    I have been in the business for about 6 years, 5 with my own company, and am looking to get out to persue other options. Up for sale is my company, name, equipment, accounts and website, which is under construction. Below is a list of all equipment (I don't think I left anything out) and types of contracts.


    2004 8.5’ X 20’ enclosed Interstate Trailer w/ weedeater rack, blower rack, etc.
    2003 60” Exmark ZTR 27HP Kawasaki Liquid Cooled
    2003 52” Toro Walkbehind 17HP Kawasaki Floating Deck
    2004 36” Exmark Walkbehind 15HP Kawasaki
    2004 Little Wonder Bed Shaper 13HP Kawasaki
    2002 Brown MFG Bed Edger
    2002 John Deere Gator 6X4 with Hydraulic Dump Bed
    2 Stihl FS 85 Weedeaters
    2 Stihl Backpack Blowers
    1 Shindaiwa Weedeater
    2 Proslide Sulkies
    1 Toro Tru Trax Sulky
    1 Shindaiwa Hedge Trimmer
    3 Wheel Barrows
    Numerous Hand Tools (pitch forks, scoop shovels, rakes, etc)
    2003 Boss 7’6” Poly Straight Plow with wire harness
    Boss Undercarriage for ¾ ton HD GMC
    2005 Trynex 1075 Salt spreader with in cab control
    Almost full pallet of salt
    60 gallon water/fertilizer sprayer for bed of Gator
    Oregon Blade sharpener
    Extra blades
    Fuel cans
    Chain Saw

    pics available upon request.

    All equipment would retail well over $30,000All equipment is used, but well maintained, in great shape and all working!


    1 full service neighborhood (Mowing, mulch, flowers, fert., snow, salt, etc.) which I have maintained for over 3 years
    1 neighborhood mowing and snow/salt (other services upon request) for 3 years
    3 commercial properties
    9 residential properties (6 in same neighborhood)
    1 commercial fertilization contract for 2 years
    Numerous mulch jobs for same and new customers throughout the season
    Numerous landscape jobs throughout season

    Mowing contracts alone, based on 28 mows a year, are worth well over $40,000. This is without the mulch/landscape jobs and snow/salt accounts.

    I will work with buying person/company for a period of 1 month for a reasonable hourly rate to get them comfortable and aware of all areas and properties mowed. I will also go door to door to current customers to introduce the new owner to them.

    With all the equipment and contracts, I am asking $63,000 for all. Serious inquiries only please. For this price, you would make your money back in a year and a half or less, if you are a hard worker and would like to expand more. I also get a lot of work from another larger company that is too busy to get to some mowing and landscape jobs, so the normally call me first before anyone else.

    Once again, serious inquiries only, please, and pics are available upon request. Business and accounts are in Indianapolis, IN. Thanks for your time.
