Well, to everyones knowledge, crash toys or what used to be crash toys has gotten super dumb and over priced with all of their hidden fees, and RESERVES! but I was rolling around an idea and wondering if anyone here has a dealer registration or personal membership with them. A bike is ending tomorrow and there is a possibility I would like to place a bid on it...

I'm not planning on buying anything from them again. I bought a scooter from there for $475. After the buyers fee, tax, and title fee it ended up being $740 to get out of there.

That 55% on top of my bid.

I'm pretty hesitant, I had them calculate the fees for me yesterday depending on my maximum bid and it bumped it up about 250 more. Also I have to drive to get it which is another down side since it's not from stillwater. Also it has a reserve so I'm sure it won't be over the reserve anyways. That place got really uncool

its really bad. The only reference I could find to buyers fee on their page was a note that said you are responsible for finding out what the current fees are, but I never found the fees. I found out you can find them under the memebers section but even then its hard to locate. It appears to me the fees have gone up with each change of hands and now unless something goes super cheap it just isn't worth it.

No kidding. If they would have made the fees easier to locate I still may have bought the scooter but since I went in blind thinking I got a great deal, I'm not real pleased with how it turned out.

Crashed Toys Buyers Fees

just to be on the safe side, you should probably tack on another 5% as other fees...

You need a member login to follow that link.

The extra over the buyer fee is sales tax for not being a dealer and a $50 title fee

I assume this over with by now but if I remember correctly JoeGibs bought a bike from them that was significantly more damaged than the description. Not worth it unless yu can go personally evaluate it pre-purchase.

Bingo!

I bought a zx12r from the eldridge iowa location. Description claimed "complete front body damage" and went on to list all the plastics that were fubar. Fine, i dont give a damn, it was gonna be a naked and later stripped to use as a parts bike. well, after driving the 5 hours there and 5 hours back, i returned with a bike that was, well, junk. upon first inspection, i realized not only was the body damaged, the front wheel, forks, radiator, and the headers were all smashed to shit. they somehow pulled the wheel back out into place, either to make it roll, or to try and conceal the damage from looking at the pictures. after replacing the forks, wheel, radiator, and the full exhaust, i find out there's frame damage. ended up doing a complete frame swap.

and obviously crashed toys told me to piss in the wind

like dave said, unless you can personally go and look at that shit, dont buy it from any of these crashed websites.

Crashed Toys has gotten worse every time they change hands - I won't be renewing my membership again. I kept getting requests from them for my dealers license so I can bid on stuff after the most rtecent buyout. Let's see, You have my annual fee but now I can't bid because you changed the rules after the game started. Screw them
