I received my a. avic slings and they were all packed well and doing great. He responded to e-mails promptly and kept me notified as to the status of the order. Another person that i would not hesitate to do business with again.

Received my A. avic spiderlings today and they were all in great shape. Garrick answered my emails promptly and even suggested a cheaper shipping method as we are only a few hours away from each other. He saved me $15, all my spiderlings made it here alive and kicking, and he even threw in a few extra freebies! A great guy and I'd definately do business with him again!!

Breeder Review: Positive Breed Loan Experience

We have to say thank you to Garrick for making this breed loan experience a nice experience. We have had loan problems in the past and not only did he keep us posted on progress but we have a living male P. irminia to boot. We have had males eaten in our personal past experiences so it was nice to get the male back. He is back in a new enclosure and has adjusted quite nicely. If anyone has considered doing a breed loan, Garrick is a straight up guy.

Garrick responded to my ad that I had running stating that I was looking for trades to my spiders. He offered his female P. irminia for my female A. geniculata. I accepted and he offered to send his irminia first. He did so and it came in very well packed. I sent mine the following Monday.

I definately recommend Garrick as somone to to a trade (or sale) with. I would definately keep him in mind for the future.

GARRICK - Garrick O'Dell

POSITIVE

I sent my mature male B. vagans to Garrick O'Dell in exchange for a trio of P. irminia slings. It was a positive experience from start to finish. Garrick is very professional in his dealings, sending prompt emails, shipping the slings on the day originally planned. The healthy, well-packed slings arrived in excellent shape. (And I'm truly amazed, USPS delivered them from Florida to Alaska overnight! WOW!) I wouldn't hesitate to deal with Garrick again, and give him the highest recommendation. An excellent trade in all respects. Thanks, Garrick!

These P. irminia are adorable, look like little bumblebees. Garrick, you did a great job as production manager on these cuties!) :D

Due to a bug in the forum software, some original reviews of Garrick had to be split off into their own thread. The review can be found here.

Thumbs up!

Positive

I sent Garrick a male C. brachycephalus on a 50/50 breeding loan agreement. His communication with me was amazing! He CONSISTENTLY kept me updated on the progress of the matings. Unfortunately, the male died of old age, and the female had an unscheduled molt after he died. Although circumstances did not warrant it, Garrick sent me two P. irminia slings to help me get over the loss of the male!

I would definitely recommend Garrick not only for breeding loans, but for puchases as well. The slings were packaged better than ANY I have ever received.

Got my spiders from Garrick today, a great experience all around. Communication was good, emails were returned promptly. The spiders were exactly as described and were feeding within an hour of getting here. Very professional packing too, I wouldn't hesitate to do business with Garrick again if he had something I wanted.

Garrick is such a wonderful person! I sent him my male G. rosea for a breeding loan, one of the females ended up nailing him in the heart and lungs and he ended up dying. Garrick felt so bad about it that he sent me a A.versicolor & P. irminia slings, what cute little buggers!

I highly recommend dealing with Garrick, great communication, always kept me updated. :D

Garrick is a great guy to work with. Polite and easy to deal with, he made the whole process a lot less difficult than it seems, even sent me a perfect example of how a T's deli-cup should be packed to keep the little guy safe. Good luck with the Regalis female, Garrick, and thanks for all your help and patience.

Super dude!

I purchased 10 P. Murinus slings from Garrick 2 weeks ago. Due to the hurricane he had to evacuate his family and was not able to get them shipped that week. Unfortunately for me this gave me the chance to plan 2 other shipments for a time slot the next week! Thanks to him I now have over 50 billion spiderlings running all over my room. :)

He ended up sending me 6 extra slings from a different breeding group!! They were packed amazingly well and I won't hesitate to order from him the next time I see something I want that he is selling.

Met Garrick face to face yesterday. Nice nice guy with lots of knowledge on the hobby. He's got a beautiful collection and I recommend buying from him if he's got a species you're looking for.

I ordered two P. irminia and two P. murinus from Garrick. They were sent in a timely manner, packed perfectly and he included an extra murinus. This was without a doubt the best experience that I have ever had ordering inverts online.

Thanks again G
