:) I just got my second package from Tarantula Canada, containing 1 GBB sling and 1 G. pulchra sling. Amanda let me know yesterday that they were on their way, both arrived very well packed and are currently stretching their legs and hopefully starting to settle in.
Thanks again Amanda and Martin :)

Since my last post on here I've traded with Martin/Amanda and bought some spiders off them, needless to say everything went perfectly well (there were a couple DOA's in my order, but they were replaced readily.).

I (as always) highly recommend Martin and Amanda.

Tarantula Canada = Great People

Positive

We've dealt with Martin and Amanda on several occasions, purchasing animals as well as breeding loans. They are fantastic people to deal with and well deserve all the praise that they get here at home in Canada and internationally.

Keep up the great work guys.

I recently ordered a p. ornata, a. avic, and also got an l. parahybana from Martin and Amanda. At the time I ordered they were going to be heading to Toronto soon so they were able to meet me off the highway and give them to me there, hence no shipping costs. They are awesome people and extremmely friendly. Very proffessional and curteous. I would definately order from them again! Thanks guys!

Unfortunately I was not able to make it to the Mississauga Expo. But Martin and Amanda was very kind enough to meet up with me in Toronto before they headed to the Mississauga Expo. I bought my first Ts from them, B. Smithi and a G. Aureostriata plus they gave me 1 Lasiodora Parahybana freebie.

I look forward to doing business with them again.

Great experience

I just received my order today from Tarantula Canada, and wanted to say that from start to finish, the buying experience was the best I have had so far from any online dealer. I communicated entirely with Amanda, and she was extremely prompt and helpful in her responses, sent me photographs of specimens, and answered all of my numerous questions. On the shipping side, I was notified as to when the box would be sent, and again the morning that it was put in the mail. I received it as scheduled. The packing was great, and the animals were in excellent condition; also, there was a very notable freebie. All in all, top notch. Don't hesitate to do business with Amanda and Martin.

Another trade with martin and amanda equals another very satisfying experience. Fair trade (female for a female) and awesome packaging and shipping. Everything sent right when they said they would.

Always (and I mean ALWAYS) a pleasure doing business with the two of them.

Dealt with Amanda and Martin once again.
Always a pleasure dealing with them both.
As always professional as can be about everything concerning the transaction. Got a very nice King Baboon sling. I am very happy to obtain this little ball of fury. Also threw in a sweet freebie as always.

A little late in posting but had a positive experience with my purchase. I got a number of slings as well as some scorps. Everything arrived well and with great packaging, wouldn't hesitate to get more.

I purchased a beautiful G. pulchra sling from Martin and Amanda about a month ago and could not be more pleased with the transaction. Communication was top notch and everything was packed very well. A very nice freebie I might add. Will be purchasing more from them for a long time to come.

Overall very professional. Martin and Amanda have very indepth knowlege and experience with inverts which reflects on the condition of their animals. Great people to talk to. They stand by their policies and seem very determained to provide the best service possible. Absolutely 10/10!

A second excellent order

I just received my second order from Tarantula Canada, and again, cannot say enough positive things about the experience. Amanda is on top of communication and always very friendly and informative in her e-mails. The cold-weather shipping was great, affordably priced, and the spiders were again well fed and healthy looking. Definitely buy your spiders (and asundry inverts) from Amanda and Martin.

I ordered a Female B.vagans from Amanda and have to say she was very nice and knowledgeable. I was a bit concerned that the shipment came later than I expected (no fault of Tarantula Canada) but Amanda was able to track down my T and assured me that a 40 hour heat pack was used.

In the end a very healthy B. vagans arrived at my door step as well as a freebie.

Thank you Amanda and Tarantula Canada!:)

Hi!

I been buying tarantulas from Martin and Amanda for over a year now and all I can say is that they are very nice friendly couple, have the best customers service, selection and prices probably in north America(no joke).

For sure the main goal of having a business is to make money out of it but In there case I think the main goal is to promote the hobby as much as they can.

I would never hesitate to refer them to anyone.

I purchased all my spiders from Martin and Amanda.

I wasn't sure at first that spiders were the thing for me. Martin and Amanda invited me over to see their littles ones. They were very patient in answering all my zillion questions. Following my first visit, I have bought 6 animals from them and I sopke to Amanda today to plan my next purchase.

You guys are absolutely fantastic. I've recommended you to some friends and I know they won't be disapointed with your service!!!

See you soon!

Picked up a beautiful Euathlus Truculentus yesterday at the expo. The cool thing is that Amanda replaced the Cyriocosmus Elegans "Tobago" that I had. :worship:

Nothing but good to say about Martin & Amanda, ordered the packaged deal of 5 slings L.Hesperus and they doubled the order to 10 for the same price...
Shipping was fast packaging was great, thumbs up.
Highly recommended.

Today I received my order from Tarantula Canada and I am very pleased with the whole transaction.

I sent my order in on Monday, heard back from them, and paid the same day. The order was shipped Tuesday, from Montreal, and arrived today, Thursday, in Vancouver. It was well-packaged and, as a bonus, my order was doubled (two each of Lasiodora parahybana and Psalmopoeus irminia instead of one each) for free.

We exchanged e-mails several times throughout the ordering and shipping process, and replies were always prompt, courteous, and professional.

I highly recommend them!
