ALEXANDRIA, Va. — JK Moving Services, a global moving, storage, relocation and logistics enterprise headquartered in metropolitan Washington, D.C., has been named the nation’s top independent moving company for 2016 by the American Moving & Storage Association.
The company will be presented with the Independent Mover of the Year Award during the AMSA 98th Annual Education Conference & Expo in Palm Springs, California, February 28.
The award, also known as “the Indy,” reflects the association’s and the industry’s commitment to outstanding performance among independent movers as demonstrated through innovative business methods and practices, community involvement, customer service practices, employee relations, and operations that address a current and compelling social or economic issue. The recipient is selected by a panel of industry experts.
JK Moving Services previously won the top mover award in 2011 and also was honored in 2013, 2014 and 2015 with AMSA Safety Awards for its excellent safety record.

They also have been a leader in corporate social responsibility by supporting many worthwhile charitable causes.”
JK Moving Services was founded in 1981 by President and CEO Chuck Kuhn.

JK has been the mover of choice for congressional members, professional athletes and even presidents, including President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton, Michael said.
JK Moving Services’ support of charitable organizations includes Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now), A Wider Circle, All Ages Read Together, Boulder Crest Retreat, and Fight for Children.
