BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A trip to the Jefferson County Courthouse for a car tag can set people back a few hours.

"I got there at about 7:30 in the morning and finally got out at like 12:15," said Michael Ivey, who recently visited the office for a new car tag.

Long hours and wait times are problems already on Jefferson County's radar.

The county has plans for new computer software that should speed things up at the revenue department. In the meantime, David Bley says his new service can help people looking to save time.

"People will hire us as their personal assistant for the morning and our duty will be to go and wait in the line for them," Bley explained.

His company is called "Don't Wait 4 It." Here's how it works. For a fee, David or one of his employees will get to the courthouse at 6 a.m. to snag a spot at the very front. The client then arrives at the courthouse 7:45 a.m. just before doors open and people trade places.

"We will be there to guarantee you one of the top ten spaces," added Bley.

The service costs $30 and people like Ivey believes people will pay up.

"I would imagine he would do very well," Ivey said.
