Migration Trends: San Antonio Ranks as No. 5 U.S. Destination

| May 22, 2018


San Antonio is the No. 5 U.S. Destination City according to the latest U-Haul migration trends report, backing up two spots from its ranking on last year’s list.

San Antonio saw a 2 percent year-over-year increase in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2017 to remain one of the five busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.

“Downtown is in the midst of a revitalization effort, bringing updated housing to a growing population,” stated Sam Molina, U-Haul Company of San Antonio East president. “The skyline is changing rapidly. We have businesses moving into San Antonio, and the cost of living is fairly affordable. Industry leaders in IT, cybersecurity and medical are all choosing the Alamo City.

“San Antonians ooze pride for their city. It is rich in history and has something for everyone. The fast-paced city is balanced with the small-town feel and friendly Texas atmosphere.”

Rankings are based on the total number of arriving one-way trucks into a city in the past calendar year. Destination Cities reflect the volume and regularity of do-it-yourself movers coming into a community. They do not account for departing one-way trucks, and thus do not necessarily signify growth like U-Haul Growth Cities and Growth States rankings.
