Moving from California: The Trend Continues

As a leading moving company, National Van Lines has been diligently observing the latest trends in the moving industry. The Q1 update of the 2023 National Van Lines Migration Report reveals a significant rise in people considering a move from California compared to the previous year. This growing trend of moving intent out of California has important implications for individuals planning to relocate within or outside the state. At North Bay Moving & Storage, we understand the complexities involved in long-distance moves and can provide you with a seamless and stress-free moving experience.

California has been a hotspot for residents with the highest moving intent since 2020, except for a brief dip to the second spot in 2022. However, California has once again regained its top billing in the first quarter of 2023. This continuous flux in moving intent highlights the changing dynamics of the state’s population and the desire for new opportunities and lifestyles.

The reasons behind Californians choosing to move are diverse. In 2020, many cited the high cost of living, high taxes, and housing affordability as primary factors driving their decision. Furthermore, the recent surge in wildfires, droughts, and other natural disasters has added to concerns about safety and quality of life. These factors have contributed to a growing number of Californians seeking better affordability and a higher quality of life in other states.
