hey all, chatting to an friend of a friend, who said he purchased a few tarantula`s off a guy in the state`s who shipped his T`s to him, now i know ppl do send via a parcel service in the UK to others in the UK and a few to ppl in europe,but i just cant see anyone posting from the state`s to the UK? TAKE INTO CONCIDERATION THAT WE ALL RELISE HOW BAD SOME AIRLINES CAN BE,AND THEIR NOT SOMETHING YOU COULD PUT INSIDE A PADDED ENVELOPE ARE THEY?? SO MY QUESTION TO ALL YOU LOVELY ONLINE AMERICAN DEALERS IS SIMPLY ---- DO YOU OR DO YOU KNOW OF ANY DEALER THAT DOES POST ALL THE WAY TO US OVER HERE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM ??? :? :? :?

I'm from the UK, and you need a licence to import tarantulas from anywhere outside Europe, so you need to sort that out first.

As for your second message, then grow up :rolleyes:

Not everyone is on these boards 24/7 to answer questions, and not everyone on these boards is a dealer that ships outside of the US. Your post might have just gotten pushed off the page before someone who knew the answer saw it. You might be better off emailing an American dealer directly to see if they know the answer.

Also, insulting the entirety of the country you are seeking help from is probably not the best way to bump a post.

Well said.

uggy102,

I hope you started on the wrong foot just to catch attention and did not mean to disrespect everyone.

Now to answer your questions.

Yes, I think some dealers can ship to UK provided the sender and the recipient has a license.

If packed properly, they will survive the trip. The longest I know took 2 months. From my experience, the longest was 1 month. But, your package should arrive in 3-5 days.

Be fair Phil, this lad has acted like a poltroon and has nothing to be proud of.
With that sort of behaviour he will hopefully be ignored in the future.
Xenophobic tendencies are best left off these forums old chap.
Are you having a good Easter regardless?
