JK Moving Services
Moving and relocation company
JK Moving Services
JK Moving Services is an entrepreneurial success story that started almost 40 years ago in the basement of Chuck Kuhn's parents’ home. Since then, we’ve grown to become the largest independent moving company in the nation. JK has become a global leader in the relocation and logistics space, yet focuses each day on what matters most: our customers, our employees, and our community.
What was your challenge?
We as a company we knew we wanted to offshore some of our services that we provide to our clients. I think the reason for the Offshoring was because we knew it is getting increasingly harder in the U.S. to get the right talent and the cost is going up. So we needed a partner that knows the local market, all the legalities and how to navigate through the process of creating an entity in a foreign country.
What was the solution?
When I contacted Ongresso, they got back to me very quickly with very important information that I needed to get the wheels in motion. I personally felt that Ongresso was not a big box brand and that the overall approach was more personal. Another advantage of working with Ongresso is that at the beginning I had many detailed questions, and Joe and his team were always there to help me and answer those questions accurately in order for me to make a decision. I also felt that the value delivered compared to the cost was something that was attractive for us as a company as well.
What was the result?
We found Ongresso and they have been tremendous. They helped us through the process and 6 months later we already have our entity set up. In terms of a measurable positive impact I would definitely mention the savings on the cost for labour in Colombia. We will be saving about $600,000 just in labour. That is definitely something to consider for future companies that might be thinking of Nearshoring.
