Pros - Everything
Cons - Nothing
Since I work so close to Eli824, we met up in a parking lot instead of dealing with FedEx/USPS. The transaction went smoothly. He provided me the plastic enclosure the T was in so no immediate rehouse was necessary. He even offered to show me how he sexes the T's which tells me I am dealing with a great seller who places customer service on top of his list. I will be keeping an eye on his inventory and will definitely be dealing with him again in the future.
Pros - Very honest, responds quickly, knowledgeable
Best dealer I have ever dealt with. Answers messages quickly and is a very nice guy. We had an issue with USPS and he went above and beyond to fix it. He even refunded some of the shipping even though it wasn't his fault. Highly recommend him. Just awesome
Pros - Integrity
Concern for both buyer and animals
Goes above and beyond
Straight Forward, No Hidden Tricks
Easy to deal with
Dealer with principles
Cons - None yet...
I got a variety of Ts from Eli over a few orders and he has time and time again proven himself as one of the best dealers out there. Not only are his descriptions of his Ts accurate, but he also includes full disclosure of what to expect. I received good quality Ts from him and he even goes as far as search for Ts you may be intersted in that he does not have on hand at the moment. His Ts come very well packed you can be sure your Ts are safe. He stands by his Ts and guarantees the Ts he sexed. He is willing to go over and beyond to satisfy his customers. He is very patient and quick to respond to questions and provides pictures of the actual Ts if you request it. He is truly a pleasure to deal with and a great asset to the hobby. I will definitely buy from again. So if you see his posts for available Ts, jump on it. You won't regret.
Pros - Good communication
Takes the time to build a relationship with customers
Cons - Non
I actually started my transaction with Elias a couple months back. My money situation wasn't in the best of places and he worked with me threw it all to make sure I got what I wanted. If anybody is looking for and honest, reputable and reliable supplier, Elias is your man. The two most important things to myself in transaction are communication and packaging,,, and Elias hits the nail on the head every time. Some of the best packaging I've seen. All in all will definitely be a return customer, and I will be sending all of my friends in his direction.
Pros - Sweet personality, quick to answer questions, great packing, prompt shipping, professionalism, integrity, quality
Cons - None!
One of the most wonderful people you could ever meet in the hobby! I received my package today from Elias. All of my tarantulas were very well packed and shipping was very prompt. Eli answered any and all questions I had and even took the time to sex some of the slings he sent me via microscope! He is very sweet and defines integrity to the fullest. I would highly recommend him to anyone in this hobby. He shows professionalism in every way possible and strives to reach the customers satisfaction. He stands by his word and guarantees sexes on specimens that he sells as "sexed". If you see something you like and Eli has it, jump on his list!!!! You won't find a better experience anywhere else and his prices are VERY competitive!!! Thank you, Eli.....Of course you know I'm gonna continue to hit you up....Lol.
He sold me great and high end Tarantula's , His packing is Unbelievable packing and safety for my high end Tarantula's. I wanted to buy more Tarantula's from him and he didn't recommend it for me and my life style. show's how he cares about the spider it self. I can't wait to buy more from him. Great guy to talk to and learn a lot from. Will never go to a pet shop again to buy anything. His prices are great and very affordable. He will return all calls as needed. Great business man for the hobby that i LOVE..I wish i can have him run my Business!
Pros - I'm in love with my new little spiders!
Great prices, fantastic communication and a flawless transaction.
Cons - None
I picked up two juvenile spiders - C. elegans and N. chromatus. Both spiders are beautiful and appear to be in excellent health. Eli824 was a pleasure to deal with. He held the spiders for me until I could make it down there to pick them up - and I was able to give the kids an afternoon at the beach while we were in the area! I would definitely buy from him again.
Pros - 1) Great communication!
2) Good prices!
3) Local pick up as suggested by seller in an effort to save me money on shipping.
4) Discount on Ts purchased.
5) Smooth Transaction.
The transaction was smooth from the word go! I actually failed to meet up on the agreed upon day on the heels of just bad time management, but Eli824 was more than accommodating/flexible the very next day agreed to meet the very next day, in the rain no less. The Ts were on point and as advertised. I look forward to future transactions and would definitely recommend!
Pros - Communication
Cons - Not a thing
I bought 4 slings from Eli(L. parahybana, A. geniculata, E. cyanognathus and P. sazimai) and the whole process was delightful. First off you don't have to worry about communication with this guy because he was easy to talk to and answered any questions very fast. His selection was very good and he will definitely work with you for Ts you have interest in.
After getting them selected the money was easy to send over Paypal. He was very accommodating with my time constraints as well and threw in a guaranteed arrive by time for no extra cost to me. When the they arrived(well within the time limit), the package was over the top great. A air cell wrapped large plastic cube with heat pack and styrofoam lining, foil, packing peanuts and air cell cushioning very well protected the 4 vials. The vials themselves were well packed with rolled moist towels that kept the tarantulas as snug as a...well...you know. Needless to say they were all alive and well.
All in all great transaction and I would recommend him to anyone.
Pros - Excellent communicator and full of integrity!
Dealing with Eli was straight to the point and friendly! He is a great communicator and one of the most genuine people I have had the chance to do transactions with in this hobby. I cannot recommend Eli enough! He has an excellent choice of Tarantulas for sale. You can tell he loves this hobby!
