Arizona In Top 5 States People Are Moving Too

Data For 2020 & 2021 Shows The Winner And Loser States

people are moving tucson arizonaArizona is in the top 5 states people are moving too. How do we know, you may be asking?

Thousands of U-Haul customers have spoken. Actually, they moved.

The data included over two million one-way U-Haul truck customer transactions in 2020 and 2021. Data showed people are moving to Texas, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina and Arizona were the most sought-after states.

So there are a lot of people are moving to Arizona.


But from where?

U-Haul, a Phoenix-based company, has answered that burning question.

California remained the top state for out-migration, but its net loss of U-Haul trucks wasn’t as severe as in 2020. BUT this could due to the fact that U-Haul ran out of vehicles in 2021. They simpley could not meet customer demand for outbound equipment in California.

The top ten Arizona-bound, 2021 one-way U-Haul trucks originated …..that means people are moving from (in order):

  1. California
  2. Illinois
  3. New Jersey
  4. Massachusetts
  5. Maryland
  6. Oregon
  7. Louisiana
  8. Connecticut
  9. New York
  10. Pennsylvania

These U-Haul migration trends do not correlate to population or economic growth. But it is an effective gauge of states that are attracting and maintaining residents.

U-Haul’s extensive 50 state network makes them the authority on migration trends.

U-Haul has over 22,000 truck and trailer-sharing locations in the United States. This provides them a comprehensive look at where people are moving. There is no other organization able to do this.

What Makes Arizona A Top State People Are Moving Too?

Some of the top reasons Arizona is a go to destination include:

  • Beautiful weather nine months out of the year (Ok, Summers are hot, but you don’t have to shovel sunshine!)
  • Resort-style living
  • Prestigious restaurants and shopping
  • Specialty education options
  • Reasonable cost of living combined with the ability to work from home
  • More homes with casita options to accommodate to extended family members
  • Close to hot spots including Vegas, San Diego and Puerto Penasco (Mexico)
  • Perceived value compared to other major metro areas

The number of people moving to Arizona isn’t expected to slow down despite the tight supply of inventory.

Both the two major cities in Arizona – Phoenix and Tucson – are experiencing a shortage of homes for sale.
