    Just received my order today of two Mexican RedKnee Slings. The order was shipped promptly and packaged very well. Spiders arrived healthy and in great shape. Nothing but good things to say about Dean and NW Invertebrates.

    Dean gives 110% to make sure every thing goes smooth. There may be some that are as good, but none better! :clap:
  4. Positive!

    I bought two female tarantulas from Dean and the transaction went smoothly. Communication was quick and the Ts were well packed and arrived healthy and happy. Both are calm and beautiful, now exploring their new homes.

    Highly recommend! Thank you!:)

    I bought a 1/2" L. parahybana sling. Shipping was quick but the mailman left it outside in a plastic bag hanging from our mailbox when he was supposed to bring it up to the door...grr...but that's not NWI's fault. The important thing is that sling arrived alive and is doing well in its new home! Thanks Dean!

    Northwest Invertebrates is a fantastic company to do business with. Dean is a class act, friendly and reliable. I just got a fat 6.5+ inch female Chaco Golden Stripe that arrived from NW to SE (FL) health, safe and sound. I couldn't be happier. Great packing job. Buy with confidence.

    I completed a trade with Dean this week and it went very, as usual. Communication, packaging and ease of trade were hassle free. I would recommend Dean Pittman to anyone looking for some top quality inverts.

    Just want to say Dean is probably one of the NICEST dealers I have ever purchased from. Its been a couple years since I have bought from him thought. I once bought from him online and he was very helpful with all my questions. I also went down to Oregon for a reptile convention and told him I would be there for my work when I was working for a local pet store...he was more than friendly in person and on the pricing, and even through in a free sling with my purchase. he and his wife are very nice and a pleasure to purchase from. I would highly recommend buying from Dean.
  12. Thanks!

    I just received my first order from NWI today - a b. emilia, b. smithi, and a. "paysoni." I took a chance with priority mail since I'm in Oregon... worked well! Priority from Forest Grove is still overnight to Bend. Now I can spend that shipping money on more spiders.

    The little guys were as described and well packed. I didn't talk to Dean because I didn't have any questions, so can't comment on that - but from what I've read I know any questions would have been answered.

    Only disappointment: It would have been cool to get a freebie. The website doesn't advertise it, so it's totally fair, but when I bought from Swifts I got a freebie (of my choice) with only a $20 order, plus some pinhead crickets. I'll just have to have a bigger order next time, I guess.

    Meantime, I'll enjoy my growing collection. Thanks, Northwest Inverts!

  13. Follow up

    Just wanted to say I got a follow up PM from Dean explaining about the freebies... he doesn't give them out all the time because he's had people complain. How could you complain about a free T?!

    Anyway, it further solidifies what everyone else says about him - he's a great communicator! I publicly apologize for using the word "disappointment" in a review of Northwest Inverts. I will definitely use him in the future (as soon as my wife gets used to the idea of yet more tarantulas in our house).

    Thanks, Dean!

    Dean is a BIG HELP to me!

    I have dealt with Dean for TEN YEARS.. and I have been very busy growing all of my slings.. I use Dean for his free (spider) sexing service. (Don't get hilarious :)

    I mailed Dean FOUR moults this week, and....

    UNFORTUNATELY one of the PRIZES (G. Pulchra) of my collection is a BOY.. DARN DARN DARN, but that's not Dean's fault :)

    Dean attempted to sex it last year but the moult was torn. He said "probable male," that time.
    THIS year I recovered the moult ASAP.. the spider had been an ugly pre-moult brown for a long time so it was hard to catch. But I did, and now there's no more probablity. Boo Hoo. I placed an ad for him on another thread.

    ANYHOO, Dean is consistent and helpful to me :)

    In MY shop, an antique shop in Rockford IL, a lot of the people that come in would complain if you gave them ice water in hell.

    I bet Dean cares too much about his babies to not want them complained about.
  16. Dean made everything go extremely smoothly, and the B. albopilosum and B. smithi I ordered are some of the favorite T's I have in my collection. A great experience overall!

    Dean / NWI - more than positive

    Just received a M.balfouri from Dean in a trade.
    The deal & communication was smooth and easy, and I'd do it again any time without a doubt.
    Thanks, Dean!

    Got my T's in today. Everything was and went fine except for my Togo Starburst. I found a leg of his in the container he came in :( It wasn't Deans fault. It was the damn post office!!! He was a freebie so no biggie! I recommend this guy to anyone that wants 100% healthy and happy T's.
