Some Valuable Links
As we work on the development of the site we come across a number of sites that we feel are of interest to those of us experiencing this winter lifestyle. We also get businesses that design products specifically for snowbirds. While highly seasonal, the number of snowbirds in the area creates huge demand for services and for 'things to do'.
Insurance is one of the early issues you need to deal with when you first purchase that park model. There are certainly many companies to choose from and probably most of them will provide what you need.
We had a Mesa company FOX INSURANCE (click their link on the left) approach us to promote their insurance services. The reason they contacted us is because they specialize in snowbird needs. They provide the whole range of insurance products but what impressed us was their focus on the unique snowbird needs. They even give special attention to the Canadian snowbirds who encounter issues such as insuring a vehicle they buy to use only in the winter months in Arizona.
You can visit their site (click the link on the left) to see what they offer and note thier page for questions you may have about your specific needs.
