History of the Von Paris Family Business
The Von Paris story is a page out of Baltimore history as well as the history of the moving and storage industry. It begins in 1892 when a young German immigrant who, through his entrepreneurial spirit, began a small business to help people move their belongings as their jobs relocated around Baltimore. This business has endured and grown to become one of the few American companies that has experienced over 125 years of operations, growth, and success under one family’s ownership and management.
Since 1892, the name Von Paris has been synonymous with quality. We were one of the first moving and storage companies in the country to convert to a motorized fleet and were pioneers of long distance moving. From our beginning, Von Paris has been a family-owned and operated business. Today, third, fourth and fifth generation family members continue to provide outstanding service as “The Mover with the Gentle Touch.”
Our expansive facilities include five locations in the Baltimore-Washington region offering diversified transportation, storage and logistics services locally, regionally, across the nation and around the world.
The Von Paris commitment to excellence along with our total quality service is why we have been chosen to handle the corporate relocation needs for many Fortune 500 companies, two Presidents of the United States and many professional sports teams. It’s also why Von Paris has been named the official Mover of the Baltimore Orioles, the Baltimore Ravens and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
Through the vision and commitment of our founder and family, we have built a successful enterprise based on the tradition of service, quality and pride.
We welcome you to our family as a Von Paris customer.
