Hamilton registers as the No. 7 Destination City in Canada, according to the latest U-Haul® migration trends report, rising two spots from its ranking on last year’s list.
“Hamilton is considered a destination city because of its location right on Lake Ontario’s shores,” said John Fisher, U-Haul Company of Hamilton president. “We have beautiful shorelines, jaw-dropping waterfalls and some of the lushest trailheads anyone has ever seen.
“This city is popular because the cost of living is reasonable, and since we are located between Toronto and Niagara, many commuters move here to save money. Hamilton is always growing and U-Haul is eager to be part of that growth for years to come.”
U-Haul has three Company-owned stores and 29 independent neighborhood dealers currently operating in Hamilton city limits.
Rankings are based by 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 city, but do not account for departing one-way U-Haul trucks, and thus do not necessarily reflect growth like U-Haul Growth Cities and Growth States rankings do.
U-Haul is the authority on migration trends thanks to its expansive network that blankets all 50 states and 10 Canadian provinces. The geographical coverage from more than 22,000 U-Haul locations provides a comprehensive overview of where people are moving like no one else in the industry. Migration trends data is compiled from more than 2 million one-way U-Haul truck rental transactions that occur annually.
