Does my old car in Preston need a roadworthy certificate?

No. We regularly buy cars and trucks with or without roadworthy certificates. This saves time, money and hassles compared to selling privately, which requires an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.

Why is it safer to sell my car, Preston, safer through a licenced motor car dealer?

Business licencing Australia regulates all licenced motor car dealers. Your transactions, identification and personal data are protected because 1800 Salvage strictly complies with all licensing rules. Be careful dealing with car-buying companies that aren’t licenced, as it is often a scam.
