So I have tried over the past few years to buy this business. He keeps posting ads but we can't come to terms. As with any seller he want what I think is too much and I don't want to pay for everything upfront. So here is some ports of the ad. .... - Business is well positioned with a base of approximately 30 application accounts plus other landscape maintenance customers.... He charges a premium over what I do. Lawns may be average 15k and he does on average 5-6 apps of Fert, weed, insect, pre - aeration and seeding.. Might be half his list of 30 but I'm not sure - landscape maintenance (pruning, mulching, etc.) - irrigation installation and repair... I don't do irrigation at all but could sub contract it out - lawn cutting...very few but could be an upsale. -design/build/install landscape projects... I don't do which would be little value to me. -water features (garden ponds, and water fountains)...don't do - topsoil that is blended on site..my office isn't close and I'm sure land not included in sale. EQUIPMENT THAT IS INCLUDED WITH THE BUSINESS:-----gonna assume fair-good value. 2001 ISUZU VAN BODY TRUCK WITH A LIFT GATE... 1- 18' LAWN MAINTENANCE TRAILER... 1- PERMA-GREEN RIDE-ON SPRAY AND FERTILIZER MACHINE (HONDA ENGINE)... 2- RYAN WALK BEHIND AERATORS (1 WITH HONDA ENGINE) 1- BED SHAPER... 1- BLUEBIRD DETHATCHER... 1- 3 POINT HITCH WATER FILLED AERATOR... 1- 6' BOX BLADE... 1- 6' PULVERIZER TOOL... I made an offer last year but want per to do a down payment and them 6 quarterly payments to come from revenue generated from his client list. So anyone care to help with a very vague ballpark price?
