Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

How quickly can I sell my car?

FAQ icon

Can you buy cars under finance?

As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, 1800 Salvage generally cannot purchase any vehicle still under finance. However, we can help you remove any encumbrance you might have. Sometimes our vehicle purchase offer is larger than your amount owing. If, in this case, we receive a valid payout letter from your finance company, we can handle contract payouts and transfer the remaining funds to you. If it is the same amount owing to remove an encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for the vehicle.

For more information about this process, speak with our friendly team today.

FAQ icon

How do I get paid for my car? Is it cash?

Current legislation in Australia does not allow paying cash in hand for the sale of any motor vehicle. Therefore, all 1800 Salvage purchase payments are made using Osko. Meaning you receive money in your account within 30 seconds of the transfer.

FAQ icon

Do you buy cars out of regional locations?

Our extensive network of transport providers helps us access and buy cars and all vehicle types from the most remote locations around Australia. In addition, we always offer free pick-up of unwanted cars prior to payment.

FAQ icon

How long are 1800 Salvage’s purchase quotes valid?

Once you’ve completed our online form, our best cash quote is valid for 14 days. However, if you would like an extension, we will evaluate it, and there usually isn’t an issue.
