While we don’t feel this way about our competitors, we certainly appreciate the recognition we receive from a variety of sources for our efforts in servicing our communities. Please indulge us as we proudly share a few of our most recent accolades.
The American Moving & Storage Association named JK Moving Services as the nation’s top independent moving company for 2016, honoring JK with the prestigious “Independent Mover of the Year” award. JK previously won the award in 2011.
The “Indy” recognizes the industry’s commitment to exceptional performance among independent movers not affiliated with a van line. Outstanding performance may be demonstrated through community involvement, customer service practices, innovative business methods, or employee relations.
In 2016, JK demonstrated such performance in a variety of ways:
- In May, more than 80 JK employees packed and sealed 10,152 meal bags for Stop Hunger Now, who distributed the meals to Mozambique, to support school feeding programs, orphanages, and crisis relief.
- In September, SmartCEO named JK one of Washington, D.C.’s Healthiest Companies, in recognition of JK helping employees maintain healthy lifestyles.
- In November, JK donated 87 pounds of Halloween candy to Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization that delivers care packages to military members worldwide.

- JK’s employees donated hundreds of gifts in December 2016 as part of the Loudoun County Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, benefiting 63 children.
