Types of numbers


0800 Numbers are free to call from UK landlines. They are ideal for use in marketing campaigns to attract new enquiries.
0800 Numbers are publicly known to be UK nationwide Freephone numbers, making them highly sought after by businesses to provide to their customers.


0845 numbers are non-geographic and ideal for business use as they are widely recognised as company business numbers. The cost your customer pays when dialling a 0845 is not dependant on geographic location.
Many small and large organisations use 0845 numbers and they are widely used when promoting a contact number for your business sales lines. As a non-geographic number they can give your business a national presence to your customers demonstrating trust and reliability. With our package you will receive a host of call handling services and unlimited UK landline minutes. So no incoming call charges for your business!


03 numbers are classed as UK wide numbers and cost the same to call as geographic 01 and 02 numbers. If you receive free minutes on your mobile or landline tariffs then 03 calls will be included in your minutes. Taking this into consideration, 0330 numbers are customer friendly that will benefit your callers and increase your inbound calls because customers will not think twice about calling you from their mobile phones.
In June 2014 the Government will be forcing most organisations to move away from 084 and 087 numbers for their customer service and complaint lines. This makes 03 numbers the ideal choice for getting a new business number packed full of great call handling features.


We supply local area numbers from all around the UK which come with ALL of our services.
