Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy auto parts?

We only buy whole vehicles. However, we can give a price estimation for your car parts. Depending on your location, our friendly team can connect you to local scrap metal dealers or car and truck wreckers, Docklands, who can purchase or dispose of the parts sustainably.

FAQ icon

My car is under finance — can I still sell it?

As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, 1800 Salvage cannot purchase any vehicle still under finance. We can help you remove any encumbrance you have. Sometimes our vehicle purchase offer exceeds your amount owing. If we receive a valid payout letter from your finance company, we can handle contract payouts and transfer the remaining funds to you. If it is the same amount owing to remove encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for the junk vehicle. For more information, speak with us today. 

FAQ icon

Can I sell an old car on behalf of a deceased estate?

If you are the executor of the will and have the necessary paperwork to sell the vehicle, we can purchase the car from you.

FAQ icon

I’m not happy with my insurance tender — can you beat it?

Our expert cash-for-cars Docklands team will likely beat insurance tenders by proposing a more competitive price. Complete our quick online quote form, and we’ll contact you soon.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my car through a licenced motor car dealer?

All licenced motor car dealers are regulated by a business licencing Australia. We comply with all licensing rules to protect your transactions, identification and personal data. However, be very careful dealing with other car-buying companies or scrap car services that aren’t licenced - it is often a scam.

FAQ icon

Does my scrap car need a roadworthy certificate for you to buy it?

Not at all, we don’t need a roadworthy - which saves you time and money. However, when selling your car privately, you’ll need an up-to-date roadworthy certificate as part of the requirements.
