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.

Very good unit - ran my whole house through Hurricane Harvey
Had the unit installed just before Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. The automated transfer switch is a blessing. When the power got knocked out at 2:30 AM it kicked in immediately. So responsive I didn't even need to reset the timer on my coffee pot or alarm. It performed perfectly for over 32 hours. We run on propane and followed our propane suppliers recommendation to increase the tank size to 500 gallons

Unit installation went well. Think some improvement if the prep are for hook-up done so the electric company come once , shuts down a nd 10 minutes or so later re-connects rathe than leaving the customer w/o power for most of the day.

BEST STANDBY THERE IS
This generator is the best investment we have ever made. It is quiet, it is cute, it gives you a peace of mind. It runs like a champ, does not even falter when A/C kicks on. You would think you still have power from the power company when it is on, only way you know it is on, if you go outside and hear it running. We have a portable XP8000 that we absolutely love, and big supporters of Generac products. Would highly recommend the 22K. You will not regret purchasing a Generac Stand by Home Generator.

Great piece of mind for the price
Having a basement, it is nice to know that when you have an electric outage, the sump pumps are available for service.

Worth the price for peace of mind.
As an older couple this sure beats the big generator we had to push out and set up. Now we can just sit back and relax and let the generator take over.

This product was perfect for our new mountain home
We just built a cabin in the Washington State. This generator was perfect as a back-up system. We have it all hooked up and tested. Everything went great - we had no issues with the sub. Great product. Would highly recommend.

Works great - No issues
Had the Generac 22KW air cooled generator installed in March after considerable market research. Picked Generac because it offered the largest, air-cooled wattage, automatic load shedding, and because of market share (over 70%), which guarantees repair parts and service availability in the future. To date, the generator has had no issues. Weekly automatic test runs have worked flawlessly. Only have experienced one short power outage since installation. The generator kicked on immediately and transferred the house load perfectly. Could not be happier right now.
