By Harold Bubil, Herald-Tribune
Sarasota ranks No. 10 in the nation among U.S. moving destinations, according to a just-released report by Penske Truck Rental.
The other nine metropolitan areas are major cities, such as Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, Orlando and Charlotte, N.C.
North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota is the 73rd largest metropolitan statistical area in the U.S. with more than 709,000 inhabitants in 2011, according to the Census Bureau. Orlando is No. 26 with nearly 2.2 million; Charlotte, N.C., is No. 33 at 1.7 million.
Penske, a global transportation services provider, said the list is compiled through online consumer truck rental reservations and through Penske Truck Rental call centers. Only one-way moves in 2012 were considered.
