Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

What do I do with my number plates?

Please remove the number plates from your used car or junk automobile in Port Melbourne and cancel them with Vic Roads if possible.

FAQ icon

Are you a Melbourne-based company?

Our main office is located in Melbourne and we have suppliers all over Australia which allow us to purchase and remove cars from a range of locations.

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy auto parts too?

No. Our cash-for-cars Port Melbourne service only purchases whole vehicles. However, we can estimate the value of your car parts or scrap metal. Our friendly professionals are also happy to connect you with car wreckers in Melbourne to dispose of your parts responsibly.

FAQ icon

Can I sell an unwanted car for my family or a friend?

No, we only purchase vehicles from their owners. We need to see a valid photo ID and signature to verify this.

FAQ icon

How does 1800 Salvage stay environmentally conscious?

All cars recycled through us get de-polluted. Our comprehensive service also has significant environmental benefits, as unused vehicles emit large amounts of pollution. We recycle vehicles and their parts through our nationwide partner network. Using second-hand parts is also environmentally positive, as it takes a lot of oil and plastics to create new motor vehicle parts.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my unwanted car to you when I could make more selling privately on Facebook marketplace or car sales?

If you have the time, money and negotiating skills to generate the result you want to sell privately, please do. Our valued customers avoid time wasters, high advertising costs and the administrative burden of privately selling.
