Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

When do I get paid for my scrap car?

We make a secure, safe payment via Osko once our tow truck driver confirms your scrap car's condition in Glenroy. You will receive money in your account within 30 seconds, completing your vehicle sale, and we will tow away.

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy auto parts too?

No. 1800 Salvage only buys whole vehicles. We can give you an estimate for the spare parts or scrap metal you may have. Our friendly team can also connect you with local car wreckers, Glenroy or the wider Melbourne area so that you can dispose of your spare parts in an eco-friendly manner.

FAQ icon

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

No. We can legally only purchase vehicles from the car owner. We require a photo ID and the vehicle's owner's signature. 

FAQ icon

Do I need a roadworthy certificate for you to buy my old car?

No. Our cash for scrap cars Glenroy service buys vehicles with or without a roadworthy. This way, we save you time and money compared to selling old cars privately, which does require a current roadworthy certificate.

FAQ icon

My junk car has numerous modifications. Will this increase my quote?

Yes. When you submit your online quote form, please provide us with all receipts from your upgrades to your Glenroy vehicle to verify, and we will consider these.

FAQ icon

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

All licenced motor car dealers are regulated by a business licencing Australia. Your transactions, identification and personal data are protected as we comply with all licensing rules. Be very careful dealing with any other automotive car-buying companies that aren’t licenced, as it is often a scam.
