Generator Mart is a generator and accessories sales website, not a delivery agent.  While we only work with the most reputable and reliable carriers, once a generator leaves our dock doors, the responsibility for safe and timely delivery falls on the carrier.  

Turnaround

All orders are shipped as quickly as inventory becomes available, and may be subject to supply chain constraints. Each supplier has different shipping lead times and we will relay the most recent information on ship times and update the website accordingly. All ship times are subject to change on the website without notice.

Local Pickup

Local pickup is available for in stock items at our facility in Brighton, Colorado. Products eligible for local pickup will have a “Local Pickup” option under the shipping options at checkout. The customer will be notified by email when the order is ready for pick up at the facility. Customers must provide a physical/digital copy of the order receipt, or a valid form of ID when picking up orders. Orders must be picked up by the party placing the order; no 3rd parties will be allowed to pick up orders placed through Generator Mart.

Items selected for local pickup will be held for 14 days at the warehouse. If an order has not been picked up by the customer within 14 days of order placement, the order will be automatically shipped to the address on file. Mixed orders with out of stock items included can be selected for local pickup, with the item of stock items being automatically shipped when the item has been re-stocked.

Pick up must be done during Generator Mart’s hours of operation. These hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 7am-4pm MST

Order Tracking

When a tracking number is provided by the shipping carrier, we will update your order with the tracking information. Please note that some orders (generally smaller accessories) using 1st Class USPS mail will not have tracking numbers.

Shipping Rates

The rate charged for the shipping of your order is based on the weight of your products, and your location. Before the final checkout page you will be shown what the cost of shipping will be, and you will have a chance to not place your order if you do not agree with shipping charges.  Some carriers charge extended and/or remote area surcharges for delivering goods to difficult to access regions. The Generator Mart team works hard to keep rates low but surcharges will be passed along to the customer when incurred on a shipment.

Free Shipping

Free shipping is available on orders over $200 within the contiguous USA. Shipments to Alaska and Hawaii do not qualify for free shipping, and will have shipping charges automatically calculated at checkout. Carriers may still charge extended delivery and/or remote area surcharges for difficult to access regions.

Free shipping is shipped through UPS Ground with no additional package insurance. All other shipping options include UPS Package Protection, covering the complete value of the package. For more information on package insurance, see UPS terms here: https://www.ups.com/us/en/help-center/sri/protection-package.page

Packages selected with expedited shipping will be shipped from the Generator Mart facility within 24-48 hours from the time of purchase. Generator Mart will not refund any shipping charges selected by the customer due to the carrier not delivering in the specified timeframe.

Back Orders and Partial Shipments

If an item goes on back order we will ship you the part of your order that is in stock. When the back-ordered item becomes available, we will ship you the rest of your order. You will not be charged any additional shipping and handling for the second shipment.

Pre-Orders

Products with extended wait times can be placed on a “pre-order”, which allows you to reserve a unit ahead of it becoming available for shipment. During checkout, you can select to enter your payment info at the time of purchase, or select “Pay Later” and enter payment when the product becomes available. When the affected product is back in stock, Generator Mart will notify all customers with active pre-orders.

Pre-orders that have been pre-paid will begin shipping immediately after the product is in stock and the customers have been notified. If there is any issue with the payment completion, the customer will be notified by Generator Mart.

Pre-orders completed with the “Pay Later” option selected will have 72 hours from the time of the notification email being sent to complete payment of their order. If payment is not completed within 72 hours, the order will be cancelled, and the product will be shipped to the next active pre-order customer. This is done to prevent a back log of in-stock product.

Calculate Your Minimum Generator Size

Additional Sizing Factors to Consider

Sizing your standby generator correctly is critical because it ensures that all of your necessary appliances will work properly during an emergency.

Identify Your Power Needs

If your electricity goes out, generators provide power to keep your essential household electrical systems running. GeneratorMart generators are reliable, affordable, and designed to give you years of worry-free service.

Choose a generator with enough power to handle all the essential circuits in your home, plus a few conveniences. The easiest way is to add up the wattage of all essential circuits, add 20%, then choose a generator that meets or exceeds that number.

Determine Power Requirements

To determine power requirements, write down your power requirements in watts found on your devices. You can use the below table to help identify the number of watts your generator will need.

Label Stats Find Watts
Volt-Amps or VA Volt-Amps = Watts
Volts and Amps given separately Volts x Amps = Watts
Kilowatts or KW Kilowatts / 1000 = Watts
Watts or Watt-Hours Watt-Hours – Watts

Add up the Total Watts and add to your calculator results to determine how much power your home is likely to leverage during an outage. Divide the total watts by 1000 to find kilowatts and add a 20% safety margin. This final number is your minimum Generator Capacity requirement for your home.

Avoid going with the bare minimum generator as home power requirements increase over time.

Choosing the Right Standby Generator

Once you calculate your power needs and requirements, you are ready to move forward by selecting other important factors unique and relevant to your home. Homeowners should carefully consider that if you have too small a unit, home appliances may not operate, and a too-large unit is wasteful and inefficient.
