We pay cash and remove damaged, broken down and unregistered cars in Sydney

Maybe your car’s on its last legs, and you’re ready to trade up for something safer and more comfortable. Maybe your car’s been through the wringer recently and is simply undrivable. Perhaps you’re a panel beater, and you’ve got a couple of scrap cars taking up valuable space in your garage.

Whatever state your vehicle is in, we’ll turn that junker into profit for you. We even offer free car removal services to keep the process as stress-free and convenient as possible. If you live in or around Sydney, our free car removal service can likely reach you within 24 hours. How’s that for convenient?

All we need from you is a set of pictures of your scrap car. If you’re happy with our offer, accept it, and we’ll be along shortly.

Cash for cars of all conditions

Free car removal Sydney 

Old, broken down, and damaged vehicles aren’t just an eye-sore; they’re a drain on the value of everything around them. There’s no point in having an old junk car hogging up your garage space or rusting in the backyard. At that point, they can also become dangerous to you, your staff, or even children and pets.

Not only can we provide car removals for free across Sydney, but we can also tow your scrap car away within 24 hours. Let us know what’s best for you, and we’ll make it work.

It’s not just cars. We’ll pay cash for any unwanted vehicle in Sydney

Paying cash for Sydney’s damaged cars is our speciality. But why limit ourselves? We’ll happily pay cash for your outdated fleet of business vans and trucks. We’ll also pay for old motorbikes and machinery like forklifts and diggers.

Whether it’s in repairable condition or if it’s a total statutory write-off, or even an unregistered vehicle, we’ll be happy to take it off your hands. That means we’re also glad to buy from any seller, private individuals, insurance assessors, and panel beaters.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

How do I get instant cash for my junk cars in Sydney?

We will deposit the cash directly into your bank account.

All of our paperwork is signed digitally to keep the process as quick and efficient as possible. You’ll be paid within 24 hours of our agreement — it might be even faster, depending on your bank.

FAQ icon

What information do I need to give you to trade my car for cash in Sydney?

We only require the most basic information to get the job done:

  • Your contact details
  • The vehicle’s address
  • Registration status and number
  • Make and model
  • Odometer reading
  • Description of damage (including photographs)

All information you share will be kept in the strictest confidence.

FAQ icon

Will you remove my car if it is unregistered in Sydney?

Absolutely — we are happy to remove unregistered vehicles.

If your vehicle is registered, we suggest you remove the plates before we collect the vehicle. You can hand the plates to your local roads government for reimbursement.

FAQ icon

Can I sell my vehicle if it is still under finance?

Unfortunately, no. 1800 is a licensed motor car trader, and therefore cannot salvage vehicles under finance.

However, we can still provide our scrap car removal service while the financial obligation remains with you. That way, you won’t have to worry about your scrap vehicle taking up your space. To do this, we would submit a salvage tender on your behalf to your finance company. Contact our team to discuss this process.
