Fly Away with BarterQuest

I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly

I’d fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please

Oh I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

Did you feel the groove and get the urge to escape? Sometimes I have that wish to leave everything behind as Lenny Kravitz describes in his song “Fly Away.”

Of course, there are too many causes which hold us back: Our debts, conscience, and the responsibility in the face of our job, family, partner, children, friends, or maybe we are not brave enough to dare this adventure! The list could be continual.

Apart from that money will be another aspect that keeps us back from the idea to buy a ticket to the Caribbean and enjoy the next two weeks at a turquoise ocean with a beach full of white sand you have ever dreamed of!

But to fly away doesn’t have to be expensive: Barter for it! Our user Paul is a private pilot and shows you New York from another point of view. Above all you can fly as a second pilot. Fly away with Paul!

Unfortunately Paul is the only pilot who offers his service. Therefore BarterQuest wants to increase this category. Do you know a pilot or are you a pilot and want to give away a special moment to our users? Register on our site and

Let your spirit fly
Where we are one
Just for a little fun!
Oh oh oh yeah!

I want to get away
I want to fly away
Yeah yeah yeah

Trimming Costs in the Recession

Posted on December 16th, 2009

Barter is not new, but its use is picking up in lean times. With companies trimming costs in the recession, barter is a potential tool for either the business owner or financial manager to leverage a company’s cash.
Without barter, Danielle Williams could not have renovated Oceans 234, a Deerfield Beach restaurant.
Nearly half the cost of a $170,000 renovation in September was covered by exchanging services through NuBarter, a barter exchange.

It’s an alternative to seeking business loans, which have been difficult to secure in the economic downturn.
“We’re helping them survive the recession,” says Karen Roumay, owner of the Delray Beach-to-Deerfield Beach territory for NuBarter.
“Danielle could never have done her renovation. Who has $90,000 in their pocket right now and who is lending $90,000 right now?” Roumay says.

NuBarter’s members include four printing companies, two pest control companies, graphic designers, commercial and residential cleaners, auto repair centers, tire stores, hair and nail salons, 24 restaurants, and two hotels, Ocean Point Resort in Pompano Beach and the Bridge Hotel in Boca Raton.

Members pay a one-time fee of $395 to be in the exchange and 10 percent when they purchase items with their barter dollars on NuBarter, Roumay says.

Moseley, who has been in business for 25 years, says his business would have failed in this recession if it had not been for barter. “I don’t know how I would have gotten the money to pay for materials,” he says.

“If you’re a company that has any kind of idle time, space or resources not being used all the time, then you should definitely be on trade,” says Moseley, who has been using barter for the past three years.

Business has fallen off more than 60 percent since the housing market turmoil and recession, so two years ago, Deerfield Beach business owner Jordan Katz turned to barter.

Katz, owner of Discount Mike Window and Floor Design Center, says barter has brought him new customers. “We’ve been able to generate sales from customers that otherwise we would not have received,” says Katz, who has been a member of NuBarter for two years and does a couple thousand dollars a year in barter. “It’s another avenue of potential customers.”
A trade is considered an expense and exchange members receive a 1099 tax form with their trade information at year-end. If it’s a personal expense, it can’t be taken against the business.
