Signing up for a membership has its advantages of course, like the newsletter which you can receive or not as you so wish, of all the latest news that we manage to dig up for you, news, new products, gossip and press releases relating to the industry as well as news about what's happening on the site.
Of course if you are a member of the trade you are welcome to use the trade forums as you see fit, whilst the public forums are open to anyone including members of the public and trade alike.
And, it's free.
What's In It For Me?
Often we are asked "what's in it for me?" from members of the trade especially, well nothing other than the free use of the information on the site as well as help and guidance should you need it, but then we're not asking for anything in return either and, certainly not payment from anyone for anything you find of use here. It is hoped that trade and public alike can help one another.
It is completely altruistic, no cost, no benefit. We all just do it because we want to.
Want To Help?
Help us to help the trade and public by sharing information.
Should you wish to review an appliance, please feel free to type away and add it in to the database, click on "reviews" from the main menu and you can add a review from there. The reviews are held and vetted (for obvious reasons as this is a child friendly site) and then posted after we add pictures, if needed and sort out the formatting for the site. Please feel free to add these as you see fit.
Articles are basically intended to be in-depth help and pieces on the site, trade or appliances in general and these can only be added by site admin, but again, please feel free to write away and simply email your articles into us and we will put them in there for you.
Well, you get the latest scuttlebutt on what's going on in the industry as well as the chance to contribute yourself to the many debates and conversations held in the forums. So, if you have an opinion at all, want technical help, business help or simply want to have a moan about something then this is the place to ask or post it!
Regardless of what problems you face, generally someone here will have already had a similar experience at some point or another and can offer advice. So you can get help on a wide range of issues here and some that may be of immense use to you.
For manufacturers etc. it's worthwhile seeing the feedback from the trade and the issues that effect them on the ground and at the sharp end of the service industry and you can address issues directly should you wish.
