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.

Easy To Use
The generator itself is very high quality. It's well built, laid out so it is easy to use. The one and only criticism I have found is the owners manual, it is very vague, leaving you scratching your head. It would be easier to understand how to operate without the manual.

Love my new GP8000E Generator
Well built generator, and very quiet running. I am very happy with my new Generac GP8000E generator. Started and ran the first time. Owner's manual is easy to read and understand. I give it a five stars overall rating.

Keeping our home livable post Maria!!!
Live in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Bought the unit 1 and a half years ago, but have been using it daily since Irma and Maria hit. I don't have transfer switch installed, so i am using cables going out of the generator straight to the equipment i am using. Powering four refrigerators, two of which are for neighbors, also two fans, two tvs with DVD player and washing machine, even wife has been able to blow dry her hair!!!! Situation is complicated by the destruction of the hurricanes, but this machine and its reliable performance is keeping me sane!!!! I can get upwards of 12 plus hours on a full tank. Easy maintenance and although it makes noise, it is reliable, powerful and great value. Would definitely recommend.

Good for the price, but loud.
Generator started immediately the first time. No issues with operation. It is loud, and these models have no idle control so it's loud load or unloaded. For the price and for use as a backup it will suffice. Long-term quality and reliability will be determined in the future. But I bought Generac over the other manufacturer's due to commercial reputation. For the price, we'll see...

Great product
Had to replace the generator I left behind in my previous home after 14 years of use. It was a Generac. I looked at several other brands, but settled on the Generac because of the reliability, wattage and value. Received it yesterday, assembled the wheels, feet and battery, and it started on the first try. Thanks.Tim31

A very well-built machine
The last hurricane that grazed central South Carolina sent everyone running to the generator stores. We live in the country with a well, horses and an aging mother living in the guest house. I bought an off-brand 7000w unit then the same day bought the Generac. I could see the engineering quality as I was readying it for its first start. We lost power, hooked up the Generac and forgot about the storm. Very, Very loud machine but it performed flawlessly. Never took the other off-brand unit out of its box so I returned it. We're buying a second Generac 8000e for our small business.
