Did you know? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American moves 12 times during the course of their lifetime. And, 75% of all those moves are made before they turn 44 years old. Over 40 million people move every year here in America. That’s basically 1 out of every 6 Americans every year. The Census data shows that most people move to a new address in the same county – across town, perhaps. That number is about 23.4 million in all. A smaller number of those who move, roughly 15 million, move out of the county or out of the state. The most common state-to-state move is from California to Texas. The second most common state-to-state move is from New York to Florida. And, the remaining 1.2 million of annual movers actually move out of the country.

Moving is as much a part of America life as going to school or getting a job. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the average America makes 11 job changes during the course of their career. What this means is that you’ll actually see more new homes than new jobs during your life. How about that!

So, given that moving is a fairly common occurrence here in America, it stands to reason that access to moving trucks and moving supplies are an absolute necessity in every town in America. (That, and a number of good friends that will help you move all those boxes and furniture for a few slices of pizza, right?) This brings us to the topic of our self-storage blog article.

If one out of every six people will move every year, the need for trucks and boxes and packing supplies and tape and great-big Sharpie markers is huge.
