How do calls reach our Answering Service?
How calls reach our virtual receptionist and telephone answering service depends on whether you are a new business looking for a new telephone number or an established business with an existing number. If you are looking for instructions on how to divert landline calls to a different number please watch the video.
If you are setting up a new business we can provide you with a new virtual telephone number for any UK area code number or a non geographic 03 number for £10 per month. These numbers are not tied to our receptionist service so you can point them to directly to your home or office if you wish. The advantage these numbers have is they are usually part of the caller’s bundle of minutes so they do not pay to call you. If you are looking to keep costs down we can offer an 0844 number free of charge, but the caller will pay a little more to call this.
