Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Do you buy auto parts?

No. We only purchase whole vehicles. Unlike auto wreckers, we only salvage vehicles and don’t dismantle them. However, we can give you an estimated value for your car parts or scrap metal. We can also connect you with the best car wreckers in your local area to help you dispose of your car parts in an eco-friendly way.

FAQ icon

How long are 1800 Salvage’s purchase quotes valid?

Our free quotes are valid for fourteen days. However, we will re-evaluate if you would like an extension. 

FAQ icon

Can you buy my old car if it's still under finance?

1800 Salvage is a licensed motor vehicle dealer, so generally, we can’t purchase vehicles under finance. However, we can help you remove any encumbrance you might have. Sometimes our purchase offer exceeds your amount due. If we receive a valid payout letter from your finance company, we’ll handle contract payouts and transfer the remaining funds to you. If our cash offer is the same amount owing to remove an encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for your unwanted car.

FAQ icon

What does 1800 Salvage do to stay environmentally conscious?

All scrap cars recycled through us get de-polluted. Our cash-for-cars service also has significant environmental benefits, as unused, unwanted vehicles emit pollution. We recycle vehicle parts through a network of partners Australia-wide. Using second-hand parts is also environmentally positive, as it takes a lot of oil and plastics to create brand-new parts for motor vehicles.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my junk car or other vehicles to 1800 Salvage?

We are passionate about motor vehicles and always go above and beyond for all our customers. We offer a quick, convenient and highly competitive service using our industry expertise and the latest technology.
