Pros - Great prices. They had what I wanted and I got some freebies.
Cons - Had to wait. Nobody's fault
Everything was good. I would definitely recommend and buy from this seller again. Good prices and selection.
Pros - -Great Packaging
Cons - None
I made a large purchase from Miko with several different species, and he really delivered. After about 9 days, I received the Ts, and they were in great condition. He included a freebie of pretty much every sp. I ordered, and also included quite a few extra sp. that I didn't order. There was one problem, but Miko has done everything in his power to make it right. Overall, Miko is a great seller, and is very helpful and willing to accommodate. I look forward to making more purchases from him in the future!
Pros - Prompt communication
Large selection of Ts
Purchased a few hard to find T spp from Miko and it was a good experience buying from him... Since it's coming from overseas, the package arrived after 7 days from when it shipped and all Ts arrived in good condition except for 1 death which is not a big deal, not one of the spp I purchased, and was one of the freebies he included... Thanks again!
Pros - Prices, communication and freebies.
Cons - None! Will definitely do business again.
Prices are great and the animals came in tip top shape even with the long shipping period. He really knows how to ship spiders. Even threw in some high $$$ freebies.
I was skeptical ordering from Europe with over a week of transit time but figured I'd give it a shot because of the LAG... And, of course, was rather amazed when the juvenile GBB and P. auratus I ordered arrived safe and sound after 8 days in transit. The packaging was great, the communication was great, the prices were very reasonable, and (most importantly) the spiders arrived in great condition. I will order from Miko again.
Pros - Healthy animals arrived exactly as expected. Packaging was top notch. Great communication. Smooth transaction, especially for an importation.
Cons - Transit takes a long time, but that is not a problem with the seller, by any means! All spiders arrived healthy, so the transit time is clearly not an issue.
Miko is a great seller and I would recommend him without reservation to anyone considering purchasing from him. I ordered 40 Davus pentaloris slings from him and they all arrived in tip top condition. All slings dug deep burrows on the first day and half were feeding by the end of the second day. I have now had the spiders for three weeks and they are all growing rapidly. Miko even enclosed a few extra spiders because of my large order and there have been zero deaths!
Communication with Miko was very good. There were a few lapses during the course of the transaction (I had a complicated order), but he always picked up the thread again and everything proceeded without issue.
The spiders arrived after a long time in-transit (mail from Poland takes ~10 days), but the packaging was rock solid and easily survived the abuses of mail handlers across multiple countries, passing through customs without an issue. As mentioned above, all spiders were active and feeding upon arrival.
I am very pleased with this transaction and look forward to ordering more spiders from Miko in the future.
Pros - Great prices. Tremendous packing effort. H. Pulchripes arrived in great shape after 10 days. Honest, reliable dealer
Cons - International shipping so you have to wait awhile.
Received my sling in 10 days after purchase. Purchase was easy. Sling was healthy. Kick-butt prices. Many species offered. I thought communication was excellent. Would eagerly buy from Miko again.
Pros - Great prices, nice specimens, well packaged.
Cons - Shipping time was 11 days. Not unexpected coming from Poland to Texas, but be aware that shipping will take time.
This was a bit of a trial order since I'd never purchased from overseas and was wary of shipping time from Poland, so I kept the order small. Everything arrived in good shape and I won't hesitate to order again.
Pros - Freebies!
Healthy, active spiders.
Zero issues with purchase or shipping.
Cons - Communication was a bit slow, a few days or so between responses.
I am so happy with my new slings!! Shipping took two days shy of two weeks, which I expected with them coming from Poland. I ordered 18 slings of various species, and received 4 freebies, all 22 of which arrived alive, healthy, and active! I was a bit worried when they showed up in a large envelope, but the packaging was incredible and my worries were completely unfounded. The slings were each in their own tiny vial, all of which were in a larger vial wrapped in thick cotton wrapped in endless layers of newspaper wrapped in tape.
All in all, I am THRILLED with my purchase, and the only reason I wouldn't purchase from this seller again is because I was unaware of US laws regarding international import (which the seller clearly states in his ad to check, I just couldn't find the info). Otherwise, I would buy from him again in a heartbeat!
Pros - packaging was borderline overkill, 2 boxes inside the shipment container russian doll style with what seemed like a weeks worth of newspaper around each and then the vials were wrapped in a massive amount of cotton.
23 specimens, 22 being slings and all survived in the post no problem despite no heat pack.
price was about 20% of what i see them going for in the US, so, since there is no 10* option they get 5* there
Cons - communication was slightly stressful, couple days between communication, but t turned out alright in the end.
purchased N incei slings and a female from them at bellow rock bottom price and all arrived active and healthy.
