Report: Atlanta, Phoenix, Orlando most popular among movers

Penske Truck Rental 2011 data shows southern migration

For the second year in a row, Penske Truck Rental data showed that Americans are moving south and, remarkably, to the same top 10 cities, with almost the same relative frequency.

In only the second year releasing its moving data, Penske, which has 2,382 rental truck locations spread fairly evenly throughout the U.S., shows that Atlanta, for the second year in a row, topped the list as the most popular one-way rental destination in 2011. Perhaps movers are finding value in the depressed housing market there.
