    I purchased some tarantulas from Phil at the spider shop a great guy, he posted them on Monday and they arrived today well packaged labelled on the outside so the postman knows that there is live specimen inside, all healthy very well packed individually I will definitely be returning to Phil for future purchases.

    I'm new to keep in tarantulas and Phil has been great. We have swapped messages back and to, he was asking how they are when they arrived and are they all healthy a real passionate guy for what he does.

    I give him 5 stars......

    Thank you for the review, I appreciate it :)
    Enjoyed chatting with you too and helping you choose some new Ts.
    The title of this review is spot on but I am not to be confused with the Spider Shop that is an on line business.

    I am just a hobbyist and have had the nickname "The Spider House" mainly from my family and neighbours, liked it, so I kept it. ha ha

    Thanks again @Mr.T and as I always say...enjoy your furry friends. :)

    Recently bought some absolute beauts from Spider [email protected] including a b.auratum and a black colour form p. murinus. Stunning specimens, perfectly packages and arrived within 24 hours of posting. It is quite obvious that Phil cares a great deal about his spiders and isn't just out to make a quick buck by selling slings to small to really be sold. I wouldn't hesitate to deal with him again. Thank you, Phil. It was a pleasure and I look forward to doing business with you again.

    A big thank you to @Phil. The Sider House for the lovely G Pulchra received this morning. He even included a complementary B albopolisum (nicuraguan) sling too. :D:D:D

    Both arrived safe & well. Both were full of life.

    :T::T::T:

    Thanks Phil.

    Delighted to receive today from Phil a HUGE Dolichothele diamantinensis sling and 2 Brachypelma albopilosum slings, both of which I ordered but Phil kindly only charged me for 1.

    The T's are perfect. He also managed to safely pack the diamantinensis in its own enclosure so I wouldn't have to rehouse immediately. He suggested this as he knows I'm a new keeper and this is a fast species, which I thought was awesome and thoughtful.

    Every bit of the transaction was great and his communication is faultless. Due to my limited availability re postal dates, he went out of his way to get them sent to me, which was so appreciated.:)

    Definitely a 5* seller, who knows and loves his T's. I'd give more stars if I could! If you buy from Phil you're in good hands.

    Thanks Phil :)
