Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy car parts?

No. 1800 Salvage only buys whole vehicles. We can give you an estimate for the spare parts or scrap metal you may have. Our friendly team can also connect you with local car wreckers or truck-wrecking businesses in the wider Melbourne area to enable you to dispose of your auto parts in an eco-friendly manner.

FAQ icon

Will you still buy my car, Upwey, if it's under finance?

As a licensed motor vehicle dealer, 1800 Salvage generally cannot purchase any vehicle still under finance. However, we can help you remove an encumbrance. Sometimes, our offer is larger than your amount owing. If, in this case, we get 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 encumbrance, we can pay your finance in exchange for the vehicle.

FAQ icon

Does my car need a roadworthy certificate for you to buy it?

1800 Salvage pays cash for all vehicles, whether they have a roadworthy certificate or not. This saves car owners time and money compared to selling privately, which requires an up-to-date roadworthy certificate.

FAQ icon

Why should I sell my old car to 1800 Salvage and not a dealer?

We offer outstanding service and decades of expertise and use the latest technology to provide a fast, convenient and competitive service to all our valued customers. Just read our reviews, and you’ll see why!

FAQ icon

What paperwork do you need to complete the sale of my Upwey vehicle?

Our cash-for-cars Upwey team needs the following information:

  • A copy of your photo ID as the vehicle owner
  • A completed contract of sale including a digital signature 
  • Your bank details to remit funds 
  • Location details for your free car removal Upwey
