I have a small 7GB Sharepoint 2007 site
with no workflow/etc, basically it is just
a FILE storage server with a MS SQL backend
and some EXTERNAL user permissions.

Someone called just now stating they have
a TOOL that can automatically do the migration
for $5,000 which included updating SQL and
Windows Server using my licenses.

What migration tools/articles do you recommend ?

You probably don't need a tool with such a simple MOSS system.  There is an upgrade path for SharePoint, however it does involve upgrading to 2010 first, then upgrading that to 2013.  

See here:

If you are not comfortable then this is a sensible thing for a third part to help with.  You will need SharePoint admin skills etc.  If you have any customisations/webparts/workflows etc then migrating them is far more difficult than migrating content.
