Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy car parts?

No, we only purchase whole vehicles. However, we can give you a rough estimate for your spare parts or scrap metal. We’ll also connect you with local car wreckers who can dispose of your parts sustainably.

FAQ icon

Can you buy my old car if it's still under finance?

1800 Salvage is a licenced car dealer and generally cannot purchase vehicles still under finance. However, we can help you remove any encumbrance you have. If our cash offer exceeds your amount owing and 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.

FAQ icon

How long are 1800 Salvage’s purchase quotes valid?

Every free quote is valid for 14 days. However, we appreciate that selling your Burwood Heights vehicle is a big decision, so if you need more time, we can re-evaluate it later.

FAQ icon

Can I sell an old car on behalf of a deceased estate?

If you are the will's executor and have the necessary paperwork to sell the vehicle, we can purchase the car from the authorised party.

FAQ icon

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

We do not require a roadworthy. This saves you time and money compared to selling your vehicle privately, requiring an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.
