    I sold all my mowing accounts last spring to focus more on lawn applications. I sold them for 3 months income. I sold off the equipment here and there. Craigslist mainly. You should know what your equipments worth..................so Good luck !!!

    yeah 2-3 mo's on the accounts is fair, and the equip sounds nice, i'd hold on to the hand held/small stuff just cuz its harder to get a decent price and won't you need it for your new home, or are you gonna hire one of us?payup

    I would ask for 6 months if they are good accounts.

    I've lucked out, all of my accounts are great accounts......normal middle class people that work just as hard as you and me. They love to find me new accounts. I do it part time, started with 2 accounts and I know I could blow up to 65-70 accounts without a problem. I just don't have the time. I've talked to all of my customers and even though they don't have contracts THEY have all agreed to give the new guy a shot and most of them recommended that I sell my accounts. I was just going to sell the Equipment and give up the accounts.
