Our Alphington cash-for-cars service is second to none

We are more than scrap car buyers. At 1800 Salvage, we’re involved with the whole automotive market, working with a network of wholesalers, repairers, car wreckers and auction houses to ensure the best price for your vehicle every time.

Thanks to our advanced digital technology, we provide a fast, convenient and competitive service to all our valued customers. 

Being a completely online business, we don’t need to physically see your unwanted vehicle to give you a free quote, and you don’t need to be there when our free removal service collects your old car. 

Once you send us photos of your unwanted vehicles, our scrap car experts will respond with a free quote, usually within the hour. If you accept, our friendly towing team will be in touch to arrange a suitable time for collection. It’s that easy.

Cash for cars of all conditions

Alphington’s trusted car buyer 

If you have an unregistered, unroadworthy scrap car taking up valuable space - we’ll buy it! We pay top dollars for anything with a motor - from a Mercedes Benz to a scrap truck, damaged car or boat. 

With our streamlined same-day service, our expert appraisers will review the photographs you send in, respond with our best cash offer and organise car removal. So you won’t have to worry about a thing. 

Reliable, prompt car removal, Alphington area 

Thanks to our extensive network of trusted towing partners, we offer same-day car removal from anywhere in Alphington, the northeast and across Victoria. With a 10-tonne towing capacity, we can collect almost anything, anywhere.

As long as there is no physical barrier to the vehicle, you don’t need to be present. You will receive an instant cash payment into your nominated bank account once our reliable tow truck driver confirms the vehicle's condition.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Can I sell a car on behalf of my family member or friend?

1800 Salvage’s cash for cars service is low on paperwork, but we only buy vehicles from car owners. We require a photo ID and the vehicle owner’s signature.

FAQ icon

Does my scrap car need a roadworthy for you to buy it?

Not at all. We don’t require a roadworthy certificate which saves you time and money. However, the certificate is required when selling your car privately, regardless of whether you sell a junk or roadworthy vehicle.

FAQ icon

Are your offers negotiable?

All 1800 Salvage offers on vehicles are fair market value and will not be negotiated. You will usually receive our top cash quote within an hour of contacting us, and if you believe we have missed something in our quoting stage, please let us know. 

FAQ icon

When do I get paid for my car?

All payments are made once our transport partner sees and confirms the condition of your car. Then, we process your payment using Osko, which you’ll receive within 30 seconds of completing the sale of the vehicle, and we will tow away.

FAQ icon

How quickly can I sell my unwanted car?

1800 Salvage works hard to provide the best service in the industry. First, we’ll work with you to offer a same-day best cash quote, usually within the hour. From there, we can complete the necessary paperwork (which you can complete from the comfort of your own home) and aim to pick up your car within 24 hours or the next business day.

FAQ icon

Do you buy cars out of regional locations?

Our vast network of transport providers means our business extends well beyond our Alphington service. It helps us access and buy cars and all vehicle types from the most remote locations around Australia.
