According to an article in my newspaper today, written by Marisa Kendall of the Bay Area News Group, anyone thinking about moving out of the SF Bay Area should be aware that U-Haul truck prices reflect the rush to leave the state. For a 10-long truck and a 26-foot long truck, driving from the Bay Area to Seattle will cost $1,654 and $3,483, respectively. However renting the same trucks for a drive from Seattle to San Jose will only cost $517 and $680 for a four day rental. Renting the same trucks and traveling to Phoenix, AZ will cost $618 and $1,301, while in the other direction it is only $119 and $132. If you want to ship out to Las Vegas it will cost you $945 for the 10-foot truck and $1,990 for a 26-foot truck and $119 and $132 if any sap wanted to move from LV to the Bay Area. North American Van Lines published a report last year which found that California was one of the top five states in the country that people were leaving – a distinction the state has never had before. In 2017, 60% of the moves were out of state and 40% were moving to California.
