How the new laws banning cash for cars will affect you if you’re buying a car or selling one
Cash ban for scrap cars comes into effect in Sydney
If you’re a ‘cash for car’ dealer, or a customer looking to sell your car to one, new laws now apply to your transactions and how you conduct them.
Effective from November 1, 2018, cash can no longer be the means by which a transaction – a sale or a purchase – can be made. All payments for scrap vehicles must now be made by cheque or go through an EFT (electronic funds transfer) system through your bank.
Government – the beneficiary
Who benefits from the new laws? The Government and the people do.
The new ‘cash for car laws’ will allow the Government to understand just how much cash the industry generates so it can be taxed more effectively.
But, what the laws will also do is halt the sale of stolen cars that are sold to ‘unregistered dealers’ engaged in the trade. Every year, more than 5000 cars are stolen in Sydney.
A vehicle is stolen every 12 hours in Black town alone (664 vehicles were stolen in the suburb in 2017 according to New South Wales Police Force detective Paul Tickner) – making it the car theft capital of Australia.
Dealers who do not respect the new laws will receive heavy fines. These could be up to $30,000. Furthermore, police will be given new powers to enter and search car yards without warrants. Dealers will have to maintain records of sales – if a car is on the premises but not on the books – it could be reason enough for the vehicle to be impounded and the business owner to be arrested.
Mega Car Removal welcomes the new laws
At Mega Car Removal, we believe the legislation is fair. We fully support the move by the New South Wales and Victorian Governments to crack down on scrap metal crooks dealing in stolen cars. While we fully support the new laws, we would also like to humbly remind the Government that each cash for car dealer provides employment to 18 people on average.
The registered dealerships are run by simple people –who keep full records that comply with the law – even prior to it being introduced.
It is not a problem for us to go through EFT systems – the question we have for the authorities is – will our customers be able to make the shift – as many are strapped for cash and need it more urgently than we, or government officials, do.”

If you are planning on selling your car, the first step to take is to know how you will go about it. You need to have a plan. Who do you planning on selling it to? Cars are a significant investment, and just like other assets, it comes with a lot of risks. Selling a Damage Car privately results in getting great deals, but the prices do not always reflect the time and efforts included in the process.
Time to time, you will meet candidates who are not serious buyers, some are scams and cons, and you end up wasting time or being taken in by a scam buyer. What are some of the ways to protect yourself from such incidences?
Do a thorough screen of the callers
This is the simplest way to save time wasted by non-serious buyers. Putting up a car in good shape, repairing, having it repainted, taking photos and putting it up online for sale is never an easy task and the last thing you want it to deal with people who are not up for sale. Some are only trying their luck to see how far you can lower the price, or even worse; there are those whose aim is to scam you.
The only way to get away from such is to be aware of the sort of things that scammers are likely to say before you get sucked in the web of their lies. Scammers are the biggest disadvantage of selling cars privately, and it is, therefore, essential to be cautious and take your time to screen every inquiry each one of them makes regarding the vehicle. When a person calls, start by asking their full names, their location and if they wish to see the vehicle first before closing the deal. If there are hesitations when answering these questions, hang up and do not reply to their emails.
Does their offer sound good?
One of the common tricks that most scammers use on unsuspecting sellers is making them believe that they are willing to pay more than you are actually asking for the car, but only if you will agree to ship it overseas. It may sound dumb but believe it or not, there is just something about these scammers that is easy to believe, and before you know it, you have already fallen victim. One of the easiest ways to limit risk when selling your vehicle privately is using your common sense and do not believe everything that hits your ears no matter how sweet and convenient it may sound.
Avoid disclosing too much information
The cases where people get harmed when selling their cars are rare, but they do happen. You should not leave any chances. The first thing is to limit the amount of information you give out when advertising your car sale online. Some of these fake buyers are not interested in buying a car. Instead, they are only after your personal information. It is advisable to stay anonymous and accept the initial inquiries through a separate email purposely created for this task.
Moreover, be careful with who you agree to meet, and where you plan on meeting them. Do not meet prospects in your home unless you are selling to a friend. Meet in public areas to discuss the deal.
Consider the form of payment
You have to ensure that the kind of payment you agree on is safe. There are numerous ways fake buyers use to get away with your car without paying for it. While cash payment may sound like the best, you need to look at other factors such as counterfeit money. The same applies to personal checks as it may bounce and you will end up with nothing. Cashier’s cheques are not any different. You would be surprised by how easy faking one can be. To ensure you are safe, be the one to set the payment terms, and anyone who does not agree to it should leave.
Based on these points, you could be feeling like selling your vehicle safely is impossible but that does not have to be the case especially with car removals where you get instant cash. The best thing about dealing with such buyers is that they are registered and established buyers, and therefore you can trust that nothing will go wrong.
If you are looking for Cash for Cars Buyer, contact us today on 0421 812 819 and sell your car instantly, safely and at the best price in the market.

Does It Start-Up – Can You Get It Down the Road?
If you can still drive the car, it is worth more to the removal company. A working car means working parts, and as we all know, good secondhand parts can fetch good money. Or the removal company may be able to work on the car, getting it ready to be resold. Both options increase the value of a scrap car or truck.
Is It Salvageable?
Is the car salvageable? Are there parts and components that can be reused? If the car is salvageable, or parts under the hood can be salvaged, the car will have more worth. These details that you provide will have an impact on the final valuation. So, knowing exactly what does & does not work in your car is very essential to obtain an accurate valuation.
How Much Does the Car Weigh?
It is always good to use the weight of the car as a last resort. Suppose you receive an estimate that you think is not enough, you can use the weight to value the car. The weight of your car is a couple of tonnes of metals. Metals are recycled on a per tonne basis, so you should get a handsome amount for the car in the weight of its metals.
