FAQ icon

Can I sell unwanted or junk cars on behalf of a deceased estate?

If you are the executor of the will and have the necessary paperwork to sell the vehicle, yes, we can purchase the vehicle from the authorised party.

FAQ icon

Why is selling my unwanted car through a licenced motor car dealer safer?

All licenced motor car dealers are regulated by a business licencing Australia. 1800 Salvage strictly complies with all licencing rules so you can have complete peace of mind that all transactions, identification and personal data are protected. Be mindful of dealing with car-buying companies that aren’t licenced, as it could be a scam.
