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 three different contractors came out for my estimate, I chose the one I was most comfortable with and I'm happy with my decision. My biggest fear was that it wouldn't be done before Halloween, bad history with Halloween. On the Fifth anniversary of Superstorm Sandy my home was filled with people because we were all going to wait out the latest storm together and they were glad I had my new home generator, just in case. It's amazing and it gives me real peace of mind and I know my family will be okay. I was also lucky to get the Heroes of Sandy special.

I've had the generac installed for two monthes now. Haven't had a real power outage yet but I have cut power to the house. The generac started up and ran great for the 15 minute overall test that I gave it. The bi-weekly 12 minute start-up tests have been running fine. I did have the mobile link accessory installed. It's nice to get texts and emails about the device when it runs. It also gives me information on future maintenance-when it's needed. I am disappointed that generac hasn't sent me any warranty documents yet.

What can I say except after much blinking of FPL the generator jumped in. FABALOUS !!! No muss no fuss no problems. Have to say that I used a lot less propane than I thought I would for 5 days of no city power. No lugging of gas cans or all the stink or mess, that is not Generac which is wonderful. Excellent Very quiet and not one problem or hiccup. Wish I could have afforded a bigger unit but no loss of freezers or fridge contents, had lights, microwave and electric fry pan at the ready and hot brewed coffee in the mornings. Works for me.

Super Value Unit !
Just activated my 9 KW Generac unit. The Manual and tech support personnel were both very helpful in wiring and setup procedures. I've had extensive electrical and plumbing experience and do not recommend the unit wiring and plumbing be tackled if you are a novice.

The unit runs flawlessly and operates as advertised! A Great investment and a boon in times of need!

Takes away the worry.
After losing power on numerous occasions and for an extended period for the last one it was time to get serious about confronting the problem. Running out for gas and filling the old generator was getting a little wearing. Now, with a propane setup and auto switching we can carry on without giving it a second thought. The 7030 is a nice unit and we look forward to years of satisfying performance and comfortable living even in outages. We only needed 7 KW but opted for the 9 KW just in case we wanted to add. It's easy to add with the switching unit we have. Life is good!

We just had this generator installed recently, so far our power has not gone out so we have not had to rely on the backup generator. I purchased the 5-year maintenance agreement and am happy that I don't have to do anything to have the backup generator do its thing. Having the automatic operation of the transfer switch is a true blessing.
