It’s no surprise that Americans who are still moving are moving to the Sun Belt.

Sun Belt = Preferred Destination of Movers in 2021

The truck rental company Penske recently released its annual Top Moving Destinations report.   As it has for the last few years, cities within America’s Sun Belt region were the most popular destinations for 2021 movers.

Penske uses data from its one-way consumer rental reservations to compile its list of city favorites.

Fewer People Moved in 2021

According to a March 2022 report from the US Census Bureau, there was an historic drop in mover rate during 2021.  The Census Bureau’s report indicated that 8.4% of people moved to a different residence in 2021, down from 9.3% who moved during 2020.

This 8.4% is the lowest share of movers since the Census Bureau began collecting this data in 1948.  The Bureau report stated, “In 2021, less than one-fifth (of movers) moved from one state to another, while more than half moved within the same county.  This was also the case in 2017 through 2020.”

This latest Bureau report on moving also notes that due to international travel restrictions in place during 2021, there were fewer international movers.  There were also fewer people moving for job-related purposes in 2021.
