Sell your unwanted car for cash

We make selling your scrap car easy. 1800 Salvage knows the value of cars and we buy them all. Every make, model and condition under the sun. This means we can offer you the most accurate and the best cash price for any vehicle you have for sale. 

We buy cars in a range of conditions. Whether you have an old car, damaged car, unwanted used car or a wrecked car that's been written off, we want them all. 

Our quoting process is free and can be done from the comfort of your home. All we need for your free quote is some pictures of your vehicle, the VIN and to list any damage or relevant history. We will get back to you that same day with our highest cash offer.

I got a higher ‘cash for cars’ offer, will you negotiate?

1800 Salvage is upfront and honest with its cash offers. We want our customers to get the very best price they can for their scrap cars so if you receive a higher quote, forward it to us and we will do our best to better it.

I have an unwanted scrap truck, is that something you buy?

We are happy to quote any unwanted trucks! We purchase a range of vehicles including trucks, motorbikes, machinery and much more. Fill out our online quote form and we can get back to you that same day with a great offer.

FAQ icon

Can you still buy my car if I don’t have the vehicle owner’s licence?

Unfortunately, we can only purchase a vehicle from the legal owner of that vehicle. Even if you are related, the ID and the signature must be of the car owner for us to proceed with the sale. 

We are happy to help you through this process and can answer any questions you may have along the way.
