Really nothing but positive things to say about the transaction. Shipping went perfectly and communication was excellent through the whole process. Selection of species is hard to beat. Will be doing business again soon.
Please let me start by saying that I have plenty of experience purchasing from private vendors and I am not easy to please. In spite of that, I strongly believe Joe absolutely deserves every ounce of praise he has received on this platform. Joe delivered the highest level of customer experience and communication I've ever received from any market or industry... I wish he refinanced mortgages, sold insurance and repaired cars too! Selection was fantastic, prices were more than fair they were generous, packing was exceptional. Whole way through I wouldn't change a single thing, I'm a happy man with my spiders (who all arrived in perfect and lively condition) and would definitely recommend and reorder from him in the future. - Cheers
Another great buy from Joe! He found some super interesting amblypygids for me last minute and tacked it in on an order coming in, who else does that?! Always reachable and gets back to me with questions in a timely manner when I'm looking for something. Always a pleasure!
Another great purchase from Joe. Again he had exactly what i was looking for. He has great communication and responded quickly. He has great prices and some pretty great Ts! If you are local to SoCal definitely Check him out.
Joe's great. I bought my first tarantula from him, and I keep going back. Especially when I'm looking for something specific. Always professional, and willing to answer questions and concerns. Just an all around great guy in the hobby!
If are located in SoCal and looking for someone who knows the hobby, well look no further. Joe has a great selection of Ts to choose from. I purchased slings from Joe and right from the start great at communicating. He Is very knowledgeable about Ts and I will definitely be buying more often from Joe.
Another great purchase from Joe! I got a couple versicolor and a dwarf tarantula. Joe was quick to respond to texts and helped me pick a 3rd T to reach his minimum. He even texted while packing to ask if it was okay one was missing a leg. And sent a picture. I didn’t mind at all and I appreciated his honesty as I’ve had many people not say anything about a missing leg.
It’s been about a week and all are settled in and eating. The versicolors are bigger than I expected and just stunning. Really happy
joe was the only person in the states who had the sumatran tiger tarantulas. I had been looking for this species for a long time. I think I previously asked if he could get them. Well he got them and shipped them out ASAP. Definitely will be purchasing in the future.
An awesome transaction from Joe. He is very very responsive, Great selection and it was a smooth transaction. I'll definitely buy more tarantulas from this guy. I'll highly recommend him check out his awesome list, he'll never disappoint you. Again, Thank you Joe.
As always an excellent transaction with Joe! He goes out of his way to make you happy!! I placed my biggest order yet with him (13 T’s) and it was a smooth transition. He always has rare and hard to find T’s at great prices. Check his stock out and you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again Joe!
This chap and his T's are amazing. Packing was perfect for safe T's, all arrived healthy and spry (Really, the T. Blondi attacked my tweezers thinking they were food when unwrapping him), and the selection was phenomenal. Working with Joe was an absolute gift as he is not only a gem of a person, but goes above and beyond to assist and keep you informed during the transaction. I am extremely pleased with everything pertaining to this order and will not hesitate to work with this highly knowledgeable breeder again in the future for more spooders. Seldom do I give my word of confidence, but Joe undoubtedly earned this review, and I can not recommend him and his T's enough. Thank you, Joe, for the wonderful experience and feisty yet adorable T's
Pictures attached are the three Tarantulas I ordered that Joe took before securely packing and shipping them since I didn't think to snap a pic:
Really excited to find a species I’ve been looking for!
Would you purchase from again?
Patient with questions
Found a species I’ve been searching for! I’d definitely look through Joes list carefully as he has some amazing tarantulas and true spiders. It’s nice to find someone that carries rare true spiders!
Anyway, my order turned out fantastic. Shipping was fast and packaging perfect. Joe was really patient with me when I was concerned about an address formatting issue, which turned out to be nothing. He responds ASAP. This definitely won’t be my last purchase! Thanks Joe!!
I’ve seen a lot of Joe’s ads on here and he always has super rare (and understandably expensive) arachnids, and I finally caved when I saw something I’ve wanted for a long time. Joe responded fast to my inquiry and provided me with all of the necessary info on the spiders I was ordering. He shipped promptly and all of the spiders arrived alive and well packed. This is a very professional seller and I wouldn’t hesitate to order again.
Great packing job, included a freebie, packed VERY secure
Probably the best packed shipment I’ve ever received, at least in recent memory. Joe did a fantastic job shipping 7 inverts to me and was even nice enough to include a free A.Hentzi. Will absolutely buy from this seller again.
