8 Things you need to know if you’re new to Phoenix

Welcome to Phoenix!

For whatever reason, you’ve relocated to the Valley of the Sun. You’re moved in, got a permanent job, are not a “snow bird” (in AZ for less than 7 months any calendar year), are planning to register to vote, placed kids in school and are getting acclimated to the dryness.

Here are a few things you need to know:

  1. If you brought a vehicle from out of state, it is the law that you must obtain an Arizona vehicle registration and driver’s license immediately! Visit 1 of our 2 convenient locations and we’ll take care of your vehicle registration in a jiffy!
  2. You should visit a dealership of your vehicle’s make and get it coated. Otherwise the intense sun here in Phoenix will destroy your paint. You’ll see many vehicles around with a tie-dyed look – that’s what causes it.
  3. Drink lots and lots of water! The other day it was 5% humidity. That’s dry. Very Dry. It’ll take your body several months to get used to the dryness. If you’re thirsty, you’re dehydrated. Always have a glass or bottle of water at your desk at work and drink pure water. Juice and soft drinks don’t cut it. Coffee will also dehydrate you so limit your intake. Take plenty of water with you when you hiking.
  4. Wear sunscreen if you go hiking, walking or doing any outside activity. In the summer, don’t go hiking after 10 am. The heat is too intense.
  5. At 6 pm, in the heart of the summer, it’ll still be in the 100s. Heck, at 11 pm it’ll still be in the 100s! I can almost guarantee that wherever you’re from, after 4 pm it usually get’s cooler. Not in Phoenix. That’s the HOTTEST time of the day. The concrete all over the city absorbs the sun’s heat and it radiates back up. And, yes, it’s a DRY HEAT! It’ll feel like you’re in a oven compare to the steam room you may be used to.
  6. View of downtown Phoenix from Shaw Butte by Giselle AguiarThat mist you see in the distance is the infamous Brown Cloud of the Phoenix valley. It’s a mixture of dust and pollution. If you suffer from any respiratory illnesses, watch out for bad air quality days and limit your time outdoors.
  7. Register to vote by Oct. 8, 2012 if you want to vote in the General Election Nov. 6You can register online, but you’ll have to send them eventually some proof of citizenship and residency.
  8. Arizona does not observe Day Light Savings Time. In the summer, we’re the same as Pacific Time and in the Winter, Mountain Time. Some time ago, the powers-that-be decided that with the heat in the summer (see #6 above) we didn’t need an extra hour of daylight!

Have you lost the title to your Mobile Home?

There are a lot of mobile homes or trailers in Arizona where people have lost their titles because they have changed hands many times. (This holds true for vehicles as well.)

If they can’t find the original owner to get a duplicate title with their ID, then they can apply for a Bonded Title Affidavit with step by step instructions.

Some of the steps are:  

  1. Verify if the vehicle or mobile home is stolen or not.
  2. A physical inspection is required and a Bonded Title Affidavit needs to be filled out.
  3. A Motor Vehicle Record needs to be taken to contact any past owners or lien-holders via certified mail.

It sounds difficult, but it can be done. Once the initial steps are taken and a bond amount is set by MVD, then the individual takes the bond amount paperwork to an insurance company for the bond. For a fee we can do the process for you.

Do you have a car that’s undrivable?

abandoned vehicle

A common matter we find is people let their vehicles sit because they are not drivable and don’t bother to advise MVD that the vehicle is not going to be insured as it sits. A simple Deinsure form can be filled out and entered in the system to avoid a suspension and a $50 penalty.

If you see an abandoned vehicle or there is one on your property, contact the police first.

Also, when a person purchases car insurance it is now their responsibility to report it to MVD.  Insurance companies are not required to do so.  If not reported by purchaser, then you may be notified by MVD that you need to get insurance or they will receive a suspension.

Prompt Titles helps company get their registrations straight

truck

An Arizona fence company with several locations throughout the state, had their trucks registered some to the headquarters, some to the individual locations and some even to the owners! They needed all of them registered in the main company name and with the headquarters’ address. And the registrations all renewed at the same time!

The folks at Prompt Titles easily helped them out.

If your Phoenix-based business has several company cars or trucks with different registrations and you’d like to consolidate them, contact Prompt Titles & Registrations.
