U-Haul International, Inc., the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage, is pleased to announce the top U-Haul Destination Cities for 2017 with the return of its annual migration reports.

Jersey City is the No. 46 U.S. Destination City according to the latest U-Haul migration trends report, entering the rankings after not making last year’s top 50 list.

Jersey City saw a year-over-year increase of 18 percent in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2017 to become one of busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.

Rankings are based on 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 DIY movers coming into a community.

They do not account for departing one-way U-Haul trucks, and thus do not necessarily signify growth like U-Haul Growth Cities and Growth States rankings.

Stay tuned for more migration trends news.

U-Haul is counting down its top 10 U.S. Destination Cities as a prelude to Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial beginning of the summer “moving season.”

About 45 percent of all moves each year occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

The No. 1 Destination City will be announced on May 25 via Twitter @uhaul and on
