Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

I just sold my car to you. What will happen to it?

At 1800 Salvage, we have a wide network that connects your unwanted automobiles to other families, professionals and enthusiasts in need of quality spare parts. We collaborate with trusted automotive wholesalers, repairers, auto wreckers and auction houses to keep the second-hand vehicle and spare parts market thriving. Your old car finds new life and purpose of someone who can put it to good use.

FAQ icon

I don’t want my car anymore and don’t want to keep paying it off. Can you help me?

Unfortunately, we cannot purchase automobiles with active finance as a licensed motor vehicle dealer. However, we can help to clear your car loan. If our offer equals or exceeds your loan amount, obtaining a payout letter from your financial institution enables us to manage the contract settlement. So we can pay off the finance and acquire your vehicle. Any excess funds are returned to you.

FAQ icon

I have received a higher cash offer from another company. Can you match or exceed it?

If you can email us the offer in writing, we can make every effort to surpass it. We want the best for you, so don’t hesitate to ask.

If, for any reason, our competitor’s proposition falls through within 14 days from when we quoted you, you can accept our price, as our bid remains valid. Please contact us for a reevaluation if it’s beyond the 14-day timeframe.

FAQ icon

We want to sell our vehicle, but it’s under my spouse’s name. Can I sell it to you on their behalf?

Unfortunately, 1800 Salvage exclusively purchases vehicles from their registered owners. We need the car owner’s ID and e-signature for our sales contract. Please ask them to get in touch with us. These verification processes are in place to ensure a seamless and transparent transaction for all parties involved.

FAQ icon

Your cash offer needs to be higher for me to consider your offer. I can make more money by selling my vehicle privately. Why do families still choose 1800 Salvage?

A lot of Crestmead families find that private selling can be a time-consuming and challenging process. It involves dealing with time wasters, incurred advertising costs, and managing the sale.

By choosing 1800 Salvage, you avoid all these hassles and benefit from the straightforward selling experience. Thereby making it easier for families to turn their scrap cars into quick cash without all the extra work.
