PhillyBite PhiladelphiaPhiladelphia, PA - The City of Brotherly Love is the No. 8 U.S. Destination City according to the latest U-Haul migration trends report, holding steady from its previous ranking. Philadelphia saw a 5 percent year-over-year increase in one-way U-Haul truck arrivals in 2017 to remain one of the top 10 busiest cities for incoming traffic among do-it-yourself movers.


 

"Philly has been on the verge of a turnaround for years and we are finally seeing business and people moving back into the city," stated Gerald Solarski, U-Haul Company of North Philadelphia president. "There is a vibrancy here that was vacant for more than a decade. There is a new energy in Philly and people are excited about our city again."

"This is also an affordable East Coast metropolitan area. Residents are a quick train ride from Boston and New York City. The Center City District has expanded into a modern-day urban core with skyscrapers, entertainment districts and high-rise apartments. There are also strong neighborhoods with accessible green spaces right outside Center City."
