I just recieved an e-mail from a guy who is trying to sell his wcing bus. He is in the state that I am looking to move to. He has 2 vehicles free & clear.
-2004 E-3500 Van with a 330 gal fresh water tank and ionics pure water set-up
-3 poles incl. one 65 ft carbon
He is putting the figures together for me but he said he has atleast one residential job everyday and 3-5 commercial WFP jobs a month. He is in a very upscale part of Orlando Fl.
He wants $60K for the bus and the vehicles.
He said everything is run by an office girl using Service CEO.
He uses on full time sub and 3 part time subs.
Doesn’t sound like he works the bus at all himself.
Said he started this company 18 months ago for a family member who didnt want it after he got it going for him.
Has a website up and running that is pretty cool I think.
This is what I am thinking:
$20K worth of used vehicles
$5K worth of pure water set-up (guessing)
$?? Web-Site design
So what amount of business would he have to have done in the last 18 months to be worth another $35K on top of that?
He has no service contracts at all.
I might be able to give him a down payment and have him carry the paper on the rest. I don’t know yet. He is supposed to get me the figures by Monday.
I am only considering this because it might be better than starting from scratch and trying to feed my family starting from zero.
