U-Haul listed Myrtle Beach 17th in the country for one-way moves using U-Haul trucks.
U-Haul provides an annual listing of “growth cities” – by calculating the net gain of one-way U-Haul trucks entering a city/market versus leaving that city/market in a calendar year.
U-Haul listed Myrtle Beach 17th in the country for one-way moves using U-Haul trucks. The one-way truck trips rose 32% from the same metric in 2020, according to the "U-Haul Growth Index" released from the company.
The one-way moves are one metric to contextualize rapid growth in the area. Myrtle Beach continues to be one of the fastest-growing areas in the country, proven again by the 2020 U.S. Census. With a remote-work revolution brought on by the pandemic, relocating has exploded throughout the last two years.
That could mean workers formerly tethered to the region housing their office have a newfound freedom, and some have chosen the beach.
