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!
Awesome smooth transaction, great communication from beginning to end, I am very much looking forward to doing future business with Michael.
Pros - Fast and Friendly responses
Cons - Zero
I’ve bought my first five tarantulas from InlandSea (with a sixth on the way) and could not be more pleased with his service. All arrived quickly, well packaged, and healthy. Highly recommended.
Pros - Great prices
Ordered multiple slings and juvies. Communication was good and everything arrived healthy.
I was especially impressed with the P. ecuadors. Great looking specimens and larger than advertised.
Pros - PRICE, Variety, Communication, Packing, Prompt
Wow, I should have ordered from Michael way earlier. Variety and prices are awesome! I could have saved a lot of $$$ had I purchased from him at an earlier date..
Michael was willing to pack and ship my order within 12 hours before he dropped it at the post office. In addition, I contacted him later that day to add more to my order, and he had no problem with it. I love the straws for the slings. Makes transferring them to their enclosures a lot easier . Would purchase from again!
Pros - Excellent communication. Great pricing and variety. Excellent Packing.
I am extremely happy with 4 healthy tarantulas I received. I will definitely shop with Inland Sea Exotics again.
Pros - Practically unbeatable prices, decent shipping rates, great packaging.
Cons - Some people may not like that he packs the tarantulas in little straws, but I don't mind myself.
I've ordered from Inland Sea twice now. Once in November and once a couple days ago. I ordered 5 tarantulas the first time, and 7 the second time. All spiders arrived in good condition, no issues with shipping. Most of the species I've bought from him are ones that I was shopping around for to find decent pricing for some time. Often his prices were significantly lower than other dealers I looked at.
Pros - Prompt communication and waited to ship until the weather was good.
Cons - Withheld two stars on packaging. There weren't very thick paper towels used to cushion the tarantula and she ended up outside of the paper towels. I understand sometimes tarantulas can get on the outside no matter how tightly you wrap them, but in this case I think the lack of good paper towel wrapping contributed to this.
Overall great transaction. The tarantula is beautiful and as described. She ate the day after shipping and is very healthy. Would purchase from this seller again.
Pros - Great packaging, fast shipping, and fantastic communication
I had a group of slings I wanted to offer up and seeing what he had to offer I talked to him about a trade. I shipped first since I was waiting on other slings even though he wanted to ship the ones he had for me on same date. I told him it was unnecessary and I waited until all would be shipped at once. Everything arrived perfectly from the pokies to the tiger rumps. Definitely doing future trades and purchases with inlandsea without hesitation.
Pros - Fast response, made any issues right and easy going
This transaction was an overall success and id love to purchase from him again sometime. He was swift to respond ti messages and when the crassipes arrived Doa he quickly replaced it.
