Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Is 1800 Salvage a licensed car buyer?

Yes. We pay top dollar for anything with a motor, from scrap cars to motorbikes, old trucks, vans and machinery. Business Licencing Australia regulates all licenced car dealers, so you can have complete peace of mind that all transactions, identification, and personal data are protected.

FAQ icon

What happens to junk cars after you buy them?

1800 Salvage has a vast network of restoration specialists, car wreckers and wholesalers to keep Australia’s second-hand vehicle and auto parts market moving. We ensure all junk cars get repurposed or sustainably disposed of. Contact us today to book your junk car removal.

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage provide cash for auto parts?

We can give you an estimated price as we only purchase whole vehicles. Depending on your location, our friendly professionals can connect you with suitable car wreckers across Melbourne to buy your scrap metal or parts.

FAQ icon

Can you buy my old car if it's still under finance?

As a licenced car dealer, 1800 Salvage’s cash-for-cars Melbourne service cannot purchase vehicles still under finance. However, if our offer exceeds the amount owed, we’ll handle contract payouts and transfer the remaining funds to you. Alternatively, if it is the same amount due to removing encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for your old car in Hotham Hill.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my car if it doesn’t have a roadworthy certificate?

Yes. We buy and remove any old car in Hotham Hill, with or without a roadworthy. This way, you save time and money compared to selling vehicles privately, which does require a current roadworthy certificate.

FAQ icon

Can I sell unwanted cars in Hotham Hill for a deceased estate?

Only if you are the will’s executor and have all the necessary paperwork.
