Free Freight Shipping (continental U.S.)

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.

        Comments about GP5500 GP Series 5,500 Watt Portable Generator:

        I get 4 to 5 power outages a year. I finally decided to purchase this generator. I searched online and in stores every generator available. 5 days after the generator was delivered we had a power failure and the the temp was -5. It fired right up and provided power to 2 space heaters, lights, TV, and satellite system. We turned off 1 heater and cooked dinner in the microwave. The generator worked to perfection in extreme low temperature. The final temperature actually hit minus 9 degrees that night. I have worked with generators in the past and I decided on Generac CP 5500 because of its quality and value for the price. You get what what you pay for and I would recommend this generator to anyone.

        For the money it's a good generator. I had to adjust the carb after starting it and the spring loaded clip that supports the handle in either the up or down position was installed backward. But heres the thing...it was about 1/3 the cost of a honda,dont get me wrong I would love to have a honda but I could not justify the cost.

            This is a very high quality product and the price is much lower than the "off brands" sold at [@] This costs about 100.00 less, but is a much better product. Highly recommended! Don't wait till the power is out - it takes several days to get this due to the shipping method.

            Warranty

            GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS “TWO YEAR” LIMITED WARRANTY FOR GP SERIES PORTABLE GENERATORS


            For a period of two years from the date of original sale, Generac Power Systems, Inc.

Generac will, at its option, repair or replace any part which, upon examination, inspection and testing by Generac or a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Dealer, is found to be defective. Any equipment that the purchaser/owner claims to be defective must be returned to and examined by the nearest Generac Authorized Warranty Service Dealer.

            All transportation costs under the warranty, including return to the factory, are to be borne and prepaid by the purchaser/owner. This warranty applies only to Generac GP Series portable generators and is not transferable from original purchaser. Save your proof-of-purchase receipt. If you do not provide proof of the initial purchase date, the manufacturer’s shipping date of the product will be used to determine the warranty period.

            WARRANTY SCHEDULE

            Consumer applications are warranted for two (2) years. Commercial and Rental applications are warranted for one (1) year or 1000 hours maximum, whichever comes first.

            • Engine- All Components
            • Alternator- All Components

            NOTE:

            For the purpose of this warranty “consumer use” means personal residential household or recreational use by original purchaser. This warranty does not apply to units used for Prime Power in place of utility where utility power service is present or where utility power service does not normally exist. Once a generator has experienced commercial or rental use, it shall thereafter be considered a non-consumer use generator for the purpose of this warranty.


            All warranty expense allowances are subject to the conditions defined in Generac’s Warranty Policies, Procedures and Flat Rate Manual.


            THIS WARRANTY SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE FOLLOWING:
            • Generac built portable generators built prior to May 2008.
            • Generac portable generators that utilize non-Generac replacement parts.
            • Costs of normal maintenance and adjustments.
            • Failures caused by any contaminated fuels, oils or lack of proper oil levels.
            • Repairs or diagnostics performed by individuals other than Guardian/Generac authorized dealers not authorized in writing by Generac Power Systems.
            • Failures due, but not limited, to normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence or improper use. As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and replacement to perform as designed. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
            • Failures caused by any external cause or act of God, such as collision, theft, vandalism, riot or wars, nuclear holocaust, fire, freezing, lightning, earth-quake, windstorm, hail, volcanic eruption, water or flood, tornado or hurricane.
            • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.
            • Products that are modified or altered in a manner not authorized by Generac in writing.
            • Any incidental, consequential or indirect damages caused by defects in materials or workmanship, or any delay in repair or replacement of the defective part(s).
            • Failure due to misapplication.
            • Telephone, cellular phone, facsimile, internet access or other communication expenses.
            • Living or travel expenses of person(s) performing service, except as specifically included within the terms of a specific unit warranty period.
            • Expenses related to “customer instruction” or troubleshooting where no manufacturing defect is found.
            • Rental equipment used while warranty repairs are being performed.
            • Overnight freight or special shipping costs for replacement part(s).
            • Overtime, holiday or emergency labor.
            • Starting batteries, fuses, light bulbs and engine fluids.

             

            THIS WARRANTY IS IN PLACE OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. SPECIFICALLY, GENERAC MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES AS TO THE MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

             

            Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

             

            GENERAC’S ONLY LIABILITY SHALL BE THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF PART(S) AS STATED ABOVE. IN NO EVENT SHALL GENERAC BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF GENERAC’S NEGLIGENCE.

             

            Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You also have other rights from state to state.
