Yet another example of the number of people wanting to live in Texas is the projection from U-Haul that Texas remains its No. 1 growth state.

U-Haul develops that from analysis of U.S. migration trends for 2018 that calculates the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a state versus leaving that state during a calendar year.

This marks the third year in a row that Texas ranks as the U-Haul No. 1 Growth State after rebounding from the No. 39 spot back in 2015, the company said in a news release. Florida, South Carolina, Utah and Idaho round out the top five states for growth in 2018.

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.

Illinois ranks 50th for the third time in four years with the most net departures of U-Haul trucks, outpacing No. 48 California and No. 49 Michigan among out-migration states.

While migration trends do not correlate directly to population or economic growth, U-Haul growth data is an effective gauge of how well states and cities are attracting and maintaining residents, the company said.

Spring, McKinney, Katy, Kaufman, Pflugerville, Round Rock and New Braunfels pace Texas’s net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks. Pharr, Brownsville, El Paso, Lubbock, Irving and Arlington are among other notable cities with net gains, the news release said.

U-Haul has more than 21,000 locations across all 50 states and 10 Canadian provinces. The U-Haul fleet includes 161,000 trucks, 118,000 trailers and 42,000 towing devices.

U-Haul is the largest installer of permanent trailer hitches in the automotive aftermarket industry and is the largest retailer of propane in the U.S., the news release said/ More information about state rankings: http://myuhaulstory.com – FWBP Staff
