FAQ icon

My scrap car is still under finance. Will you still buy it?

1800 Salvage is a licensed motor car trader, so we cannot purchase vehicles under finance. 

To help free you of your damaged, unwanted, or scrap vehicle, we can submit a salvage tender to your finance company on your behalf. Call us, and our experienced team will talk you through this simple process.

FAQ icon

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

We don’t require a roadworthy certificate. This way, we save you time and money compared to selling privately which requires an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.
