Not sure if this is the right section but, my question is, I'm going to get out of the lawn and snow removal business. When trying to come up with a price, how much do you figure in for the customer base/ contacts?

3 Years of revenue and the new owner acquires no debt....

How much money did you make in the last three years before taxes, X3
Good luck

Ps How do you know your present customers will sign my contract for the next year
If I buy ?

Be foolish for me to work wseing your contract

I have a very good relationship with my customers and they are willing to give new owner 1 year trial. It's not a big company by any means, but would make a great addition to someone looking for more. The lots are almost all commercial and open.

On a more serious note, I take it you already have a buyer but haven't discussed a price for your business? But have discussed who your customers are, their property details, and how much you are charging?

If yes, why would he need to buy your business now? If no, how could this buyer know that he can maintain the same level of service for the same price that you already have and commit to that?

No, none of the above. I'm curious as to where or how to price it to begin with.

The customers aren't high maintenance by any means. Level of service would be on new owner I suppose.

What kind of equipment are you selling?
Around here, not many people walking around with 100 G’s in their pocket looking to purchase a business w/ equipment and clients, so you’ll probably be parting many things out.
