JK Moving Services does not list their charges on their website. To obtain a quote, you need to submit a request online by filling out your contact details, as well as the date and location of your move. You will then be contacted by a customer-support agent to arrange either an in-home estimate, or an estimate via the app, so your needs can be accurately assessed and a service package tailored to your specific requirements.
The overall cost is dependent on the volume of items to be moved, the distance covered by the move, and the level of service you require (for example, whether you will pack your belongings yourself or go for the full service package with trained and experienced staff).
JK Moving Services works with you from start to finish in the moving process. The personal touch begins when you submit the online form and a member of staff will contact you to arrange a personalized evaluation of your needs and an accurate price quote. Once your chosen relocation package is agreed, JK Moving Services will connect you with your own personal move-coordinator to accompany you throughout the process, a point person for all your queries, managing the movers, and ensuring a smooth relocation. Should you need it, there is also a 24/7 live customer-support line, so even out-of-hours enquiries are answered by a real person.
The company offers a full-service packing option in which its fully trained staff expertly packs up all your belongings with extra care, as well as inventory tagging every item.

You also have the option of “DIY packing”, for which you are provided with all the packing supplies you need, and you control how you pack it. Across the packages, the company is very aware of sustainability and a lot of its packaging is reused.
JK Moving Services takes great care in loading up your belongings securely on its trucks, and it has a tracker on each vehicle so you can track your move till it reaches its destination. Upon arrival, it takes great care in offloading all your belongings, at which point you can also take advantage of JK’s complete unpacking service.

The warehouses are climate controlled and have fire-suppression systems that will ensure all your belongings are kept safe and secure for the duration.

All of its truck drivers are fully trained and certified.
