Protection Policies for Residential Long Distance Moves

Von Paris provides each residential long distance customer with the option to either purchase valuation protection (Maximum Value Protection) in the event of loss or damage, or accept the van line’s basic liability of .60 cents per pound (at no additional charge). Although there is no charge for the Basic Liability Protection, customers must select the Basic Liability Protection in the valuation section of the Bill of Lading. If unselected the valuation coverage defaults to the MVP (Maximum Value Protection) plan, which is a full replacement coverage.

When full replacement coverage is selected, the minimum value that can be declared by the customer must be equal to $6.00 per pound times the total weight of his /her shipment. An MVP chart actually determines the final cost of the residential moving valuation. Customers may declare a value higher than the minimum if they wish. You can discuss our protection policies with your Von Paris residential moving consultant.

Residential Long Distance Move: The Moving Basics

Before planning your Von Paris residential long distance move there are four main questions you need to consider. They will affect your costs and timing of the move.

  • How flexible are the moving dates?
  • How far are you moving?
  • How much (weight & volume) needs to be moved?
  • Will you pack your own boxes or do you want the Von Paris professional movers to pack and crate all your items?

What is the minimum mileage that constitutes a long distance move- more than 50…more than 100?

Any interstate move is considered a long distance move. The cost of a long distance move is not calculated by the hour. 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. However, other factors such as packing, unpacking, crating, problematic truck access, storage requirements and third party services, must all be factored into the final cost.

We work closely with each customer to provide as accurate an estimate as possible.
Ask your Von Paris Moving Consultant to explain all the options during your free In-Home Estimate visit.
