Edmunds has partnered with CarMax to provide an instant cash offer for eligible vehicles.
In order to determine whether your vehicle is eligible for an instant offer, have your VIN or license plate number ready to submit to our appraisal tool. Once our system has identified your vehicle, enter the details regarding trim level, options, color, mileage, and condition as accurately as possible. If eligible, an instant offer will appear at the end of the appraisal process.
Provided that the information you provide about your vehicle is accurate, the offer will be valid for 7 days, and the transaction may be completed at any CarMax location near you.
If an instant offer is not provided, your vehicle does not qualify to receive an online offer based on CarMax’s eligibility criteria, which includes a vehicle history check and other vehicle validation checks. In these cases, CarMax requires an in-person appraisal to provide an accurate offer. Schedule an appointment at your nearest CarMax store or simply take your vehicle to CarMax for an in-person appraisal and offer.
Please note that our license plate decoder is not always able to identify specialty or personalized license plates. If your vehicle is tagged with a non-standard plate, try using your vehicle’s VIN instead.
Edmunds does not have private party listings at this time.
