How to Sell Cars in GTA5

Although Grand Theft Auto 5 is over a decade old, there’s no slowdown in the game’s popularity. The well-loved action franchise is set in a world where you get to cause all the trouble you can think of, including stealing cars and selling them. If you want to know how to sell cars in GTA5, we’ll cover how to steal and resell them or legit buy them to sell too.

How to Sell Cars in GTA 5 Online

Grand theft auto car

You can only sell cars in GTA 5 online, not in Single-player/story mode. You can only sell one vehicle every 48 minutes of real-time, equal to one car in-game day. 

Before Selling a Car in GTA5:

How to Buy a Car

You may decide to buy a car and sell it later when you upgrade. Here’s how:

  1. Use the game’s Eyefind web browser via your phone
  2. Go to Travel and Transport
  3. You’ll see websites with options for categories of vehicles

Here are the types sold:

  • Southern San Andreas Super Autos: All-round
  • Warstock Cache & Carry: Weaponized/Utility
  • Benny’s Original Motor Works: Customizable
  • Legendary Motorsport: High-end

You can also buy a car in “person” at GTA Online Luxury Autos dealership or GTA Online Premium Deluxe Motorsport. They both have a changing inventory to keep your eye on in case something tempting pops up.

After you buy your car, you’ll need a garage to store it in until you’re ready to sell. 

How to Steal a Car

If you decide buying is too pricey, well…there’s a reason why the game is called Grand Theft Auto. Steal cars by hijacking NPCs or hotwiring them from streets or lots. The fancier the car, the more it sells for. Also, the better the condition the better the price, so try not to ruin it during your getaway drive. 

Where to Sell a Car in GTA 5

Los Santos Customs

If you want to know how to sell cars in GTA 5, you’ll need to know where to do it. Los Santos Customs is one of the only options. They have 4 locations:

  • La Mesa
  • Grand Senora Desert
  • Burton
  • Los Santos International Airport

To sell your car:

  1. Drive into any Los Santos Custom’s garage
  2. A menu will appear, use the Sell tab
  3. Confirm your actions and money will appear in your account

Run-of-the-mill cars usually sell for $1000-$3000 but high-end cars give quite a bit more. If you bought a car and are reselling it, you’ll get 60% of the price you bought it for. Stolen cars usually pay back 10% of their value, though there are many exceptions.

Los Santos Car Meet

The garage isn’t the only place to sell to. If you want to know how to sell cars at LS Car Meet, here’s how:

LS Car Meet is a new location from the Expanded and Enhanced edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. There’s lots to do there, including buying and selling copies of cars you and other players have, to each other. Bring your most impressive vehicles and let the fun begin: 

  1. Unlock Hao’s Special Works Business, found inside the LS Meet
  2. Open the Interaction Menu
  3. Choose LS Car Meet
  4. Choose Vehicle Options
  5. Scroll down and toggle the HSW Specification Service to yes

Now other players can copy and buy your precise car, though you’ll still keep your version. You can copy and buy from other players too. Prices depend on upgrades, customizations, and the type of car. Vehicles with weapons will not be purchasable.
