London registers as the No. 6 Destination City in Canada, according to the latest U-Haul® migration trends report, maintaining its ranking on last year’s list.
London saw a 12% year-over-year drop in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2019, but still attracted enough customers to remain one of the top 10 busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.
“London continues to attract DIY movers from all over Canada,” said David Anstett, U-Haul Company of Western Ontario president. “The city is the hub of southwestern Ontario because its home to Western University. The school is constantly bringing young and highly skilled entrepreneurs to London. Once they graduate, they become part of the workforce and make London their permanent home.”
U-Haul has two Company-owned stores and 34 independent neighborhood dealers currently operating in London 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.
