Pros - Great packaging, excellent prices and selection
Cons - None
I received my tarantulas today in perfectly healthy condition. The packaging looked like it could go through a tornado and be just fine. Great job, thanks again!
Pros - Great communication, awesome prices, healthy inverts (100% live arrival) and I received freebies!!!
I reached out to Dave about a few species of hissers my daughter and I were interested in and after talking with Dave I decided to buy them. I received everything I ordered (G. oblongonata, G. portentosa, and E. javanica) happy and healthy no casualties + extras of what I had ordered + an entirely extra species (E. chopardi) with several individuals!!! I am VERY happy with my transaction with Dave and I really look forward to ordering from him again in the future.
Pros - Healthy tarantulas with great packaging.
Cons - None.
I purchased three Brachypelma schroederi, and asked for Monday shipping to avoid possible weekend delay.
Today, I recieved all three right on time, in very healthy condition, along with one freebie Brachypelma vagans.
I have been looking for these slings for quite sometime, and I am just glad that I came across with this great dealer. Can’t be happier.
Pros - Excellent service and sale.
No-fuss purchase of a P. sazimai sling. The packaging was excellent and he threw in a B. vagans freebie! Both arrived in good health and I'd order from him again in a heartbeat.
Pros - Communication, Price, Shipping, Packaging, Specimen Quality, Unexpected Freebie, Seller’s Honesty
Cons - Absolutely None
I inquired about a certain specimen Dave had for sale a while back desiring a female. Dave was immediately up front and advised he believed all of his specimens were probably male. Honesty like that is generally unexpected in sales, especially when it would have been absolutely honest for him to say, “Hey, it’s a sling. I don’t know”. This situation impressed me so much, I kept an eye on The Invert Shop until I was in the market to buy.
When I wanted to snag my first Phormictopus specimen, a P. auratus, I saw Dave had some. The price was outstanding, so I ordered. I received tracking information that the sling was shipped the evening I ordered it. The sling arrived healthy, active, and larger than advertised. Additionally, I discovered a freebie B. vagans in the box. This was totally unexpected as I had not made a significant purchase as far as cost.
This guy is tremendous! Buy stuff from him, I will again.
Pros - Slings were larger than expected-included freebie Dubia Roaches and an extra sling-Great prices-outstanding packaging (triple boxed and 72 hr heat pack)
Cons - Absolutely nothing
Sent Dave an email with questions and received a response within 10 minutes. Dave shipped my order the very next day. Dave went out of his way to supply me with a variety of Dubia Roach sizes as my freebie. To my surprise he also included a 1 1/2” B. vegans sling as well. A species I did not own and considered ordering. I was concerned about the tarantulas because the temperatures were only in the 20’s the past few days. When they arrived they were triple boxed, insulated, had a 72 hr heat pack, and every tarantula and Dubia Roach was alive and well. I will definitely be purchasing from Dave and theinvertshop again.
Pros - Great and clear communication.
Fast and prompt payment.
A definite recommend! I logged onto AB and saw Dave's request to purchase said tarantula. The next time I logged into AB I had a payment for said tarantula. I look forward to future dealings with Dave.
Pros - Fast shipping service and communication was very professional.
Positive review for Dave!! I inquired about the t stirmi mm he posted on classified. He’s very fast to reply to my message and communication is perfect and on point. Ship the day I paid. Ohh Boy that was very fast shipping!! His packaging skill I very professional like any other dealer. Awesome guy to deal highly recomended. Would definetly do another trade in future. Know you’re in good hand when dealing with Dave! Thank you
