Hurricane Harvey Impacts Delivery Service

By  | Power Equipment Product Expert

Hurricane Harvey, now Tropical Storm Harvey, continues to significantly impact relief efforts and has made travel extremely difficult. This unprecedented amount of flooding and devastation is wiping out roadways and causing shipment delays of much needed products like water pumps and emergency generators.

We recommend customers who live in the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast areas to choose one of the following options to get their products in the fastest, and most convenient way possible:

1. Fastest Option - Local Pickup in McGregor, Texas

The best and quickest option is to call us at (800)710-7499 and place an order for one of the portable generator models below that are currently located in our local distribution center in McGregor, Texas. These generators are available for pickup as soon as the same day your order is placed and is about a 3-4 hour drive from the Houston area.

Please note: These models are in high demand and sell out quickly.

2. Order In-Stock Generator and Pick-up in McGregor, TX

Customers can purchase from a wide selection of generators currently in-stock in our Chicago warehouse. Please call us at (800)710-7499 to place your order. These generators will be sent to our local distribution center in McGregor, Texas.

3. Delayed Home Delivery

You can order your generator with your home address as your delivery address.  Keep in mind these shipments will be delayed by a few days, a week or perhaps even longer, we are unable to provide estimates on when these orders will be delivered. Road conditions will dictate when carriers are able to resume normal shipping operations. 

Stay Informed with Freight Carrier Notices:
