Our service dispatchers may ask you additional questions, and they are just to assist the technician for his call, and to help them in their routing and timing of the calls. The dispatcher will initially give you a specific day that a tech can come, but cannot generally give you a time range until the morning of the call. We encourage all customers to call the morning of a service call to find out the approximate time. At that time (after 9 am) we will be able to give you a 4 hour range of time to expect the technician. Please be aware, circumstances do arise when those time frames need to be adjusted, but we make our best attempt to contact you ahead of time to make sure we still come at a convenient time.
Rancho Cucamonga's first settlers were Native American. By 1200 A.D., Kukamongan Native Americans had established a village settlement in the area around present-day Red Hill, near the city's western border. Kukamonga derives its name from a Native-American word meaning "sandy place."Anthropologists have determined that this cluster of settlers likely belonged to the Gabrielino culture, at one time one of the largest concentrations of Native American peoples on the North American continent. In the 18th Century, following an expedition led by Gaspar de Portola, the land was incorporated into the Mission System established by Father Junipera Serra and his group of soldiers and Franciscan Monks.

After a half-century of political jockeying in the region, the land finally came under the control of Juan Bautista Alvarado, governor of Mexico. On March 3, 1839, Alvarado granted 13,000 acres of land in the area called Cucamonga to Tubercio Tapia, a first-generation Spanish native of Los Angeles, successful merchant, and notorious smuggler. Tapia went on to establish the first winery in California on his newly deeded land. Rancho Cucamonga was purchased by John Rains and his wife in 1858. The Rains family's home, Casa de Rancho Cucamonga, was completed in 1860 and now appears on the National Register of Historic Places.
During the ensuing years the town prospered and grew. In 1887, irrigation tunnels were dug into Cucamonga Canyon by Chinese laborers and the Santa Fe Railroad was extended through the area. Among the town's economic mainstays was agriculture, including olives, peaches, citrus, and, most notably, vineyards. In 1913, the Pacific Electric Railway was extended through Rancho Cucamonga in an effort to improve crop transportation. Several landmarks in existence today pay tribute to the city's multicultural founding. In particular, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel remains as a relic of the area's Mexican agriculture laborers while the Chinatown House stands as a reminder of the Chinese immigrants who labored in constructing the area's infrastructure.
