How Do I Get a Business Phone Number?

Getting a business phone number is essential if you are using your personal device or landline for work. With Smart Numbers, you can buy a 0800 phone number or a geographic number to use for your business to maintain a professional image at all times.

0800 business phone numbers

0800 phone numbers are very beneficial for your business because they are free for your customers to call. This increases the likelihood that they will get in touch with queries and therefore gives you more of a chance to conduct business.

To get an 0800 business phone number, Smart Numbers offer a rolling monthly agreement with a small set up charge. The small set up charge is taken as a one-off payment when you set up your business phone number.

There is no contract associated with buying an 0800 freephone number and the amount you will be billed depends on the flexible call plan you have selected.

It typically takes within 1-3 hours to fully set up and test a 0800 number, but we recommend you always contact Smart Numbers before you decide so we can give you all your options.

There are a variety of call management features that are included with your 0800 number, so once it has been set up, you’ll be able to handle business professionally.

0800 Numbers from Smart Numbers are slightly different in that we only use the UK’s biggest Tier 1 networks which means you are guaranteed reliability and call quality unlike some of the less reliable internet telephony providers in the market.

Geographic virtual numbers

0800 numbers are not your only option when you’re looking at setting up a business phone number. You can also implement geographic virtual numbers if you are running a small business and looking to create a presence in local areas.

Smart Numbers provide geographic numbers from virtually every 01/02 area code across the UK.

The benefits of using geographic virtual numbers for your business is you can control the routing of the call in real time, through a web portal or access number.

Similar to the 0800 numbers we provide, the local number is typically set up within 1-3 hours with no contract involved.
