Hi everyone, I have plans to buy my cousins business next spring to get into lawn care. His biz has 26 ¼ acre residential customers and grosses about $2200/month. He is selling me the customers, 32 Toro walkbehind, 21 Toro push, Stihl trimmer and blower, and a 5x10 trailer for $6000. All the equipment was bought in 2004. I go to hi school and Im in 11th grade and drive a 2003 Crown Vic X-Cop car. It has a tow capacity of 2000lbs so Im not worried about towing. My cousin weighed the fully loaded trailer and it was 1180lbs with empty gas cans. I plan on only working about 12-15 hours a week (57 mile route, round-trip) so I dont want to get a truck just yet. If business goes well next year Ill buy a truck (F150 or Ram 1500) in spring of 2009 when I graduate. I want to be a legit business and want to grow so when Im in college I can have a business on the side to help pay for tuition. What do you think of the plans? I cant wait to get started!!
