Keep in mind that you can always sell your warehouse as well, whenever extra cash is needed, go ahead on your laptop in the warehouse you’ll see different offers on the table, whenever you are agreed on a buy you’ll have three ways to deliver your goods via Land, Sea or Air missions.

Don’t forget to defend your warehouse

Luckily your warehouse can’t be attacked by other players. However, they can be attacked by the local gangs of Los Santos. So always keep an eye on your warehouse. If you have special cargo stored in a warehouse, that warehouse is most likely to get attention so never store good cargo in a warehouse for too long.

Whenever you get a warning of your warehouse being attacked, defend it with everything you have because failing it would be a deal breaker and all of the hard work and time spent will get wasted.

Good Luck!
