Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy auto parts?

No, we only purchase whole vehicles. However, our scrap car buyers can give you a rough estimate of any spare parts or scrap metal you may have. We can also do our best to connect you with local car wreckers or truck wreckers, Burnside, to dispose of your spare parts in an eco-friendly manner.

FAQ icon

How quickly can I sell my car?

1800 Salvage can work with you to provide a same-day quote, usually within the hour. From there, we can complete the necessary paperwork (which you can complete from the comfort of your own home) and aim to pick up your vehicle within 24 hours or the next business day. 

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 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

Do you buy vehicles 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.

FAQ icon

How long are 1800 Salvage’s purchase quotes valid?

All our quotes are valid for 14 Days. However, we understand what a big decision selling your vehicle is, so if you need more time, we can re-evaluate it later.

FAQ icon

How does 1800 Salvage provide the best price for my vehicle?

We follow the automotive market closely from wholesale market trends and auction results. We provide the best price possible in the current market and stay competitive to keep our customers happy.
