What do you do with my scrap vehicle in Ivanhoe once I sell it?

FAQ icon

Is buying auto parts part of your cash-for-cars Ivanhoe services?

We are a purely cash-for-cars service and only purchase whole vehicles. However, we’ll give you a rough estimate of any spare parts or scrap metal you may have. Our expert car services team can also connect you with local car wreckers Ivanhoe area and across Melbourne to help you get rid of your spare parts.
