I meet this guy who is selling his business. He wants to sell his 2004 36" Scag WB along with his contracts. He wants $3500 for it all. He says it brings in $1600 to $2000 a month. I don't need the Scag, but I would like the contracts. How much should I pay for the contracts? :rolleyes:

Welcome to our forum!

Can you tell us a little more about what these contracts are of?

How many clients are there?

Why is he getting out of the business?

Are they residential? Commercial? Have you looked over how much the claim is they make per month?

He says he's moving. And that he has roughly 60 addresses, both weekly and bi-weekly. He has property managers and also gets alot of mulch jobs, bush trimmings, clean-up jobs that would be included. I guess its all residential.

I think the bi-weekly cuts are going to be a problem, unless you offer that service and are comfortable with doing it.

Would you be able to ride along with him and check out the properties? See how much he is charging per property and see if they are comparable with how you run your business?
