Recently, our employees participated in Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery. It was a beautiful and somber day for our volunteers.
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:
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.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at JK Moving Services.
Per interview surveys used to assess intelligence, logic, behavior. Actual interview with CXO level disappointing! They were old fashioned in approach and method. HR and CEO impressive. Glad I didn't get an offer, would not have had support from president or vice.
