  3. Great service from Paul @ Petcenterusa.net

    I ordered a P. Metallica from Paul last week. A few pluses I noticed were the actual in-stock number is correct, unlike a lot of other dealers I've seen online who tell me they are out after I already place my order. Paul was patient enough to hold my sling for a few days until I got back from Kansas and home to be there when it arrived. He also was patient enough to let me sort out some issues I was having with my paypal account when we decided to upgrade to overnight shipping. All in all, I will be a repeat customer. I just got my sling in this morning, healthy as could be!

    I will also add that he had the cheapest price on the internet that I could find. Especially since out of 10 dealers, he's the only one who had the T I was after.

    Paul is one of the nicest dealers I've had the pleasure to deal with. He always responds to emails in a timely fashion and gives you his phone # if you any questions in regards to your order or husbandry of a specific tarantula you might be interested in purchasing from him. I received a package the other day that was expertly packed and I was very pleased with the overall transaction. Here is what I added to the collection. Some I already have and some new....

    (1) Acanthoscurria geniculata
    (3) Acanthoscurria brocklehursti
    (2) Ceratogyrus darlingi
    (3) Ceratogyrus marshalli
    (2) Cyclosternum fasciatum
    (2) Hapalopus sp.Colombia Lg
    (2) Haplopelma hainanum
    (2) Selenocosmia aruana

    One of the S. aruana was a freebie with my order. Thanks Paul and I hope to do business with you soon!

    A positive ++++ review for Paul Becker at petcenterusa.net. Packing and service was excellent as always, all arrived alive and well. He even threw in a freebie. It's my 5th time purchasing from him, good guy.

    Positive! I ordered 5 <1" slings. Communication was responsive and informative. Packing was perfect, and the prices were a bit less than average. All the slings are healthy and hungry!

    Positive ++++ review once again for Paul Becker at petcenterusa.net. When I made my purchase, he was hesitant to ship out due to the cold weather. Nevertheless, all arrived alive and well from his excellent packing. Spoke to him several times over the phone. Even threw in a freebie.

    Just got (3) juvies today from Paul. They were perfectly packed with all the essentials (thick styrafoam, long-acting heat pack, and tight newspaper wrap.) After my disaster with a DOA shipment from a forum seller, I was a little nervous going into the deep end again. However, I worried needlessly. I've ordered from Paul many times and all his shipments have been perfect. Very pleased! Will definitely do business again. Thanks for your great service.

    I recently purchased several tarantulas from Paul. His communication was excellent, and he was very friendly throughout the transaction (which I thought was a nice touch). I was also very pleased with his prices, which were much lower than I had expected to pay. My spiders were expertly packed and arrived healthy and in very good shape. All have been rehoused and have eaten. I will definitely be ordering from him again in the future!

    I just placed my first order with Paul on February 21, 2015. Thanks to the overwhelming amount of positive reviews on here I knew I was in good hands. I ordered 11 tarantulas in total:

    Acanthoscurria geniculata
    Brachypelma albiceps
    Brachypelma albopilosum
    Brachypelma emilia
    Brachypelma smithi
    Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens
    Grammastola iheringi
    Lasiodora parahybana
    Pelinobius muticus
    Poecilotheria metallica

    And as a freebie I got a Pterinopelma sazimai. Immediately I started receiving e-mails from Paul, not only thanking me for my order but also keeping me updated on the progress. Everything was shipped out on the 23rd and I anxiously awaited their arrival the following morning. I started to grow concerned when at 12 noon they had not shown up and according to the FedEx tracking, they got delayed in Tennessee, probably due to weather. Paul was great with again staying in touch with me assuring me that it was all going to be ok. When the box arrived the following day, the heat pack was still quite warm and little by little my new charges would make their way out of their really nicely packed vials into their new homes...all but three. Unfortunately the albopilosum, smithi and parahybana were not so lucky. Considering the weather that these guys went through to get here I was actually very happy that there were only three casualties. Again, Paul was great being very apologetic, even though it was in no way his fault, and he immediately refunded me for the amount of the DOA's. I really appreciated this as another company I bought from recently issued me a credit instead, which means I have to place another order with them to get what is owed to me and at the present time, they have nothing of interest to me. Paul is now my number one tarantula supplier and I look very much to doing business with him in the very near future! I have dealt with many dealers over the years and he is by far the best!

    I opened my package from pet center USA and it was packaged perfect. I've ordered from Paul before and just like last time everything was perfect and all were alive. He was available from start to finish. I couldn't recommend him enough.

    Last friday I received a package of seven tarantulas from Paul, all of which were in tip top condition. The packing was very secure in the vials; I can't imagine a safer shipping environment for the spiders. 100% positive, plan to do business with again.

    What can i say, 100% all around. Got back to me within minutes of my first email regarding a payment question. 2 P. Metallica's at $70 apiece(amazing price). He includes freebie's with your order and i happen to see a T that wasnt listed on the freebie list but was around the same price as the freebie and he had no problem switching it out. Constant email updates through out the whole process. Both the Gooty's and the N.Chromatus are thriving. Will be using him again.
