On average, people in the United States move about once every five to seven years. This pattern is likely to continue in the foreseeable future, suggesting that the overall demand for movers is going to stay strong. However, there may be periods when fewer movers are needed. During economic downturns, people may avoid spending money by postponing moves or by doing part or all of the moving themselves. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts little or no change in employment growth for material moving occupations through 2018. Employment opportunities will probably be strongest in large metropolitan areas simply because there are more people in these locations.
