Import Export mission GTA: San Andreas


San Andreas Import/export guide

- by IKHAM

Like the previous GTA games, the import/export job is included. In San Andreas, you do not get the chance to do any exporting or importing until you complete the mission 'Customs Fast Track'. Customs fast track is one of CJ's garage missions, which only becomes available when you buy Wang Cars (opposite the building site next to CJ's garage). Wang car's can only be bought when you get at least bronze for all test in driving school and completing the mission "Ya Ka Boom Boom". Find out more from the Getting wang cars topic.

Once this mission is complete, you can return to the docks to find a blackboard with a list of cars on it. There is also the yellow crane next to the ship that you used in the mission.

Basically all you have to do is find the vehicle's located on the list's. There is 3 lists in total, each one must be completed before you move onto the next.

The import export crane location

Use the map above to locate the place where you import and export the cars. There is a cargo ship, big yellow crane and a blackboard with vehicles written on it.

The import export carlist board

The list on the blackboard tells you which cars are needed for export. There are 3 lists in total which need to be completed in turn. There is a handy little message which pops when you enter a vehicle that is currently on the export list, no matter where you are in San Andreas. (see below for all 3 lists)

The import export Crane

Use the crane to lift the cars onto the ship deck. If you have forgotten the controls, they are as follows. Rotate and navigate the cranes position with the movement controls. Lower the magnet with the X button and drop it onto the cars roof. Once connected to the car, raise the magnet with the SQUARE button. Move the car up onto the deck and drop it into the red halo. Release the magnet by pressing the CIRCLE button.

Be careful when moving the car, if you cause any damage, it will be deducted from it's value and you will recieve less money.

When you get in a car and the message pops up telling you that it is required at the export place, i strongly advise you to take it there straight away, if possible. Exporting all cars takes a very long time if you do it all in one go. It's better to just do it as you find them.

Also, if you find a rare car, or a car that you have never seen before, double check on all the lists above, to see if it's needed. If it is then save it in your garage, because you might spend hours later on trying to find it.

At the export ship, there is a ramp up the side. Use that if you have a bike, because it's quicker, but dont take a car up there. You'll only end up damaging it and losing money.

The more cars you export, the more cars are available for import. Walk up to the board to check which cars you can import.

As good of an idea as that is, it doesn't tell you anything. It just tells you the number of vehicles that you've exported. I've already looked.
