Barter Is Back! Another Site To Help You Save!

 

Updated : Jun 10, 2009

With the recent launch of Barterpoint.ie, two Kildare based entrepreneur’s, just like VeryHappyPig, have come up with a novel way to escape the recession.

The site has been developed as a means to combating the growing levels of unemployment, pay cuts and general lack of funds that consumers are encountering on a daily basis.

“During these times we felt it necessary to act. People don’t have the money they used to have but still require goods and services, this is where we step in. The site was developed as a way to encourage people to use what they have, be it skills or unused or unwanted goods and get what they require. It’s that simple really said Mr Stewart.”

With the advances in transport and communications, now is the ideal time to take bartering to a new level the internet! Its also better for the environment as you may trade unwanted goods rather than dumping them, to quote an old phrase - One man’s junk is another man’s gold!’

Barterpoint also offers a unique rental section for people who may have bought tools or equipment during the economic boom which are left sitting idle in a garage/shed most of the time or trades people who may have tools or equipment and have fallen on hard times. On Barterpoint.ie, they can hook up with people in their area and rent out their tools and equipment.

“The main purpose of this site is to bring the sense of community back.’ comments Mr Stewart. “The idea of community has fallen by the wayside in recent years and in these tough times, community is what will help us to pull through. With this in mind we have also included a co-operative section for people who may require some help and vice versa. People can enlist the help of others in their community to get large jobs done and in turn return the favour to the volunteers.”

Get bartering on www.barterpoint.ie.
