    Hi, just received a shipment of slings today. In a complete moment of madness I decided to treat myself (big time!) On 3 x Thrigmopoeus psychedelicus which are very very expensive,....my bad but had a bit of an increase in wages at work so figured the increase for month one can be used without the need to break into my "normal" salary. That's how I justified it in my head anyway....LOL
    Back to the review......
    Spoke to a young man called Sam when placing the order. Always best to talk as you don't get the personal touch and trying to blag stuff when just adding to a shopping cart on line.
    Order was placed last Thursday just before an extended bank holiday in the UK. I phoned yesterday 29th March in the afternoon to make sure the order was being processed as money had yet to leave my account due to the bank holiday. Sam said he would post that afternoon and we discussed given the cost of the psychodelicus if he could sweeten the deal with some free slings.
    So at 9.32 am today I received a rather large box which contained loads of those packing peanut thingies, a heat mat and along with the psychodelicus x3, I also received the following slings..... EUTHALUS sp green AND red, Chaco golden knee and a Chile flame zebra. OK, so they are not the most expensive slings in the world (would have been approx £20-£25) based on the on-line cost but free is free.
    In summary:
    Excellent communications
    Excellent packing
    Excellent looking Ts
    Will use again.

    Sorry for such a long post btw.....lol

    All are now residing in their new homes as once settled, pictures will follow although they are tiny....lol and the psychodelicus are super super turbo charged fast!

    I have just received an order from TSS and as always great service, packaging and communication great. This time it wasn't a T but a healthy looking Peripatus sp. Velvet Worm.

    Nice T's guys.
    All of my T's came from TSS aswell, very good service and T's.
    They did screw one of my orderd up but they put it right straight away, and they let me keep the original (Wrong) T's they sent me. So I got 6 T's for the price of 3. Lol
