Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy auto parts?

We only purchase whole vehicles. However, our experienced scrap car buyers can provide an estimate for your car parts or scrap metal. We can also connect you with car and truck wreckers, Emerald or nearby, who can dispose of your spare parts in an eco-friendly manner.

FAQ icon

How long is your free quote valid?

All our instant quotes remain valid for 14 Days. We appreciate that you may need more time, and we can re-evaluate it later if necessary.

FAQ icon

How quickly can I sell scrap cars?

1800 Salvage can provide a same-day quote, usually within the hour. From there, we can support you with the required paperwork, and our removal service will collect your vehicle within 24 hours or at your convenience.

FAQ icon

Do you buy vehicles out of regional locations?

Our vast network of trusted transport providers lets us access and buy vehicles from all Australian states without any hassle.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my car, Emerald, if it's under finance?

As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, 1800 Salvage generally cannot purchase any vehicle still under finance. We can help you remove any encumbrance you have. Sometimes our vehicle purchase offer is larger than your amount owing. If, in this case, 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 your used car.

FAQ icon

How does 1800 Salvage provide the best price for my vehicle?

Our experienced car-buying team closely follows the national automotive market from wholesale market trends and auction results. We provide the highest price possible in the current market and stay competitive to keep our customers happy.
