Table of Contents

1. WHY THE GRAND CANYON STATE?

For each individual, the decision to move consists of many factors. Whether it be for a new job, better place to raise a family, growth opportunities, do-over or even retirement, confidence in the final decision comes from reviewing moving to Arizona pros and cons. For those considering moving from southern California or the Pacific Northwest to the great state of Arizona, the following are a few highlights:

  • The cost of living in Arizona is 5% lower than the national average. 1

 

  • Arizona employment opportunities have risen with a pre-pandemic growth rate of 2.7% making Arizona the 3rd among all states in job growth. 2

 

  • Arizona is one of the top 10 states to start a small business due to its tax climate, consumer spending within the state, labor costs and climate. 3

 

  • Sunshine nearly all year long with a dry climate lends to low moisture for improved respiratory benefits. 4

 

2. COST AND BUDGETING

When you begin exploring which moving options are the right fit for you, a few important things to consider are timing, availability, and cost. At Get Simple Box, moves are broken down into 3 categories: local moving, region to region moving, and long distance moving.

3. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO MOVE TO ARIZONA?

Moving across states can be done during any season.  We generally recommend a spring/fall move when trucks are more readily available and the temperatures are cooler. July and August are typically very busy months with school starting up and Monsoons that occur at times. Because of this, these two months are generally a more difficult season to move in.

4. CITY SPOTLIGHT

When you think of Arizona, you likely think of the capital, Phoenix. However Arizona’s beauty transcends to numerous cities.

  • Phoenix. The state’s capital for all the fun reasons – large size, plenty of things to do, especially for the ultimate sports fan with 4 professional sports teams.

 

  • Tucson. Mountain views. Cleaner air quality. Plenty of recreational activities from running, biking and even to rock climbing.

 

  • Scottsdale. Milder winters. Better Public Schools. Numerous golf courses. Scottsdale is a place to call home.

 

  • El Mirage. Home to our Simple Box location. We love El Mirage because it’s near the Sonoran Desert with affordable real estate. But what we really love about  El Mirage is the community – it’s a friendly community that is a quiet, safe place to live and work.

 

  • Buckeye. Fastest growing city in the country. Residents love Buckeye for its quaint nature and slightly lower housing prices. Looking for things to do in Buckeye? The Buckeye  Valley Chamber of Commerce is a helpful resource for local business news and things to do in the area.

5. FUN THINGS TO DO IN ARIZONA

Whether you are sports enthusiast, nature lover, or thrill seeker, Arizona has something fun to offer for each interest.

  • Attend a Game. Arizona is home to the Arizona Coyotes, Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns and Arizona Cardinals.There is a team for every kind of sports fan!

 

  • Visit a National/State Park. Top of the list are Grand Canyon National Park, Petrified Forest National Park, breathtaking views of Sedona, Chiricahua National Park and Canyon de Chelly National Monument and Coconino National Forest.

6. A PROSPECTIVE FUTURE

Arizona has its goals set in technology and innovation. “Arizona is projected to add 22,753 more technology jobs by 2030, a 20% growth rate, and one of the fastest in the nation.” 5  With advanced plans for growth, the future is bright for Arizona residents.
