Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

The Generac looks nice, is relatively quiet, and appears to be a good value.

So far so good.....
Have been looking for a backup for some time. Selection of choosen unit came after meeting installer who help guide decison on unit size. Unit has not been used yet, but given our grid track record will not be too far before needed.

Impressed with size quiet run and ease of use so far. After operation, will re-evaluate and let all know.

Thanks for the piece of mind Generac!

Quality, great service
This is my 3rd Generac...I have had great service from these generators. The installation is very easy and straight forward. I like this new smaller size...when you just need a few lights and such. I will be purchasing another for my son's off-grid cabin as a back-up to his solar. Thanks again Generac.

Awesome!! My unit was online for just 2 days when we had a power outage, 30 seconds later the generator kicked on just as discribed in the literature. Best purchase I ever made, we feel safe and secure in our home.

The Generac holds its own in the Washington weather, perfectly as advertised. It powered up faster than advertised during a power outage(s), the automatic switch was flawless and the generator ran like a champ! Thank you for such an easy choice.
