Jimmy Tester, owner of Mammoth Hand Car Wash and Detail Salon in Alpharetta, Georgia, has used barter for several years. He has worked with companies to remodel his car washes, host an employee party, get electrical and plumbing work done, and service his garage doors. In 2020, Tester used barter to make key repairs and improvements to his two detailing salons and used a barter line of credit to obtain a new air conditioning unit for one of them. He has also previously used barter to get his house painted.
“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.”
