Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy auto parts too?

We only buy whole vehicles. However, our friendly team can give you an estimate for any spare parts. We can also connect you with local car wreckers in Melbourne to dispose of your parts in an eco-friendly way.

FAQ icon

What happens to my Prahran car once I sell it to you?

We work with a nationwide network of wholesalers, repairers, wreckers and auction houses to keep the second-hand vehicle and parts market moving in Australia. Our experienced professionals specialise in connecting trusted automotive businesses to the vehicles and parts they need.

FAQ icon

How long do 1800 Salvage’s purchase quotes stay valid?

All Prahran cash offers remain valid for 14 days. However, we understand that selling any vehicle is a big decision. If you need more time, we can always re-evaluate without problems if you want an extension.

FAQ icon

Can I change my mind after accepting your best price offer?

You can change your mind as long as our contract of sale hasn’t been signed. Once the contract is signed, there is an obligation of sale. However, we always work with every customer to ensure a positive result regardless of where we’re at.

FAQ icon

What does 1800 Salvage do to stay environmentally conscious?

All cars recycled through 1800 Salvage are de-polluted. Our outstanding service has significant environmental benefits, as unused vehicles emit large amounts of pollution. We upcycle, restore or recycle all vehicle parts through our Australia-wide partners.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my 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 get your desired result from a private sale, it’s worth investigating. Our Prahran customers like to avoid time wasters, steep advertising costs and the headache of administration involved in selling privately.
