Houston is # 1 destination city for U-Haul trucks for 8th year in row
Houston is still the No. 1 destination city in the U.S., according to U-Haul, but the city's appeal slipped a little in 2016.In the past, many of the U-Haul trucks have been coming from California and places like Illinois.
The number of arrivals slipped 3.4 percent last year compared with 2015, the company said Friday. It was the eighth consecutive year that Houston was the busiest U.S. market for incoming U-Haul trucks.
"Houston is growing by leaps and bounds," Jerry Lunn, president of U-Haul Co. of Gulf Coast Texas, said in a news release. "In the last year, I've seen countless skyscrapers and condos being built."
