I needed a stereo upgrade and they did the job for a reasonable price. Everything went pretty normal. Thanks Car Toys!

An honest and professional stereo shop! Selected a set of front & rear speakers, subwoofer and amplifier for install, during install my installer (Justin, the best!) called to let me know the weak speaker sound was not from old speakers, rather not enough power to the speakers (which the amplifier would correct). Sales staff are professional and knowledgeable, no hassle or pressure, installer did a very clean install and knew what he was doing! Great communication from all departments at sale, installation and follow-up. Definitely look forward to doing business with Cartoys in the future!

Brought in my Honda CRZ this week for a stereo upgrade and Travis was awesome to work with. He was attentive, honest, and worked with me to get the setup I wanted at a fair price, even working in discounts on certain products to replace others that were out of stock. It was important to me that I got my install done the same day, and Travis went the extra mile to source parts from neighboring stores to make it happen. After the install I noticed that one of the things I had requested had not been done, when I called Travis he immediately apologize for the oversight and offered to take care of me as soon as I can come in next. This is how customer service should look like, and I was happy to see this level of “mom and pop “service at a large chain franchise. Thanks for your honesty and friendly service Travis - CarToys has won all my future car accessory needs. I’ll be back tomorrow for a remote start install!

09/2021: Came in this weekend to check out some subwoofers and my man TRAVIS gave a few samples. In the end they were busy for the weekend but after I mentioned I could leave my car for the night they made things work out and I had my bass installed same day! Great customer service, Travis did a wonderful job getting my car back to me as soon as possible. I’ve come to this store for my pioneer touch screen and audio. Have always had a great time. Will come again for more noise soon.

Lance was my hero. My car had terrible tint from the previous owner. It was bubbled and baked on. It was a bear to remove. He didn't give up until he got the job done right. It looks amazing! 🤯😍🙏🏾

Thanks for the review Eddie. Lance sure went the extra mile and your car looks transformed!

Had sporadic static noise from radio speakers while radio was turned off. Ryan at Car Toys said he could pull the fuse on the radio to see if that solved the problem. Since we rarely use the radio, we chose that option. Radio fuse was pulled at no charge.

Remember when you have supplied a price quote and don't charge more than that even if the customer does not bring it up. I let it go. Texted price quote was $119.99. Was charged 159.00. On the other hand, fit my installation in immediately. Expertly and quickly done. Thanks for that. Overall good guys.

Prices are higher than any other place I looked but this store was close by and could get the job done within my timeframe. Store staff and installer did a good job, just about everyone was wearing a mask (per state guidelines), and I really like the Kenwood product I purchased. Don't know if I'd shop here again because of very high prices but everything else was satisfactory.
