Turn your old cars into instant cash with 1800 Salvage

An old car is one dicey pothole away from turning into scrap metal. There comes a point where no car is worth its maintenance costs, much less its repair costs, and when that time comes, there’s no place for them but the big scrapyard in the sky. Unless we get to them first.

1800 Salvage specialises in giving older cars a second life. We upcycle, recycle and restore practically every element of your old vehicle to ensure that as little as possible goes to waste congesting a landfill.

We have a wide bank of buyers for salvaged parts, and that allows us to offer you unbeatable prices for your old cars. Even if the car is undrivable, we can still help you with your car removal. 

We buy cars and vehicles from private owners, commercial businesses and even industrial companies. Whatever and wherever your old vehicle is, our towing team will remove it with minimal disruption to you. Get your car removed by the professionals. We even do same-day removal.

Fill out our only form or give our team a call, and we’ll buy your older car for cash and pay you within 24 hours. In the meantime, please watch out for any potholes.

Cash for cars of all conditions

Same-day free old car removal services with 1800 Salvage

It’s always a bit of a shame to get rid of an old car. Often, the very fact that you’ve kept it for so long suggests it’s lived a long and faithful life. Whether it is your first car or a work van that’s been criss-crossing your state for a decade, it’ll be hard to let go of the keys. Still, the quicker you sell your old car, the better of you’ll be.

1800 Salvage offers same-day old car removals and 24-hour emergency car towing — and it’s all free. 

We will pay cash for cars and all other vehicle types, too

It’s not just cars — you can sell us any old vehicle for top dollar. Mud-encrusted motorbikes, paint-splattered utes and vans, banged-up forklifts, we’ll buy it all.

If you’re unsure whether you can sell your older car for cash to us, jump on a call with our team. We can even organise to remove multiple vehicles at a time if that’s convenient for you. Cash for cars is simple and straightforward when you choose 1800 Salvage.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Can I sell my old car if it is undrivable?

1800 Salvage will happily buy an undrivable old car. We’re not worried about whether or not it can drive — we can still salvage plenty of materials and spare parts and give them a second life. Leave the car removal up to us.

The only types of vehicles we will not buy are ones that have been totally flooded. However, we will make allowances for certain levels of water damage. 

If you have any concerns, ring up our team to discuss the level of damage your old car has sustained.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my old car if it’s unregistered?

Absolutely — 1800 Salvage will buy all unregistered old cars and vehicles.

Before we take possession of the vehicle, we suggest you remove the license plates. You can return the plates to your local roads authority to claim a reimbursement.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my old car for cash if it is under finance?

No. 1800 Salvage are legally prohibited from buying vehicles still under finance.

However, we can still take physical possession of your vehicles under finance, while the financial obligations remain with you. Your old car will be kept safely in our custody, so you won’t have the burden of it on your property.
