Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

When I sell my car, what do you do with it?

1800 Salvage works with a vast network of wholesalers, repairers, car and truck wreckers and auction houses to keep the second-hand vehicle and parts market moving in Australia. We connect trusted automotive businesses nationwide to the vehicles and parts they need.

FAQ icon

Can I sell scrap cars on behalf of a deceased estate?

We only purchase unwanted vehicles from authorised parties. If you are the will’s executor and have all the necessary paperwork to sell, we are happy to buy the vehicles in question.

FAQ icon

What if I change my mind after accepting your cash-for-cars offer?

There’s no pressure. As long as our contract of sale has yet to be signed, you can change your mind. Once our contract is signed, there is an obligation of sale. However, our cash-for-cars Reservoir team will work with you and always do their best to arrive at a positive result regardless of where we’re in the process.

FAQ icon

How does 1800 Salvage provide the best price for my car, Reservoir?

Our cash-for-cars specialists closely follow the national automotive market, including wholesale trends and auction results. We offer the absolute best price we can in the current market and stay competitive to keep all our valued customers in Reservoir happy.

FAQ icon

Can you buy my unwanted car, Reservoir, if it's still under finance?

As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, 1800 Salvage generally cannot purchase any financed vehicle. However, we can help you remove any encumbrance you might have. Sometimes our cash-for-cars offers exceed the amount owed. If we receive a valid payout letter from your finance company, we’ll handle contract payouts and transfer the remaining funds to you. If it is the same amount owing to remove the encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for your vehicle.
