Many companies across a wide variety of industries are using their barter accounts and barter lines of credit to promote their businesses, secure equipment to make important operational changes, get repair work done at their facilities, and more. In fact, more than 2,000 businesses in the Southeast trade with The Barter Company to help them save cash. Learn how a car wash, a painting company, and a restaurant chain in Metro Atlanta have used barter recently to improve their operations and promote their businesses.

Jimmy Tester owns Mammoth Hand Car Wash and Detail Salon in Alpharetta, Georgia, and has used barter for the last several years to benefit his two locations. He has worked with both personal and professional service companies to repair and purchase HVAC systems, remodel his car washes, host an employee party, get electrical and plumbing work done, and service his garage doors.

During this challenging business time, Tester has used barter to continue to make key repairs and improvements to his locations. He recently used a barter line of credit to obtain an air conditioning unit that one of his detailing salons needed.

“With barter, I have been able to provide services to entice new customers who may not typically purchase a hand car wash or detailing services,” Tester said. “It also allows me to acquire items and services without spending cash.”

Tester has also previously used barter to have his house painted.

Speaking of painting houses, The Painting Company in Roswell offers residential and commercial painting services, including gutters and deck staining. The company recently used barter to purchase both radio ads and billboards to market its services and offerings.

Copeland’s New Orleans, a restaurant chain with locations in Kennesaw and Cumberland, recently used barter to get pop-up tents they needed to safely offer curbside delivery to customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ways these businesses have used barter are just a few examples of how trading via barter can help a company reach new customers, increase profits, and save cash. No matter what your business needs, consider how barter can help your company achieve its goals. Barter is Smarter!
