The city of Glendale has an interesting history to the origin of its name. Following a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in 1883, the townspeople met at the schoolhouse on Verdugo Road to discuss the naming of their town. A young woman painter from Chicago offered the two word name "Glen Dale" and it was approved. "Glendale" means "Valley" in Scottish or Gaelic, and many of the early settlers of the region had emigrated from the British Isles. So that fit very well with the residents at the time. However, mail continued to be addressed to "Verdugo" and it wasn't until eight years later that the Post Office finally began using the name "Glendale". Imagine eight years to get your mail! It doesn't matter how inexpensive it might have been with a wait that long. While our rates are not as low as they were back then, the best shipping rates in Glendale today are provided by the Handle With Care Packaging Store of Glendale, CA.
But it's not just the shipping rates that have made us a household name for shipping, it's the skill, experience and dedication we bring to every shipment that makes us the shipping option of choice for both residents and businesses in the Glendale, CA area. People have come to know that while other shipping companies have size and weight limits, the Handle With Care Packaging Store says bring it on. There is literally nothing that's come our way that we haven't been able to carefully package in such a way as to ensure safe delivery around the block or around the world. Our years of franchise packing and shipping experience comes into play with a special packing technique for every type of item. Take fine art: We carefully protect the item and then place it in a custom crate thus guaranteeing safe arrival. Or bulky office equipment for example: We pad it up, strap it to a pallet, then wrap it securely to be certain it's not damaged in transit. Or delicate family heirlooms: We use a custom foam-in-place packing technique to be sure it arrives in pristine condition -- just as when it left.
