Las Vegas registers as the No. 2 U.S. Destination City in America, according to the latest U-Haul® migration trends report, rising one spot from its ranking on last year’s list.
Las Vegas saw a 3% year-over-year increase in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2019 to stay one of the top 10 busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.
“Las Vegas is attracting new residents from all over the world,” said Victor Mesa, U-Haul Company of Las Vegas East president. “Tons of Californians are packing up their U-Haul trucks and moving to Las Vegas. People are looking for new job opportunities or trying to retire in an affordable city. Las Vegas is the perfect city and it’s growing every day.”
U-Haul has 14 Company-owned stores and 47 independent neighborhood dealers currently operating in the Las Vegas 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.
