Free car removal services for damaged cars

A damaged car can be a dangerous car. Jagged metal edges, sharp shattered glass and heavy loose components are always a hazard. Even if the car’s been made safe, it can still eat money by taking up valuable space in your business’s garage.

Choose our free car removal services if you have a wrecked or damaged car. 1800 Salvage offers free same-day damaged car removals. Our 24-hour emergency towing partners will ensure your car is safely removed as quickly as possible. 

We will pay instant cash for any damaged vehicle

It’s not just damaged cars we buy. Vans, motorcycles, boats, trailers, rally cars, and vintage cars are all easily handled by our tow team. We can even remove damaged light machinery, such as forklifts and scissor lifts.

If you’ve got several vehicles you’d like to get rid of at once, we can help you get rid of them. Get in touch with our team, and we’ll discuss how we can buy your damaged vehicles for cash.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

What level of car damage is acceptable for 1800 Salvage?

The only type of car we cannot buy is a totally flooded one, though we still accept cars with significant levels of water damage. 

To discover whether we can buy your water-damaged car for cash, we suggest you contact our team and send through some photos.

FAQ icon

Can you tow damaged cars from remote and difficult areas?

1800 Salvage can tow a damaged car from practically anywhere. Whether your vehicle is on the shoulder of a busy highway, in a garage in a remote town or on the top level of a multi-storey car park in the city, we can tow it.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my damaged vehicle if it is still under finance?

No — as a licensed motor car trader, 1800 Salvage cannot salvage vehicles under finance, and therefore we will not buy your vehicle.

However, we can still take your vehicle off of your hands. While the financial obligation remains with you, we can at least take the physical car off your hands.

Contact our team, and we will submit a salvage tender to your financial company on your behalf.
