During the six years that we’ve published the Penske Truck Rental Top Moving Destinations list, there have been two constants: our customers continue relocating en masse to the Sun Belt region of the United States and Atlanta winds up as the premier destination.
“Our own data, compiled from do-it-yourself moves across the country, mirror the country’s migration and areas of growth,” explained Don Mikes, Penske’s senior vice president of rental.

Previous year’s ranking in parentheses
The award-winning list contains no new entries from the 2014 edition. The Phoenix metro area continues moving up the list. They’re now at No. 2 after finishing fourth in 2014 and fifth in 2013.
“We take pride in having been ranked number one every single year the Top Moving Destinations list has been published,” said Kerry Gilbert, Penske’s area vice president for the mid-south, who is based in suburban Atlanta.
“It’s a great place to live and work: there are a lot of attractions here and it’s a major metropolitan area that is in close proximity to the state’s natural areas of beauty,” he continued. “There are a large number of major employers here and it is a centralized area for transportation operations on the East Coast.”
Penske’s list is crafted by analyzing: one-way consumer truck rental reservations made via the company website and the 1-800-GO-PENSKE phone number, and through reservations made at company locations.
Penske Truck Rental is a business unit of Penske Truck Leasing. The below infographics contain facts and figures for each of the metropolitan areas.
