The Forum is set up with 12 Specific Categories for Conversation/Topics of discussion to which Regular Members (those members in the Portable Storage Industry) have Full Access. Associate Members (those members who are providing products and services to the Portable Storage Industry) have different levels of access (Full Access/View Only/No Access) depending on the category. This is done for several reasons but mainly to ensure candid conversation without direct marketing, sales and/or interruption from Associate members. Associate Members have NO Access (view or participate) to the “Vendor Reviews” category. For this reason, it is extremely important to start any conversation in the correct Category.
