    Hey i have decided to possibly sell my bus. I have a 14ft. open trailer w/ side gate, Walker 16hp, 2 Stihl BR420s, Stihl FS-85, Honda Foreman 4x4, 52-tine tow behind plugger, snow plow for fourwheeler, spreaders,and various other things. I also have 6 regular yards. Two of them are $200/ month yards, 3 are 100/month yards, and one is 125/month. I told the guy i would sell equiptment plus customers for $33,000. Would go as low as 30,000. Does this sound like a good idea on my end? Lemme know, thanks guys

    $600 for the accounts. i'm not familiar with all the equipment but i'd say somewhere between $6-10K for the equipment.

    was there a new truck in there somewhere that I missed? no, you're not going to get 30k from anyone that can do math. Sorry.

    if you get 30k you should be a salesman not an lco.

    Heck yeah, and let me know if the buyer wants to expand into the deep south. I could let him have 6 "choice" yards and put him right on into business.

    Good Luck!!! Friend of mine just bought out a lco, 60 accounts, and a landscaper truck for $37,000. If you get what you're asking for, more power to you. Oh and BTW, I told my friend I thought he was paying too much for what he got.
