Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy auto parts?

We only purchase whole vehicles. However, we’ll give you a rough estimate of any spare parts or scrap metal you may have. Our expert team can also connect you with local car wreckers, Carrum Downs or nearby to help you dispose of the parts in an eco-friendly manner.

FAQ icon

How long are 1800 Salvage’s purchase quotes valid?

All our free quotes are valid for 14 Days. However, we appreciate that selling vehicles is a big decision, so if you need more time, we can re-evaluate it later. 

FAQ icon

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

We do not require a roadworthy unlike selling your unwanted car privately, which requires an up-to-date roadworthy certificate. 

FAQ icon

Will you buy my damaged car if it's still under finance?

As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, 1800 Salvage generally cannot purchase vehicles still under finance. However, we can help you remove any encumbrance you have. Sometimes, our cash offer exceeds the amount you owe. If we receive a valid payout letter from your finance company, we’ll transfer the remaining funds to you. If it is the same amount due to remove encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for your damaged car.

FAQ icon

Can I sell cars, Carrum Downs, 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 it from the authorised party.
