How Do You Complete the Tow Truck Mission in GTA 5?

The Tow Truck mission in GTA 5 is one of the most lucrative and challenging side missions that players can take on. It involves towing cars from one location to another, while avoiding the law as much as possible. The game rewards players with a generous payout for each successful mission. The mission can be completed in a variety of ways, depending on the player’s preference and skill level.

The first step of completing the Tow Truck mission is to acquire a tow truck. This can be done by visiting the Vehicle Impound lot near Los Santos International Airport or by purchasing a tow truck through Simeon Yetarian’s car dealership in Strawberry. Once you have a tow truck, you will need to find a car that needs to be towed.

This can be done by driving around Los Santos and looking for abandoned cars or using the in-game map to mark potential Targets.

Once you have found your Target, approach it and press the interaction button (Triangle on PS4/XB1) to initiate the mission. You will then be instructed to drive your tow truck back to your destination, usually located at one of Los Santos’ many impound lots or scrap yards. While making your way there, you will need to avoid getting pulled over by police or running over innocent pedestrians.

Once you arrive at your destination, park your tow truck in the designated spot and press X/A to attach it to the car. If everything has gone according to plan, you should now have successfully completed the Tow Truck mission and be rewarded with some cold hard cash. However, if something has gone wrong along the way (such as getting pulled over by police) then you may not receive any money for your efforts.


Completing the Tow Truck mission in GTA 5 is definitely no easy feat; however, with patience and skill it can be done successfully. To complete this side mission, players must acquire a tow truck, find an abandoned car that needs transporting, drive their vehicle back to their destination while avoiding law enforcement officers, attach their tow truck properly and collect their reward when they are finished.
