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 piece of equipment
Easy to set up, Instructions are very clear, simple starting and operation. Started on first pull and has done so ever since. Could have a little quieter exhaust tone but is not too bad. It saved two freezers during recent hurricane.

Bought it for outage in case of hurricane. One of three in a row, that never affected us. But with an impending move to the mountains, it will be used.

Great Generator
The setup was simple with easy to follow instructions. Once setup was complete, it fired right up. When the power went out during a hurricane the generator had no problems running the refrigerator and some other small items. It is a great generator for the money and does exactly what it is supposed to do.

This thing is built like a tank! I am impressed by the size of the frame and the quality of the build. As advertised it is quite easy to start and run. The only thing that I would change would be to add a fuel cutoff so the carb could be run dry for storage. Not a deal breaker though.

Very well made and easy to maintain
This unit is replacing a 14 year old gen. I was shocked to find that most of the replacement parts for the other unit are unavailable. Generac has been around for quit a while and have a great reputation for service and dependability. I got it home, took about 30 minutes to get it ready. It fired up first pull and ran for about an hour under load for testing. No problems working great.

Solid generator. So far so good.
Right out of the box theRS5500 is impressive. Fit and finish is impeccable. The unit is heavy for sure but it's not a toy so I expected that. After putting the oil in and adding gas the power dial made starting quite simple. What a great idea to put the choke, run and gas shutoff in one convenient dial.

Once the generator was warmed up a little I plugged in some light loads and the tone of the engine never changed. I plan to test it further by plugging in a big refrigerator/freezer to see how it handles a bigger load. I have every confidence this Generac will be up to that task as well.

Unit starts easy and holds the load
This RS5500 unit runs great and easy start. Unit keeps up with the demand you put on it. Never stop or bogged down with power demand. Would recommend this to everyone.

Good value.
The Generator was very easy to assemble and prepare for operation. It started quickly and easily and ran smooth and surprisingly quiet. The included cable is a big boost in the value.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
