Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy car parts?

No, we only purchase whole vehicles. However, we can give you an estimate for your parts. Our friendly team can connect you with local Hillside or Greater Melbourne car wreckers. This way, you can dispose of your spare parts in an eco-friendly manner.

FAQ icon

When do I get paid for my scrap car?

We make a secure payment via Osko once our tow truck driver confirms your Hillside car's condition. You will receive money directly into your bank account within 30 seconds to finalise your vehicle sale as we tow away.

FAQ icon

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

No. We only purchase vehicles from their car owner. Before providing a free quote, we require a photo ID and the vehicle's owner's signature.

FAQ icon

Do I need a roadworthy certificate to sell cars, Hillside VIC 3037?

1800 Salvage’s excellent cash-for-cars Hillside service buys all vehicles, whether they have roadworthy or not. This saves you time and money compared to selling old cars privately, which does require a current roadworthy certificate.

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. 1800 Salvage strictly complies with all licencing rules to protect all transactions, identification and personal data. Be mindful of dealing with automotive car-buying companies that aren’t licenced, as it is often a scam.
