    Thats a heck of a leap. I could see someone who is established considering it, but just starting out, I would be very careful. When considering a price, try and leave yourself an out if it folds. When buying someone out, clients for what ever reason tend to explore other options. So expect to loose allot of them. Just allot to think about.

    Good luck

    Very true! If they are not happy with the service but to0 nice to let the guy go this is their chance to jump ship, and some people don't really think much about their LCO but when they are told there will be a change it freshens their mind if they really want a change to someone they don't know, sounds weird but it's the way it is.

    maybe get someone to go in as a partner with you? if it doesn't work out you can just split the equipment 50/50 and at least it wouldn't be a total loss.
