I have over 42 crates acquired, so I've unlocked all the discounts and done all the variations of the missions for them.  I have 37 crates of Counterfeit Goods to sell.  I could push it up to 50 for a higher bonus, but 13 more runs (which likely means at least 3 more Titans to defend!) sounds grueling.

 

I live in solo lobbies (which, has become much easier to get into and more stable over the last week, despite Rockstar's efforts to stop them), so how much BS am I looking at for selling them alone?

I've done a few small-sales that were pretty chill (Skylift, Alpha Z1, Cargobob), but I read that I could get as many as eight Havocs to fly in 20 minutes?

For 37 crates you definitely want a team. I'd say 8 just to be safe but 4 sounds manageable too.

Anything over 20 crates is a bitch to solo.

I had a Cargobob mission from LSIA to Paleto, single crate.

Had enough time to get there, but doing so as fast as possible with zero stops or hold-ups, the Cargobob will not make it back to LSIA for the RP bonus.

Time ran out while I was just entering the airport.

So if there were two 'Bobs or two crates, that mission is stone-cold impossible to do alone.

 

Would absolutely not recommend doing a full sale alone.

No. 

 

I sold 25 crates twice and got the Havok choppers both times. They gave me 6 havoks to deliver in small, tight areas in 20 minutes. Always the timer would run out as I'm going back for the last havok with my Hydra at full speed. 5 more minutes and it would be possible.

 

I've also sold 20 crates. I was given 2 VERY SLOW Skylift choppers but was able to deliver them with time to spare for a possible 3rd.

 

All of my other sales were no more than 10 crates. So far I've been given 3 havoks, 1 Mogul, 2 Alphas, and 1 Tula per 10 crate sale.

 

This video was very useful for me, especially 2:19

Don't sell more than 10 crates ideally. There's still a bit of breathing room until you hit 20 but do not try to sell more than 20 by yourself, at all.

Thanks,  I may wait till I am done getting all the discounts and try and get a group to sell the whole lot .

I sold a full lot, and it gave me a couple of cargoobs to deliver to Sandy Shores from the fort. It was an easy million.

I tried 1 sale by myself. I think there was 10 checkpoints. By the time I got to the second one my plane crashed from taking so much enemy fire.

The Mogul delivery is real BS. Police choppers and NPC jets attack you(depending variations for jets, spawned during a 4 Moguls sale). 

 

You can make crash/destroy a few Police choppers, but more will spawn, the Mogul is very slow...etc

The two "safe" landmarks are:
- 10 crates if solo
- 25 crates if 2

More crates = more vehicles, more partners = less trouble.

You were flying a Mogul, right? Old style prop plane with a turret on top?

You have the same kind of sale mission with a Seabreeze (the plane that can float with a propeller on top of the cockpit). But it's fast, at least, and I survived 2 NPC's Lazer without problems, their missile are only partially homing. A few dodge moves and you're good to go.

I dont remember what plane I had but there were no lazers after me. I think it was just helis but Im not sure. I know no one fired missiles at me but they just kept shooting until my plane was smoking and I crashed.

I took off from the base and the first dropoff was up north around the base of chiliad. So it all happened pretty fast. At that point it was late and I just shut my console off.

If buzzards were fast enough to catch up, then yeah it was the Mogul.
This mission is the hangar response to the Post Op sale mission from bikers.

The Mogul crashes regardless of enemy fire. I've gotten that mission twice and the plane always dies just as you're going for the last delivery. I think the trick is to make sure your last 2 deliveries are close to one another so you can glide the rest of the way.

Can you switch sessions after you recieve the unwanted selling mission? What's the penalty? Will you lose some crates as in other businesses?

Someone in another thread said 3.

30-60 minutes of effort gone, but better than losing all of it because they have you an impossible scenario.

If your selling 10 crates and switch you lose one crate only as they dont cost anything other than time it aint bad

Sold 25 chemicals the other day and I was very lucky, 2 Cargobobs to deliver 4 containers, all the dropoffs in the city (LSIA hangar 1). And no enemies. Easy peasy.

 

But selling more than 10 solo is a high risk, better don't try.

Well I did it, though not a full 50-crate sale, it was over 25 crates, which put me in the Screwed Zone.
35 crates, solo, with two Skylifts, from Hanger 3497 to the ship by Simeon's dock and a barge to the northeast of there.
Also brought both Skylifts back to the hanger and had about 50 seconds to spare.

I tried to sell with a random associate twice, but the first time I got 8 Havocs and the second time I got three Moguls. I force-closed the game each time, but I lost a total of six crates, and that's about an hour of acquiring lost, so I brought my total back to 35 for the bonus and tried it solo.

The reward exceeded what I should have gotten, though. I was supposed to get $948,000 but even after Ron's cut I got more than $1.1M. Not sure if the extra was from delivering the Skylifts back or what. I was alone in the lobby.

10 is the max unless the sale gives you Havocs or some sh*t. In that case, it doesn't matter how many crates you're selling. You're just f*cked.

i stoped at 42 steals and i made the mistake and did random jobs so i had to do 7 sales all from 5 - 11 crates i saved the 1 that had most in it, 13 i think and just add it that if i ever want to add any more, only did it to unlock the cheaper prices anyways

i failed a few times i was about 85%
