I would go into how horrible the move went even with the owner working, but given all that I have found out about the owner and his illegal moving company, I find it is more important to expose this fraudulent company and its criminal owner for what it is. so let me begin......

Budget movers in Palm Harbor Florida is not only an illegal moving company that is not licensed or insured. The owner Anthony J. Magazu a.k.a Tony Magazu is a recently released convicted felon with a record for multiple counts of possession of crack cocaine, and dealing in stolen property which probably came from the customer homes he moved. His record is much longer but I will get to that shortly

There is a legal "budget movers" but it is located in sarasota not in palm harbor. The estimate given to me showed a license number that came up expired and the moving company name was a different name altogether. [continued below]....
..... When asked where his office is located the owner said he does not have an office he works from home. That would be all well and good except I found out later that in Florida all moving companies are required to have an office.

Now back to the owners criminal record. Under Anthony j Magazu a.k.a Tony magazu you will find a criminal record that spans from New York to Florida. but since his record is to extensive to go into and all I am dealing with is Florida, I am placing a link to the criminal records site which shows his Florida record more in detail. (copy link below and paste in address bar) http://mugshots.com/search.html?q=Anthony%20J%20Magazu

My advice to anyone looking for a moving company. Do not use this company unless you do not care about your family or your personal information. One of his own workers who I happened to talk to at a store weeks later said he had to quit because of some of the things the owner was saying about young woman and some of the things he was asking him to do on the moves. This was horrifying to me especially given he is around peoples families all the time.

I did try and ask the ex-worker about what type of things but the worker did not want to come out and say anything specific. He did say that the owner Anthony J Magazu has been recently opening up a lot of new credit cards which should not be possible. I asked, ''what does that mean" and he said for me to take a guess.

Although this is a huge concern, since I have no real evidence for the criminal acts I can only caution those to not use him because he is not licensed or insured in the state of florida to provide moving services. This you can look up yourself at (www.800helpfla.com) click on (business/complaint lookup) then type in his info. You will see that no info will match up.

I have tried to notify the proper authorities about him and his company but there is not much they can do because they need a specific address to nab an unlicensed moving company. I know that sounds crazy but thats what the department of agriculture and consumer services said. I guess that is why there is so many of these illegal moving companies around Florida. All you have to do is not have an address. Can they make it any easier.

My advice is to not use this company at all. In fact if you know of anyone moving in the palm harbor area warn them about this company. Also, do your homework before booking with any moving company. Don't believe any company when they say they are licensed and insured. Check it yourself. Also look up the owners name. Make sure the people coming into your home are good people not drug addicts or convicted criminals who have just been released.
