Residential Moving Services

 
Every family’s moving needs are unique, and no two household moves are the same. At Von Paris we can customize our moving services to meet your needs, schedule, and budget. Our local moving services come in all shapes and sizes as do our moving boxes and moving vans. Von Paris has the experience and expertise to guide you through the entire moving process.

Our experienced customer service team offers a full-range of services. We begin by listening and paying close attention to the requirements of the customer believing that no concern is too small nor request is too big.

A Von Paris moving consultant will perform an in home visual survey of your household goods and create a detailed list of items to be transported. The survey will also help us determine specific packing and special handling requirements of the more sensitive items that may require a little “extra special care” and attention.

Von Paris takes the guesswork out of how much your move will cost by providing a written moving estimate for all moving services pertaining to your unique move. Generally, local moving is performed on an hourly rate. On interstate consumer moves (from one state to another state), through our preferred van line partner NorthAmerican Van Lines, Von Paris can provide price certainty with a guaranteed price.

Pricing options very based on the type of move, the distance and the time of year. We work closely with each customer to provide as accurate an estimate as possible.

Why Many People Hire Professional Movers

While it may be enticing to attempt a “do-it-yourself” move to save some money, particularly if it is a local move, the time and effort involved may not be worth it. If you have a house full of furniture, large unwieldy items such as a piano or oversized book cases, a lot of small items to be packed in boxes or valuable items such as antiques, fragile art objects, etc. it is generally more practical to hire a professional moving company. Self-moves often take more time than having professional movers come in, pack up, load, and then transport all your belongings to the new home. Self-moves require finding a place where you can purchase all the necessary moving supplies, packing your boxes, reserving some type of rental moving truck, lugging all of your furniture and boxes to the rental van, loading, traveling the distance to the new location, unloading, and then carrying everything into the new place. A self-move can turn into an ordeal and ultimately not be worth the few dollars saved.

After considering all the above factors, hiring professional home movers may be the more cost-effective solution. The professional movers at Von Paris, with the skill and expertise learned through many years in the moving business, will efficiently handle the packing, loading, transporting and delivery of your household goods. Our personalized approach and attention to detail will make your move less stressful for you and your family.
