I decided to upgrade my stereo in my 2008 Mustang I check with another stereo installer I felt they wanted too much. I went by Car Toys where I have bought other car stereo’s they gave me a good price and installed a new stereo the same day. I am like a kid with my new stereo, thank you .

Travis was amazing to deal with. Took time to come look at my truck and talk to me about my options. I had a new apple car play deck installed as well as a backup camera. I could not be happier with how it turned out and the staff was incredible. Highly recommend the Gateway Car Toys location.

This is one of the best helpful car toys I've ever been to recommend it to everybody's This car toys installed my stereo a few weeks back. I thought the stereo was bad and I was being kind of a jerk to people that work there and I would like to apologize publicly because you guys did a perfect install. It was the amp that was bad that I had installed from somebody else. I like to say this is one of the best car toys there is around. I recommend them to anybody

I just had a terrific sales and install yesterday, 6/20/22. First, Brad made the choices plain and technically sound for me in the showroom. He gave me demos, after asking what my preferences were, of every speaker, amp, and sub of my or his choice that might suit me and details when asked. He also adjusted everything at need regarding prices, equipment, install additions and removals...just everything! Brad also suggested things along the way making this probably the best sales experience I've ever had. Then there was Jake. I don't have room for everything to say about this installer. Jake spent time with me adding to the sales experience as well. He then spent the entire day on the installation, in my opinion, doing the best possible job on it. I witnessed his ability to get into places I couldn't get to without demolishing my dash, running wires nearly invisibly, popping door panels and dash mount covers professionally, and all of this with updates and information with a smile when asked. He also made a solo job of troubleshooting that i dont expect from many people when adjusting to an issue between the amp and sub. This young man has tremendous technical and physical talents as well as persistence and patience not expected in someone of his generation for the car audio install industry and deserves more props than I can give alone. Go see him at work and im sure you'll agree. Jake is the type of installer I'd want in my shop if I had one. Thanks for everything guys and keep up the great audio work!

The staff were super friendly and accommodating. I got a stereo/speaker change along with a rearview camera installed and it was done in four hours, which is important for me because I am out of town half of the week. There is not a lot to do in its locale, but this isn't a slight on the business. You can get an Uber/Lyft to Cascade Station for $9 in the morning and hang out there while you wait. Once again, excellent work and customer service! And big ups to Travis as well!

After my 1996 Subaru was vandalized, Car Toys put a great alarm system in my old classic car! I stopped by just recently, I had just purchased a second car a 2008 PT Cruiser, and the CD/radio player needed help. They pulled it apart and fixed it quickly, and didn't charge me. Very grateful. Thank you Car Toys!
