Why not sell to anyone who makes a good offer? Are you afraid they are going to run it badly?

If you are looking for a perfect candidate it's nearly impossible. I run a very tight ship and see how the others in my area present themselves, seriously they look like bearded vikings with clothes so stiff with glue stains and talk like tweaker alleyville.

Maybe you should contact Ellen Rhor for advice.

How about I move to Indianapolis where some plumber put razor wire...

It just drizzles here...
The bums, politics and high rents are the issues
otherwise it is pretty good place on the planet
I forgot - the traffic sucks but we typically only service a 5 mile radius.

How about I move to Indianapolis where some plumber put razor wire in their store front??

Hey, I would love to move to Seattle if I was about 35 years younger but it all boils down to money....... Seattle is a great town except for all the nuts..... gone out there 2 summers in a row and its a great town when it is not raining.....

No one has the money to plunk down on something like this , and if you did have the money why would you even want to work on plumbing and boilers anyway????

I wonder what the guy wants for the privilege of getting to work on boilers and plumbing in an older city for the rest of your life????



Now if you want my business for $$ I would gladly throw in the razor wire for free....

You may want to contact ARS {American Residential
Services}. They own Rescue Rooter, and I think that they own Service Master. They love to purchase established companies, keep that business's name and take over.

If I were you, I'd call them at their corporate office in Memphis, TN and pitch it to them.

I worked for Sasso Air Conditioning years ago which was owned by ARS. They added a Rescue Rooter to the Sasso A/C office. At the time, a good friend of mine owned his own small plumbing business in that area. The general manager of the Sasso A/C asked me to talk to my friend to see if he wanted to sell his business.

Thanks but no thanks. I think I'm pretty well established now, I just got in the mail that I was listed in the top 3 best rated in the city. I was all excited until I checked the other two, The second is the biggest name in town for service and the 3rd is the fake plumber! I wonder if I should tell them he's a fake and has a bunch of fines and frauds in his record.

Anyway free razor wire ok, what about the gun on your hip, does that come with the shop???
