In today’s competitive world, it’s tough to find a way to stand out from all of the rest. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could figure out how to reduce your competition without reducing your price? After all, if people only used your services or products, they would never go anywhere else. 

As a member of 985 Trade, you will be able to immediately reduce the number of people with whom you are competing through the power of barter.  

Here are some of the ways our members in the home maintenance business use barter to grow their business and stay ahead of the competition:
-appliance installation 
-carpentry work
-surveillance and security systems 
-mortgage and real estate services
-lawn care and landscaping 
-pool maintenance and repair
-windows and window decor
-pest control

Don’t believe us? Listen to what some of our members have to say. 

Here's how it works:
  1. You sign your business up with us and get a listing on our site, plus a trade card.
  2. Customers contact you with their home maintenance needs and you fit them in where you have time.
  3. Once the work is complete they pay you with their trade card.
  4. The trade dollars are now on your account, use them to go on vacation, go out to eat, or take your wife on a limo ride to New Orleans. With over 1,000 locations to use your trade dollars, there is no telling what you will find to do.
