Do I need a CARMAX® appraisal to get an offer from CarCashMax™?

No, though we highly encourage it. When you get a CARMAX® offer 1st, and we beat it, you are going to be more confident and happy that you got a good price for you car, it’s simply psychology. Even so, we are still prepared to give you the same great offer without a current CARMAX® appraisal on hand, the choice is yours.

Why not trade-in my car to the place I’m buying a new one?

It’s no secret that big franchise dealers and used car “super stores” generally aren’t the most competitive buyers.  To hide this reality, car dealers may often inflate the value of your trade-in, then overcharge for the car they’re leasing or selling you, a strategy car dealers have used since the dawn of automobile sales.

Whether you intend to lease or purchase your next car, bringing cash to the negotiating table, instead of your old car, puts you in a much stronger position to negotiate the best deal.

Who will buy my car?

CarCashMax™ is a dedicated and professional car-buying team based in San Diego, CA.  We are networked effectively to achieve high payouts, standing by to give you a competitive offer for your vehicle.

One of our professional buyers are always happy to meet you at the time and place of your choosing to complete the purchase of your used car, truck, van or SUV.

Do you purchase vehicles with a salvaged title?

Not usually, however, there are exceptions to every rule. If through our appraisal process we determine your vehicle has not sustained damage to the frame, posing a safety risk to future owners, we may purchase salvaged title vehicles for up to $5,000 cash.

Where are you located?

We are currently focused in San Diego, CA with plans to expand our service nationally.

What is my car worth?


What are your hours of operation?

Selling to CARMAX® just seems easy, and that’s worth something, right?

Sure, it all comes down to how much you value convenience.  It’s the truth that most of the time trading in or selling your vehicle to a professional buyer is the easiest way to “unload it”. And in the end convenience costs money, the question is, how much?

Our goal is to provide you with the most competitive AND convenient solution to selling your vehicle, that’s why we beat CARMAX® offers by up to $1,000 AND come to you.

But won’t I get the most money with a “Private Party” sale?

You might, if you’re willing to take on the risk and inconvenience.  In most cases, however, when you account for all that’s involved, the potential for a little extra may not be worth the hassle.

Finding a decent buyer that knows exactly what they want and is ready to pay for it takes time and headache.

More than likely you will spend considerable time entertaining bargain hunters, tire-kickers without cash, craigslist flakes or worse.
