1800 Salvage will pay cash for your broken-down car

Breakdowns are inevitable. But that doesn’t stop them from being any less of a pain in the neck. Worse still is realising your busted car is beyond repair: now you’ve got a broken-down, useless bucket on your hands. As it happens, our hands are filled with cash — how about a trade?

1800 Salvage will buy broken cars for an instant cash payment. We’re not fussy about the vehicle's condition, so if you’re ready to sell your broken car, we’ll pay top dollar for it.

We buy broken cars from private sellers and businesses alike. Whether you’ve got an unregistered rusted hunk up on cinders in your backyard or an insurance write-off hogging precious space at your panel beater garage, you can give us a call.

As our name suggests, we’re salvage specialists — not car wreckers. Your faithful four-wheeled friend will have its components restored, recycled and repurposed to give other cars and vehicles a second life. If you have a broken-down car, choose 1800 Salvage.

FAQ icon

Can 1800 Salvage literally pay cash in hand for broken cars?

Unfortunately, we cannot literally pay cash in hand when we buy your broken cars. Due to government regulations, car salvage companies like 1800 Salvage cannot pay or receive cash when trading.

However, we can pay you by instantly depositing cash into your nominated bank account. Spending on your bank, you will receive your payment immediately or the next day.
