    It's all about the profit that the contracts will bring to you.
    Look at every job and price it out. See how that compares to what they are paying now.

    Exactly as said by PMLAWN look at evaluate and price them each out.Also make sure they are stable.Personaly I would do the footwork rather than buy somebodys jobs,it can run into headaches.Your really just paying your competition for jobs you could bid when he drops them.

    Where's the guarantee if you pay are these clients bound by contract what says they can't walk after the agreement is signed, if my clients found out i was no longer mowing they would begin looking for a new service and all i can do is recommend a new company, just something to think about before your shell out the money
