"U-Haul remains committed to helping families move In-Town, as well as across the United States and Canada. People continue to move due to life-changing events, no matter what the economics may be, and these numbers reflect that," stated John "JT" Taylor, president, U-Haul International, Inc. "Our customers rely on us to provide clean, well-maintained, affordable equipment to move their families. This past year, the mileage placed on U-Haul trucks, trailers and towing equipment would move a family to the moon and back more than 9.9 times a day."

The reports, reflective of growth patterns of the United States during 2013, were compiled based on nationwide trends in states with a minimum of 5,000 – 20,000 families and more than 20,000 families moving in or out of the area. Growth was then determined by calculating the percentage of inbound moves vs. outbound moves for each state.

The U-Haul 2013 Top 10 U.S. Growth States Report was compiled from more than 1.7 million U-Haul one-way truck transactions for calendar year 2013.

Did you know…The annual mileage of North American U-Haul trucks, trailers and tow dollies would move a family to the moon and back again more than 9.9 times per day, every day of the year and could also travel around the Earth more than 177 times per day, every day of the year.
