U-Haul Ranks Dallas as 2013 Top U.S. Growth City

PHOENIX (April 10, 2014) — The results of the annual U-Haul National Migration Trend Reports are in, reflecting the nation’s top growth areas for families that moved during 2013. The U-Haul 2013 Top U.S. Growth Cities Report indicates that for cities with more than 5,000 families moving, Dallas took the No. 1 spot with the highest percentage of growth, at 9.96 percent, with Henderson, Nev., taking the No. 2 spot with a 9.58 percentage of growth and Pittsburgh taking the No. 3 spot with 6.92 percentage of growth. 

“The report, reflective of growth patterns in the United States during 2013, was compiled based on nationwide trends in cities of all sizes and reflects communities with more than 5,000 families moving in or out of the area,” stated John “J.T.” Taylor, president, U-Haul International, Inc. “Growth cities were then determined by calculating the percentage of inbound moves vs. outbound moves for each area.”

The U-Haul 2013 Top U.S. Growth Cities Report was compiled from more than 1.7 million U-Haul one-way truck transactions occurring during a recent 12-month period.
