In the following interview with A Gathering of Experts, All State Van Lines Relocation discusses moving trends around the U.S.

A Gathering of Experts: Why is it important for a company like All State Van Lines Relocation to research moving trends?

All State Van Lines Relocation: We’re a service company. We must stay in touch with moving trends to ensure that we have access to those who want to be connected to moving help. All State Van Lines Relocation needs to have a presence in high volume markets to find and serve customers.

A Gathering of Experts: Let’s start with trends for last year. How many people moved in the U.S. in 2012?

All State Van Lines Relocation: The U.S. Census Bureau’s most recent figures show that the nation’s overall moving rate increased from a record low of 11.6 percent of the U.S. population in 2011 to 12 percent in 2012.

A Gathering of Experts: How many people does that represent?

All State Van Lines Relocation: About 36.5 million people on the move in 2012, compared to 35.1 million in 2011.

A Gathering of Experts: Why the record low?

All State Van Lines Relocation: It’s hard to be precise, but it’s clear the economy was still bad in 2011. The major reason people move long distance is job related, either to find a new job or relocate for a job.

A Gathering of Experts: Does this mean that the economy improved in 2012?

All State Van Lines Relocation: By that calculation, perhaps so. All State Van Lines Relocation is optimistic on that score.

A Gathering of Experts: Are most of these moves local?

All State Van Lines Relocation: Yes. 64.4 percent of people moved within the same county. Of those who left their previous county, either to another county within the same state or to another state, the average distance moved was less than 50 miles.

A Gathering of Experts: So most moving business is local?

All State Van Lines Relocation: Yes. All State Van Lines Relocation movers generally spend much more time packing and loading than driving. We specialize in arranging long-distance moves, not local moves.

A Gathering of Experts: How do you gauge the top regions of the nation for moving?

All State Van Lines Relocation: The Census Bureau measures it state-to-state. All State Van Lines Relocation pays special attention to those statistics.

A Gathering of Experts: What are the top state-to-state moves?

All State Van Lines Relocation: New York to Florida and California to Texas are the top two with about 59,000 relocating people each. California to Arizona and Florida to Georgia are next. New York and New Jersey swapped just about the same amount of residents, about 41,000 each.

A Gathering of Experts: That’s interesting.

All State Van Lines Relocation: Research shows that is a lot of business people moving around the New York City metropolitan area. They’re short distances but often big lifestyle differences.

A Gathering of Experts: Can you name some other top state-to-state statistics?

All State Van Lines Relocation: California to Nevada, Georgia to Florida, and California to Washington are numbers 7, 8 and 9 on the Top 10.

A Gathering of Experts: Which is last?

All State Van Lines Relocation: Texas to California rounds out the Top 10 with approximately 37,000 people moving.

A Gathering of Experts: By comparison, in the middle of the country, people are staying put.

All State Van Lines Relocation: That’s about right.
