As an interstate agent of Allied Van Lines, O’Brien’s Moving & Storage is here to share valuable information about 2021 moving trends throughout the United States.

The “Allied Magnet States Report” is compiled annually to assess moving and housing data throughout the previous years to get a better idea of the moving patterns of homeowners and businesses alike. Then, you can get in touch with our interstate movers to start planning your upcoming relocation.

Interstate Moving Trends

The report highlights migration trends that are identified throughout the residential and corporate moves they handle throughout the year. Trends for 2021 show consumers that are moving are continuing to head to Florida as was the trend the year before. Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Arizona have also been popular destinations this past year.

Those moving for work, on the other hand, are finding their way to larger metro areas in Texas and California. This has been the case for the past 5 years. Across the board, the most popular days to move were Fridays during the summer, especially throughout June and July.
