Moving Van Ins & Outs

Early last month United Van Lines released their 36th annual ‘migration’ study wherein the company tracks the most moving van activity for top 5 states performing ‘in’ moves; and the top 5 losers that are rolling trucks to locations far and wide. The bulk of the lower 48 is deemed ‘balanced’ by the study; that is, the diffference between ins and outs is negligible. Surprises or maybe not: New York is a definitive ‘loser’; and despite all evidence that moving to Las Vegas is a terrible idea, they keep coming. Below is a Google Fusion Intensity Map that I compiled from the simple data array.
