According to U-Haul’s Growth Index report for 2023, NC remains one of the most popular states to move to.

Texas was the most popular state for migration for the second consecutive year. Followed by Florida and North Carolina.

Charlotte remains as one of the top 10 fastest growing metro areas in the nation.

U-Haul calculates the net gain of one-way truck rentals to determine the popularity of different states.

Texas had a net gain of about 174,000 new residents in 2022, making it the fastest-growing state. On the other hand, California saw the largest net loss of one-way movers, with over 817,000 people leaving the state in 2022.

U-Haul’s report provides insights into where people are moving, although it doesn’t directly correlate with population or economic growth.
