Warehouses are buyable properties featured in Grand Theft Auto Online added as part of the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update. They are available to buy once the player registers as a CEO and buys an office.
Warehouses are used to safely store contraband acquired by the player via special orders ordered from the executive terminal in the player's office. There are three different types of warehouses: small, medium and large warehouses. Small warehouses can store a total of 16 crates, medium warehouses can store 42 crates and large warehouses can store 111 crates. The maximum amount of warehouses a player can purchase is 5.
The layout of the warehouses depend on what size of a warehouse the player has bought. If a small warehouse is bought, the warehouse will have only one row of platforms to hold cargo, with the rest being left on the floor. In the medium sized warehouses, three rows of platforms are present to hold the cargo. The large warehouses have four rows, but the platforms are much taller than the ones found in the small or medium warehouses.
In order to get started buying and selling contraband using a warehouse, the player requires about $1.3 million. The player first has to buy an office (the cheapest being $1 million), and then the player must enter the office and access the Securoserv terminal in a public session. After doing so, the player must buy a warehouse (the cheapest being about $250,000). Once the player has a warehouse, they are able to initiate buy and sell missions. Initiating buy missions cost a certain amount of money based on how many crates the player wants to collect in one mission. Buying the max amount of crates, three, costs $18,000.
After the player gets crates into the warehouse, they must decide when to sell. The longer the warehouse sits with crates in it, the more likely it is to be attacked by a gang of AI gangsters. However, the player gets more profit the more crates they sell at one point in time, i.e. three crates will sell at $36,000, but six crates will sell at ~$81,000, and nine crates will sell at ~$126,000. There is a short cool down on the buy missions, so doing the missions for three crates is recommended but isn't the best option for a financial standpoint, as it eats away a fraction of the profit from the sale price. The best way to relieve this is to do VIP Work in between, specifically Sightseer, where $24,000 is common and represents the lowest chance of dying in an empty lobby.
Note that while buying an office is already somewhat expensive, the player will also have to pay the assistant $300 per day for their services, and the office and warehouse adds another $700 per day for property expenses, totaling $1000 in additional fees each in game day (or every 48 minutes). Also if considering purchasing the ~$800,000 living accommodations, note that it does not come with its own garage, so it might be more worthwhile to buy one of the nearby apartments instead as several of the offices have a high-end apartment right across the street for much less.
Buy missions are the missions the player does to get crates. Buy missions have a cool down on them, so doing the mission that gets the player the most amount of crates, three, is recommended. Buy missions are initiated in the player's office at the Securoserv terminal. An important thing to note is that a player can only pick up one crate, meaning they can't pick up two crates at the same time. However, one person can deliver a crate and then go back to grab another one until all the crates are gone. Buy missions must take place in a public session, so it is recommended to find a small session or make sure no one is going to try and steal the crates or kill the player.
Note: Having more than one warehouse is one method of bypassing the cooldown timer on buy missions.
Buying 1 crate at a time is more cost effective than 3 crates at a time, though 3 crates is more time effective. 1 crate= $2,000 2 crates = $8,000 ($4,000 per crate) 3 crates= $18,000 ($6,000 per crate)
A Large WH takes 37 three crate missions to fill costing $666,000 and sells for $2,220,000 (or $1,554,000 total profit) at $42,000 profit per buy mission. A Large WH takes 111 single crate missions to fill costing $222,000 and sells for $2,220,000 (or $1,998,000 total profit) at $18,000 profit per buy mission. Meaning you make roughly 28% more money total profit but spend 3x longer to make it, though the more crates you purchase at once generally the harder the retrieval mission is and the larger the risk you take. Still at a profit margin of 18k per mission one could make more money with no risk at all by simply doing VIP missions instead.
Occassionally you may get the opportunity for various special cargo that sells for much more than normal crates. They are as follows;
- Rare Pocketwatch $150,000
- Large Diamond $135,000
- Ornamental Egg $125,000
- Golden Minigun $115,000
- Bigfoot Pelt $105,000
- Film Reel $95,000
Once the player has obtained at least special cargo, the player can sell it by using a laptop connected with Ad-Hawk website located in the small neat the warehouse's entrance. The more crates stored in the warehouse, the more players recommended to help sell the cargo. The CEO will sell the crates using 3 different approaches, by air with Titan or Cuban 800 , by sea with Tug Boat , and by land using 1 or 3 Brickade.
Selling a full warehouse has the benefit of earning more money per crate than selling an otherwise not full warehouse, but full warehouses comes with a risk of being raided by NPCs which causes crates to be lost. Also in lobbies with more people you earn a percentage more for the risk than otherwise empty lobbies. Having more associates also gives extra bonus profit compared to selling stock on your own with no associates.
Small 16/16 is $240,000 for $15,000 per crate.
Medium 42/42 is $735,000 for $17,500 per crate.
Large 111/111 is $2,220,000 for $20,000 per crate.
Associates do not currently get a share of this profit, instead they earn money on a time basis similar to VIP missions. Every time associates help to retrieve crates their pay is raised by $500, starting at $5,000 and maxing out at $10,000 every interval. They also get paid this amount after helping complete a delivery mission.
Upon starting the "Selling Cargo" mission from a warehouse, the player have the option to upgrade all the vehicle's attributes to a certain extent using the blueprints in the warehouse. The following upgrades are:
|Delivery Truck (Brickade)|
|Armor Upgrade||Additional protection for the Brickade allowing it to withstand extensive damage.||$230,000|
|Bulletproof Tires||Replace the standard tires on the Brickade with bulletproof tires.||$95,000|
|Delivery Planes (Cuban 800 and Titan)|
|Armor Upgrade||Additional protection for the Cuban 800 and Titan allowing it to withstand extensive damage.||$190,000|
|Jammer Upgrade||Upgrade the jammer on the Cuban 800 and Titan to increase interference and reduce recharge times.||$300,000|
|Delivery Boat (Tug)|
|Armor Upgrade||Additional protection for the Tug allowing it to withstand extensive damage.||$265,000|
|Speed Upgrade||Significantly increase the speed of the Tug to allow for faster deliveries.||$170,000|
The total amount of money for every upgrade is $1,250,000.
