Compared to MAX Allowance® the "Carmax sell my car" process can leave a lot of money on the table, especially in today's used car market. Carmax relies on a computer-driven algorithm to tell you what your car is worth to them and there is rarely room for negotiation.
In contrast MAX Allowance® was designed to create a competetive offers environment where you share a visual and historical story about your vehicle from your driveway. In exchange, a FREE car values coach from MAX Allowance® will link your listing with national car buying companies (if instant, no hassle cash is your aim) and multiple, local licensed car dealers to create a MAX offers war in your driveway.
Keep in mind, trading your vehicle to Carmax (or any dealer/car buying company) is the same thing as selling it. Vehicle market value knowledge and 2-way transparency equals negotiating power. MAX Allowance® works to eliminate surprises and low-ball offers between St. Louis area private sellers and the local dealers or national car buying companies that desperately need to acquire a used car like yours.
So, you could take your car to Carmax and settle for a computer's opinion on your vehicle's value or, you can check MAX Allowance®. MAX Allowance provides a FREE daily view of your vehicle's wholesale and retail market value along with coaching conversations via two-way text messaging. With MAX Allowance the Vehicle Story Vault you build from your driveway can baloon the size of the trade in or cash purchase offers you receive.
