Moving across country is a rite of passage (and a test of will) for millions of Americans each year.
But where are they all going?
Two of America’s leading truck rental companies, Penske and U-Haul, recently released separate analyses of where people are moving based on their own customer data.
While their methodology differs, both lists offer unique insights on the places where long-distance movers are flocking.
U-Haul’s Top 10 U.S. Growth Cities
U-Haul determined its list using the net gain of incoming one-way rentals versus outgoing rentals for the calendar year 2015. There were a total of 1.7 million one-way U-Haul rentals last year.
“In conjunction with a great location, Concord remains one of the few affordable cities in the Bay Area and is surrounded by cities that offer sustained job growth,” said James Bostwick, U-Haul Company of East Bay president.
U-Haul also analyzed net incoming truck rentals on a state level, naming North Carolina the number one growth state.
Penske Truck Rentals Top Moving Destinations
Penske Truck Rentals considers one-way truck rental totals only for their list.
“Our own data, compiled from do-it-yourself moves across the country, mirror the country’s migration and areas of growth,” said Don Mikes, Penske’s senior vice president of rental.
