Cash for cars of all conditions

We buy cars & other vehicles in any condition

If you want to sell cars quickly and hassle-free, 1800 Salvage is here to help! Our cash-for-cars team pays top dollar for all unwanted, accident-damaged or scrap vehicles.  

As Crows Nest’s favourite salvage car buyer, we partner with auction houses, wholesalers, auto wreckers and recycling companies to ensure that every vehicle purchased is reused, repurposed or reconditioned.

Free car valuation and honest prices

Unlike car wreckers, 1800 Salvage’s experienced team sees junk cars' value. We know the market inside out and guarantee to provide a top cash offer for your vehicle. 

Using the details you provide, including your car’s make, model, age and condition, we compare it to similar vehicles recently sold in the salvage market. This means you can have complete peace of mind, knowing that our offer is honest, transparent, and the best price possible in the current market.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

How long is my quote valid?

All of our top cash offers are valid for 14 days. If you need more time, our team can assess if we will need to requote your vehicle or if we can proceed with our original offer.

FAQ icon

Do you buy unregistered cars?

We sure do. In fact, 1800 Salvage doesn’t dabble in registration at all. We only purchase vehicles. If you have registration remaining, we suggest cancelling it with your local NSW Service to receive a refund on any duration remaining.

FAQ icon

Would you quote new cars or only scrap cars?

Our Crows Nest cash-for-cars team is qualified to price any new car and offer the same fast Osko payments and complimentary car removal.

FAQ icon

My bank doesn't accept Osko. How will you pay me?

Not a problem. We can make a standard transfer to your bank account. If you choose an account that doesn’t accept Osko, please note your funds will take longer to appear due to the delay of a single credit transfer.

FAQ icon

Are there specific areas in Sydney you don’t service?

1800 Salvage services all Sydney suburbs, from the North Shore and Northern Beaches to the South and West. Our team offers instant quotes for any scrap vehicle and pays cash as quickly as the day you contact us.

FAQ icon

I just had new tyres fitted. Will that get me a better price?

Nine times out of ten, the tyres’ condition does not impact our vehicle offers. However, well-maintained vehicles always achieve higher prices.
