I ordered 1 T blondi Juvenile from Virginia Cheesemans online store Here and sent my card details to her via e-mail.

All correspondence was fast polite and helpful, even replying on her days off.

Spider arrived next day delivery in good sound packaging, the Blondi seems to be in perfect health and appears to have been well fed.

Very impressed and would highly recommend her to anyone.

I have so far received a juvenile B.emilia, an adult E.campestratus and a G.aureostriata sling. All orders were very fast and arrived when they were said to. They were all excellently packaged ensuring the safety of the spiders. I received promt responses from all emails I sent. Highly recommended to ANYONE in the UK!!

Quite, she actually has her own domain http://www.virginiacheeseman.co.uk/

(a bit easier to remember)

Also like to add, the thing I like about dealing with Virginia is that she keeps in contact with you, keeping you informed every step of the way, so you know exactly what is going on. And you feel happy to know you can email her at any time and get a quick response. (the longest I have waited was a day, when I mailed on her day off. She replied at 08:50am the next day. Reliable and trustworthy.

Very positive!

We ordered three slings from her, which she was happy to reserve us for over a week while we were travelling and unable to receive shipments. All my emails were answered promptly and with a lot of information. The spiders themselves were packed very well and were in excellent condition.

I would definitely recommed Virginia Cheeseman to everyone and will be ordering from her again.

I like virginia, I wouldn't hesitate to buy from her if she has what i want, i know i would get a quality well cared for spider. I'v been to virginia's house and seen her setup and i was most impressed :)

recently bought an A.moderatum, which arrived promptly and was very carefully packaged so as to not damage the spider. other spiders i have bought from her i collected.

overall VERY GOOD!

Ordered on 5th January 3 slings, she just shipped them to me on 12th January due to the weather in UK. At 14th january it was in portugal. From this day to 18th January is what you call... portugal... everything goes wrong/slow/etc here. So 2 days to get from england to portugal. 4 days to get from lisbon to where i live.. ( 3hour trip <).
During the process she was always answering my e-mails wich is great.

Packing was great, so the Ts

I reccomend everyone from Europe to buy from this dealer!

(Had to review this because there was nothing on this section that is a true review and it's really helpful)

Although it was last month, I ordered 2 slings and a juvenile. They were shipped on the 28th and arrived bright and early on th 31st due to the postal service here typically being rubbish. Virginia informed me that there would be a one day delay as it was a bank holiday. Great communication. All spiders arrived active and healthy. A+ packaging, couldn't have been happier.

I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the EU and I look forward to ordering from her in the future. :)

Just received an adult female H. gigas from Virginia. For £30, how could I resist? I got a prompt reply (as expected) when I asked what it's size was. Packaging was nice and tight, couldn't fault it. The T slightly dehydrated and lethargic from being in transit for 4 days but that was nothing she could help. Overall, I am very happy with my order, it's a pleasure to order from her. I will be ordering from her again.

I received 0.0.4 Hysterocrates gigas, 0.0.4 Heteroscodra maculata and 0.0.3 Heterometrus spinifer from Virginia and I was well impressed. 2 of the Ts were freebies which was a very nice gesture I thought. Packing was flawless again, heat pack was included. Excellent service and I look forward to ordering from her again. I would recommend her 100% to anyone. :)
