    We have several accounts we want to sell. What would be the best way to determine a price for these? For example, if an account is paying $2000 per year, what would be a fair price for this account. Tks

    How many cuts per season for $2000 ?

    how do you know if the account will want to do business with the new owner?

    36 cuts per year, and the customer is willing to work with the new outfit. Tks

    On a year round basis 1 month would be fair.
