Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you need my number plates?

Our cash-for-cars service doesn’t need number plates. Please remove them from the car or scrap truck and cancel them with your local road provider.

FAQ icon

Can you buy my car if it’s 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 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? Do you pay cash?

Current legislation in Australia does not allow paying cash in hand for the sale of any motor vehicle. Therefore, 1800 Salvage payments are made using Osko. This happens when our tow truck drivers confirm the condition of your vehicle at the car removal stage. You will receive funds in your account within 30 seconds of the transfer.

FAQ icon

Does my car need to be roadworthy for you to buy it?

No, we do not need a roadworthy certificate for the cars we buy. This saves you more time and money than selling privately, requiring an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.

FAQ icon

What paperwork do you need to complete the sale of my vehicle?

· A copy of the photo ID from the vehicle owner.

· A completed contract of sale, including a digital signature from the vehicle owner.

· Bank details of the owner of the vehicle to remit funds.

· Details of your car’s location for the free removal of your car.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my car to you when I could potentially make more selling privately on Facebook marketplace or car sales?

Getting a fair car price privately without expert negotiating skills and spending advertising dollars. Our customers like to avoid the administrative burden, time wasters and high advertising costs involved in private selling as they know not all cars are easy to sell.
