Pros - Communication, Ease of Transaction, Professionalism, Shipping, Packaging
Cons - None
This was a fantastic transaction all around - especially considering I am a first time buyer. I purchased a Chromatopelma cyanopubescens - a long time wish list pick. To clarify, I have had T's in the past, but I had purchased them through a pet store. I've always been scared to do business through the mail, but after this transaction, I can see how unfounded this was. I was initially impressed with Inland's reviews, but I was even more impressed with how the transaction went down. Not only was there a huge selection, they answered questions promptly before purchase. After exchanging a few messages, I made my purchase after receiving an invoice. I also received tracking information, and they upgraded the shipping for me to make sure that it would arrive before the weekend. When I opened the box I was amazed at the care and quality of the contents. A Styrofoam box surrounded plastic bags, which contained a deli container, which contained paper towels (moist), which contained a small vial with the sling. This thing could have traveled safely to the moon.
The sling is in great condition, and I am a very happy T owner once again. Thank you Inland Sea!
Pros - Reasonable prices, nice selection
Purchased 2 M. balfouri, L. violacepes, C. fimbriatus, C. huahini, and C. sp viet blue and all arrived healthy. Packaging was A+
Pros - -Great packaging
I purchased 3 B. vagans and 3 P. irminia slings from Michael, and everything was great. Great prices, great communication, and just an all around great guy.
Pros - Michael is fair and honest
Cons - Nada
His Ts are healthy, and he worked with me so much, even though it was hotter than hades' crotch where I'm at when he shipped. I honestly have yet to come across a more accommodating dealer. I would 100% recommend
Pros - Honest/Great communication/Helpful/Fast Payment!
Just completed a sale with Michael - sold him my recent sac of over 300 B. vagans. If you're looking to sell or purchase, he is a great guy to do business with. He is quick to respond to your questions and equally as quick to pay! He was very helpful with how to count and package my slings for safe shipping, since this was my first experience doing this. He also offers a fair price for your slings. If considering doing business with him, put your mind at ease and do it - you won't be disappointed!
Pros - Excellent prices for some very nice slings. Packaged well, 2 day ship from FL to IL.
I will be going here for future T purchases. Slings packaged very well in drinking straws, safe and sound. Excellent communication from the seller, was prompt and patient with my questions. The slings look good, healthy and energetic. Still doing great! This was my first sling purchase and I am happy to say it was a pleasant experience!
Pros - Prompt responses by email, shipped quickly, packed well
I ordered a 1" GBB and a 1/4" Mexican Red Knee. The seller got back to me quickly with an estimate of shipping costs. Payment was easy via PayPal. The package shipped Monday and arrived Wednesday with both spiders packed in plugged up drinking straws inside a deli cup. I would recommend this seller and will probably buy from them again.
Pros - Very easy to deal with, great packing, healthy Ts, good communication!
Cons - None!
I traded one of my MMs for 3 little slings. I got a Chromatopelma cyaneopubescebs, Hapalopus sp. Columbia, and a Psalmopoeus cambridgei! Both sides of the trade arrived well. They are goregous and healthy slings! Super happy with the trade.
H. sp. Columbia
Pros - Easy to communicate with. Seller was fast to get me a shipping estimate and then a Paypal invoice after I emailed in my order for 3 different T slings.
3 slings arrived in nice packaging:
1" B. albopilosum
1" L. parahybana
3/4" A. avicularia
All of them arrived in good shape through the 3-day shipping option. The B. albo was the biggest of the bunch, followed by the A. avic. They're all in good shape and eating pinheads. Seller was so quick to communicate with shipping estimate and paypal invoice. Shipping was 3-day USPS from FL to MN. They shipped out on a Monday and arrived on Thursday. Was happy that the temps we mild and they arrived totally perfect.
Michael answered all questions I had as a first time online buyer, and had great prices and a good deal on shipping. Both spiders arrived alive and are both very active. Packing was very clever but not hard to figure out and was very secure. 10/10 wonderful seller. Would recommend to other first-time-shippers.
