Announcing the Commercial Move of the Quarter: Covington & Burling

Each quarter, JK Moving Services selects one of its commercial clients to be awarded the “Commercial Move of the Quarter.”

The honor recognizes and showcases outstanding commercial relocation projects. The award criteria are based on the scope and nature of the move, with an emphasis on projects that have unique components or that helped the client solve a challenge. The award is given to one commercial client each quarter.

JK is pleased to announce its Q4 2014 Commercial Move of the Quarter to Covington & Burling LLP.

“Covington’s relocation was the largest single commercial move that JK has managed since starting the division in 1996,” said Charles Kuhn, Founder, President and CEO, JK Moving Services. “With this award, we recognize and thank Covington & Burling for their trust and confidence in us.”

JK’s services included moving 1,100 employees – 850 in one weekend alone; relocating office contents, computers and furniture; PC Tech Services; and wire management services to Covington’s newly constructed space at CityCenterDC. JK also assisted 150 of the firm’s attorneys by delivering personal furniture, artwork, and other items from the original space to individual residences. JK dispatched employees, a fleet of trucks, and equipment nonstop for 48-hours to deliver the project within Covington’s required timeframe.

“JK was flexible to our changing needs. We were concerned about needing to move so many employees at one time, yet JK was able to pivot effortlessly. Also, with a myriad of clients around the globe counting on our attorneys and professional staff, we could not afford downtime,” said Sylvia Robbs, Director of Facilities for Covington’s D.C. office. “We were impressed by JK’s professionalism and ability to manage so many services, from traditional packing and storage to the residential deliveries for our partners and attorneys ─ their efficiency and resources created a seamless experience.”

Covington & Burling is the fourth winner of JK’s Commercial Move of the Quarter. The award has previously been given to Cvent, Global Impact and ASIWorks/PSI Family Services.

Please join us in congratulating Covington & Burling for being our Commercial Move of the Quarter.
