My third order from Michael - for the first time, unfortunately, a tiny sling was DOA. It was promptly refunded without issue. Packing was excellent and all the rest very healthy. I always try to order from this seller, he is the best.
Great communication, great price, well started spiderlings
This is my first time buying from Inland Sea Exotics. I'm usually hesitant buying from huge vendors..couldn't have been more wrong when it comes to Inland Sea. I received a quick response after inquiring about some slings. Got a great deal, got a freebie. Packaging was top notch!! slings arrived healthy and active. I received some very well started slings, not always the case when buying tiny 2nd instar slings. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.
I placed my second order from Inland Sea this past weekend. The spiders were shipped the day after I placed the order. Everything was packaged well and arrived safely. The prices are unbeatable, and the spiders were on the larger side. Definitely recommended
I recently purchased 22 tarantulas from Inland Sea, all of which were packed securely, and all arrived alive and well. I'm very pleased with the transaction, and would not hesitate to order again. Thanks!
Sometimes it can be scary buying something from a complete stranger on the internet. You never know what sort of mess you might be getting yourself into.
I had absolutely nothing to worry about buying from Michael however. He was able to ship my order out very quickly, and I had my new spooder pals before I knew it. They were healthy, acclimated to their new enclosures very well, and he even gave me a freebie! Best day ever!
I would absolutely buy from Michael again and would encourage all the other kids on my block to due the same.
This was a very, very good purchase and all the T's came happy and healthy. If I had to say a negative, the paper towels in the largest vial were extremely hard to get out, but honestly, nothing that was a big deal. Great service!
Second time I've purchased from this vendor and again the service was excellent. Shipping was fantastic.. Packaging was excellent. Communication was quick and informative. Will not hesitate to purchase from again.
I am very pleased with my purchase! The seller definitely cares about the tarantulas they sell. The tarantula came packed tight with extra measures to make sure it didn't get hurt, and came quickly. The communication between me and the seller was great as well. Will definitely buy again!
First T order in 12 years and it couldn’t have gone better!
Would you purchase from again?
This was the first online tarantula order I’ve made in 12 years and I don’t recognize many of the dealers anymore. Inland Sea made the order quick and painless and my adorable albopilosum arrived happy and healthy. I would definitely order from them again!
excellent communication, never had to wait long for an answwer
quick shipping.. didn't have to wait for item to be mailed
classified was very clear and precisely written
great people to order from, I would advise new collectors (such as myself) to pay close attention to the size while ordering.
the classified was clearly written and I would order from them again..
which I probably will
I purchased three slings; all arrived wonderfully packaged and safe. He was very kind to hold my shipments until the weather cooperated and even reached out before I did with an available time! Great experience; I would purchase again.
I purchased 9 slings and was given about a 15 % discount. Shipping was delayed 4 days and thanks to the wonderful packaging they were able to survive not only the heat but the 6 trips between my city and the capital. Seller included a free cool pack for no extra charge. Messaged back extremely quickly. All around amazing experience, would absolutely buy again!
Excellent customer service, healthy spiders, great prices
Would you purchase from again?
I ordered 6 slings from Michael on September 1st 2020. He responded to all my emails very quickly and thoroughly, and helped me to select a date with optimal weather for shipping -- something that a bigger business we originally were looking at ordering from refused to do. The slings were packed well with a cool pack, since temps are near 90, and were well-protect. They all emerged healthy and vigorous.
I was really pleased with the selection and the prices and wanted even more species than what I got. I will definitely be a return customer.
Attached are a couple of photos of the Hapalopus sp & B. smithi I received.
Professional businessman (very appreciated in this hobby)
Stress free transactions
As a breeder I've been selling slings to ISE for several years now. Working with Michael has been a true pleasure - he is a prompt payer, responds quickly to your concerns or questions and is very reliable and trustworthy. If you're considering selling or buying from him, do not hesitate - you will be happy you did!
I emailed Michael after seeing his post about species availability and pricing, and he responded within about 20 minutes or so. I gave him my address so he could check the weather and give me shipping prices. I chose the overnight shipping method, sent him the payment over PayPal, he asked when I’d like it shipped, and it arrived the next morning after that. The packaging was very professional, maybe even extra cushiony. He even added a cool pack, as it has been very hot in Texas. My lil 1/2” L. Parahybana was in perfect condition and came out into its new home with no fuss. I will be ordering from Michael again!
