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.

Very good unit - ran my whole house through Hurricane Harvey
Had the unit installed just before Hurricane Harvey hit Texas. The automated transfer switch is a blessing. When the power got knocked out at 2:30 AM it kicked in immediately. So responsive I didn't even need to reset the timer on my coffee pot or alarm. It performed perfectly for over 32 hours. We run on propane and followed our propane suppliers recommendation to increase the tank size to 500 gallons

Had this installed last week right before Hurricane Irma came thru Florida. Was the only house in neighborhood that had power thru out the entire storm. Had AC, hot water, stove and all lights and outlets working. Even had pool pump running. (All other pools in neighborhood turned black or green) Had neighbors plugging extension cords into our outlets to run Refrigerators and a neighbor running his wife oxygen machine from our house. Best investment we've ever made. All my neighbors now have my installers name and number and i'm sure they will be calling!!!!

Operated exactly as it was supposed to and ran quietly! 5 Stars
We had the unit installed to replace an older outdated unit. This new unit was powerful and installed in 4 hours! We were hit by Hurricane Irma two days later and of course lost power. The unit cranked right up and provided the whole house with all the power we needed. It ran both large a/c units and the water pump along with everything else necessary to be comfortable. It runs very quiet for such a powerful unit. I recommend this unit with no reservations. It ran for three days straight before the power was restored. Life saver! thank you.

Installed just four days before Hurricane Irma impacted our area, our new Generac 22KW generator performed flawlessly, keeping us in touch (TV, internet), comfortable (heat), and well fed (stove, oven, refrigerators and freezers). No one wants to lose power, but when it happens it's so comforting to know the Genereac will support all our needs!

Good looking machine and high quality.
It's relatively easy to hook up with advanced electrical skills. It started the first try. When ran through a load test it preform as expected. I would recommend it to anybody that is looking for a reliable whole home back up generator.

This product works wonderfully. It got a good test with Irma
This generator was purchased in October 2016 it took 3 months to get permits for installation. It worked perfectly during Irma! Ran for 33 hours. We were the only ones on the street that had power. A great product. A plus to the value of property.

peace of mind now
Unit installation went well. Think some improvement if the prep are for hook-up done so the electric company come once , shuts down a nd 10 minutes or so later re-connects rathe than leaving the customer w/o power for most of the day.

BEST STANDBY THERE IS
This generator is the best investment we have ever made. It is quiet, it is cute, it gives you a peace of mind. It runs like a champ, does not even falter when A/C kicks on. You would think you still have power from the power company when it is on, only way you know it is on, if you go outside and hear it running. We have a portable XP8000 that we absolutely love, and big supporters of Generac products. Would highly recommend the 22K. You will not regret purchasing a Generac Stand by Home Generator.
