    To the people who haven't become so successful that they would turn their nose up to buying one account...... I am looking to sell it for around $75. I figure you would break even in a month. I WOULD MUCH RATHER trade for an account in my area. Farmington would be great, or east of there too! So if your not the company that pays illegal aliens or pays the temps $8 hour, and you are a GROWING company looking to expand contact me!

    Most guys on lawnsite just offer a account up no charge. That's how things have always been done if you look back. Just seemed odd to want money for just one account. Does the home owner know you are selling them like cattle in a auction?

    Yea they do, and I just bought 3 accounts from someone for $250 last week and have already made my money back. Why would I just give a customer away? I won't do anything else for free. Break it down; $75 gets you paying someone $10 an hour for four hours to pass out $35 worth of flyers which half get ripped down by other companys or blown out/off their door and land you 0 customers. OR......invest that money in a sure fire account that you could also possibably get landscape work, do sprinkler start up/winterize, and do fert if you are licenced to. One account sounds good to me, even better if it fills a hole in my route or just across the street.

    Don't worry you won't sell a $30 cut for $75. So the homeowner will call us anyways. Selling Accts is a big business if you have a couple hundred. But 1 acct ya ok. Maybe lunch would get it but $75. You must of liked 4-20-2011 way too much.

    I was going to make a connection to 4-20 on that one but thought it was a desperate grab for humor. Way to go out on a limb though!!

    you turds live more then a half an hour away from the account. So maybe you dont know how cut throat it is over here. And yes I smoked so much weed yesterday that I am still high today, you caught me.
