My tip for the unsuspecting and trusting individual looking for honest movers would be to look elsewhere for legitimate moving services. I hired Budget to move my furniture and personal items from Hoover to Vestavia and the whole experience left me more than underwhelmed. I was quoted a rate of $95 per hour for two men and told that the job could be completed within 3 hours. Two men showed up for the job, but one man did 90% of the work while the second one spent most of his time on his cell phone and waiting for the main mover to give him loads to put onto the truck. I thought that the 2-man rate guaranteed that 2 men would be moving my things simultaneously. Although the two men arrived at 2:45 pm and did not get their truck in place and unloaded until 2:50 pm, I was charged for the job starting promptly at 2:30pm which was factually impossible considering I did not arrive at the move site until 2:35 pm. Also, the main mover took a 8-10 minute restroom break and that time was not deducted from my bill. Had the two men actually worked in unison the whole time, I believe the job could have been completed in 3 hours or less, but with the additional 30 minutes added from the beginning, I ended up paying for a 4 hours move with 30 minutes return time for the truck to go 6 whole miles back to Budget's office. When I tried to call the owner for clarification upon completion of the job, he refused to answer my 3 calls, but he took the time to send me a text saying that he was in a meeting. This was not only highly suspicious, it was also highly unlikely considering he has only 2 full-time employees. What are the chances that he would be having a meeting with his two employees (one of which was the main one moving my things) promptly at 6:00 pm on a Friday before the 4th of July holiday?? Hmm. Any honest owner/sole proprietor with integrity in his/her business dealings would have had the gumption to return my call. His refusal to return my call elucidated what kind of business he was running. In short, I would not use this company or recommend them to any of my colleagues, family members or friends. These days, crooks seem to run in packs so watch out and guard your wallet!

Our move was trouble free, the gentlemen were kind and courteous, and I would recommend Budget Movers to any considering a move in Birmingham. They also charged significantly less money than othere were quoting. I saved so much on the move, I had money left over to buy drapes and sod for the front yard. I was pleased enought to recommend them to my mother, who had a pleasant experience also.

I don't remember this move, but sometimes we can't help it when people don't show up for work. That's why we give you a lower rate if you don't get as many men as you asked for. Thanks for feeding the man with the low blood sugar but they are allowed to take a lunch break every day and they will deduct it from your time. As far as bad attitudes, moving is very hard work and sometimes you may get someone with an attitude. Call me - Tony- and we will correct that problem or any other problem with our service you may have. Tony Coggins- the owner- 205-942-9477

1st mistake -- -I scheduled 3 movers & they showed up with 2, then the third guy finally got there
2nd mistake - -- that guy had blood sugar problems, so I had to feed the whole crew about 2 hours into it (what a waste of time)
3rd mistake - - we have sevreal injured piece of furniture, and the guys had bad attitudes about everything.

It was a very strange and unsettling experience. I would definitely not recommend anyone using the service.
