Hey everyone ive been mowing for 6 yr have an established client base plenty of equipment and recently i have come across an oppertunity to buy another persons business. He is 65 and wants to retire. I normaly wouldnt consider buying accounts but id like to have his. We are talkin nice nice nice commercial accounts and nice residential accounts some a million dollars plus for the homes. He has been in business for years and i grew up looking up to him and admire his level of service. His name around here is like gold everyone wants him. Little background on the are prices are pretty cheap not a huge city around 50,000 pop. and cost of living is cheap prob cheaper than most of the country. Anyway if i buy his accounts and business i would be getting 23 yards he says these are the best of all the yards since he has been slowing down toward retirement he has only kept his high dollar yards. i dont know how much he makes a year off of these yards but i would guess between 40 to 45 thousand. Along with these id be getting a 2006 walker w high dump (200hr) a toro walk behind echo trimmer edger and blower. A trailer that he customised has a hytralic grass bin that dumps on its own. It doesnt load the grass but does unload it. hope that makes since. I will also get a 1976 chevy i think its a 1 ton that runs good he has been using it for yrs and said i told my wife id get a new truck when that one quits starting every morning and he said the dam thing wont die. Anyway i think thats all i am gettin besides he offered to help me out a little at first and introduce me to customers and stuff. Anyway asking price is $32,000 I think i could talk him down a little as i think it is a tad high but this is a business that has a customer base that will bring you many high dollar yards from their friends. Any way any opinions on this good bad? any specifics i should make sure are in the contract if i do buy?
