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.

Great value
I am on 24 hour oxygen. I use an electric concentrator. Without it, I’m in trouble. I bought the little 7,5. Kwh. And it’s perfect. Does most of a 2400 Sq Ft. home too. Not heat.

We live in an area that has many outages. it provides great peace of mind. Before the Generac, every time the lights flickered, it scared us. Not now. Our generator will come on automatically if needed.

(Good looking too)

Waiting for a longer power outage
Backup generator has been installed for about 6 months so far. I like the security of having power available when it's needed. My wife thinks it just a white pimple in the yard. So far we've only had a 5 minute outage. Generator worked great! Not long enough to change my wife's mind yet!

This 7500 kvw generator was highly recommended by my electrician who has the same one at his house and did a show and tell for me. I liked all the features,it ran quietly and is priced right for me. The proof will be in the future as it was just installed and has not yet performed for an outage. I live in upstate NY and we have severe winters. I’m anxious to see how well it works in our environment. We lose power frequently.

excellent installation
While the Generac hasn't been used as yet we are very happy with the staff that installed it. Came on time when they said they would, worked neatly and efficiently. Even turned my sprinkler back on when I had forgotten to turn it off for them. Great crew. Hurricane on the way probably so may get a real test.

Very impressed with the quality of this product. Price was very fair also. Waiting for our 1st power outage.

Even with all circuits loaded, it had no problem running all of them.
