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.

After hurricane Harvey hit us we had no power. My daughter bought this generator for me before heading back to the house. The generator worked like a champ. It powered my neighbors refrigerator and freezer along with mine. We were even able to add several fans and lights. The generator ran for six days non stop till power was restored without any issues. Very happy with this product.

Bought this for Hurricane IRMA. I lost power and this generator ran the Refrigerator and Freezer, Satellite TV, TV, 6 floor fans, and 7 lights, microwave, toaster over, toaster and COFFEE pot. It still had plenty of power to give as I used only about half the 5500 watts, and it ran 12 hours on a tank of gas and it took less than 5 gallons to fill it full each time. I ran this for 118 hours before getting our power back and it never let me down. This is a great product.

Resilient. Easy. Reliable.
I bough the RS5500 about this time last year, the day before Matthew came to Charleston. I bought it strictly as an insurance policy expecting to return it in a few days; we had no power for five days. I filled it with oil and gas and it started on the first pull. I will only ever buy Generac equipment from now on.

Comfortable during Irma outtage.
I got lucky and purchased my RS5500 when the store I visited was almost out of stock. Trying to prepare for Hurricane Irma a few days prior to the storm hitting, generators were in very short supply. I was very excited to see the units available at the store were Generac! I got the unit home and with minimal time and effort, got the wheels and handle installed. I poured in the included oil, fueled up, and gave her a test run while using some power tools as I was trying to finish boarding up my home. All tools, including saws and an air compressor worked flawlessly within the generators capacity. I was very impressed with the look of the unit and ease of start with only one pull! This will be good for the wife as well when I'm not home. Now the storm is passed and the morning after, the RS5500 fired right up with one pull yet again. I am able to power my refrigerator, my neighbors refrigerator, tv, microwave, and a few other fans, lights and charger accessories. The included 4 way 240v cord was very useful and a great addition with the purchase! Needless to say, this generator makes life a thousand times better while we wait for our power grid to be restored. Last year during Hurricane Matthew, the week long outtage was miserable for the family. Myself and the neighbors are very excited to have my new Generac RS5500 chugging away in the driveway providing us power!

Still good today
Bought a Generac 23 yrs. ago. Still running strong. Gave it to my son so I bought another after bad weather rolled thru and knocked out power. Went and bought a bigger one. Got home, put oil and gas in. Started after 3 pulls and ran for almost 4 hrs. with no problems. Hope this one last as long. Also have a Generac pressure washer thats going great.

Flawless - 2 major hurricanes and many field trips later
Florida is notorious for storm outages. I used this RS5500 for Hurricane Matthew, then again this weekend for Irma. When I get my power back, it gets lent to others in need. This unit has over 80 hours on it and runs flawless! Though the power dial already has a gas shutoff, I still installed my own so I can run the carb dry before storage. I have also taken this out in the field camping, used it to power a welder where there was no power, run my compressor and other tools at a job site, you name it. This is my second Generac generator, great running unit. Extended-run steel tank makes this very versatile unit. Features like low oil shutdown protection, built in hour meter, it's ready to go and well quipped! The solid plastic wheels are great, no more flats!

We had been without power for 3 days when we borrowed a generator from a friend and on day 4 it went out. We were just at the store looking for something to fix it, when e saw the display for the General RS5500. This is an outstanding product that looks great, has a get price and came in clutch during a time of need. My family and I truly appreciate the value and performance of this product.

This product worked perfect.
I bought the RS-5500 to get us through hurricane Harvey in Rockport TX. We were without city power for 13 days. This unit worked perfectly and was very fuel efficient. I changed the oil at the 30 hour mark. Then again at the 130 hour mark. The unit had over 150 hours on it when I shut it down when city power came back on. We have frequent power outages so I'm confident my family and I will get a lot of use out of this unit.
