Migration Trends: Charlotte is No. 9 U.S. Destination

North Carolina’s largest city is the No. 9 U.S. Destination City according to the latest U-Haul® migration trends report, rising one spot from its previous ranking.

Charlotte saw an 8 percent year-over-year increase in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2017 to remain one of the top 10 busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.

“People are moving to Charlotte because they know it’s a great place to live, work and play,” stated Brad Pruitt, U-Haul Company of Charlotte president. “We have a great job market, good weather, and our communities are welcoming and inclusive.

“The economy here is booming. There are tons of startups coming to Charlotte. And just behind San Francisco and New York City, we have the third-largest financial center in the nation.”

U-Haul has eight Company-owned stores and 37 independent neighborhood dealers currently operating in the Charlotte city limits. Find U-Haul truck and trailer sharing locations in Charlotte at uhaul.com/locations.

U-Haul International, headquartered in Phoenix, is counting down its top 10 U.S. Destination Cities as a prelude to Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial beginning of the summer moving season. About 45 percent of all moves each year occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.
