Turn unwanted cars into cash with Darwin car removal experts

An unwanted car is a costly burden to bear. If you’re a panel beater or insurance assessor, the last thing you want is a useless car taking up valuable commercial space on your lot. If you’re just a private individual keen to upgrade, your old car is just a pile of money you can’t access.

Get rid of your unwanted vehicles with 1800 Salvage’s Darwin towing services. We’ll pay you top dollar to take it off your hands — and we won’t charge you a cent.

We buy cars in any state. Whether it’s been crumpled in a car crash, too expensive to repair or simply not your style anymore, we will buy any car in Darwin or the Northern Territory. 

From the moment you get off the phone with us, we’ll have your car towed and get you paid within 24 hours. 

Cash for cars of all conditions

We offer the free car removal Darwin car sellers love

Not only do we staff our own highly experienced tow truck drivers, but we are also fortunate enough to have partnered with a stellar Australia-wide vehicle towing company. With our forces combined, 1800 Salvage can confidently offer free removal for any car anywhere in Darwin or the Northern Territory.

No space is too difficult for us. We can remove vehicles from multi-storey car parks as quickly as we can from busy panel beating garages and tight suburban streets.

Just tell us where the car is, and leave the heavy lifting to us.

We remove every type of unwanted car and vehicle in Darwin

We have the experience and towing capacity to remove any vehicle, from trucks to motorbikes to light machinery.

The physical state of your vehicle won’t be an issue either. We will happily take it off your hands whether it’s mechanically damaged, unregistered or no longer roadworthy.
