With branches across Australia ready to buy your car, we’re never far away. Free scrap car collection can be arranged at a time to suit you. We’ll collect from any accessible location, just let us know where you’d like your car to be collected from and we’ll be in touch to arrange the details with you.

Arranging scrap car collection

Arranging the collection of your car is quick and easy, plus having your car collected is free! Once you’ve accepted our quote to sell your car, your local CarTakeBack wrecker will call you to sort out a convenient time and date to collect your car, and answer any questions you may have.

We’ll do our best to fit in with you and most scrap car collections are arranged within a day or two of you accepting a quote. Collections usually take place from Monday to Saturday between 7am and 7pm. But please let us know if you’re in a hurry, or you need us to collect your car outside of these hours.

What happens when you have your car collected

We’ll send you a reminder, by text or email, to confirm the collection date and time that we agreed with you.

On the collection day you’ll need to have a few things ready…

  • your ID
  • car keys
  • any documents you might have for the car
  • and don’t forget to remove any personal belongings and rubbish from your car

When we collect your car, we’ll help with the paperwork, and sort the payment. It couldn’t be easier!
