Americans Are Still Long-Distance Moving in 2023

Long-distance movers are still leaving northern cities for Florida cities like Orlando, Tampa, Sarasota, and South Florida spots like Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and West Palm Beach. However, there is a lot of momentum for Sunbelt locations such as Tucson, Arizona. That said, the top five inbound mover states in 2022 were Texas, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.

Quality of life and lower cost of living are the greatest motivations for long-distance movers leaving California, Illinois, Michigan, Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey. As specialists in long-distance, state-to-state moving, we helped relocate over 12,000 households last year, and on-pace for more out-state movers and corporate relocations this year year. Not to brag, but we have received a ton of praise for state-to-state moving satisfaction and selected as one of best long-distance movers for 2023.
