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.

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 our Money Back Guarantee;
    New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

Warranty

GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS "THREE YEAR" LIMITED WARRANTY FOR "AIR-COOLED EMERGENCY AUTOMATIC STANDBY GENERATORS"


For a period of three years from successful activation of the unit (one (1) year or one thousand hours, whichever occurs first, for units in international markets), Generac Power Systems, Inc. (Generac) warrants that its standby generator will be free from defects in material and workmanship for the items and period set forth below. Generac will, at its option, repair or replace any part(s) which, upon examination, inspection and testing by Generac or an Authorized/Certified Generac Service Dealer, is found to be defective.

 

Any equipment that the purchaser/owner claims to be defective must be examined by the nearest Authorized/Certified Generac Service Dealer. This warranty applies only to Generac emergency automatic standby generators used in "Standby" applications as Generac has defined Standby. Scheduled Maintenance, as outlined by the generator owner’s manual, is highly recommended. This Scheduled Maintenance should be performed by an Authorized/Certified Generac Service Dealer. This will verify service has been performed on the unit throughout the warranty period.


WARRANTY SCHEDULE
UNITED STATES AND CANADA YEARS ONE and TWO

Limited comprehensive coverage on mileage, labor and parts listed.


All COMPONENTS YEAR THREE

Limited comprehensive coverage on parts listed


ALL COMPONENTS INTERNATIONAL YEAR ONE

(or 1000 hours, whichever occurs first) – Limited comprehensive coverage on labor and parts listed.


All COMPONENTS

Extended Warranties are not available on units sold into International Markets.


GUIDELINES:
  • 1. Warranty begins upon the successful activation of the unit.
  • 2. Unit should be Registered and Proof of Purchase and Maintenance must be available.
  • 3. Warranty is transferable between ownership of original installation site.
  • 4. Warranty only applies to permanently wired and mounted units.
  • 5. Any and all warranty repairs and/or concerns, must be performed and/or addressed by an Authorized/Certified Generac Service Dealer, or branch thereof. Repairs or diagnostics performed by individuals other than Authorized/Certified Generac Service Dealers not authorized in writing by Generac will not be covered.
  • 6. A Generac Transfer Switch is highly recommended to be used in conjunction with the generator set. If a Non-Generac Transfer Switch is substituted for use and directly causes damage to the generator set, no warranty coverage shall apply.
  • 7. Steel enclosures are warranted against rusting for the first year of ownership only. Damage caused after receipt of generator is the responsibility of the owner and is not covered by this warranty. Nicks, scrapes, dents or scratches to the painted enclosure should be repaired promptly by the owner.
  • 8. All warranty expense allowances are subject to the conditions defined in Generac's General Service Policy Manual.

THIS WARRANTY SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE FOLLOWING:
  • 1. Any unit built/manufacturer prior to April 2010.

  • 6. Units used for Prime Power in place of existing utility power (where utility power is present) or in place of utility power where utility power service does not normally exist.

  • 10. Failures due, but not limited, to normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence or improper installation. As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and fluid replacement to perform as designed. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
  • 11. Failures caused by any external cause or act of God, such as collision, theft, vandalism, riot or wars, nuclear holocaust, fire, freezing, lightning, earthquake, windstorm, hail, volcanic eruption, water or flood, tornado or hurricane.
  • 12. Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.
  • 13. Products that are modified or altered in a manner not authorized by Generac in writing.
  • 14. Covered warranty labor rates are based on normal working hours. Overtime, holiday, or emergency labor costs for repairs outside of normal business hours will be the responsibility of the customer.
