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.

As the #1 selling home standby generator brand, Generac's PowerPact generators provide the automatic backup power you need to protect your home and family during a power outage. Generac's 7.5 kW PowerPact home standby generator is the most affordable, automatic alternative to portable backup power. Connected to your existing LP or natural gas fuel supply, it starts within seconds of sensing power loss - automatically - and runs for as long as necessary until utility power returns. Significantly quieter than a portable generator, it protects the home's most essential circuits, like refrigerators, well pumps and select appliances, without having to manually set up during inclement weather, refuel, or run electrical cords. PowerPact is protected by a durable powder-coat finish galvanneal steel enclosure that is perfect for all weather conditions. Engineered and built in the U.S.A., backed by 24/7/365 customer support and a nationwide dealer network of more than 5,000 strong, the best in the market.
