Moving Services in the US

The Moving Services industry has lost operators over the past five years as a result of the housing market collapse and slow economic recovery. Housing starts and home sales slowed and demand for moving services came to a halt due to a lack of new homes on the market. However, these factors have greatly improved in recent years and will continue to do so in the five years to 2021. In addition, metropolitan areas are expected to continue to be the most active areas for moving services, with large populations and shuffling tenants maintaining demand for services.

Companies in this industry provide moving and relocation services, including local, long-distance and international trucking and shipping of used household, institutional and commercial goods, furniture and equipment. Industry operators often provide incidental packing and storage services.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
