I am looking for some quick customers to get the lawn business up and going.

I was curious if anyone in Eastern KS or Western MO (the KCMO and surrounding areas) had any customers they wanted to get rid of or downsize, that I could buy from them.

This worked out well for me in the past when I first started, I ended up buying out 3 other lawn companies. As time went on, I sold off the ones I didnt care to deal with anymore to someone that wanted them..

Let me know, Email F3Nelson@yahoo.com or call me (913) 915-1208

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Hi Mike,

I can mention this on the GopherHaul show too. Maybe someone will contact you from that.

In the past, what did you find was the best way to find out if a lawn care business wanted to sell their client base? How did you go about approaching them on it?

Did you also consider posting something like this on craigslist?

They quite litterally just fell into my lap. One was the guy that I started mowing lawns for, the others just sort of showed up.

I havent tried CL yet, I will give that a shot, cant hurt.
