Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy auto parts?

We only purchase whole vehicles. However, our professional scrap car buyers can give you a rough estimate of any car parts or scrap metal you have. We can also connect you with car wreckers near Fawkner to dispose of your spare parts in an eco-friendly way.

FAQ icon

How long is your free quote valid?

Each instant quote remains valid for 14 Days. We appreciate what a big decision selling your car can be, so if you need more time, we can re-evaluate it later.

FAQ icon

How quickly can I sell my written-off car?

1800 Salvage can provide a same-day quote, usually within the hour. From there, we can complete the necessary paperwork and get your car removed within 24 hours or on the next business day.

FAQ icon

Can you buy my unwanted car 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

Do you buy unwanted or scrap cars out of regional locations?

Our extensive network of transport providers means our Fawkner cash-for-car services can access and buy vehicles from anywhere across Australia. So whether you’re a Fawkner local, in surrounding suburbs or interstate, we’re here to help.

FAQ icon

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

We follow the automotive market closely from wholesale market trends and auction results. We provide the best price possible in the current market and stay competitive to keep our customers happy.
