“Since 1955, U-Haul has built a long and proud history of helping families move and store their belongings, throughout Canada,” stated John “J.T.” Taylor, president, U-Haul International, Inc. “Now more than ever, we are proud to provide Canadian families with a larger selection of moving and self-storage locations. This makes for a shorter distance to travel when moving, which has the positive effect of reducing the amount of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere while saving money for our customers.”
The ranking reflects destinations for movers renting a truck one way and considers every city in the country, regardless of size. However, the data is not stated as a percentage of population and is not reflective of overall growth.
Did you know…The annual mileage of North American U-Haul trucks, trailers and auto transports would move a family to the moon and back again more than 9.9 times per day, every day of the year and could also travel around the Earth more than 177 times per day, every day of the year.
Since 1945, U-Haul has been serving do-it-yourself movers and their households. Like many other successful ventures, the concept for U-Haul was generated out of need. After World War II, there existed the widespread need for do-it-yourself moving equipment that would be available on a one-way, nationwide basis. U-Haul co-founders L.S. “Sam” Shoen and his wife, Anna Mary Carty Shoen, recognized that need and acted upon it. Their visionary approach spread the cost of ownership among many users, facilitating the mobility of the populations of the U.S. and Canada. The covered wagon of the pioneers morphed into orange U-Haul trailers. For more information, please visit: https://www.uhaul.com
