We buy junk cars

1800 Salvage operates with a team of knowledgeable vehicle buyers who have been in the industry for decades and know how to evaluate your junk cars, old cars, and scrap cars. As a licenced motor vehicle trader, our expert team can determine the current market value of your old car based on the make, model, year, VIN, and market demand. We know that all vehicles hold value whether you have a damaged car, a junk car or just a used car that you're looking to get rid of. Our team of buyers will evaluate all unwanted vehicles such as motorbikes, scooters, trucks, vans, commercial and fleet vehicles, and small machinery such as forklifts. 

Our team prides itself on offering same day free quotes that are honest and transparent. We offer top dollar for your unwanted vehicle and understand how important it is for our customers to receive their funds as soon as possible so we offer instant cash payments via a safe and secure payment platform called Osko.

Cash for cars of all conditions

We pay cash for cars 

1800 Salvage will pay you top dollar for your junk cars no matter their condition. You may think your old car, motorbike, truck or van is not worth anything. Well, our team of expert evaluators have a different story. They know your vehicle's value and they want to pay cash into your nominated bank account. All instant cash payments will be transferred as soon as your vehicle is ready for pick up. 

Free towing 

1800 Salvage works with a network of highly skilled tow truck drivers located in your area and throughout the rest of Australia. We pride ourselves on our streamlined services from when you contact us to when we remove your vehicle. Our hassle free service allows you to go about your day without any interruption or rescheduling as our tow truck drivers can remove your vehicle from anywhere without having to be present.
