Moving from New York to Arizona

“I wish I could move to some peaceful desert”!

If you’ve ever had this thought, don’t worry. Faced with a busy and densely crowded city like New York, it’s normal to want to slow down and move somewhere else. The concrete jungle habitat may need to be replaced with a more natural one.

Arizona can be a perfect fit to make your wishful thinking a reality. Its long summers, beautiful nature, vast space, and significantly lower cost of living sound tempting.

Moving from New York to Arizona

Speaking of the desert

Once Arizona is mentioned, the Grand Canyon immediately comes to mind. It is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the country. With its rare blend of colors, desert views, and recreational space, it’s proof of the powerful forces of nature. Spectacular erosive landscapes, the turbulent waters of the Colorado River, the beautiful rock layers, and the undisturbed original ecosystem have inspired people for centuries. Moving near this natural miracle can be breathtaking and inner-peace-bringing at the same time.

The Mojave and Sonoran deserts can be viewed from the heights of the canyon reefs. Their landscape includes colorful cactus plants with blooming red flowers. These deserts occupy a large space along California, Nevada, and Arizona and are associated with Native American tribes, who used to live there, as well as in the Grand Canyon surroundings. Their legacy has been preserved until this day. Therefore, you will not only feel connected to nature in this area, but also to history and native cultures.

300+ days of sun

Arizona’s geography has multiple landscapes of various latitudes, which bring a diverse climate. The temperatures in different parts can potentially go as low as negative 40 degrees and as high as 128 degrees Fahrenheit. There are times when extreme temperatures make it unbearable to stay outdoors. The humidity goes from close to zero in the low deserts to over 50 percent during the monsoon season in higher areas.

Nevertheless, the localized climate has one common denominator: sunny days. More than 300 days of sun lighten and warm the state, making it a favorable destination for the so-called snowbirds. Yes, you read it right: more than 300 sunny days a year. No more of the persisting NY snow. The dreamland for a sun lover!

Lower cost of living and affordable housing

While New York state is more expensive in general, if you move specifically from NYC to Phoenix, AZ you will experience a contrasting view of your finances. NYC is 80.5% more expensive than Phoenix. This cost is not only visible in the expenses for food and utilities, but also the real estate.

The housing cost is the most significant contributing factor that lowers the overall cost of living in Arizona. For example, a median home price in Phoenix is 184% cheaper than in NYC. So, maybe, by settling in the Copper State, you may finally be able to own a home you have been dreaming about.

Arizona’s growing economy

New York is a vibrant state, with almost 20 million people living in a surface area twice as small as Arizona. Its economy is highly developed, and regardless of your profession, you can find a job there. However, Arizona is not to be underestimated.

The job growth in Arizona is increasing, and the outlook is positive, projecting more than 40% of the increase in employment. The most developing sectors include retail, health, and transportation.

Moreover, new companies such as Uber or existing businesses such as PetSmart or Hensley&Co are headquartered in Arizona and employ thousands of people. Depending on your profession, you can have a more detailed look at which companies to consider working for in AZ here.

Great habitat for car enthusiasts

If you are a car enthusiast, you must have heard of at least one car event in Arizona. From Speedway car races to classic car auctions, Arizona knows how to satisfy car enthusiasts.

January is considered to be the car auction season in AZ. For example, on January 16-17th 2020, RM Sotheby’s will hold the 21st annual car sale in Phoenix. This auction has sold notable cars during the previous years. For example, the Porsche 911, sold for $654’000, was the highlight of the 2019 event.

Barrett Jackson’s collector car auctions have been taking place for nearly 50 years. Each January evolves into a lifestyle event for all car collectors. This year, it will be held from Jan 11 – 19th.

If you plan to attend or buy your landmark car at any of these events, Corsia Logistics offers its expertise in shipping your car from the auction location to your place of destination.

Shipping your car from New York to Arizona

moving from New York to Arizona

By now, you have probably realized that due to Arizona’s geography and vast space, a car is a necessity. In NY, you can use your vehicle in combination with well-functioning public transportation. In the Copper State, you will need to make full use of your car.

Hence, when moving, shipping your car from New York to Arizona makes total sense.

To ship your car with peace of mind you need the right auto transport partner. Research and read customer reviews. Then call the companies to discover their competence and customer service level. Ask questions about how auto transport works and what is the real cost to ship a car. A trustworthy company will give you all the answers.

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!

Truly positive experience

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.
