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.

Off to a good start...
Having suffered through a multi-year problem with a competitor's product issues, I went searching for a reliable alternative. I was very professionally guided in my search by TSE Power Solutions and chose a 48KVW diesel unit from Generac. The planning and execution of the installation were exceptionally well handled and went as scheduled. Start-up proceeded flawlessly as well and we are now set to go. I am confident this will be a much better, long term solution that will fit our needs.

Installed this during a rebuilt with doing so kept in mind during planning. No other service disconnect needed in my area and re-located my electrical system around it. Not had the chance to have it function as it should, but looking forward to not having to lift a finger for it to do so! Have the same at my Mom's home on a 16KW and most of the time she doesn't know power has switched over.
