At Simonik Transportation & Warehousing, we’ve been moving businesses and households to and from New Jersey since 1977. Through our 40+ years of experience and our long-time partnership with Allied Van Lines, we’ve become true experts in relocations of all sizes and scopes—from local moves within New Jersey to complex cross-country trips.
Serving the majority of central and southern NJ, we are among the largest NJ interstate movers and proud Allied agents in the Garden State. While collaborating with hundreds of families and companies each year, our work represents just a small portion of the total moves taking place across the United States. Keep reading to find out where the most people moved to and from in 2017!
The Five Most Popular Moving Destinations in 2017
Every year, Allied releases the Allied Van Lines Magnet States Report, a detailed look at how many moves took place in each state over the last calendar year. The states with the greatest number of net moves—found by subtracting the number of outbound moves from the number of inbound moves—are called the most magnetic.
For the 2017 year, Allied found the top five most magnetic states to be:
- Florida – 1,740 net moves
- Arizona – 1,659 net moves
- North Carolina – 1,200 net moves
- South Carolina – 715 net moves
- Texas – 595 net moves
Allied Van Lines Vice President and General Manager Lesli Bertoli explains that Florida and Arizona frequently top this list, thanks largely to their popularity among retirees.
If you’re wondering how our home state fits into this bigger picture, we were, too! It turns out that New Jersey was the fourth-least magnetic state in 2017—meaning that it had more outbound moves (1,617) than inbound moves (994). In both cases, Simonik Transportation & Warehousing undoubtedly played a key role.
