Import/Export

This is the side mission for GTA III. For the mission in GTA Vice City, see Sunshine Autos Import Garage. For the mission in GTA San Andreas, see Exports and Imports.

Import/Export is a side-mission in Grand Theft Auto III, where the player is required to deliver specific vehicles to certain garages and cranes in Liberty City.

After delivering a car, the player is rewarded with a sum of money, regardless of the condition of the vehicle. After delivering all the vehicles required for a certain garage or crane, the player is given a sizable cash bonus, as well as floating pickup icons for all of the vehicles that have been delivered to that location. Walking in any of the pickups will select a vehicle, which will be delivered to the player at that garage or crane, free of charge.

There are three Import/Export locations in total, all of which must be completed for 100% completion.

Portland

Civilian

Portland Docks garage in Portland.

The Portland Docks requests vans, trucks, and various industrial and commercial vehicles to be collected through a garage. There is a list of vehicles on the front of the garage to keep track on what is collected. Because the list requests certain vehicles that will not be immediately made available until the player unlocks succeeding island, the list will typically have to be completed much later in the game.

Successful export of each vehicle to this garage rewards the player $1,000. Completing the list awards $200,000.

Emergency vehicles

The emergency vehicle crane zone as well as the magnetic crane that will pick up the vehicles delivered.

The Portland Docks also wants emergency vehicles to be collected. The vehicles can be placed on the yellow stripes under a magnet connected to a crane just east of the Dock's Import/Export garage, near a parked Yankee. The crane will load the collected vehicle onto a cargo ship. Unlike both of the civilian vehicle garages, there is no list to keep track of what vehicles have been delivered. Because certain listed vehicles are only available after unlocking new islands, the list can only be completed later in the game.

Successful export of a emergency vehicle rewards the player $1,500. Unlike the Import/Export garages, delivery of the final vehicle awards the player $200,000 but does not award the standard $1,500 on top of the final reward. Also unusual for the side mission is the timing of the reward given; because the player must be within a short range of the delivery area after the final vehicle has been lifted into the ship to receive the reward, the reward will not be immediately given to players who immediately leave the vicinity after dropping off the final vehicle until they return.

  • Ambulance: Parked by every hospital in the city, or spawns after significant numbers of pedestrians are killed (with bodies intact).
  • Barracks OL: Parked at Phil Cassidy's base, after unlocking Staunton.
  • Enforcer: Parked inside the Staunton Island police station, or spawned when the player has a four star wanted level.
  • FBI Car: Only obtainable when the player has a five star wanted level.
  • Fire Truck: Parked by every fire station.
  • Police Car: Parked by every police station, driven everywhere, or spawned when the player has a two, three or four star wanted level.
  • Rhino: Parked at Phil Cassidy's base (unlocked when all missions are complete), or spawned when the player has a six star wanted level.

Shoreside Vale

Pike Creek garage in Shoreside Vale.

A garage in Pike Creek, Shoreside Vale, wants a different set of civilian vehicles (primarily private cars) to be collected. The vehicles can be placed in a garage north of the Shoreside Vale Pay 'n' Spray. There is a list of vehicles on the front of the garage to keep track on what has been collected.

Unlike the Portland lists, the Shoreside Vale list is significantly easier to complete due to the higher abundance of the listed vehicles. With the exception of the BF Injection, all vehicles in the list can easily be obtained within the district and island the garage is located in and the list can be diligently completed within 30 minutes of playtime.

Successful export of each vehicle to this garage rewards the player $1,000. Completing the list awards $200,000.
