The company operates through two business segments: CarMax sales operations and CarMax auto finance (CAF). The CarMax sales operations segment is engaged in providing auto merchandising and other services. The segment operates through four business divisions: used vehicle, wholesale vehicle, new vehicles, and other businesses. The company's used vehicle division purchases, reconditions, and sells a large selection of used vehicles.

The used car selection covers various brands from manufacturers. In FY2017 the company sold 671,294 used vehicles. In addition 85% of the used vehicles sold by the company were up to six years old. CarMax's wholesale division is engaged in the wholesale auction of vehicles. The division sells vehicles that do not meet the company's retail standards to licensed dealers through on-site wholesale auctions.

In FY2017, CarMax sold 391,686 wholesale vehicles at its in-store auctions conducted weekly or bi-weekly at 72 of its 173 used car superstores.
