Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Is your offer negotiable?

1800 Salvage’s offer on your unwanted vehicle is non-negotiable. However, please let us know if we have missed something in our quoting stage.

FAQ icon

Does 1800 Salvage buy auto parts?

No. We only buy cars and other vehicles whole. However, we can provide an estimate for your spare parts and even connect you with local scrap metal buyers to dispose of them responsibly.

FAQ icon

Can you buy my car 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 any encumbrance you might have. Sometimes, our vehicle purchase offer exceeds your amount owed. If, in this case, we receive a valid payout letter from your finance company, we can 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. For more information about this process, call our friendly professionals today.

FAQ icon

Can I sell a used or junk car for a deceased estate?

If you are the will’s executor and have all the necessary sale paperwork. We only purchase vehicles from the authorised party.

FAQ icon

What do you do with unwanted or accident cars once you buy them?

We have a nationwide salvage network of wholesalers, repairers, wreckers and auction houses who help to keep Australia’s second-hand vehicle and parts market moving. We specialise in connecting reputable automotive businesses to the vehicles and parts they need.

FAQ icon

Why is selling my used car through a licenced motor car dealer safer?

Business licencing Australia regulates all licenced motor car dealers. We strictly comply with their regulations, protecting your transactions, identification and personal data. Be wary of dealing with unlicenced automotive car-buying companies, as it could easily be a scam.
