Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Are you a car dealer?

Yes, we are a fully licensed car dealer. However, we can also provide purchase offers on anything with a motor. So whether you’ve got old trucks, motorbikes, vans or scrap cars, Brighton, we’re here for you.

FAQ icon

Do you need a roadworthy to buy junk cars?

Not at all. We don’t need a roadworthy certificate, which saves you time and money compared to selling any car privately - which will require an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.

FAQ icon

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

We offer cash for all unwanted cars. However, we cannot pay cash physically due to legal restrictions. Therefore, all 1800 Salvage payments are made using Osko. You receive our top money offer in 30 seconds of transfer.

FAQ icon

Can I sell a scrap car if it's not in my name?

No. Only the vehicle's legal owner can sell us the car. We require their photo ID and contact details as part of the contract of sale.

FAQ icon

What do you do with my old car once I sell it?

1800 Salvage works with a network of wholesalers, repairers, car wreckers and auction houses to repurpose auto parts and breathe new life into other similar vehicles.

FAQ icon

Do you buy scrap cars out of regional locations?

Our scrap car removal extends beyond Brighton and even Melbourne, thanks to our extensive network of transport providers. They help us access and buy old, damaged cars and all vehicle types from the most remote locations around Australia.
