do you need to sell everything as a package or would you be willing to seperate?

I am willing to seperate and sell some stuff off, but I need to have a buyer for my customer list before I can just sell all my equipment. I will be in a pickle if I sell all my equipment and still have all my customers.


Anyone want a good, growing business?????

hobbsd

Everything is still for sale. I will post some pics next week when I get a minute. However I can't sell all of my equipment if I still have 100+ lawn accounts.

SO if you are interested in the accounts let me know. If you are interested in the equipment, post and I will keep you in mind.
