    Dollar Hobby website credibility

    Just saw an ad for DollarHobby.com, I was wondering if anyone has ever bought from them? Is it a legit site?

    I've ordered over $1000 worth of take off parts from them in the past 6 months.
    They have great customer service as well, one order was missing a part and they sent the item promptly no questions asked, and one order had Summit skidplates instead of slash skidplates , they sent out the slash skidplates right away and offered me the Summit skidplates for 60% off or they would mail me a return label, I opted to keep the summit skidplates since I own a summit.

    Just one thing for international customers, they ship DHL Global Mail, I strongly suggest to request DHL Expedite or USPS if you don't want to wait up to two months for your parts... Not their fault, international shipping went bad past 6 months..

    Please watch you language.

    If i lived in the US i'd buy from there all the time. Canadian shipping kinda sucks but if you need a new diff its less than 1/2 price from a hobby shop. I built 3 trucks getting most of the stock parts from DH.

    One time i ended up having a missing part it was 4 revo shocks with mounts and screws for $15 they did not hesitate to resend the missing parts.

    My favorite part about them is that they give you all of the extras! Screws, bearings, etc... not just the one PART you wanted. I.E. I've ordered the a-arms for my Summit and they came with the hub assembly, boots, screws and pins!

    The forum already filtered the word with a few ****, so, I think there's no need to play the bad cop here... Either way, if you think the opposite of heaven is bad word, that's fine, it's not for me...

    Funny thing, on post 14 "sucks" is allowed!

    believe it, they are new. all they do is buy a whole RTR and stripped it to sell as parts.

    for those of us that live in canada. when your ordered from them was the price you see with shipping the final price or did you get nailed for border fee's when the package arrived at your door?

    Border fees (customs taxes, import taxes, or what ever you call them) are always paid by the buyer...

    Yes they are always paid by the buyer. But if u use purolator the fees are always included in the shipping their are no surprises or extra's when it gets to the door. They are usually cheeper than anyone else as well. Not sure why more online places do not have that as a option.

    Shipping at checkout.
    Shipped direct to your door.
    There may be customs fees though... you would be international.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I like them, very good prices. Not sure if they have aftermarket parts but when you need a stock part they have amazing prices and ship USPS first class.

    I like using their eBay store.

    Buying from the website gives you an extra 5% off of the eBay price and they also give a volume shipping discount starting at 6 items.
    I just ordered parts to build an lcg slash and noticed the extra $4 off of shipping during final checkout.

    I buy all my Merv diffs from them which is a lot! The best part is for 12.99 plus shipping, I not only get the full ring, pinion and spider gears, I get the bulkhead, bearings, and cross screw for just about the same price of what my LHS sells just the ring gear for! Love Dollar Hobbyz!

    And i have bought twice. This part from after disassembly models, but for collect part home store for fast restore this store can be good case.
