Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you pay cash for my car?

Due to legislation, we cannot pay for cars using physical cash. All 1800 Salvage purchase payments are made using the secure Osko platform. Meaning you receive funds in your account within 30 seconds of the transfer.

FAQ icon

When do I get paid for my car?

All payments are made once our free towing partner sights and confirm the condition of your car. After that, we will process payment using Osko, and the vehicle will be towed away.

FAQ icon

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

1800 Salvage works with a network of wholesalers, repairers, auto wreckers and auction houses to keep the second-hand vehicle and car part market moving in Australia. In addition, we sell cars and car parts to trusted automotive businesses within Australia.

FAQ icon

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

No, 1800 Salvage only buys vehicles from their owners. Therefore, we require a photo ID and a signature of the vehicle’s owner as part of all sales deals.

FAQ icon

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

We don’t require a roadworthy certificate which saves you time and money compared to selling your car privately, where an up-to-date roadworthy certificate is required.

FAQ icon

Why is selling my car through a licenced motor car dealer preferable?

As a fully licenced car dealer, we comply with strict licensing laws that protect your identity and personal data. But unfortunately, this isn’t always true when dealing with car wreckers or other car buyers.
