U-Haul International, Inc., the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage, is pleased to announce the top U-Haul Destination Cities for 2016 with the return of its annual migration reports.
Kelowna ranks No. 16 among the U-Haul Top 50 Canadian Destination Cities. Kelowna saw a 9.5 percent increase in year-over-year arrivals, rising 8 spots from last year and continuing to be one of the busiest Canadian markets for incoming U-Haul trucks.
U-Haul Destination Cities are ranked according to the total number of arriving one-way U-Haul truck rentals to a city in the past calendar year. Destination Cities do not account for departing traffic and thus do not necessarily reflect growth like U-Haul Growth Cities. Destination Cities reflect the volume and regularity of do-it-yourself movers coming into a community.
Stay tuned for more migration trends news. U-Haul unveiled the Top 10 Destination Cities in countdown format beginning June 19 with the No. 10 city and running through today, June 30, with the No. 1 city. U-Haul shared its Top 10 U.S. Destination Cities in May.
