    My biggest competetor has just been bought out by trugreen chemlawn. I purchased trucks, trailers, small equipment and all his leftover products. I think this may be "big time" money maker for me next season. What does everyone in here think?

    Happening in NJ too. We picked up two decent size condos from Tru Green Land Care this week after they were thrown off the job...

    Cool deal! Sounds promising! If there was a way that you could get an idea of "where some of those addresses are", you could easily sell your way in by explaining to them the benefits of a smaller private - like not using "junk" for product, and more personalized service (you're not just a "hose jockey"). One thing to consider, is that many of these people are going to switch right away, anyway, since many of them have probably already HAD one of these two companies in the past (many have).;) Incidentally, whereabouts are you?
