I should have ignored the suggestion "you should see what carmax will give you". Been here twice, will never return. I will never waste my time for an appraisal. First car, They offered me I believe it was $11,000 for a meticulous perfect mustang. I sold that same mustang for $19,800. Like an idiot I wasted my time now having them price my replacement vehicle from the mustang. This is an exotic truck that is not affordable by the average vehicle buyer. Once again meticulously maintained, perfect condition, beautiful vehicle. Pristine. Single and only owner. Carmax tried to tell me the vehicle had possibly been in an accident but couldn't prove it. Wow really? Pointed out screws that may have been tightened or touched. Well The owner of the dealer of which I purchased the vehicle brand new from for over $69k wasn't happy to hear that false and inaccurate claim from the carmax minimum wage employee. Flagship Vehicle. Pristine. Carmax is ripping people off buying cars and If they can't sell it on their lot, they will sell it at auction for more money than they paid you. Local Dealers and re sellers go to the carmax auctions to buy the cars from carmax to re sell them at a profit. Who's being ripped off? The poor customer that goes there to sell them their vehicle. Carmax has to pay their land lease for these huge lots and to keep those blue/yellow shirt employees standing around with benefits. Indeed salary info for carmax:

Benefits, land lease, wages and salaries at carmax = don't waste your time with an appraisal.
I made $13,500 more by selling my 2nd vehicle myself vs giving it away to carmax. First one, $8,800 for a grand total of $22,300! That amount is a brand new car, or even a nice usedcar... $22,300 what a joke I hope carvana continues to take from their pie. Never again.
