    if somebody asks you to sell your company how much wold you ask for it??
    let's say you have 50 costumers and you average per year is about $70000.
    what are you guys think about this proposal?

    $28,000 for all equipment, and two old GMC's

    $53,000 For all equipment, and accounts. Extra $5,000 for my name.

    I could get moe if I sold all the equipment separately. Not so for the accounts, probably couldn't get more than 2months revenue for the accounts.

    The only way I would sell everything is if I had somthing else off the ground.

    I figure I could get around $30,000 for my equipment if I sold it all separatley.

    You definitelty couldn't buy equipment like that for under $35,000
