    Seeing as you are looking to buy some accounts (I am not near the Pittsburgh area but your response will help me out), how much are you willing to pay for accounts? I'm looking to sell some accounts in my area (Louisville, KY) and you response will help when I begin to sell my accounts, thanks!!

    Be careful buying accounts. There are no guarantees they will stick with you once you buy them. Also, accounts are not worth much, just go door to door and you'll get some if you're cheap enough.

    Being cheap it seems if one of the only ways of growing the lawncare business, so move in with your parents or inlaws or brother etc... lower your overhead to nothing and then if you're making next to nothing you'll be ahead.

    Good luck

    GREAT ADVICE.

    remember we are a customer service type of business, and you will wind up with the accounts that the seller does'nt want..

    The pita ones.


    Best of luck
