CRI is a professional Barter Brokerage Service. We have been working with Business owners and Professional People in Salt Lake and surrounding areas, arranging and facilitating barter and trade transactions for the past 35 years.
We build relationships with business owners. We get to know them and their businesses and look for ways to help them save their cash by trading their goods and services for other goods and servicess they normally purchase with cash.
We provide an environment for trading goods and services, where everyone understands and agrees to our terms and conditions for bartering. We prevent inflated pricing and non-performance by being actively involved in the trade transactions. We don't just give you a Contact and say "Have at it." We make sure the Seller is willing and in a position to do a trade before sending the Buyer to them.
We write up the trade transactions on a numbered voucher and post the voucher to both Buyer's and Seller's accounts. We send monthly statements to Clients who have had activity during the month so they have an accurate record of their CRI trade account.
CRI earns a 10% commission for our services, based on the value of the trade. The Buyer pays the commission to CRI in the form of cash or check. We believe having the Buyer pay the commission confirms our committment to serving our Clients' best interest. Our primary role as Brokers is to help our Clients spend their trade credits obtaining the goods and services they need. We don't get paid until we do our job.
There is a one time enrollment fee of $400.00 to join our trade group. It has been $400.00 for 35 years. Experience has taught us that the enrollment fee is necessary to discourage those who are not going to take bartering seriously or don't intend to abide by our terms and conditions for trading, from entering our trade group. There are no additional fees other than the commissions we collect when Clients spend their trade.
