Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Are there any vehicles 1800 Salvage won’t buy?

1800 Salvage will purchase everything in the automotive space, from sports cars to used cars and motorcycles, commercial trucks and machinery. We offer reliable cash if you have any vehicle with a motor - and it doesn’t have to work!

FAQ icon

Do you buy scrap vehicles out of regional locations?

Combined with our extensive network of towing partners nationwide, we can access and buy any vehicle from even the most remote locations in the country.

FAQ icon

How does 1800 Salvage provide the best price for scrap cars?

We follow the automotive market closely and provide the best price possible in the current market. With our vast network of restoration specialists and car wreckers located across the city and state, we keep the demand for vehicle parts high.

FAQ icon

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

No. We regularly buy cars without a roadworthy certificate. This saves our valued customers time and money compared to selling junk cars privately - which does require an up-to-date roadworthy.

FAQ icon

Why is selling junk vehicles through a licenced motor car dealer safer?

Business Licensing Australia regulates all licenced motor car dealers. Your transactions, identification and personal data are protected as we comply with all licensing rules. Selling to unlicensed car buyers can be risky.
