Tualatin Named U-Haul Growth City for 2016


If you needed any more proof Tualatin is a great place to live, it just arrived in the form of a report from U-Haul on destination cities for people using their moving trucks. Tualatin ranked No. 2 among the U-Haul Top 25 U.S. Growth Cities for locations with a population of 10,000 to 50,000.

U-Haul International, Inc., the industry leader in do-it yourself moving and self storage, announced the top U-Haul Growth Cities and Growth States for 2016 with the return of its annual migration reports.

The U-Haul facility at Bridgeport reported 55.8 percent of one-way truck rental customers coming into the city as opposed to leaving. Tualatin had a 68 percent increase in one-way truck arrivals year-over-year, while departures rose 48 percent over the same span.

Growth rankings are calculated by the net gain of arriving U-Haul one-way trucks over departing one-way U-Haul trucks for the calendar year. While migration trends do not correlate directly to population or economic growth, U-Haul growth data is an effective gauge of how well cities are attracting and maintaining residents.
