Pros - Great species, great service!
Cons - None
While searching high and low for T seladonia, we discovered that Joe had them in the past so we sent a message inquiring. Joe responsed quickly and we were told he could get us some on his next import. These have been my wife's dream spider so we were pretty grateful to have found him.
Joe was great to work with all around. Great communication and very quick to answer any questions we had. Our initial order consisted of four Typochlaena seladonia, five Theraphosinae sp "Colombia" sp1, three Theraphosinae sp "Colombia" sp2, and one Sericopelma sp "chica".
There was a Fed Ex shipping delay somewhere along the way. Joe immediately filed a case and spent much time on the phone with them trying to iron it out. Sadly one of the T seladonia died after molting in transit. At no fault, Joe still gave us a Psalmopoeus victorii for our loss, which I thought was very generous of him. The box ended up arriving in 19 hours late. The box was still warm inside and packed very nicely. Things couldn't have been done better on Joe's end.
Since Joe was going to send the P victorii and we were so pleased with how everything turned out, we decided to place another order right away. we got two more Psalmopoeus victorii, three Psalmopoeus sp "midnight jade", two Hapalopus sp "Colombia" small, two Grammostola pulchra, two Idothele mira, and two Avicularia sp "Colombia". The second package arrived on time and was packed as perfectly as the first shipment. All came out happy, alive, and kickin'.
Joe knew how upset we were at the loss of the seladonia. A few days after receiving our second shipment, Joe came upon someone selling their T seladonia from the last import. He was on it from first thing in the morning to make sure we ended up with it and we couldn't be more grateful. He sent us a message letting us know about it and within a few hours he had all parties involved in a group text. Without Joe's help, we probably wouldn't have known the spider was even for sale.
Joe really went the extra mile to assure we were happy and has been one of the best sellers I've ever worked with. I would definitely purchase again from him and would quickly recommend him to anyone looking for cool new species. Great selection of spiders, excellent service all around, and a very good guy. You won't be disappointed.
Pros - Quick communication, fair price, perfect packing, great healthy livestock
Cons - None!
I bought 2 M. balfouri and 3 A. purpurea slings from Joe. I will definitely be buying from Joe again!--everything from quick initial response, to price and professionalism, to packing and livestock health are all A+++! This is a seller you can trust.
Pros - Excellent customer service!! Great communication!! Fantastic inventory!
Just received 3 Diversipes from Joe in great condition with excellent packaging.
The overnight shipment was delayed due to weather and Joe went out of his way to stay in contact with FedEx and myself in order to expedite the delivery. In fact, he knew the package was delayed before I did.
A true professional with top notch communication and quick shipping!
Pros - Packaged carefully and I had them in my house the next day
Cons - None.
The three slings I ordered came in looking active and healthy. I'll definitely be coming back for more.
Pros - The prices were great. Joe's communication was fantastic. My tarantulas were in great shape.
Cons - None. It was a perfect experience.
I contacted Joe about the P. auratus slings he had listed. and he got back to me super fast. His communication through the entire transaction was excellent; he even took the time to reach out when FedEx delayed the delivery of my package (I've NEVER had a dealer do that before!). My new acquisitions arrived safe and sound, looking active, plump and healthy. The packing was perfect, as evidenced by the fact that my packaged was stuck overnight in the snowy midwest, and they STILL arrived perfectly fine. I'd do business with Joe again in a heartbeat!
Pros - Great communication throughout the transaction, easy to work with.
Cons - None at all
I want to thank Joe for reaching out to me on a trade for my MM Grammostola iheringi. After negotiation on what I wanted from his sale list he, price matched another vendor and I picked 3 Holothele cf sericea slings for the MM. Due to conditions beyond our control I received one sling DOA on my end and the big beautiful MM lost a rear leg during transit.
After a lengthy phone conversation and several text messages we came to an agreeable solution that worked for both of us.
I just seen the video of the pairing with his female and the 7 legged MM got the job done successfully. I wish him the best, it would be good to see some US breed iheringi in the hobby. Maybe he will share the video?
Pros - He was respectable and informative I would highly recommend doing business with him
Cons - None what so ever !
I contacted joe and asked him a series of questions and not only did he answer every single one he was more then accommodating I found his service very professional I would definitely recommend him as a person to buy tarantulas from and on another note his tarantula he sold me is not only doing great but very healthy and strong
Pros - Fast and friendly service
Couldn't be happier
Cons - None what so ever
Was a pleasure to purchase from Joe, got my animals fast and his service was second to nobody. I would highly reccomend buying from him
Pros - Easy shipping
professional quality dealer
Cons - none
Buying from Mr. Rossi was quick and easy. He doesn't beat around the bush and is very professional. Shipping was smooth, the only delay was on my end on the purchase. The T arrived safe and sound and was packed snug as a bug in a rug.
Pros - Packing was excellent. I am also glad that the package had to be picked up from the post office, because it could be quite cold here. I will definitely buy again! Thanks Joe!
Cons - Nothing!
I purchased 2 GBB slings, 1 A. Diversipes and 1 A. metallica. Super happy with the pricing. I have been wanting these guys forever. The packing was also excellent.
