Mailbox move requests stuck

I have three mailbox move requests that have been stuck on "waiting for job pick up" for a couple of hours. They are at various levels of completion;

The fact that they are at various stages means that the process itself appears to be working... you are  probably experiencing back pressure - 

you can do two things about this
1) wait
2) customise your transport config files to allow greater resource usage - 

the one at 95% - do you perhaps have "wait on completion" enabled for that move?
get-moverequest <mailbox at 95%> | fl

if yes

Get-MoveRequest "Mailbox" | Set-MoveRequest -SuspendWhenReadyToComplete:$false
Get-MoveRequest "Mailbox" | Resume-MoveRequest

When I run the command get-moverequest <mailbox at 95%> | fl I get the following error;

Couldn't find a move request that corresponds to the specified identity 'jason'.

Is there a way to delete or restart these requests and try again?
