Is there a point to buying the impound

Recommended Posts

fangbutt

Why would Franklin, who complained about driving that damn truck, buy the place just to continue to do all the work?

Because that whore, Tonya guilt-tripped him into buying the impound.

I never actually bought the thing. Only businesses I have as Franklin are Smoke on the water and the cab place.

You can buy it and do towing missions when you're bored.

You should by the LSC. It's nice being able to take any car and pimp it out for free.

 

I only wish they let you buy one in the city.....WTF.

Also, Hao texts you after the purchase and laments that he won't be able to charge you for upgrades, as you're his boss now. Even if he work in the LSC at Los Santos International Airport and when you get to pimp your ride there, you still have to pay.

 

As for the impound, you just secure the job of that junkie boyfriend of Tonya. Even if he doesn't do sh*t (even in background) and the only working man in the enterprise is you and the radio guy.

You should be able to call his lazy bitch ass and get him to work.

Or tow away special cars and sell them.

 

I kinda think that the impound is the manifestation of why the honest, hard work doesn't pay out in Los Santos. You get peanuts as payment, people call you a fascist...really rewarding. And you feel cheated by Tonya, as her lazy bum friend probably laughs at you, his boss, doing all the work for him.

The one good thing about the tow lot is that you can use it to find cars you never see after story completion. Though most of these while rare, are just average performing sedans and the like, never any high end cars, so if they're not your thing you might want to pass. Unless of course you just want to tow sh*t for the hell of it.

I never purchased anything besides the property that don't need to do anything for; golf course, submarine dock (can do waste clean but once you do it doesn't respawn so never get extra income again), LSC Customs, airplane & helipad hangers and ticket for boat docks. The rest, forget about it!

It's put in the game to have an activity. Like Trevor's drug and gun running hanger activity with extra cash rewards for every one complete. It's not really bad if you enjoy some extra fun things that isn't like other property purchased you need to protect or drive a truck/van around for when they text or call. Call the police or get someone else to do it I reckon, f*ck am I buying a club I gotta protect and deliver goods for a pissy income? Ain't I the boss paying them to do that sh*t! Don't see a LTD place getting robbed by me and them calling the owner to come kill me, no police come.

I actually like taking the vehicles out the the county when I want to customize them for free. Its a nice drive, but not too long. Extends overall playing time.

rockstar have missed a trick with this, but maybe there was a reason for it

 

you can only buy the scrapyard with michael, but you have to crash so many cars for it to have an income, and then youve got the impound/pick up truck with franklin who even thought hes the owner, has to do the work, would it of not made sense to have the option to pick up what ever cars you want around the city with the truck, then either put them in the impound for then the 'owner' to pay to get the car back, therefore making money, or take them to the scrapyard for junking and again therefore making money?

 

that could keep anyone busy for hours and make tonnes of money

With the way they set the game at earning money is difficult that's why the heist pay big and I'm sure after the jewellery store heist you might have enough money to purchase the towing truck company? It's set at;

$150,000 I think Franklin's take from the first heist is enough (I think?) to purchase the towing truck company which would if your way possible make money bulk money so takeaway the last heist feel for players if they already loaded with money for Franklin.

Actually you can buy the scrapyard with anyone. Well, I own it with Trevor at least, maybe Franklin can't buy it but I believe anyone can.
