  • Get to know Huge Mercedes, Moving Consultant to JK Moving Services.

  • Talking to several news outlets last week, Chuck Kuhn mentioned that he'd never seen the industry as busy as we are today - 44% increase in residential business volume during COVID in the summer months of 2020. People want to get out of congested areas/cities to move to more suburban/rural areas. It's a great time to work for JK!

JK Moving Services – Why Work With 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.

Inspired, 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at JK Moving Services (Washington, DC) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Brief, to the point, and affable. I thought the person conducting the interview was waiting on me to ask questions, so I took the liberty to ask a few of my own. He appreciated it, and we had a good conversation about what it takes to be a successful employee with JK Moving.
