We only ship with FedEX Priority Overnight which allows the costumer to receive its package almost everywhere in the US the morning after the shipping (Usually Wednesday or Thursday morning). The shipping cost is $ 50.00 ($ 35.00 for Ohio)Any changes or cancellation can be notified at Notifications can be accepted by 12:00 AM EST the day before shipping. We cannot cancel or change an order on the day of the shipping.

Orders placed Wednesday through Monday in most cases will be assigned to the next week. Please make sure to be available to receive your order. If you are picking it up at a FedEx center, it is very important to have a valid ID with you.

Live Arrival Guarantee

We apply the live arrival guarantee on all animals shipped on a Next Day Delivery. This is void if no one is present to receive the package (even if the carrier is later or earlier than the time given to you.) or if the package is delayed due to any reason caused by the customer. Any delays in transit caused by the couriers will not affect the live arrival guarantee. If the destination is a FedEx center, ensure you can pick up your package within 2 hours of delivery.

After the delivery, try to unpack the spiders as soon after your package arrives and make sure to prepare its enclosure before unpacking it. Small spiders are extremely delicate and unpacking can be fatal - the best way is to let the spider come out on it own.  If your tarantula is not moving after unpacking do not assume it is dead. It may be molting or simply stressed from the trip and it should be left alone for at least 30 minutes to see if there are any changes. Make sure to let us know via email or on Facebook/Instagram.

In the unlikely event of any DOAs (Dead On arrival) the customer must notify us within 2 hours of delivery to claim a refund. After this period all claims are null and void. We require full color pictures the same day to back up your claim.  We may request that they be shipped back to us at our expense. After the inspection we will either replace it in your next order if still available or issue a refund for the value of your spider less shipping cost, whichever is preferred by the buyer (DOA doesn't apply for freebies).
