If you’re considering living in Arizona you’ll find that there are a number of good reasons for moving to that state. You’ve probably already realized the advantages of making the move. But it sometimes takes a long time to decide if relocating is the right thing to do, so it’s a good idea to take a while to think about the details before you decide if it’s right for you.
Each year, a lot of people move to new homes in the United States. Around 12 percent of the population, or about 35 million people, leave their current residence for a new domicile. A number of families and individuals from across the country relocate to Arizona, and they often find that it can be an exciting adventure.
If you’re new to Arizona, there are many new sights and experiences in store for you. Numerous guidebooks and online sites supply an almost endless inventory of information about every conceivable benefit that the state offers.
Among your first decisions will be selecting the best places to live in Arizona. Do you prefer life in the city, a small town or in the country? You can find a variety of options that will fit the kind of environment that suits you best. The next step is to choose several different locations that fit your preferences, and then look at the advantages that each provides. If you have friends or relatives you’d like to be near, that can help you narrow down the options. They can also probably help you make a good decision by providing advice and inside information.
Once you’ve considered the many advantages and opportunities the state offers, you’ll probably be asking yourself, should I move to Arizona, to another state that’s also interesting, or should I stay in my current state? It all depends on your reasons for moving. Sometimes your circumstance can help to make your choices clear. If you’re relocating for a new job, for instance, that makes your decision easier. Otherwise, you must weigh the benefits that you’ll reap by making the move.
Economic decisions always play a role when it comes to making a move, so you’ll, of course, want to consider the cost of living in Arizona. Taxes, fees, the price of real estate and many other factors determine how far your money will go in any geographic location. You can look at the cost of food, utilities and other day-to-day or year-to-year expenses and make your own calculations. Or, find an online cost-of-living calculator and let it do the work for you.
There’s a great deal of information that you’ll want to consider if you’d like to move to Arizona, and that may take a bit or research on your part. The time you invest in finding the facts will be worthwhile, most likely. Should you decide to make the move you’ll feel more confident about your decision, and you’ll likely have a good idea of what to expect in your new home.
Registering a Car in Arizona and Getting an Arizona Drivers License
It can be challenging to get around almost everywhere without your own source of transportation, so it’s a good idea to ensure that you know the rules of the road and any new regulations that you’ll be obliged to follow. When you’re moving to Arizona, the DMV will likely be among the many stops you’ll want to make as soon as you begin to get settled. Start out by looking at the Arizona Department of Transportation website. It supplies a lot of the information you’ll need to know and can save you a lot of time.
You’re probably most interested in finding out the facts about transferring your car registration, such as how much it will cost and how soon you must make a transfer after becoming a resident of the state. Fortunately, you can find all of that information online.
Another top question for motorists taking up residence in the state is what do I have to do about my driver’s license? Again, you’ll find all of the facts that you need to know on the government site. In addition, you can learn about all of the rules associated with registering a car in Arizona.
Moving to Arizona with Guns
If you’re an outdoorsman and are moving to Arizona with guns, you’ll want to know what regulations and licensing procedures you’re facing.
Arizona residents at least 21 years old can carry a concealed weapon without a permit as of July 29, 2010. Arizona is only the third state in modern U.S. history (after Vermont and Alaska) to allow the carrying of concealed weapons without a permit, and it is the first state with a large urban population to do so.
Arizona is classified as a “shall issue” state. Even though Arizona law allows concealed carry by adults without a permit, concealed carry permits are still available and issued by the Concealed Weapons Permit Unit of the Arizona Department of Public Safety for purposes of reciprocity with other states or for carrying firearms in certain regulated places.
Requirements for issuance include taking a training class (provided by a licensed third party) or hunter education class, submitting a fingerprint card, and paying a $60 fee. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age. New permits are valid for five years. Arizona recognizes all valid out-of-state carry permits.
You may find that the gun laws in Arizona are more lenient or more restrictive than the laws in the state that you are moving from. In either case, it’s a good idea to contact your local law enforcement agency to ensure that you’re getting the most up-to-date rules and regulations, whether you’re moving to Arizona with a handgun rifle or shotgun.
5 Ultimate Tips for Moving to Arizona
Relocating to a new state can be a tricky business, so you’ll certainly benefit by picking up any tips to make moving to Arizona a little easier. Here’s a handful of items that will help you get started:
- Phoenix is one of the top 20 housing markets in the country, due in part to the decrease in real estate prices since 2008.
- There’s no snow to shovel in the winter, but you can drive to ski areas in the winter where there’s plenty of it.
- There are plenty of sports teams to watch, not only the pro teams, but there are 10 MLB spring training camps, too.
- Arizona has turned out some of the biggest names in the music industry – The Gin Blossoms, Jimmy Eat World, The Meat Puppets and Alice Cooper, among many more.
- Arizona never has to deal with “spring forward,” “fall back” because they’re one of only two states that don’t observe Daylight Savings Time.
It’s never exactly easy to make such a big decision as moving, particularly if you plan to move to another part of the country that’s far away. But you’re probably taking the time to think about all of the pluses and minuses that you may encounter. So, when you make up your mind and you have decided to go, and you have your heart set on a new destination that you’ll soon call home, take the leap! Call our Connecticut movers for an estimate and our dependable long distance movers will help you begin your new journey. It could be the first step you’ll take on a long road of exciting adventures. Like with all the relocation we’ve worked on, Trico Long Distance Movers will make yours too a hassle-free experience.
