Americans like moving more than they do Mickey Mouse

It’s true. The number of people who move every year, 43 million, is four times more than the number of people who visit Disneyland in the same amount of time.

That’s 17 percent of the population, which amounts for an awful lot of moving companies transferring an awful lot of belongings from here to there.

It’s Stressful!

According to the Employee Relocation Council, there are only two other life events that are more stressful than moving: death and divorce.

Considering a Moving Company?

The most common moving company customers are married couples between the ages of 25 and 44, with one or two kids ranging in age from two to 11.

11.7 Times

The average person will relocate 11.7 times throughout the course of their life, according to information from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Since there’s no such thing as moving “partway,” let’s just go ahead and round that number up to 12. How many times have you moved?

If you just graduated from high school or college, you may want to consider packing up now. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 35 percent of all high school graduates and 30 percent of all college graduates move to another state within five years of graduation.
