    Pros - Tarantula as advertised, great communication, fast/prompt shipping, awesome packing!
    Cons - Absolutely none!
    First off it was a pleasure doing business with John2097.
    Facts:
    1) Great correspondence/communication from the get go.
    2) Tarantula was shipped and arrived as discussed (e.g.: prompt shipping), seller offered modes/options.
    3) Superb packing of the tarantula itself and the innards of the box and the included heat pack.
    4) And the kicker.........
    A freebie C.kaeng krachan was included, ironically a species of tarantula that I've been looking to purchase since getting heavy into Chilobrachys of late. Huge shout out to John, Thanks!
    A definite recommend!

    Pros - Quick to ship and finalize an order.
    Cons - None.
    As per our ad on in the classifieds we were looking to add a good number of breeding females into our stock. John sent us a message with a list of females he had available. We purchased nearly all of them. The packaging was solid, very firm, didn't allow the spiders to possibly wiggle their way out. He included a heat pack. Also insulated the box. The best part about the transaction is how quick he was to respond once the conversation began, which is something that we appreciate when moving large amounts of money. Would purchase from John again.

    John has always given me the best possible service, his prices are always pleasantly surprising, his communication is great, and he does business just the way I like. He ships very quickly after you've ordered and ships well, the packaging is always tight and temperature controlled great, I.e. heat pack. This was not my first order and will not be my last.

    Pros - Responds in a timely fashion and is knowledgeable and helpful all around.
    Cons - No cons.
    I made my purchase while Ohio was insanely cold and he was nice enough to hold the t's for me until the weather got better. Easy transaction all around, good prices and variety, John is knowledgeable about the species he deals with and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him.

    Pros - Variety, packaging, communication, promptness, prices
    I purchased several B. albiceps slings from John along with two freebies! They all arrived real plump and healthy today.
    Everything was just excellent. It was so thoughtful that he asked if I was OK with a certain species as a freebie. I was surprised he was selling B. albiceps slings at such a low price, considering they are perfectly started and how uncommon and beautiful this species is.
    Aside from a local meet up purchase, John is the first person that I’ve purchased tarantulas from Arachnoboards. His packaging is superb! I was surprised that there wasn’t a heat pack in the box, but rest assured the way tarantulas were packed made up for it. Definitely will purchase from John again.

    Pros - Perfect packing job! USPS decided to give the package an extra couple days tour of the country and the packing saved them.
    Extras! Ordered 3 P. ornate and got 4 and all arrived safely despite the USPS.
    Great Communication from John.
    Cons - None. T's were a little chilled after the extended trip but came out OK.
    T's were of really nice size and price was great!

    Will not hesitate to buy from John2097 again. I'll just make sure I pay the extra for overnight shipping! I trust John, but not the USPS.
