Hi everyone... Need some advice! We are trying to sale an existing lawn care business. I won't bore you with the details but long story short, it took up more time than I was willing to sacrifice. We are now looking to sale our business locally and need your opinion on what's the best way to do this? Should we run an ad in the local paper? Or would it be better to contact all the local lawn care businesses by phone? Would you be bothered if someone called you to ask if you were interested in buying an existing business? What's the best approach here? Would you be interested in the existing customer base and the existing equipment of the business? Does that have any value to you? What would be a fair assessment of the value of the customer? Would you be interested in buying that customer list, considering what it costs to advertise and get new customers? Or would you prefer to get your customers the conventional ways, since there are no guarantees that the customer list will continue to do business with you? How about the equipment? We have a trailer and some half decent lawn mowers, a riding lawn mower, weedwackers, blowers etc. They are all almost two years old. Would this equipment interest you since its almost two years old? IF so what would you base your interest on? Would it be solely based the cost of the equipment and condition of the equipment? Would the manufacturer of the equipment matter to you? How would you, if you were the seller, fairly determine the value of the equipment? If you have any suggestions, please post them here. Also, if you know of any on line resources which will help, I'd appreciate that too. Thank you for your posts. I appreciate your professional opinions! Best of luck in your business! P.S. GO Steelers!
