1800 Salvage, Carindale’s premier car-buying service, is here to purchase all used trucks, motorbikes, and so much more, regardless of their condition. From the moment you reach out to us, we are here to support you every step of the way.

To get started, complete our digital application, and our professionals can provide the best deal for your vehicle within minutes. Upon accepting our price offer, we handle the rest of the paperwork. Additionally, we work with you to schedule our free towing service, all on the same day.

Whether your van is in Carindale or regional Queensland, our extensive towing network can pick it up within 24 hours. Once the tow operator confirms your vehicle’s condition, we pay you via Osko, an instantaneous and reliable cash transfer service. Before the tow truck is gone, you receive your payment, so you’re not waiting around for your money to arrive.

Well, what are you waiting for? Contact us today to find out how much your scrap car is worth.

Cash for cars of all conditions

We pay instant cash for your used cars

Unlike a car wrecker who may tell you your vehicle is worthless scrap metal, 1800 Salvage says it has a price. Fire, flood or accidental cars? We evaluate them all and can provide a cash offer you can’t resist.

Whether you’re in your Carindale home or in a Sunshine Coast resort, you can always get in touch with our team for an instant quote. Let us know if you get a better deal, and we can try to match or outbid it.

Free car removal Carindale

We have towing partners across Australia, which allows us to offer free car collection from any location within 24 hours. Even without needing your presence, you know that your trucks, vans and everything in between are in safe hands.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Is there any unwanted car that you won’t buy?

We buy all cars, trucks, vans and all other vehicles from all makes, models and conditions. Our comprehensive buying car services ensure that we provide competitive offers for a wide range of vehicles, making it a hassle-free process for our customers.

FAQ icon

Do you need vehicle registration to buy my car?

Not at all. We do not require roadworthy certificates, saving you time and money compared to the private selling process. Private buyers often demand up-to-date registration, leading to additional costs and a time-consuming vehicle sale process.

1800 Salvage understands our customers’ concerns about private selling. We aim to streamline our processes, offering a swift and convenient way to sell your scrap car.

FAQ icon

I just sold my car to you. What are you going to do with it?

Once we buy your car, 1800 Salvage collaborates with a nationwide network of car wreckers, repairers and auction houses. From there, the second-hand vehicles get sold to new vehicle owners or given to a car wrecker to dismantle them into usable parts for repairers. One way or another, you can relax knowing you have done your part to be environmentally responsible.

FAQ icon

Can I receive payment before the tow truck picks my vehicle up?

We understand that you may prefer to receive an upfront payment. However, we only offer cash upon vehicle collection, allowing the tow operators to verify the vehicle’s condition. This procedure is in place to ensure that the agreed-upon payment accurately reflects the vehicle’s state. We believe in offering competitive prices, and this verification step helps us to maintain that commitment.

FAQ icon

I need the cash today. Can you come and pick up my vehicle today?

In some instances, we can arrange for same-day removal. This depends on when the contract is finalized, your vehicle’s location and whether our tow truck providers are available to pick up your car. Please call if you require same-day pickup; we will always do our best to accommodate your request.
