User Reviews item created by Austin S., Dec 28, 2015
Pros - Price, healthy animals, freebie, willing to negotiate, pick-up was smooth
Cons - none
Very happy with this purchase. Austin's prices were good to start with, and he also gave me a deal because I was buying multiple spiders. I preferred to drive out rather than have them shipped because of the unpredictability of the weather in this area. He had the spiders ready for me at the agreed time (including a freebie!) I would definitely recommend doing business with Austin.
Pros - Great communication, perfect packing, Good prices, and a nice freebie.
Austin and I recently agreed to a trade. From the beginning, he was very straightforward in what he wanted and offered his slings at a very fair trade value. His communication was great and the packing was perfect. All 21 slings arrived very healthy and active. Don't hesitate to purchase anything from Austin in the future, as he knows what he is doing.
Pros - Quality
A pleasure to do business with, good communication and excellent packaging! My adorable Aphonopelma moderatum slings arrived snugly packaged and are now exploring their new homes. Congratulations to Austin for breeding this lovely species!
Pros - Communication with Austin was superb, packaging was perfect, and timing was well considered due to the weather.
Ordered a fairly expensive order from Austin last week and just arrived this morning. Packaging was flawless and you couldn't ask for better communication. Safety was clearly a concern, as consideration was taken on what day to ship to best beat the heat and a cooling pack was included in the package.
Most important thing for a dealer to have is communication, and Austin has it down.
Pros - Packing was top notch and the Ts were lively and healthy upon unpacking.
Cons - No cons!
This was my first time doing business with someone on the boards and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I'll definitely be looking to trade/buy from Austin again.
Pros - Meticulous wrapping of each tarantula ensured they arrived alive and unspoiled. He also packed in a heating pad to ensure they shipped overnight comfortably during the cold season. Great job!
Cons - None
I'm very pleased with this purchase, as it is my first, I have no means of comparison, however, I will definitely be looking forward to purchasing more tarantulas from Austin! He takes great care and puts a lot effort into ensuring each tarantula will be shipped with their safety in mind. The prices were fair and comparable to other sellers, or better! They arrived exactly on time and he was able to provide a tracking number immediately after turning the package over to FedEx.
Thank you, again!
Pros - Fast shipping, great communication, and professional packaging.
Cons - NONE
Austin and I came to an agreed trade and everything went as smooth as possible. He did exactly what we agreed on and went above and beyond to ensure that both our specimens arrived alive and well! Mine came super fast, was healthy, and packed to ensure a safe trip. Austin is someone I will continue to work with/buy from in the future!
Pros - Fast, friendly and helpful
Austin was helpful and knowledgeable. I had a zillion questiom he was very patient abou answering, even though I am sure I asked a few repeatedly. Provided the tracking numver right away and when the spiders arrived they were secure and comfortable both settled in right away, a very healthy female I. mira and healthy female A. hentzi
I would definitely buy from Austin again
Pros - Helpful
Shipped with obvious care
Austin sold me 2 captive bred mature female Aphonopelma hentzi and threw in a mature male to boot. He patiently answered all my noob questions with detail and a sense of humor.
Couldn't have possibly gotten things set up here without his help. They arrived overnight SOOO carefully shipped and in perfect condition. Further, he's continued to provide priceless counsel post arrival. Great seller, great resource, great guy!
Pros - Great communication, immediate payment (shipping label)
Shipped out a MM GBB to Austin and the transaction was silky smooth.. His communication before and after the transaction has been great.. I look forward to any future projects or sales from him in the future..
