    What do you guy's think would be the best way to sell out? All equipment in one package deal or each piece alone?

    Whichever nets you the most money with the least headache.

    package deal. but you may not get anyone willing to bite it all off.

    You will get more money that way and not have any left over stuff.

    Actually, sell the big stuff, and throw in the blower, a trimmer, etc to sweeten the deal.

    I mean if the guy wants to buy a WB for say $2100, that you're trying to get $2200, tell him you'll throw in the trimmer for $2200.

    Sell the whole package, Trailer, equipment, and customer list.

    Why am I seeing a bunch of going out of business threads lately? What is causing you guys to sell?

    Break it up, you expand your potential buyers that way. ie someone wants your trailer but not the rest of equipment he doesn't get to be your buyer same with the mower blowers etc. Also it's a lot easier to find 5 guys with 2k each than it is to find one guy with 10k. I have purchased equipment, tools, weight equipment etc in large lots, broken it up and most times tripled or at least doubled my money, with little or no effort. Can be a little more hassle but the rewards are more than worth it.

    I'm not sure yet if I am closing the doors or not. I have some health issues that just will not let me work like I always have. I am talking to a Friend of mine in the business about sub contracting all my mowing and I can handle the rest . I am tired of dealing with employees.
