We’re happy to salvage any unwanted car in any condition. Whether you’ve got a busted write-off rusting in the garage or a fine ol’ faithful on her last legs, we’ll offer a fair price, quick removal and an even quicker payment.
Not every car can be repaired. And, not every car that can be repaired is worth the cost. You can’t very well have undrivable and unroadworthy vehicles taking up space in your garage, or your mind for that matter. But we can.
1800 Salvage specialises in cash for cars. As specialist salvage car buyers, we buy every type of car no matter the damage's severity. We’ll remove your car for free, usually within 24 hours, if you live in or around a major city. All you need to do is sign off on our competitive price offers and tell us where to pick your car up. You won’t even have to be there!
Whether you’re an individual seller, a panel beater or an insurer, if you want to sell your car for cash, we’ll be there to get it off your lot in no time.
No price ceiling for the amount of cash we'll pay for your car
FREE towing from your residence or business
We offer car removals for all makes, models, age and condition.
When you want your car gone, you want it removed immediately. Unusable cars are an eyesore at best. If they’re on your work lot or garage, it’s taking up valuable space. And depending on their damage, they could be a hazard to your staff or family.
Our scrap car removal service is free, and we even offer next-day collection. How’s that for convenient?
We buy cars and vehicles of all makes and models: from family cars to prestige classics; trucks to machinery; vans to motorbikes. We buy statutory and repairable write-offs as well as vehicles with or without registration. We’ll pay good money for them all.
While we’re always happy to buy directly from car owners, we provide a free car removal service for insurance companies and panel beaters to get hazardous and non-road-worthy vehicles off the streets.
We offer fast and convenient towing for your salvage vehicle, including same-day collection or bookings at a time that suits you.
Auto salvage doesn't have to be difficult. We offer a fast, simple service to help you sell your vehicle with ease.
Our team is friendly, and we work hard to ensure your experience is fast, convenient, and hassle-free.
Our operating costs are competitive, so we can give you a better price when you sell your vehicle, and we don't charge for towing.
With outlets in every Australian capital city, we can typically remove your vehicle within 24 hours. That’s what makes us one of the country's quickest unwanted car removal companies. Our payments are made through Osko, meaning you get paid fast.
The owner of the vehicle will need to supply a valid driver’s licence and to sign off on our contract of sale documentation digitally. Once signed, we can arrange for the towing and payment will be made at the time of collection.
Photos are essential. The more photos we have, the more accurately we can price your vehicle. Remember, we accept scrap cars and all old and unwanted cars in any state, so don’t feel you have to hide any damage.
Assuming you’ve signed the digital paperwork, you have nothing left to do. You don’t need to be present for the removal - we’ll take care of the process from this point.
With fast, easy vehicle collection, we make it easier for you to sell your salvage vehicle. We can usually offer next day pick-up, or we can book it for the time that suits you best.
Our promise is simple: we will buy any car in any condition. All vehicles are a treasure to us, no matter how bad a state they’re in. Usable parts can still be salvaged and restored; even unusable ones can be repurposed. We consider various factors to give you a fair quote for your salvage vehicle.
Information we need to evaluate your salvage car includes:
No matter how common or rare, we trade cash for cars of all brands.
No, you cannot. As much as we’d appreciate the help, our OH&S compliance guidelines demand we pick up vehicles via tow truck.
The towing costs do not transfer onto you — we cover it in full.
As the name suggests, repairable vehicles are still in a good enough condition to be repaired. You might consider selling repairable cars for cash if the cost of repairing them outweighs the car’s worth. If you do choose to restore them, they can be re-registered.
Statutory write-offs are severely damaged vehicles that cannot or should not be repaired. Your insurance assessor determines this status, and the car cannot be re-registered once deemed a statutory write-off.
Luckily, we still offer cash for statutory write-off cars because some parts may still be in salvageable condition.
No. 1800 Salvage is a licenced trader, meaning we aren’t able to buy cars for cash if they’re still under finance.
But we can still help.
If you put us in touch with your finance provider, we can submit a salvage tender to seek permission to remove your vehicle. While the finance claim (or contractual repayment obligations) remains with you, we can take the physical vehicle off your hands.
Yes, we can. Through our partnership with Sheen Towing, we can provide quick and safe recovery of vehicles from apartment car parks.
Don’t worry — all towing costs are free for you.
