What happens after selling your vehicle?

Ditching used cars is a breeze with 1800 Salvage. We can accurately appraise your vehicle remotely using cutting-edge technology and decades of industry experience. So you needn’t waste time, petrol or money on in-person inspections. 

We partner with a vast network of auction houses, repairers, wholesalers and car wreckers. This enables our Hillcrest team to ensure all unwanted vehicles get reused, recycled or salvaged for parts. It’s a win-win situation for everyone and the environment. 

Free car removal services countrywide

Our trusted transport partners can safely pick up your old car on the same- or next workday. Whether it’s broken down in a multi-storey shopping centre or far away from Brisbane, we have your back. 

You don't have to be around for pick up as long as we can easily access your damaged vehicle and its keys. After our tow truck driver verifies your automobile’s condition and location, we send money into your chosen bank account via Osko.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you only buy cars for cash in Hillcrest?

Not at all! We are here to buy anything with a once-roadworthy motor. Whether it’s trucks, vans, motorbikes or off-road SUVs, we are interested. If you have many automobiles you want to sell, please contact us, and we can give you a price for each one.

FAQ icon

Can you buy my car if I’m still paying it off?

Usually, we cannot buy cars with payments left, but we can help sort things out. Sometimes, our offers are more than what you owe. If that’s the case, we need a payout letter from your financial company to settle everything. If the amount matches, we can pay off your finances in exchange for your vehicle. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team for more details.

FAQ icon

Can I sell the business’s vehicles on behalf of my boss?

1800 Salvage exclusively purchases vehicles from the registered owners. We require the company's director to provide ID, e-signature, and invoice with their details (including ABN/ACN) for our contract of sale.

FAQ icon

My vehicle still has some registration. Can you compensate me for it?

Sorry, but we cannot pay you for the remaining registration. As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, we only buy the car. Please take off your number plates and hand them to your local Department of Transport and Main Roads office. That way, you can receive a refund for any remaining registration.

FAQ icon

I prefer your service, but another buyer is offering more money. Can you match or outbid them?

If you can provide the other buyer’s written offer, we can try to match or surpass it. Don’t hesitate to ask us for a better deal. We want to help you get the most cash out of your vehicle. 

FAQ icon

I’m not sure if I want to sell my car yet. Can you give me advice on whether it’s worth repairing?

Sure thing! We are happy to help you determine whether repairing or selling your vehicle makes more financial sense. Send us details about your car’s make, model, year, mileage, photos of the automobile and any information about the needed repairs. The more info you share, the better advice we can offer.
