Player beside a car in GTA Online

Grand Theft Auto Online players can call their personal vehicles to be delivered to them at any time, but there’s always the chance they could be destroyed before they reach you. This handy trick can force them to spawn right beside you, removing that risk.

There’s plenty for players to do in Los Santos, from taking on Heists like Cayo Perico, grabbing a fast car and heading to a race, or even go treasure hunting in shipwrecks.

No matter what you’re doing though, you’ll likely need the use of a vehicle to get around San Andreas county. These days, players often have a garage full of cars to choose from, from street racers to muscle cars, and even crazy vehicles like the Phantom Wedge truck.

Sometimes though, you may find yourself in need of one of your cars but are nowhere near your garage. Thankfully, there’s a clever way to get your rides to come to you, spawning them right next to your character so you can jump in and go.

How to make a car spawn next to you in GTA Online

The process of getting a car delivered is pretty straightforward. Open the GTA Online Interaction Menu, scroll down to ‘Request Personal Vehicle,’ and choose the vehicle you want. You’ll be informed that your car is on the way, and all you need to do is wait.

There is an issue with this though. Unfortunately, this method doesn’t park the car right beside you. Usually, this is fine, but if you’re surrounded by other players, they can easily blow your car up before you get close to it, leaving you stuck.

Thankfully, getting the car to spawn beside you is actually really easy. Simply look away from where you want it to appear, and it should spawn behind you. You can also switch to first-person mode and look at the floor.

  1. Open the Interaction menu and scroll down to ‘Request Personal Vehicle.’
  2. Pick the vehicle you want to be delivered, and press confirm.
  3. Immediately look away from where you want it to arrive, or stare at the ground in first-person mode.
  4. Wait a few seconds for the car to be delivered, turn around and it will be parked there for you.

While this is a useful trick, you don’t need to do it for every vehicle. For example, the ultra-powerful Oppressor MK2 will automatically spawn right beside you if you request its delivery.

For vehicles that aren’t heavily armored or dangerous though, this trick will give you a much better chance at survival if you’re under fire, and help you get out of trouble.

Once you have your car delivered, you can cruise the streets of Los Santos as you please, and maybe even have a go at drifting with our best GTA Online drift cars.
