Interested in buying lawn maintenance accounts

I'm growing my business and am looking to purchase a few general lawn maintenance accounts (mow, blow, edge, weeding, pesticide control, shrub trim, and clean up.)
I am licensed & insured in the state of Florida, Broward County.

If you have too many accounts, and need to unload a few (10-20) please let me know.
We can discuss the details via private message.

Thanks

I have too much work! What do I DO with all this money!
Sell QUICK!

I guess I never will understand that mindset.

Believe it or not there are large companies out there that decide to unload a few accounts. I have already purchased a handful of small residential accounts/contracts from a large landscaping/irrigation company (that did a LOT more than just mowing lawns & still had some small residential contracts for a regular mow) in S Fla. They wanted to focus their time, money & resources on larger accounts.

If I were to unload any accounts the only ones I would ever get rid of are the pita ones. Slow paying and always complaining. Now they could be your pita. I can only think of one right now but you would have to drive to MN once a week to sassify this Lady !!!

I sell accounts all the time. Usually it's because the route is to far away or because I took on a large contract. It doesn't make sense for me to dump money on a new truck for one day of work A week. I used to run 3-4 trucks a couple years ago and tried to take on any jobs that came my way. It ended up siphoning my bank account dry. My high profit routes ended up paying for the lower profit ones. Now I'm at two trucks running full time and netting way more. selling off accounts can be a smart move if you're chasing your tail.
