The Trip Resource Center (TRC) Surplus Website hosted by the Human Services Council, is a private website meant to assist community organizations, non-profits, and transit agencies within Washington State to access available surplus transportation equipment and vehicles to support transportation needs around the state before the items go to public auction. Community organizations, non-profits, and transit agencies will have the ability to post, view, and contact posters to arrange purchase of surplus equipment and vehicles for two weeks before the general public.The purpose is to give smaller organizations that may not have the ability to purchase new transportation equipment or vehicles, the ability to access surplus items at a significantly reduced price. As well as allowing larger transportation organizations the ability to indirectly support community transportation programs and services around Washington State.
To be eligible for the TRC Surplus Website, the user must have an email address associated with a Washington State community organization, non-profit, or transit agency, and must be authorized to represent their agency; users will be verified to ensure compliance. When completing account registration, the user must include a valid email and phone number to ensure others can contact them in regards to surplus items.
Purchases/transactions will be conducted by the users themselves, and in no way will involve the TRC Surplus Website or the Human Services Council in the exchange of goods or funds. Users who make purchases/transactions facilitated through the TRC Surplus Website, in no way hold the TRC Surplus Website or the Human Services Council responsible for any outcomes.
