Is it possible to change the length or size of the box where the first text is placed in \cvitem{this text is too long}{...}

I doesn't fit and it looks kinda stupid. I get this message:

Overfull \hbox (6.6563pt too wide) in paragraph at lines 102--102

So is it possible to add 6.6563pt points of lenght to the first box in \cvitems entry.

MWE

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv} 


\moderncvstyle{classic}                           
\moderncvcolor{blue}                               

\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

\name{John}{Doe}


\begin{document}
\section{Basic info}
\cvitem{this is fine}{derp}
\cvitem{verylongworddd}{Derpderpdep}
\end{document}

The second item is a bit too long and doesn't fit into the cvitem box. Can I make the word fit there and align better.

The width of the left column is stored in the parameter

\hintscolumnwidth

The width of the right column is computed using this one, so you can do

\documentclass[11pt,a4paper,sans]{moderncv}
\usepackage[scale=0.75]{geometry}

\moderncvstyle{classic}
\moderncvcolor{blue}

\addtolength{\hintscolumnwidth}{6.7pt}

\name{John}{Doe}


\begin{document}
\section{Basic info}
\cvitem{this is fine}{derp}
\cvitem{verylongworddd}{Derpderpdep}

\end{document}

Use a bit more than the maximum overfull you get during the previous run. Hopefully this won't ruin paragraphs in the right hand column.
