Chicago Makes Two U-Haul Top Lists

May 01, 2013

Chicago new homes are great for moving toWhen many people think of moving, the orange U-Haul truck is one of the first things that comes to mind. But, did you think of the fact that U-Haul spends energy figuring out where their orange trucks are going? It turns out a lot of those trucks and the people who rent them are headed to Chicagoland!

Buyers hungry for homes in Chicago made the Windy City the third top destination U-Haul trucks, right behind Houston and Orlando. That means the Windy City beat out Las Vegas, San Antonio, Austin, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Kansas City and Sacramento in the top 10. While U-Haul and competitor Penske’s lists differ on many points, Penske’s list also cited Chicago as a top destination at position five.

Hot on the trails of that list, U-Haul also released their estimates for the fastest growing cities in America, where Chicago placed in the top 20. U-Haul’s estimated 1.87 percent growth put it squarely at position 17. This is more great news for Chicago, and we all look forward to seeing more moving trucks headed to Chicago soon!
