Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many Americans still moved for work. The top five destination states for Allied corporate moves in 2020 were Texas, California, Illinois, Florida and North Carolina. These five continue to be the highest volume destination states in line with trends from 2019. The top corporate move destination city is Houston, TX for two years in a row. It’s no surprise that Texas, with its business-friendly climate, continues to rank as the top move destination for Allied Corporate Relocation Services customers.
For consumer moves, the top destination state was Florida followed by Texas, California, Arizona and North Carolina. Austin, TX, remains the top destination city for consumers two years in a row. This year, Austin, known as "The Heart of Texas," was named America's Best Job Market by The Wall Street Journal, the Best State Capital to Live in by WalletHub, and the Best U.S. City to be Quarantined in by DeliveryRank. Denver, CO moved up from its number three spot in 2019 to the number two spot in 2020, relegating Chicago to the number three position.
