I purchased a Poecilotheria rufilata and a Tityus stigmurus, and he offered me a freebie Tliltocatl albopilosus which I happily accepted, and all three of them were packed excellently and arrived safely, I will most likely buy from him again at some point in the future.
He was happy to discuss rare species and answer questions. Once we finalized, we arranged a good day to arrive. Everything went perfectly. The packaging was immaculate with a clever pill box to hold the slings. Top notch seller.
This was the second time I had ordered from Joe and I was very pleased with everything! He stayed in contact throughout the whole process. He gave me a great deal too. Sent me pictures of the tarantulas and sizes and the label. I had wanted to add another tarantula to my order and that went really easy! Shipping was very fast and packaged very well. Heat pack was included and still hot when I opened the boxAll slings arrived healthy and alive. I even got a freebie that I didn't have. If you're debating on ordering from him, don't! Just go for it because you won't be disappointed. This will not be my last time ordering from him too.
I’ve bought and traded 20+ T’s with Joe over the past six years and never had a problem. He’s always honest and up front about the transaction, follows through on what is promised, and he’s got people skills so he can communicate clearly through text, email, etc. My transactions have always been in person, so I have no experience with packing/shipping, but I have no reason to believe those transactions would be any different. Can’t give this dealer a higher recommendation—no reason to hesitate buying from him.
After reading all the positive reviews on Joe, I decided to finally pull the trigger on a few Ts he had in his stock that I couldn't find anywhere else. The communication during the process was nothing short of amazing. Far as shipping, everything arrived in perfect health and the spoods were bigger than expected. I will defintely be doing more business with Joe in the future.
The prices were very good and he gave me a freebie for driving 100 miles to pickup the speciments.
I highly recommend Joe! I just signed up for an account on Arachnoboards yesterday around 1-2 AM. I saw his post and I contacted him immediately due to the prices he was selling his Ts for. When I woke up in the morning, he already responded and we had planned to meetup. He's located in Temecula and I live in Reseda so it's really far. He told me that he would be willing to meetup in Menifee which is 30 mins away from him just to save 30 minutes of my time and I gladly accepted the offer. It's still far but 30 mins is 30 mins. LOL! When I got to the meeting place, he then showed me the Ts I bought from him (Theraphosa stirmi & Neoholothele incei gold). After checking, he gave me a freebie (Neoholothele incei olive) for the effort of driving 100 miles (this is 1 way and another 100 on the way home). I was surprised and so thankful! It's definitely worth the drive and would definitely buy another T in the future from him! Buy from Joe guys! Not to mention since I just started last November getting into the hobby, I have tons of questions for him and he answered them very patiently. You won't be disappointed!
I had heard nothing but good things about Joe Rossi and his selection for quite some time, I decided to give him a look and was not disappointed. I ordered two different species of Phormictopus, which I have not seen widely available. Joe was fast, efficient, and professional, my package was sent out the morning after purchase! Everything arrived healthy and in good condition! I will without a doubt be a repeat customer!
After harassing Joe about slings several times I finally pulled the trigger and purchased a handful. Communication was instantaneous and direct (text messaging). We chatted about his selection and he helped me settle on a couple animals he had. The prices were great too.
One of the animals I ordered had a bad molt and didn't make it prior to shipping (it happens, nobodies fault). Joe informed me right away and replaced with a higher value animal no questions asked--that's service.
Spending money online for animals is something you want to feel confident about. You want good service, outstanding communication, quality selection and animals, and good follow through. Joe get's an A+ for all of these. Feel good about ordering from one of the top vendors anywhere. Buy from Joe!
Everything! But I have to make note - They were on it every step of the way until the package was in my hands
Communication, packaging, Did I mention COMMUNICATION!
This is a wasted field for this sale!
This transaction was the best I've ever had. Was even talking to my pick up hub to make sure all was good. Did I mention we got around 6" of snow? Was not a problem. Heat pack was still warm. I'll stop here cuz I'm speechless at the quality of service and spiders. Thanks again!
Joe went above and beyond! I have had a rough few weeks and original planned to purchase tarantulas from him in November. However due to a family emergency about 15 minutes after I made contact with joe I message him letting him know I had to wait. During that time Joe kept in contact, not once asking about the transaction but he was asking about how my family member was that was sick. Well after 3 weeks finally I make the purchase and my package is delayed due to a major wreck just 2 exits from the FedEx hub. The road was shut down for 7 hours and the FedEx truck was caught in the traffic jam. Joe kept in contact with me and FedEx until I received the package and even messaged to make sure they were ok and to send condolences once my family member lost the battle with his illness. Also I received the slings in great condition and the price was far better than others. I highly recommend Joe. This was my first transaction with Joe but he treated me like a friend he had known for years.
Joe was very easy to deal with and had terrific communication. He even tossed in a freebie. He contacted me the day of the delivery just to ensure everything went okay. I would definitely recommend this seller and hope to do business with him again.
Amazing seller that checks in the day the spiders arrive as well.
Walked me through how to pick them up from the pickup location and checked back in to make sure they arrived in good condition.
Definitely the best seller I’ve had the pleasure of working with to date.
Met joe today and picked up a few rare stuff(o.honsej/d.rufoniger/p.hanumavilasumica) that I've been looking for some time now. He made sure all the slings are ok when he was showing it to me, he even hook me up with a freebie sling!
Overall, great deal. Definitely will come back and recommend it to my friends
