Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

How does 1800 Salvage determine my car’s worth?

Our car-buying team closely follows the automotive market, tracking wholesale market trends and auction results. This is how we are able to stay ahead of the curve and offer the most competitive prices in the market. Customer satisfaction is our top priority, and we constantly strive to exceed expectations.

FAQ icon

Will you pay me more for my car’s registration?

No, we do not factor your vehicle’s registration into our offer price. We only purchase the car as-is. If possible, please hand in your registration plates to your local Department of Transport and Main Roads, where you can receive a refund for any remaining registration. However, if you have any vehicle modifications, please include the receipts in our form, and we can consider them in determining the price we offer.

FAQ icon

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

1800 Salvage collaborates with a nationwide network of repair shops, car wreckers and auction houses to supply them with the necessary vehicles and parts. This allows us to connect buyers to sellers. With the help of trusted salvage partners, your used car is reused, repurposed or recycled sustainably since it takes a lot of oil and plastics to create brand-new parts for motor vehicles.

FAQ icon

I still have an outstanding car loan. Can you buy my car?

As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, we cannot purchase any vehicles that are being financed. However, we are happy to help you resolve encumbrance concerns. If our purchase offer exceeds or is equal to the outstanding amount, we need a valid pay out letter from your financial institution. From there, we can handle the contract pay outs, acquire your vehicle, and transfer any remaining funds to you.

FAQ icon

I can get a higher price if I sell my vehicle privately on Facebook Marketplace. Why would I want to sell it to 1800 Salvage for less?

Selling a car privately and getting the price you want is always a good option. However, most locals in Capalaba find the process of personal selling time-consuming and complex. That is why many people choose to sell their vehicles to 1800 Salvage instead. With 1800 Salvage, you get instant payments, less paperwork, and a faster and safer sale process.
