    I am exploring the idea of selling my business again this year, (I sold my clients last year because of college.) I am thinking of either doing that again or trying to hire workers to take over while I am away, thoughts on that? Also, if I was to sell it would be just clients no equipment included. Right now I have 13 that would be for sale but am hoping to increase my client list by the end of the season. Interested in what I should expect for these clients (I already have a number in my head) and also what people would be willing to give to buy the business. Please email me at for more information regarding the sale of my business or just reply with any advice you have for me.

    Thanks to all!

    Good luck in selling your biz. I always use the phrase, that buying lawn service accounts is like buying air. Customers can be fickle, and may not like the new "guy" because he has long hair, tatoos, smells of whiskey, drives a beat up truck, doesn't smile, rushes the job etc.......... There are so many variables that factor in. First and foremost I would sell to someone who has a strong work ethic, and is a somewhat of a people person. Then all parties are content.

    Having a meet and greet with new LCO and customer is always a plus to, as it shows them you hold the new contractor in high regards. Good luck in the future

    As far as price selling accounts, make sure it is a number that benefits you, but at the same time in enticing to the future LCO. And take care of the customers interest, because they always pop their head up in the future.
