Get to Know Eric Vislay, Move Consultant for JK’s Household Goods Division, Virginia

It was the summer of 1991, when Eric Vislay made his first foray into the moving industry working for a mover in Alexandria, VA while still in college. “I liked meeting different people, seeing different homes and neighborhoods while on the job. I liked the variety and the flexibility of the schedule.” Eric’s father gave him great advice during those summers in college: “Working for a solid, top-notch, and expanding moving company in Washington, DC, a transient city where there will always be turnover, it could be a great career choice.” That advice stayed with him, reinforcing his decision to […]

Self Dispatching at JK Moving

New Crew Self-Dispatching Process Is Three Times Faster & Maximizes Efficiency

There’s a lot of value in being consistent.  For more than 35 years, JK dispatched crews the exact same way.

Then the Dispatch team prepared what we call “the batch” paperwork. The challenge? This is a lot of paper…a whole lot.  So, being mindful of environmental conservation, JK shifted course to a different direction. JK Leads […]

Parker Barrett

What does a rocket scientist do for the summer?   

He helps people move! Meet Parker Barrett, a rising junior and Aerospace Engineering major at Virginia Tech and a summer intern in JK’s Government Services Department. So …  what does one have to do with the other?   It started when Parker was 10 years old, and his family moved, using JK Moving to help them relocate. Parker remembers that the move had been a stressful time for him and his brothers, yet, “at the end of the day the crew took some time to stick around with a football to play catch with me and my brothers instead of just leaving.” This small act of kindness really resonated with Parker. To him, JK was more than “just moving stuff.” Instead JK represented someplace that emphasized caring about people as a core to the bottom line. According […]
