Moving from Chicago to Arizona

Moving from Chicago to Arizona

The perks of living in the Grand Canyon state are numerous. And if you are moving from Chicago to Arizona, you are in for an extra treat. In the southwestern state, sunshine and warm weather are a guarantee.

But every successful transition requires a good plan. In this post, we will go over a few most common questions and share a few tips for relocating, including shipping of your vehicle from Chicago to Arizona.

What is it like to live in Arizona, as compared to Chicago?

Sun and beautiful wilderness will immediately catch your eye once you set foot in Arizona. Prepare to trade cold and snowy Chicago winters for more than 300 days of sun. And even though it snows in the higher Arizona altitudes, that is not the case in the southern and western low parts of the state.

Speaking of the lowland, if you like golf, then Arizona will not disappoint. It is one of the most popular sports in the state, with more than 300 golf courses available. If you want to practice something more physically demanding, you can always go mountain biking, hiking, rafting, or swimming.

In addition to all the leisure activities, another perk of living in Arizona is the lower average commute time. Of course, it varies in different areas, but even in the main cities, such as Phoenix, it is twice less than the average commute time in Chicago.

At the same time, everything in Arizona is spread out, making car ownership a necessity. Having said that, we invite you to learn how shipping your vehicle from Chicago to Arizona works, should you decide to move with a car.

Why do people move to Arizona?

Arizona has been a popular moving destination for many Americans during the last decade. This is also reflected in its growing population rate, which is higher than the national average. What makes this state so attractive for people all across the country?

In addition to natural beauties, other major reasons are good employment opportunities and lower living costs. Jobs in Phoenix, Arizona, for instance, are projected to increase by 48,2% over the next 10 years. And among the largest sectors fuelling the state’s economic growth are manufacturing, copper mining, and tourism.

The cost of living is also lower than in Chicago. For instance, Tucson has a 14.3% lower cost of living, thanks to lower housing and transportation costs. Renting an apartment there will cost you $500 less on average, than in the Windy City.

What is the cost of moving my belongings from Chicago to Arizona?

The final cost of your move will depend on factors such as the weight of the furniture, the exact distance, and additional services such as packing.

For instance, if you move your 2-3 bedroom house to Phoenix and request packing, it will cost you between $7,000-$10,000. However, if you do the packing yourself, the cost will range between $5,000 and $7,000. So, you may want to think about asking some friends to help you move out and save those extra bucks.

In case you need help finding a reliable moving company, you can contact us at Corsia Logistics, and we will be able to give you some options, which have received positive feedback from our previous customers.

How to ship a car from Chicago to Arizona?

If you already own a car, consider shipping it to Arizona. It may be the most cost-effective option given the distance between Chicago and your destination in the Grand Canyon State.

Remember that driving a car across the country not only requires time, but also a great deal of planning and preparation. This is translated into lodging expenses, potential car repair and maintenance costs, and tolls, among other possible expenses.

To ship your car, finding a reliable car shipping company is the first step. You can go through customer reviews and learn about car shipping online. Many companies will offer you a free quote, but keep in mind that not always, the cheapest quote is the best option. In fact, the cost to ship a car depends on a variety of factors, such as distance, type of carrier, make and model of your vehicle, supply and demand on a given route, as well as how soon you need your car.

Should you have any questions about car shipping or need a quote, do not hesitate to get in touch with the Corsia Logistics team. Our vehicle relocation experts are experienced in offering high-quality service, which is also testified by our 5-star customer reviews.

You can reach us via our online chat or phone at (818) 850-5258. We will make sure that shipping your car to Arizona will go smoothly and conveniently for you. Thank you!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
