      Overview of available service numbers for organisations

      It is impossible to imagine the business world without service numbers. Did you know that most of the top 500 companies in the UK use an 0808 or 030 number? And the good news is: even if you are not physically present in the United Kingdom, it is now possible to buy and operate a UK phone number.

      Would you like a customer-friendly national phone number for your advertising campaign, service line or webshop? A premium rate or business number is an excellent solution that gives you a national, service-oriented image. But which type of number is the most suitable for your organisation?

      Types of contact numbers

      There are various types of contact numbers for organisations. You can order the most important of these with an attractive subscription: local fixed numbers, toll free numbers, and now also national 030 numbers.

      Apart from that Belfabriek also supplies foreign telephone numbers. Below we briefly summarize what makes each of these numbers unique.

      Toll free 030 service numbers

      These numbers are very popular with callers because they are toll free. The number holder takes care of the call charges, which makes the threshold for callers as low as possible. These numbers are popular as loss leaders: a toll-free number to order a pizza or taxi, for example.

      National 0808 numbers

      The 0808 numbers are non-geographic numbers that are registered individually. The caller always calls at local rates. At first glance, these numbers most resemble 'normal' numbers, yet they offer all the extras of virtual numbers; they offer a nationwide appeal because they are not directly associated with a particular city or region, the costs for the caller are the same as for normal local numbers, the number owner can make unlimited use of all extra functionalities such as a selection menu, call queue, voice mail, and many more extras you know from other service numbers.

      If you choose to register an 0808 telephone number with Belfabriek you can call for free (fair use policy applies). Meaning with average use you will never pay any call charges.

      Local fixed telephone numbers

      With Belfabriek it is possible to register an area code of every city in the UK. E.g. London 02, Manchester 1618.

      Foreign phone numbers

      With Belfabriek you can also register toll free, national and local telephone numbers from abroad and have them forwarded to your own number. Think for example of London 204 or an American 0800 number. In principle all phone numbers in the United States, the UK and Europe can be registered.

      Easy to remember telephone numbers

      To encourage potential customers to call you, it helps if you have a number that is easy to remember. Such a number preferably consists of simple patterns. An example of such a number is 0808 111 333. Belfabriek constantly keeps a list of easy to remember phone numbers which you can register without extra cost.
