Sell your wrecked car for cash with 1800 Salvage

Wrecked vehicles can be complicated to get rid of. But if you’ve got one on your hands, then you know they’re even worse to keep around. Shattered glass, jagged edges and leaking fuel are only a few of the endless hazards a crumpled vehicle can pose to you, your staff or the public. 

1800 Salvage can remove your wrecked cars within 24 hours. There is no limit to the level of damage we will accept, either. Give us a call, and feel the weight of your crumpled steel burden slide off your shoulders.

We buy cars from all sellers within Australia, including private owners, car dealers, panel beaters and insurance assessors. Simply give us an address and leave the towing to us.

Cash for cars of all conditions

Free same-day towing for wrecked cars

A wrecked car is too dangerous to be stored by anyone but a qualified specialist. We are that specialist. Our car wreck towing services can arrive on-site within hours. With the heap of sharp glass and metal away from your site, staff or loved ones, you wipe the sweat from your brow and relax.

Give our team a call, day or night, and we’ll immediately organise a tow for your car.

1800 Salvage will pay cash for all types of wrecked vehicles

With a 10-tonne towing capacity, 1800 Salvage can tow far more than just cars. We can haul away practically all vehicles, from trade utes and delivery vans to motorcycles and boats. We can even tow wrecked light machinery directly from your worksite; forklifts, scissor lifts, diggers, and more will fit comfortably on our tow trucks.

If you’re unsure whether your vehicle is too heavy or smashed to transport, give us a call to chat logistics.

Frequently asked questions

FAQ icon

Can you tow junk cars from regional areas?

Absolutely. Our tow truck network can reach most regional areas within 24 hours. 

In rare cases, mitigating factors may force us to take longer than expected. We will continually update you on our ETA so you know precisely when to expect us.

FAQ icon

My wrecked car is still under finance. Can I sell it?

No. As licensed motor car traders, we cannot buy vehicles still under finance. However, we can still provide free storage for wrecked cars, so you won’t have to keep worrying about them.

Contact our team, and we will submit a salvage tender that will allow us to tow away your vehicle while the financial obligation remains with you.

FAQ icon

Is there any vehicle damage 1800 Salvage will not accept?

The only can of damage we cannot accept is heavy flooding. We will buy cars and vehicles with moderate water damage, though.

FAQ icon

Can I sell a wrecked car that’s written off and unregistered?

Yes. 1800 Salvage will buy vehicles that have been unregistered and written off by your insurance company.

Before selling us your unregistered vehicle, we suggest removing and keeping the license plates. Return those to your local roads authority, and you’ll get a nice reimbursement.
