U-Haul Names Calgary as Top 2012 Canadian Destination City

PHOENIX (April 12, 2013) — U-Haul International, Inc., today released the results of the annual 2012 U-Haul National Migration Trend Report titled “The U-Haul 2012 Top 25 Canadian Destination Cities.” According to moving data reflective of nationwide statistics for calendar year 2012, Calgary ranked No. 1 and took first place from Toronto, which ranked No. 1 for 10 years in a row and dropped down to No. 2.  Montreal ranked No. 3 and Edmonton took No. 4 for the fourth year in a row. Ottawa, Vancouver, London, Kitchener, Mississauga and Hamilton rounded out the top 10.

 “Since 1955, U-Haul has built a long and proud history of helping families move and store their belongings, throughout Canada,” stated John “J.T.” Taylor, president, U-Haul International, Inc. “Now more than ever, we are proud to provide Canadian families with a larger selection of moving and self-storage locations.  This makes for a shorter distance to travel when moving, which has a positive effect of reducing the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere while saving money for our customers.”

 The ranking reflects destinations for movers renting a truck one-way and considers every city in the country, regardless of size. However, the data is not stated as a percentage of population and is not reflective of overall growth.

The annual mileage of North American U-Haul trucks, trailers and tow dollies would move a family to the moon and back again more than 9.9 times per day, every day of the year and could also travel around the Earth more than 177 times per day, every day of the year.
