January 7, 2008—Sterling, VA—JK Moving & Storage was welcomed by the National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) as their newest member and Industry Partner. This designation further highlights JK's commitment to the growing senior population through specialized relocation service offerings.

"On behalf of NASMM, I am pleased to welcome JK Moving & Storage to NASMM's growing family of premier senior move management providers," said Mary Kay Buysse, NASMM's Executive Director.

A DC Metro area staple, JK Moving & Storage provides local, long distance and international moving services, in addition to traditional and portable storage. With nearly 30 years in the industry, JK conducts more than 12,000 household moves annually and works closely with many active adult and senior living communities across the country.

"Our main focus has always been to deliver impeccable service and quality performance." said JK Moving & Storage President & CEO, Chuck Kuhn. "Our involvement with NASMM and the launch of our new JK Cares program takes this one step further."

The JK Cares program matches in-house senior relocation specialists with each customer, provides packing, unpacking and moving services, settling in (hanging drapes, pictures and ceiling fans, setting up computers and TVs), and debris pick up. JK's customer service team members have also been trained and have on-the-job experience working with senior clientele, as well as the specific parameters set by many communities (elevator management, building protection, move-in/move-out windows).

JK has Certified Moving Consultants working closely with several active adult communities in the Metro DC area and across the country. Some of which include:

- Ashby Ponds, an Erickson Community in Ashburn, Va.
