    I ordered from Kelly Swift and even with the huge tragedy he recently went through he was very prompt and sent me my Ts safe and sound, would highly recommend him.

    Swift's is great!

    I have gotten two separate orders from Kelly over the last few weeks having just returned to my interest in tarantulas after 25 years. Each order contained three slings and when I received them the packing was very well done and all spiderlings are doing very well. I can readily recommend buying from Kelly and if I ever get to live somewhere where I am not restricted on my number of T's he will be getting more business from me!

    Second time buying from Kelly. I made it a pain too, kept adding on spiders at the last minute haha. Well I got them all today, healthy and fast! Perfect just like the first time.

    100%, all healthy and well!

    I actually bought my little batch a week ago. I wanted to give them time to grow, expand, breathe, and do their thing before making a post (and, unfortunately, had a stressful weekend, making it harder to focus). But all of that said, all 4 of the little Ts ordered from Kelly are in GREAT condition, very healthy, and even though it took more time to receive ("next day" turned into "2 days"), they're ALL in top condition! Thanks, Mr. Swift!

    Just got my a. geniculata(BEAUTIFUL btw, I am in love), a. chalcodes, and e. campestratus today! All three are healthy, lovely little things. Even the feeders he sent along were in awesome shape! So happy with my early mother's day present! Lol, but seriously I will do business again with him and highly recommend him to my friends!

    My 3rd 100% Positive Review for Kelly Swift

    Sent in an order for 2 GBBs after losing one GBB sling from Kelly to "DKS"-like symptoms shortly after receiving. He threw in a replacement as well, even though it was alive on arrival and didn't show symptoms until 5 days after I got it. Really nice working with Kelly, he's always got your back!

    Gotta love those freebies too! :)

    I just got some slings from Kelly Swift-first time ordering a T online- and he was awesome! He was very quick to respond to my email (I sent it at some ungodly hour too) and was super friendly. I got my critters one day later and they (a G. pulchripes and A. brocklehursti) are just lovely. They came packed very snug and secure and even the crickets he sent along look fantastic. I will definitely be ordering from him again! Two thumbs up.

    My second transaction from Kelly. Very good! Unfortunately, the scorpion I wanted went from good to bad before shipping but he offered to make it right and he came through! Awesome packing job, communication and you gotta love that freebie! Thanks Kelly!

    I've ordered before from Kelly and it was always perfect. I recently ordered from him (2 spiderlings). Packing was perfect, and in perfect shape, well labeled as usual.I had learned this week of the tragic fire.

    In my email to him, I told him to keep my freebie and sell it. However, not only did he send me my order, provide TINY crickets, but he sent me 2 Freebies that weren't even on the freebie list! I was happy to get one, but TWO, man I didn't know what to say, but thanking him over and over. I was so surprised. Kelly is a great friend and a great businessman. He always finds a way to surprise me, be it via online ordering or when I'm at his booth at a reptile show. If you ever get a chance to be at a show where he will be, it's worth taking the time just to talk with him. 150% Positive!!!!

    I ordered from Kelly recently and despite all the cold and inclement weather, my 2 Avicularia braunshauseni, a species I rarely see, arrived on time and in great shape!! They have already munched on some tiny crickets he put in the shipment too!

    Just completed a trade with Kelly, everything arrived in great condition and on time. The packaging was great and the slings are bigger than I expected. Highly recommended

    I just recently ordered 5 slings from Kelly. Spiders were at the door a few minutes later it seemed! Seriously though, he shipped when he said he would and all the babies were packed carefully. They were all the advertised size or slightly bigger and in good shape. I would highly recommend anyone to Swift's Inverts.

    I ordered an E.cyanognathus and chose an OBT to be my freebie. Both spiders were shipped very quickly, and packed very well. Kelly also included a dozen or so crickets, neat!

    I will certainly order more spiders from Swifts Invertebrates.

    Fantastic!! 4 Stars

    Swift Inverts was awesome. These will be my first Ts (I bought one, and got a freebie, which is SOP), and I had a couple questions about how they handled the spiderling process. He answered my questions, both through email and phone, very quickly, professionally, and friendly. I would recommend to anyone.
    As a side note, they ship their spiderlings in damp papertowels, either overnight or 2 day, with crickets to feed on arrival and a generalized care sheet.

    Perfect as always

    Positive review again.

    Here was my order:
    (Euathlus sp. "Blue") 1.5"
    (Paraphysa Parvula) 3/4"
    (L. Parahybana) 1/4" *Freebie*

    All of them arrived in perfect condition. They were larger than expected and have had meals already. I had a quick question for Kelly and ended up talking to him for almost an hour. He is very personable and easy to talk to. He always has answers to any questions, and will bend over backwards to accommodate his customers. I will recommend buying from him over any other dealer. All my Ts have been purchased through him and pics can be viewed on mu profile if you would like to see the quality of his newly shipped Ts.
    Thanks again Kelly, and I look forward to doing business with you again soon.
    :laugh: :biggrin:

    Can't wait to order from Kelly again!

    Just got a couple of new slings from Kelly, and they look awesome! Packing was awesome, and the vile of little crix was a nice touch and did come in handy :) They both adjusted very quickly, and both took down a couple of those crix. Also got a S. mesaensis (scorpion) as a freebie. Amazing critter. And amazing freebie for my small order! ...Kelly was awesome about answering questions and addressing my concerns. He couldn't have been nicer :biggrin:

    The T's i got were a P. Regalis (MY FIRST POKIE :eek:) and two Euathlus sp. "yellows". (one for a friend)
    Yeah, i know... A Pokie and a Euathlus make quite the odd couple :4:

    In summary..
    Awesome T's, awesome guy, and awesome experience :clap:

    I just received my latest order from Kelly and as usual they arrived alive and healthy and ready for a new home. I have no reservations about ordering from Swifts again and would recommend him if asked.
