    Your question is way too vague...you must be more specific by inquiring like is equipment being transferred over with the sale, how many accounts are there, what is the weekly gross revenue, etc., etc., etc.

    Do a search on this subject and I am sure you will find plenty of info to read about.

    If you had just sold to me and where already looking to get back into the game I think you and I might have some problems on our hands. Did the person you sold to not make yoy sign a non-compete agrrement with him??????

    Husky... make this a lesson to you. If you are able to sell be prepared for someone to make you sign a non-compete. I think seven years is about average.
