The U-Haul Growth Index analyzed one-way customer moves during 2023 and found North Carolina to be the 3rd top destination for movers. North Carolina destinations accounted for 51% of all one-way U-Haul traffic into the state. It is the fourth time in the last five years that North Carolina has registered as a top-10 growth state. It was also noted that the state was sought after for its affordability and natural beauty. The analysis was compiled according to the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks, trailers and U-Box moving containers arriving in a city or state, versus departing from that city or state, in a calendar year.
