Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy auto parts?

No. We only buy whole scrap vehicles. If you’d like, we can give you an estimate for your spare parts or scrap material. Our team will also connect you with local car wreckers throughout Melbourne who could purchase and dispose of your spare parts responsibly.

FAQ icon

How long are 1800 Salvage’s purchase quotes valid?

14 days. However, we understand that selling your car is a big decision, so if you need more time, re-evaluating it later isn’t usually an issue.

FAQ icon

Does my old car need a roadworthy for you to buy it?

No. We buy cars with or without roadworthy certificates. This way, we save you time, money and hassles compared to selling privately, which does require an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.

FAQ icon

What does 1800 Salvage do to stay environmentally conscious?

Unused vehicles sitting in driveways and garages emit large amounts of pollution into the air. All cars recycled through our cash-for-cars Plumpton service get de-polluted and we recycle parts through a network of partners Australia-wide. Using second-hand parts is environmentally positive too, as it takes a lot of oil and plastics to create brand-new motor vehicle parts.

FAQ icon

Can I sell an unwanted vehicle for a family member or friend?

No, 1800 Salvage only buys vehicles directly from their owner. We need to see a photo ID and signature of the owner for verification.
