JK Moving Services – Why Work For Us?


Our philosophy is simple: We just want to help. It’s apparent in everything we do — in the way we treat our employees, the way we give back to the community, and in the way we do whatever it takes to make our customers lives easier.

As we see it, moving usually equates to stress. And we’re changing that with every move we make. No matter where your next move takes you, we want this transition to be a smooth one.

JK Moving Services, at-a-glance:

  • DC metropolitan area mover with 35+ years of experience
  • Largest independent mover in North America
  • Residential, commercial, international, government, move management, and archives divisions
  • Among the lowest claims ratio in the industry
  • Single point of contact managing your entire move
  • Full-time, fully trained crews, and move coordination teams
  • Mover of choice for Fortune 100 and 500 companies
  • Moved U.S. Presidents, dignitaries, and more
  • Suite of services before, during, and after your move
  • Extensive fleet of modern, GPS-enabled trucks
  • Proven network of suppliers
  • 500,000 square feet of secure, well-maintained storage space
  • State-of-the-art tracking and communication system
  • Aggressive recycle and reuse programs

We didn’t set out to be the largest privately owned moving and storage company in the area. It all started in Jim and Shirley Kuhn’s basement, when their son, Chuck, decided he didn’t want to just make money — he wanted to make a difference.

The enterprising 16-year-old started with just two employees, a truck, and a promise to provide clients with high-quality moving services at a great price. But as Chuck made more moves and met more clients, he quickly realized that the moving industry was in need of change. The industry had a bad reputation—and because people only moved about three times in their lives, there really wasn’t any incentive for change.

So Chuck decided to create JK Moving, a company comprised of more than just movers; he wanted move experts. Forget day laborers. JK started hiring full time employees who were passionate about helping others. JK aligned with the best organizations in the industry. And when there were no standards, JK created them. For example, JK built its own training facility, a two-story house complete with furniture, wallpaper, fixtures, carpet and more.

Today, JK Moving Services is the largest independent moving companies in North America. The company philosophy is simple: JK knows what matters most. You can see the philosophy at work in everything JK does, from the way in which it serves its customers — to the way in which the company operates.

    Director of Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at JK Moving Services (Orlando, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted to take an assessment test. After I completed the test I was informed my results were sent to the hiring team. A day later I was contact for an interview for a far lower position than I applied for. Operations Manager / Dispatch. I informed the GM who contacted me about he error. Tom was good about it. I followed up with HR to inform them that I was offered up to a position that I have 8 similar reporting to me and asked if I was still being considered for the proper position. I was then informed I didn't have the skills they were looking for in that position....Definitely some confusion.
