Welcome back to the Storage News blog, brought to you by Allstate Self Storage, where we cover all the news that’s fit to move. Last time we started a two part series on moving stats and talked about the busiest days and months for moves, and the types of homes people were moving. This time we’re going to look at some country wide stats.
Where People Are Staying

Well here are where those people are staying: California, Florida, Texas and New Jersey are the top four states for people moving about locally. Of those the cities with the most local moves are New York City, Chicago, and Houston, taking the gold, silver, and bronze respectively. Los Angeles and Miami round out the top 5.

The top ten cities people are moving to are made up many popular places. Seattle, Washginton has moved up to number one, while Denver dropped to second. Other hotspots include several southern cities: Charlotte, Dallas, Austin, Orlando, Tampa, and Atlanta, as well as San Francisco and Portland, OR.
