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
I highly recommend Austin for anyone that is looking for a wonderful looking T! He stayed very professional and polite as well as kept in contact right up to and after delivery of the T. Austin truly cares about what he does and does not take any short cuts. Shipping was through FedEx overnight and the packing was one of the best I have received, you could tell he took his time with every step. I will defiantly be contacting him for more of his wonderful arachnids in the future. Great hobbyist and asset to us all.
Pros - Healthy animal.
Austin is a great guy to work with. He maintains communication and ships quickly. His prices are reasonable, and I get healthy animals.
Pros - Fast communication, Fast transaction. Top-notch packing. The male was in good condition upon arrival.
Everything went smooth as glass, no hold up or delays. I would definitely buy from Austin again. Don't hesitate about purchasing a T from Austin, you are in good hands an so is the tarantula.
Pros - Very professional and an awesome breeder!!
Cons - none whatsoever buy with confidence
On September 1st 2016 I received my end of a trade and purchase with Austin. I sent him a much needed mature male Avicularia metallica in return for ten spiderlings. Five GBB's and five Euathlus sp "Blue" as well as the extra 5 Euathlus sp "Blue' slings I paid for. All were packaged very well and arrived in perfect health. cant wait for the tiny slings to grow in my care.
I only regret not having more monies to purchase some of the other great species he is/has bred. I'm looking forward to seeing my MM's genes being passed on to further his species.
I can only wish Austin good luck in his breeding of all the wonderful tarantulas in his care.
Thanks much Austin!!
