Austin Number 3 In U.S. For Moves Into Town
No, you are not mistaken: there are more of those U-Haul moving vans than ever in traffic around here. According to moving van rental company U-Haul, there are so many people moving into Austin, it has ranked the company as the number 3 city in the U.S. for moves in 2015 for the company. The company said that its locations in Austin saw 50.8 percent of truck rental customers coming into the city, as opposed to leaving, and also said that Austin is a "hotbed" for migration activity and population growth. In addition to perennial drivers of moves to Austin--such as students moving to school at UT Austin and Austin's lively music scene and industry--the company cited a large number of jobs being added in the city from technology companies such as Google, IBM, Apple, and others.
