For the second straight year “Move Ahead” is presenting Penske Truck Rental’s list of top moving destinations. Just like in 2010, the 2011 edition has plenty of sunny locales. Here is the list:
3. Orlando, Fla.
4. Dallas/Fort Worth
9. Sarasota, Fla.
10. Charlotte, N.C.
In comparison to last year’s listing, the Atlanta market is again the destination of choice. There are no new market entries.
No region moved up or down more than two positions, with Dallas/Fort Worth dropping two places, from second to fourth. Half the list (Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Sarasota, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C.,) remained in identical positions.
“As this list indicates, U.S. residents continue migrating primarily toward warm weather areas,” noted Don Mikes, Penske’s vice president of rental. “The list is compiled through online consumer truck rental reservations and through our call centers.”
Note: Parameters used to compile this list were based on requests for one-way moves in 2011.
