Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy car parts?

We only buy whole vehicles. However, we can give a rough price estimation of your car parts. Depending on your location, our professional team can help you locate local car wreckers in the Cheltenham area who can purchase or dispose of the parts sustainably.

FAQ icon

Are you a licensed car buyer?

Yes. As fully licensed car buyers, we purchase all types of vehicles, from junk cars, trucks, motorbikes and recreational vehicles.

FAQ icon

How do I get paid for my car?

Current legislation means that we cannot pay in physical cash. Instead, we use the safe, fast Osko transfer platform. Our cash payment into your account is activated on vehicle collection.

FAQ icon

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

As a licenced car dealer, 1800 Salvage’s cash-for-cars Cheltenham service cannot purchase vehicles still under finance. But all is not lost! We can help you remove any encumbrance you have. If our offer exceeds your amount owing and we receive a valid payout letter from your finance company, we’ll handle contract payouts and transfer the remaining funds to you. Alternatively, if it is the same amount owing to removing encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for your unwanted vehicle. 

FAQ icon

Do you buy junk vehicles out of regional locations?

With the help of our trusted towing partners, we offer nationwide car removal services. No matter your vehicle’s location, we’ll tow it to where you need to go fast.

FAQ icon

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

1800 Salvage works with a vast network of wholesalers, repairers, car wreckers and scrap metal businesses to keep the second-hand vehicle and auto parts market moving in Australia. Rest assured that your vehicle will be repurposed or disposed of responsibly.
