Columbus Ranks as No. 10 U.S. Destination City

| May 14, 2018


The capital of the Buckeye State is the No. 10 U.S. Destination City, according to the latest U-Haul migration trends report, rising one spot from its previous ranking.

Columbus saw a 5 percent year-over-year increase in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2017 to become one of the top 10 busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.

Columbus is becoming a destination city and a well-known gem in the Midwest,” stated Dean Haske, U-Haul Company of Ohio president. “Many people pass through on their cross-country drives, but more and more are choosing to stay and are making Columbus their home.

Columbus is Ohio’s biggest city, so there is something for everyone. The food culture is awesome. The North Market has an enormous variety. There are tons of things to do. The zoo and aquarium are always ranked among the top in the country. The cost of living is fairly low. Housing is affordable. More young families are drawn to Columbus, and there are plenty of events and festivals catered to a younger crowd.”

Rankings are based on the total number of arriving one-way U-Haul 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.
