    Joined the forum a few days ago, after reading some of the posts I decided to buy two slings from @Phil The Spider House.
    They arrived this morning in perfect condition and I'm happy as Larry. Fantastic helpful seller

    Recently received 2x deliveries. 1 from Phil, and one from The Spider Shop. This is how they compared:

    Packaged with adequate packaging
    Phil - Yes
    TSS - Yes

    Spiders protected in smaller cases within the packaging
    Phil - Yes
    TSS - Yes

    Spiders arrived safe and well
    Phil - Yes
    TSS - Yes

    Heat Bags used
    Phil - Yes
    TSS - Yes

    Box Labelled Live Stock
    Phil - Yes
    TSS - No

    Package lined with extra Insulation to keep warmth in
    Phil - Yes
    TSS - No

    Package warm on arrival inside
    Phil - Yes (Even 6 hours after being opened)
    TSS - Barely

    Those 3x last points are great confidence that the T is going to arrive much happier, rather than being thrown around a van as postal service don't know to take care of package, or stick a heavy item on top of package, and that it will be kept warmer should the temperatures drop overnight. Our LP was very angry when unboxing, but that could just be the temperament of this species.

    Very happy with Phil's service and on going advice / knowledge.

    100% will use again when we're ready for our next T.
