So, your car’s engine has blown, and it’s going to cost you more than the car is worth to fix it

What should you do with this box of metal that is now sitting in your driveway taking up valuable space? Is anyone really going to want to buy it? The answer is yes, the team at 1800 Salvage do!

At 1800 Savage, we make the whole process of selling your second-hand, damaged or salvage car quick and easy. No more painful back and forth with private sales: we will help you move that old car out of the way and get some extra cash in your pocket — all without having to leave your lounge room. Read on to find out how.

Get in Touch

Our team is ready and available when you are. Simply click here to give our team a call or send us an email. Let us know what type of vehicle you’re looking to sell, plus a few details about its condition and history. If you’ve got any questions about the process, we’re always more than happy to have a chat.

Vehicle Valuation

After you’ve gotten in touch, we conduct a quick and easy online vehicle valuation by sending you towards our ‘Get a Price’ form.

After you’ve provided us with all necessary information about the car’s condition, make, model, year and odometer, as well as a few photos, our team of experts will quickly get back to you with a competitive purchase price offer. You can check the full list of auto brands we buy here.

Once you’ve accepted the purchase price, there is a small amount of paperwork that can be completed electronically via email. Both parties will then receive a signed copy of the contract for sale, and the salvage car sale process can begin.

Get Paid

Once all the paperwork is completed, 1800 Salvage will send you the money — easy as that!  With most banks now offering the option of OSKO quick payments, you will likely have money in your account within just hours, if not instantly.

Please note that, due to Victorian legislation, all car salvage payments must be made via bank transfer.

Vehicle Collection

Once the contract is signed, we will arrange to have your vehicle picked up within 48 hours, or whenever best suits you. We can even ensure collection is completely contact-free; just leave your keys in your mailbox or another safe place for us to collect.

As a bonus: our towing and collection services are entirely free of charge. Too easy.

All Done

That’s it! Your driveway or garage has once again become clear, and you’ve got some extra dollars in your pocket.
