On a daily basis we come across a common dilemma of a person moving; “I can’t take “this” with me so if you can move it you can have it!” I think my first place was furnished all by items that were hand me downs; I loved it!
Here at JK we actually have a process for customers that wish to dispose of items. We have 2 charitable organizations ready to receive any items that can be re-used and/or sold. Our goal is to divert any items we can away from a landfill. Please keep this in mind when you are doing some spring cleaning or moving. JK has many partners that can assist with making sure that your unwanted items end up in a happy home.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore located in Purcellville, Virgina sells new and “gently used” home improvement items to the general public and contractors. These items are donated by local businesses such as JK Moving Services and are made available for sale at 50% to 90% below normal retail prices. This allows individuals to restore their home at a fraction of the cost it would normally take.

JK Moving Services also donates unwanted items to The Good Shepard Alliance. As described on their website, “The Good Shepherd Alliance is a Christian non-profit organization providing help and hope for the homeless and those in need through emergency and transitional housing and outreach services leading to self-sufficiency and self-worth.” Many items that still have a use and a value make their way into the homes of deserving families instead of the trash thanks to careful evaluation and a little extra effort.
