Dealing with Dean has been a fantastic experience for me all around. He is reliable, trustworthy, friendly and unbelievably reasonable!! Since I have been back in this hobby (since February 08) I have only two or three constants that I deal with and Dean is, and shall remain, one of them. I cannot praise him highly enough!! Thanks man! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
I bought and recieved an adult female P. Regalis from NWInverts earlier in the week. She was described as 6" + but stretched out is EASILY 7" and she is so beautiful. She is in GREAT shape. I know they took care of her well. Besides, she was packed to survive a nuclear explosion. Huge deli cup packed full of paper towels, inside of 2 boxes seperated with foam peanuts. Best packing job I've seen yet. I am very satisfied.
I don't know why I've never written a review for Dean. I've been doing business with him since March 2005 and every transaction has gone smoothly. I've bought, traded, sold and done breeding loans with him over the years and not only has he been great with every transaction, he is also available for questions when I was a newbie and had fears that my spiders weren't acting right. He's been very flexible with meeting up as well and I have been able to drop things off/pick things up at his house when that was more convenient than shipping. I would highly recommend dealing with him on any level.
This was my first purchase online,
my purchase: Heteroscodra 3/4 sling
Well packaged!! It was packed in a small box, that had newspaper filling, then a container with paper towels stuffed in it, then within that was my little sling, in a small container, filled with paper towel.
It was very cosy and obviously no room for hardcore damage.
My sling was very active and alive.
definately will do business with again!
Dean is great to deal with!!!!! I've done some breeding loans and some trading with him and he is wonderful!!
He is kind, understanding of scheduling conflicts (there were some), and he has beautiful spiders. His packing is out of this world!! What else can I say, buy from Dean you won't be sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I bought 8 b. smithi slings from N.W Inverts. Dean is a great guy to do business with I also currently have some desert hairy scorpions and p. irmirnia coming in from Dean next week. I highly reccomend him to anyone whos looking for quality specimens.
Last week I bought several Australian T's and a Suntiger from Dean. His service and communication was great. I didn't have to wonder where things were at. He also answered all my questions promptly. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again.
I ordered 5 T's from Dean one of which he had trouble getting a hold of at the last minute and replaced it with my choice of T's as well as offering two freebies with no hassles at all. Thanks to our wonderful post office, the package came beat to holy hades. All 5 T's were in pristine condition inside the torn up package. I will be doing repeat business with Dean based on his excellent attitude and packaging.
I just made a 2nd purchase (an Aphonopelma sp. paysoni 3+" female) from Dean and was once again very satisfied with his customer service. He helped me work out shipping for a day I was off work and she was well packed again. She arrived plump and very well cared for and is already becoming one of my favorite T's. She's always walking around, digging holes and moving around dirt ... she actually makes me laugh quite often. Also she's got the sweetest temperament, even nicer than my Chaco and Roseas. Buy from Dean and NWI with confidence. :clap: :worship:
To Wednesday: Why did you not contact me? When you placed the order on Nov 30 you requested the package to arrive on Dec 16 (tuesday) but you only paid for PRIORITY MAIL shipping. I sent you an email stating that I could not ship PRIORITY and have it arrive next day delivery to you. You did not respond to that email. I also sent you a follow up email and did not receive a response to that either. I can forward you those emails. Then today (the day you were wanting to receive your package) I get a paypal dispute from you. Not sure why that is, why didnt you just contact me? I have been trying to get ahold of you since you ordered to clear up the issue of the shipping method that you selected...If you are not happy I would have made it right with you and then some. I don't cheat people. You are welcome to have your money back if that's what you want.
