Description

Turn-Key business, easily transferable, and seamlessly, to a new owner. This well established quality lawn and snow business is for sale, with both established commercial and residential accounts. Sales are about equal for snow and lawn services. There are more commercial snow accounts than residential. Lawn services are about equal between commercial and residential customers per the seller. The business recently had new branding and website, transferable to the new owner. Seller now works “in the trenches” and has 1 – 2 seasonal helpers.
Jan – Sept 2016 sales: $174k. Net profit is $59k so far this year, and on track to be about the same as the previous years profitability. The $59k net profit is without any owner benefit add backs, amortization, depreciation or interest expense. All equipment is included in the sale price. Most equipment purchased 2011 through 2015. If a start up business purchased the equipment as new, their price for the same models and makes would be in excess of $300k.
