, it drops and does a backward flip as it falls 20 stories...

My heart sank.

But the damage indicator didn't go up. So I landed and looked over the guardrail.

There is was, in all its bright red and chrome glory sitting on the hill between to titanium trees completely unscathed.

The flip must have had it at just the right angle to stick the landing on all 4 wheels.

I carefully drove it the rest of the way to my garage where 100 feet from the door I spooked a gang member and 15 of them opened up on me. 3k in bullet holes.

Screw the Bob. Dropped the Ztype close to the warehouse with 28k damage.
After flying that slow-ass cargobob to the location, landing it, sniping the assholes, getting in the bob, hooking the car, and flying from the buzzards.
Luckily my friend was there so I asked for some help with his hydra. And we like to talk. Alot. So maybe that triggered the random drop, T for chatbox. Or I'd like to press D-Pad down occasionally to expand the radar. Maybe I accidentally pressed D-Pad right to drop it. 28k in damage. Didn't even notice I dropped it, the bob kept flying.
Wanted to destroy it on the spot, it ain't worth it. Bit it felt like a waste to ask for a favor only to destroy it later.

Was working for a friend earlier and asked him should we drive it or fly it? He said "fly". it's faster. So I didn't touch any other button during the delivery. Luckily made it safe.

Yes. Just f*cking drive. Furthest location for single sales is the Vineyard with 4.31 miles. Takes less than 3 minutes and even if you are unlucky it's not more than 10k damage. 

Fighting the waves is ridiculous and only a waste of time. People who fight during a sale need also a heli to do PS finale.

Mostly the delivering spot is in the Chumash area, so mostly I'm flying above water, following the coast. No damages to the car and a lot of fun flying the cargobob..

This. Bob is right there at the Merrywether dock! Get the car out, park in the lot, call Buzzie, get the Bob (no rush there or you will be forced to shoot that goons), pick up the car. 

Further: don't ditch the Bob! Land it near warehouse, there are nice spots. Using this method you will be able to lift both when sourcing and when selling too without calling Bob several times. 

 

Elysian island pro-tip: use the railways when sourcing public without Bob. You can literally go around the map without any ground interference right from the warehouse exit! 

 

 

I don't stop and fight the waves, waste of time really. The trick is to just blow by the first wave of Sultans then stay just far enough ahead of them that they don't despawn. Get far enough ahead that they drop off the radar then slow down some, once you see them reappear behind you speed up. Keep doing that until you get to the drop-off. I average less than $1,000 per car in damages and that's just from the bullets that hit when I first pass the NPCs. A decent driver will not get any damage from collisions if you keep a close eye on the traffic, especially if you take your time to keep the NPCs at a reasonable distance.

And actually this lad right here, you deserve single malt for promoting right way of thinking. If you can drive, you won't lose over 2-3k per delivery and sometimes it's quite funny to drive under pressure!

 

Okay, it's about time we should bust some myths about Bob, so here you go:

— Hook won't glitch in solo lobbies. I got 4 mil in sales with Bob now, no unhooking so far. Yes, there are reports that it can happen in solo too, but it's inadequately rare compared to network hiccups. So it's lag-related, probably. Solo you're mostly safe;

— Roosevelt Valor is the easiest car to pick up. Try it if you don't believe me. Struggling with Bob? Use Roosevelt. Straight big roof is the best;

— You can outrun choppers with it. Just gain altitude right after pickup. That is the reason I don't like that platform near Zancudo. 

 

Oh, and sourcing wise: use 80% strategy and blow up the car in case you don't like the mission. Especially, that platform one near Zancudo. Not worth it, mostly, but sometimes you can snipe guys easily. In this case to avoid source times, just go the warehouse and sell another top tier and source later.

It's not even the money. But 10k. wow.

During one selling missions with friends I just drove and they didn't spawn like predicted (100m from your warehouse). Instead they spawned near the Maze Bank and by then I was halfway there.
Got scared that maybe R* changed their spawning location, but nah.
And comparing to the Pacific Standard finale, can't wait for them to patch this and completely remove the enemy AI. It even looks ridiculous fighting the same 4 guys with the same 2 blue sultans 4 times.

And with 15min available for every selling mission if you just chill for 40 seconds you won't waste anything. You might even pick up around 200$ cash from their bodies.

A way I found around the annoying NPCs is by inviting a friend to the session but not hiring them. Get them to wait outside while you mod the car and when done get them to ride beside you. I have done several deliveries now with 0 damage. I assume because the game sees them as a random player they are a threat so the NPCs don't spawn. Saves on ammo and everything. I then hire them to do headhunter etc for some cash and sack them before I deliver the next vehicle.

Í bought the Elysian Island warehouse, because my coke business and my medium crate warehouse are there also. It was one of the cheaper vehicle warehouses and, like you said, the railway-bridge makes it easy to drive there with terminator-npc following you.

Too bad Elysian Island does not have it's own LS Costums and a ten-garage-appartment, it would just be too perfect!

Recently, even if you have a friend in the session and hire them, the NPCs still don't spawn whether you're selling 1 OR 2 cars.

I dunno if that right, though...
I mean, a friend and I sold some cars not a while ago with NPCs on our ass. Maybe it changed.

But the trick is to create (or have a friend create) a Public session and invite (you and the rest of) your friends. Maybe 4+ friends. You and 3 friends can sell the cars while the 4th one goes about his business with sourcing or biker stuff.
Then someone else creates his CEO and invites the rest to sell.


That is the "trick" to do this the easiest way. Public session. 4 friends.
But if you're in alone and don't want the NPCs to lower your CEO commission, this is it.
