Local moving and storage has been a specialty at Von Paris starting back when the company first opened its doors in East Baltimore in 1892. Today, the company services local moving and storage needs of customers throughout Maryland, Delaware, Washington, DC and Virginia.

Whether you select Von Paris as your premier mover, select our white glove – fine art crating and transport services, utilize our portable storage program, or anything in between, we will help you plan, budget, and organize from start to finish.
We customize our services around the needs of our customers. That is why for over 123 years, more and more people continue to trust Von Paris for all their local residential moving, business moving, and storage needs.
Protection Policies for Residential Local Moves
Von Paris provides each customer with the option to either purchase valuation protection (Full Value Protection) in the event of loss or damage, or accept the company’s limited liability of .30 cents per pound (at no additional charge). Although there is no charge for the Basic Liability Protection, it must be selected in the valuation section of the Bill of Lading.
When full replacement coverage is selected, the minimum value that can be declared must be equal to $4.00 per pound times the total weight of your shipment. You may declare a higher value if you wish. You can discuss our protection policies with a Von Paris residential moving consultant.
Residential Local Move: The Moving Basics
Before planning your Von Paris residential local move there are four main questions you need to consider since they will affect your costs and timing.
Any move within Maryland is usually considered a local move.
Generally, local moving is performed on an hourly rate. Pricing options vary based on the type of move, the optional services requested, the distance, and the time of year. We work closely with each customer to provide as accurate an estimate as possible.
The estimated weight and size of the household belongings, as well as distance of the move are part of the formula to determine the estimated cost of the move. Stairs, elevators, long carries, packing, disassembly, reassembly of items, third party services, and home protection requirements must all be factored into the cost estimate and moving plan. Ask your Von Paris Moving Consultant to explain all the options during your free In-Home Estimate visit.
Self-Pack: You do all the packing, but we will share helpful packing tips and can provide you with all the packing materials and moving supplies such as boxes, newsprint, bubble wrap and tape at reasonable prices.
