Dallas-Based Moving Company NDMS Spotlights United Van Lines Study Findings: Texas Among Top 10 States for Inbound Moves

DALLAS, Jan. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — United Van Lines recently released its 39th Annual National Movers Study results, which tracks state-by-state migration patterns based on interstate household moves handled by United. As a 40-year agent of United Van Lines, North Dallas Moving and Storage (NDMS) was among the Texas moving companies included in the study data, having served as interstate movers for many Texas residents.

The United Van Lines movers study examined household moves between the 48 contiguous U.S. states as well as the District of Columbia during 2015. To determine the top states for inbound and outbound moves, United compared the percentage of residents moving into and out of each state. According to the study findings, NDMS’ home state of Texas ranked ninth nationwide for inbound moves, with 56.9% of interstate moving clients relocating into the Lone Star State and only 43.1% leaving Texas for other states.

Texas was also was one of the top two states for total inbound residential moves; behind California, it ranked second nationwide. NDMS and other United Van Lines agents helped move 11,777 households into Texas—representing 9.6% of all inbound moves handled by United last year. These findings echo U.S. Census Bureau data, which lists Texas as the second most populous state after California and first in numeric population growth, with a population increase of 490,036 between July 1, 2014 and July 1, 2015.*

“We’re proud to have been the Dallas moving company of choice for many families relocating to Texas, and we’re committed to helping them make a smooth transition to their new home state,” said Brandon Morris, President of North Dallas Moving and Storage.

“Just as 2015 was a great year for Texas and its new residents, it was also an outstanding year for NDMS,” Morris reflected. “We earned several awards and were honored for 40 years of service as a United Van Lines agent, and we helped thousands of residential and business customers get settled into new homes and offices. My team and I are looking forward to an equally successful 2016, and we’re excited to celebrate our 50th year in business this summer.”
