Texas is the number one destination in America, according to U-Haul

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.”

Ranking dead last was Illinois. California — which has seen 1800 companies relocate to Texas — also took a low spot, No. 47.
