Trade your scrap cars for cash with 1800 Salvage

If you have a car worthy of being called scrap, then it’s fair to say you see no more worth in it at all. If anything, a smashed-up scrapper uses up more resources lying idle than it did when it was running. Whether it’s rusting away in your home’s garage or out on the nature strip, or clogging up valuable lot space at your commercial garage, that car’s a miserable sight. But not to us.

1800 Salvage sees the potential in every car, and we will happily buy your scrap cars for cash that’ll make your jaw drop.

We buy from all sellers all over Australia: private individuals, panel beaters, insurance assessors, just to name a few. 

Don’t worry about how badly banged up it is; our scrap car salvage specialists will find a second life for it, one way or another. The way we see it, the less material sent to a scrap yard, the better the situation for you, us and our environment. It’s a win-win-win all ‘round.
