    How much do you think my business is worth for about 15 lawns and about $1600 a month for just cutting lawns? I also have equipment to sell and i know how much that is worth. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Ron

    There's alot of variables here. If they're not contracts then they wouldn't be worth more than a months income max. Might be able to squeeze a little more out of em if you got contracts on em & you can transfer em.

    ok heres what your accounts are worth.. nothing thats because once you tell them youre getting out of the business theyll find someone else and theres a good chance they will not stay with whoever you sell to i hate to tell you that like that but its true

    so your business is worth what your equipment is worth

    I have been offered $2500.00 for the accounts. They are not under contract. So i assume that i should take that offer. thanks
