U.S. Growth City No. 1: Concord, CA. Tops U-Haul List for 2015
Family-Friendly Destination Attracts Many Do-It-Yourself Movers
Blending the convenience and business opportunities of the Bay Area with the escape of the California countryside and residential life, Concord enjoys advantages that many people shop for in a hometown.
U-Haul truck sharing customers seem to agree. They generated a steady stream of arrivals last year in Contra Costa County’s largest city, making Concord No. 1 on the U-Haul Top 10 U.S. Growth Cities for 2015.
Growth rankings are determined by the net gain of incoming one-way U-Haul truck rentals versus outgoing rentals for the past calendar year. The annual migration trends report was compiled from more than 1.7 million one-way U-Haul truck transactions that occurred in 2015. All cities were considered, regardless of size.
“The City of Concord is honored that U-Haul is recognizing us as the top growth city in the U.S. because it confirms what our residents already know: with a high quality of life, job opportunities and a varied housing stock, Concord is a diverse, family-friendly city with activities and attractions that appeal to young and old alike,” said Marilyn Fowler, president and CEO of the Concord Chamber of Commerce.
