Inaugural Quarterly Award Given to Global Impact
Sterling, VA—July 22, 2014—JK Moving Services, a full-service moving company founded in 1981 and specializing in commercial, residential, and international moving and storage, today announced that it has awarded its Commercial Move of the Quarter to Global Impact for first quarter 2014.
The honor recognizes and showcases outstanding commercial relocation projects. The award criteria are based on the scope and nature of the move, with an emphasis on projects that have unique components or that helped the client solve a challenge. The award will be given to one commercial client each quarter.
“We have conducted thousands of successful office moves since establishing our Commercial Division in 1996,” said Charles Kuhn, Founder, President and CEO, JK Moving Services. “Over time, the scope of our projects has gone beyond the typical services of moving file cabinets and office equipment. JK’s clients have entrusted us to solve unusual relocation challenges, and we’ve been pleased to rise to the occasion. This award distinguishes and thanks our clients for their confidence in us.”
The first quarter award winner, Global Impact, is a non-profit organization that builds partnerships and raises resources to help the world’s most vulnerable people. When Global Impact relocated in February 2014, it needed to dispose of office furniture that was not moving to its new space in Alexandria. With the help of its partner, Etreev, JK relocated all excess furniture to a donation center where it was then donated to another non-profit group.
“This sustainable practice not only kept our unwanted materials out of a landfill, it also served to fill a need for another non-profit organization,” said Cindy Darnell, Director of Operations, Global Impact. “We loved the idea of reducing our environmental footprint and ‘paying it forward.’ It fit so nicely with our greater mission.”
In addition to facilitating the furniture donation and conducting the actual office move, JK provided a myriad of services for Global Impact, including responsibly recycling 27,000 pounds of shredded documents and recycling obsolete electronic equipment prior to the move.
