Choosing between an 0800 and 0845 number...


Call charges effect whether a potential customer calls or doesn't. Most want the call to be free and at the very least the same charge as a local rate call.


When it comes to business benefits, providing an 0800 or 0845 number could mean the difference between getting and not getting that call. 



With either type of number you are providing a helpful and courteous service from the offset.



So what are the differences?



The advantage of both numbers is that they are non-geographic - they mask your actual location - making your business appear larger, with a national presence. 



An 0800 number is widely recognised as being completely free to call from any UK landline, giving an edge over competitors who don't offer this level of service. 



An 0845 number is charged at the same rate as an 01/02 call from any UK landline and are a lower cost option for your business. 



It is important to note that calls to 0800 or 0845 numbers from mobiles are much higher, so it also helpful to advertise a mobile number alongside them. However, a much more professional alternative than advertising a mobile would be to also have a local number
