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 GP6500E GP Series 6,500 Watt Portable Generator with 20 ft. Convenience Cord:

I bought this generator to use as a backup for any power outages in the winter. We have an OWF (outside wood furnace) and my greatest fear is having a power outage over eight hours in the dead of winter and having the underground water lines freeze and then the lines coming into the basement freeze and then burst...and eventually 230 gallons of water will flow throughout my lower level. Next year I will buy a Generac "stand-by" permanant unit, thus not having to be present to power it up.

There are many things I like about this machine, and the "main" reason is name recognition. I did a thorough job in researching EVERY brand available to the typical home owner. While the engines on ALL the generators I had looked at, including this one made by Generac, are made in China, Generac stands behind their products, that and the fact that their company is in Wisconsin. They have the BEST warranty on the market for the homeowner.

Other reasons for selecting this unit is the mobility. Anyone who buys these heavy units and does NOT purchase the wheel options is nutz. Fortunately the wheels on this unit are standard fare. Don't let anyone kid you, these machines are NOT light by any means. I looked at a competitor's machine long and hard and I read the reviews and most folks had stated that axles were weak along with tires being junk. NOT on this Generac...the axles and tires are stout. This complete machine is well thought out, very substantial and well built.

Another option, besides a wheel package I highly recommend is "electric start." As one author wrote in his review and I concure, who wants to be outside in frigid temps pulling on a rope to start one of these units up? Surely not I. Although I have yet to use this unit other than doing a test run, all I have to do is follow the easy steps for starting the machine, flip a switch and hit the start button.

This unit I purchased is "reconditioned". Often I frown upon buying anything "someone else has had" because of under lying issues. Well believe me, when I look at "brand new" machines in the store and think back of mine..there is NO difference. The warranty is but one year for residential use and this is no sweat to me. If there was anything wrong with this machine before I got it, I would never be able to tell. This is the way to go, if reconditioned units are available..you will save a load of money, which anymore these days is important to many folks.

What things are NOT great about this Generac generator? I only have one complaint...the engine is quite noisy, but then it is just a "portable" generator. Don't plan on using this if you live in a condo or duplex or if you have neighbors close by. The only time the noise will bother me though is when I am outside. I could not bring myself to buying a "competitor's" generator because theirs is very quiet, but for that silence you pay a hefty price.

I highly recommend using CPO as your main source of buying. This is the second product that I have purchased through them and their service IS top notch. Very good communication and rather immediate delivery of item/s purchased. Do what I do, "before" making "any kind of purchase", be it small or large... do your research and look around for the "best" price. Free shipping and zero tax is a huge winner in my book.

Questions & Answers

 

New Vs. Reconditioned

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.

  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by CPO’s Money Back Guarantee;
    New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

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.

  • 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.
