There's a plan that fits your needs and your budget, and the professionals at JK Moving Services will make sure you have it.
No matter how big or small your move, you'll get a move coordinator who understands what matters most. You might want to do all the packing yourself and make this a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) move. Great. Your move coordinator can guide you on just about everything from supplies to valuation. But maybe you have some fragile heirlooms that mean the world to you. Excellent. JK's full-time, fully trained crews can help you with a fragile-pack only move. And maybe you want to leave everything to us: the packing, the loading, the moving, and the unpacking. Done. Our moving professionals are here to take care of your needs. Each crew member is trained to pack, load, and move everything from grand father clocks, to baby grand pianos in the tightest of spaces. No matter what you're moving, we can handle it.

Professional services. Leave it all to us. Our moving professionals are trained at our very own facilities, and they know just about everything there is to know about packing, loading and moving. We'll meticulously wrap each item, and provide you with an inventoried list of everything you're moving, to help keep track of all of your belongings. Before we pack or move a thing, we’ll protect your property covering surfaces like carpets, doors, and door jambs in both your old and new spaces.

Custom crating. After your furniture is wrapped and your boxes are packed, most items are placed in secure, weatherproof crates that we design and build at our facilities. We offer a number of standard moving crate sizes, and we can even create custom crates to fit special items, such as marble furniture, mirrors, grandfather clocks, and art collections, just to name a few.

Inventory of items. JK has the lowest claims rate in the business. Why? Because all of our moving specialists are full-time employees, trained in the art and science of packing, loading, moving, and unpacking. When you're making a long distance move or going into storage, we provide you with an itemized inventoried list of your items. This list helps us keep track of your belongings, and should damage occur to any of your items along the way, you're ensured a quick claims process.Back to top.
Home and property protection and loading. Before anything is packed, moved, or unpacked, JK's trained moving professionals prep your space, protecting carpets with runners, and banisters, doors, and doorjambs with padding. All furniture is wrapped in a protective layer of clear, plastic stretch wrap or a quilted moving pad to protect it from things like dirt, debris, and weather. Once everything is ready, items are systematically loaded onto our trucks to ensure everything is secure. Back to top.
Unloading. Prior to unloading, your new space will be prepped with proper padding and runners to ensure maximum protection of your valuables and your property. Each box and piece of furniture has been carefully marked with a room designation to guide JK Moving's skilled crews in properly and safely unloading your shipment. Back to top.
Unpacking. Before moving your family to your new space, you and a JK representative will create a floorplan, designating where all boxes and furniture items need to go, and which items are to be unpacked. Once everything is in place, a hand-selected JK partner crew will carefully unpack designated items, placing them in their new rooms.Back to top.
