Here is another data source that confirms the states people are going to and escaping from, that we showed in Census data last week.
U-Haul’s list is compiled from over two million one-way rentals and ranks states by the ratio of inbound to outbound rentals. Texas edged out Florida for the top spot again this year, while California took last place for the fourth year in a row.
It can now cost four to 10 times more to rent a U-Haul in a blue state like California to move to a red state like Utah than to make the opposite move. This is to reimburse the U-Haul companies for the cost of having to pay a driver to get the vans and trucks back to the blue states to accommodate the next batch of exiles.
