Hey y’all! For the third year in a row, U-Haul reports Texas is the number one state receiving one-way truck rentals.
“Texas continues to be the No. 1 Growth State in America, according to U-Haul® data analyzing U.S. migration trends for 2018,” the company said in a press release.
“Growth States are calculated by the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a state versus leaving that state during a calendar year. Migration trends data is compiled from more than 2 million one-way U-Haul truck sharing transactions that occur annually.’
“Texas arrivals of one-way U-Haul trucks were up 5 percent while departures were up 6 percent compared to the state’s 2017 numbers. Despite a larger year-over-year increase in departures, arrivals still accounted for 50.2 percent of all one-way U-Haul traffic in Texas to make it the top state for netting do-it-yourself movers.”
In 2015, Texas was 39th on the list. Now we are numero uno.
“This marks the third year in a row Texas ranks as the U-Haul No. 1 Growth State after rebounding from the No. 39 spot back in 2015. Florida, South Carolina, Utah and Idaho round out the top five states for growth in 2018.”
