Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

What if I change my mind after accepting your offer?

There’s no pressure. You can change your mind if our contract of sale has not yet been signed. Once our contract is signed, there will be an obligation to proceed with the sale. However, we will work with you to arrive at a positive result regardless of where we’re in the process. 

FAQ icon

Can I sell an unwanted car for my family member or friend?

No, 1800 Salvage only buys vehicles from their owner. We require a photo ID and the vehicle's owner's signature.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my car to 1800 Salvage and not a dealer?

No other vehicle buyer in Australia has the technology we have to provide fast, convenient and competitive service to our customers. Just read our reviews, and you’ll see why! We let our work speak for itself.

FAQ icon

What does 1800 Salvage do to stay environmentally conscious?

All cars recycled through the network of 1800 Salvage are de-polluted. Our comprehensive service has major environmental benefits as vehicles sitting in driveways and garages not being used emit large amounts of pollution into the air. We recycle all parts of these vehicles through a network of partners Australia-wide. Using second-hand parts is also extremely environmentally positive, as it takes a lot of oil and plastics to create brand-new parts for motor vehicles.

FAQ icon

Do unwanted vehicles need to have roadworthy for you to buy them?

Not at all. We do not require a roadworthy, saving you time and money compared to selling your car privately, which does require an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my old car to you when I could possibly make more selling privately on the Facebook marketplace or car sales?

If you have the time, money and negotiating skills to generate the result you want to sell privately, please do. Our customers like to avoid the time wasters and high advertising costs involved in the selling privately process.
