Back In Action

 

The goal of Back In Action hosted by ATAC is to put AT equipment that is not currently being used into the hands of someone who can benefit from it.

Back In Action is primarily for residents of New Jersey, although we do accept entries from neighboring states. The program is designed to facilitate equipment exchange between individuals and is not for the use of vendors or distributors.

If you have a facebook account all you need to do is request to join Back to Action group.  Your request will be processed in 1-2 days.  If it is approved you will be able to sell, request  and buy equipment.
