National numbers / Non-geographic

We realise that local numbers are not always suitable for businesses looking to offer services across the UK. This is when a national virtual phone number makes perfect sense as they are not linked to a geographical location.

Here at Best Reception, we can provide companies with a large choice of 0330 virtual national numbers. These numbers cost callers exactly the same as ringing a standard UK landline number.

The numerous benefits of a virtual national number include being more cost-effective than a freephone number, depending on the call volume. Regardless of your physical location, your business can retain the same number, ensuring continuity and boosting your trustworthy reputation.

For Best Reception customers who choose a call-handling package, there are no additional ongoing fees for our virtual numbers. Please note that there is a small set-up fee.
