EDMONTON is U-Haul No. 3 Canadian Destination City for 2019

Edmonton registers as the No. 3 Destination City in Canada, according to the latest U-Haul® migration trends report, rising one spot from its ranking on last year’s list.

Year-over-year traffic held steady for one-way U-Haul trucks arriving in Edmonton in 2019 as the city remains one of the top 10 busiest for incoming do-it-yourself movers.

“Recently, Edmonton has gone through a transformative revitalization and has becoming a booming city attracting new residents from all over the world,” said Fred Ward, U-Haul Company of Northern Alberta, Saskatchewan & Northwest Territories president. “Alberta’s capital has long been one of the most vibrant and prosperous cities in North America. It will continue to be a U-Haul destination city for years to come.”

45 Truck-Sharing Locations

U-Haul has five Company-owned stores and 40 independent neighborhood dealers currently operating in Edmonton 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 released its complete Growth States rankings; its top 25 U.S. Growth Cities; and its top 25 Canadian Growth Cities for 2019 in January.

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.
