Moving to Phoenix

So, you are thinking about moving to Phoenix. From the 300 days of sunshine to the sports scene, there are countless reasons to move to Phoenix. Arizona is one of the best states in the country, but nothing is perfect. We have five tips you need to know before moving to Phoenix.

Drink Water

There is no skirting around the fact that Phoenix is hot from June through September, but mid-October through May makes up for that with perfect weather. No matter what time of the year it is, be sure to drink plenty of water. It takes a while for your body to adjust to the dry weather, and with low humidity, you might not realize you are sweating.

Get Full Glass Protection 

When transferring your automobile insurance to Arizona, make sure you add full glass protection on your car. You might wonder why? Phoenix is full of rocks, and they get kicked up all the time on the highway. Don’t be too surprised if you get a chip or crack in your windshield when you move to Phoenix - it is super common.

No Time Change

What? Phoenix has its own time zone, and the city stays the same time all year round. No leaping forward or falling back.

Don’t Ditch Your Coat

Everyone talks about the heat in Phoenix, which is true. The summer heat averages around 105° and your body gets used to the high temperatures. Once the heat passes and drops below 70°, it is going to feel surprisingly cold. Sounds crazy, we know! Keep your coats because you will need them.

Haboobs!

Ha-what? If you are moving to Phoenix, you will experience these during monsoon season. They are dust storms that occur when winds from dying thunderstorms push downward and pick up sand and dirt to create low visibility.
