Budget Express Moving & Storage, Inc. Lancaster, CA

Postby JJR » Wed Jun 29, 2011 4:06 am

Does anyone know anything about Budget Express Moving & Storage, Inc. in Lancaster, CA? We are moving to Idaho soon and we need to choose a mover. They get an A+ from the BBB and the DOT only shows 2 complaints. There website is http://budgetexpress.us and their ID numbers are DOT# 1159748 MC#466131

I found a detailed complaint about a cracked HD tv on a move to Vegas. The guy did not buy extra insurance. Here is the link to that complaint.

Does anyone have any positive feedback to give? As I said, we are in So Cal and need to make a decision in the next 10 days and move by the middle of July.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciate.

I'm sure they've been discussed before, try searching their name in quotes.

The DOT has them.flagged for drug/alcohol possession/use while driving.

The bottom line is, you need to use a mover who will come to your house to see everything before giving you an estimate. By doing so, they're ensuring they're basing it off an accurate inventory seen by a trained professional. You do not want to use amover who expects you to fill out the cube sheet, because that most often leads to problems later. Did Budget Express come to your house?

1..NEVER PAY A MOVER A DEPOSIT FOR INTERSTATE MOVING! IT COULD BE THE START OF THE BIG SCAM
2. GO WITH IN HOME ESTIMATES ONLY.
3. DO NOT USE A BROKER.

Ahh, the old "We may be based in CA but because the move's interstate it doesn't matter that we're not licensed in CA" excuse.

A problem is that their name is so similar to other moving companies. I did not have the CPUC info, thanks for that.

We are having all movers come out to make the estimate. This is our first interstate move. We just always did it ourselves in the past, but going to Idaho from CA is to much.

The word "Budget" and the realization of high-quality relocation services do not walk hand-in-had through The Valley of Peace and Happiness.

In fact, it is often observed that moving companies with names which contain the text strings "Quality", "AAA", or "Budget" are in fact misnomers which suggest an interpretation of that which is known to be untrue.

Noblit's Rule #1: Never, EVER, name your moving company "AAA Quality Budget Movers" or God may punish you with a veritable plethora of bad JuJu.

Have you gotten quotes from other companies? I would look for a van line agent. Pretty sure there is a Mayflower agency in Santa Clarita that would service Lancaster.

We are getting quotes from AQMS Mayflower, NorthAmerican, Allied Beverly Hills Transfer, Farley Brothers & Andy's Transfer.

FYI - it isn't really effective to get quotes from multiple agents of the same van line. You mentioned Farley Brothers and Beverly Hills Transfer. They are both Allied. Then also Andy's Transfer is a North American Agent, plus you mentioned North American.

My suggestion would be to get three quotes, from 3 different van line's agents. It's also helpful to get them from local agents that you could go visit and buy some boxes and see their trucks and general operation.

Get an in home estimate from Lancaster Moving & Storage. They are our agent in that area. Say you were referred by Hidden Valley.
