Guide for moving from Boise to Phoenix

Free Moving Estimate

    Moving from Boise to Phoenix is an interstate relocation, one that will require at least a 14-hour drive. For this reason, you might want to look into professional services that reputable movers Boise can offer. While you can definitely pull off a DIY relocation, going with a moving company will make things a lot simpler and more enjoyable. Relocations on this scale can be quite complicated, regardless of the size of your household or office. You may also want to learn more about what to expect in your new city. In this article, we are going to guide you through the process and explain how to make it easier.

    Everything you need to know when moving from Boise to Phoenix

    It is important to follow all the safety procedures, as well!

    Basically, there are several things that you need to do:

    • Learn more about both cities
    • Find the appropriate neighborhood
    • Prepare for the moving process

    While this may sound overly simplified, all of these things take time and effort. But if you want to make the most out of your relocation, you will do well to go through them all. Before you even start contacting some of the interstate movers Idaho has on offer, there’s some research to be done. The best place to start is the city you will be moving out of. You need to know what you enjoy, so you can try and find a similar neighborhood in Phoenix or choose an entirely different one. It is up to you and your preferences.

    Boise statistics

    The city of Boise is generally known as one of the best places to live in Idaho. It offers a dense suburban vibe, with plenty of amenities such as restaurants, bars, coffee shops, etc. There are around 230,000 people living in the city, who earn a median individual income of around $31,500. This is slightly higher than the national average, showing that the city is definitely in a good place.

    The housing situation is not ideal, however, with the median price of single-family homes being around $350,000. Furthermore, the cheap property is in high demand and quite scarce. The renting situation is somewhat better, though, the average rent being around $950. 

    Boise also offers great opportunities in the way of outdoor activities, nightlife, health&fitness, and low commute times. The job market is not in the best shape, however, and could use some improvement.

    Phoenix statistics

    Moving on to the city where you will be relocating to, the city of Phoenix has a considerably larger population (around 1,633,000) and is the fifth-largest city in the US. However, the entire area feels like a mix of urban and suburban, which means that you will not need that much adapting.

    The city of Phoenix may need some time getting used to.

    Key points of living in such a large city are exceptional diversity, amazing nightlife options, as well as great public and private schools, and a sizeable job market. As far as economics go, Phoenix residents earn a median income of about $30,650. While this is actually lower than in Boise, you have to realize that the sample size is a lot larger. There are many more people living in poverty in Phoenix, simple as that.

    Even so, the median home price steadily increases. It is now at a record high of $450,000 for a single-family detached home. If you are basing your decision purely on economical factors and home prices, you might very well stay in Boise.

    But you can’t simply look at any statistic and base your decision on that. There are a lot of advantages and unique opportunities present in Phoenix that you simply cannot get in a smaller place like Boise. Let’s explore what is it like living in such a big city, what are the pros and cons?

    Pros and cons of living in Phoenix

    If you choose to make Phoenix your new home, you will be able to benefit from:

    • Strong economy
    • Great arts and culture scene
    • Amazing outdoor activities
    • 300 days of sunshine (per year)
    • Easy navigation around the city

    But there are some things that you will not be as thrilled about, such as:

    • Low salaries
    • Dust storms
    • Limited public transport options

    The largest take from these pros and cons is the disparity between a strong economy and low salaries. You would think that since Phoenix is one of the largest emerging industrial markets in the country, that there will be ample opportunities for employment. And you would be right, it is just that those jobs are not paying really well. Even so, most of the residents are actually satisfied with their lifestyle, as Phoenix also has somewhat lower living costs than the other cities of similar size. Even a small salary can go a long way in Phoenix.

    Finding the best neighborhood

    Sometimes, there is more to a neighborhood than visible to the naked eye.

    In a city as large as Phoenix, there is a huge number of options when it comes to choosing a neighborhood for your new home. You may want to look further than simply the square footage of the house, and consider all the surroundings as well. The last thing you want is to hire piano movers Boise to relocate your instrument and then find out that the neighborhood has a no-music policy. Granted, the chances of that happening are quite slim but they are not non-existent. It is best if you take some time to conduct additional research, just to make sure.

    Moving from Boise to Phoenix – The relocation process

    At Peasley Moving & Storage, we talk about the relocation process a lot. That is why we are simply going to mention it here, alongside some moving services Boise that might make it easier. In a nutshell, here’s what you will need to do:

    • Set a moving budget
    • Create a moving checklist
    • Enlist help from family/friends
    • Organize your time and efforts
    • Obtain packing supplies
    • Declutter
    • Book a moving company ahead of time

    And that’s about it. Additionally, when moving from Boise to Phoenix, you might want to consider renting a storage unit. This can help you be more flexible throughout the ordeal and will allow you to remodel/renovate your home before you move in. If you need any additional information on the relocation process itself, feel free to get in touch with us directly. We will be glad to explain it in as much detail as you wish!
