Wisconsin finishes 13th highest on U-Haul’s 2020 migration growth ranking

269

California displaced Illinois as the state with the biggest net loss of U-Haul trucks in 2020, the moving company reported. And Wisconsin was ranked 41st in U-Haul’s 2019 migration growth study.

Wisconsin came in 13th highest on a new ranking measuring migration growth among the states based on one-way U-Haul truck traffic leaving or entering their borders last year.

Those states with the most migration growth are ranked based on net gains of one-way U-Haul trucks entering the state vs. trucks leaving their borders during a calendar year. More than 2 million one-way trips are logged by U-Haul every year, the company reported.

Both Texas and Florida had the most net gains in U-Haul truck traffic from 2016 to 2019 before they were displaced by Tennessee in 2020, the company said. What makes Tennessee attractive is its business-friendliness and low taxes, according to U-Haul.
