Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy car 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 Mentone and in the wider Melbourne area so that you can dispose of your spare parts in an eco-friendly manner.

FAQ icon

Is your Mentone cash-for-cars offer negotiable?

Yes. All our vehicle offers are firm and non-negotiable. We’ll give you a fair price based on the current market. Please let us know if you believe we missed something in our quoting stage.

FAQ icon

What does 1800 Salvage do to stay environmentally conscious?

All cars recycled through 1800 Salvage get de-polluted. Our comprehensive service has environmental benefits as unused vehicles emit large amounts of pollution into the air. We recycle vehicle parts through our Australia-wide partner network. Using second-hand parts is also more sustainable as it takes a lot of oil and plastics to create brand-new parts for motor vehicles.

FAQ icon

Can I sell an old car on behalf of my family member or friend?

No, we only buy vehicles from their rightful owners. We require a photo ID and signature as proof of identification.

FAQ icon

What if I change my mind after accepting your offer for my car, Mentone?

There’s no pressure. You can change your mind anytime if our sale contract has not been signed. Once our contract is signed, there is an obligation of sale. We will work with you to achieve a positive result regardless of where we are.
