We hope you find everything you need on our site, but if not then please give us a call on 0800 142 2499 and we'll see if we can help you. We're open 9am - 5.30pm weekdays, excluding Bank Holidays.
We have a range of virtual numbers for 479 different area codes across the UK. These are numbers which can be pointed at any existing UK landline or mobile phone number, wherever it is, to give the appearance of being in a particular area. They are often referred to as virtual numbers, local numbers or ghost numbers.
These are incredibly useful for businesses that want to appear to be local to a specific area in order to provide a service there, but don't actually have business premises within that area. For example, they might just have one office in the UK, but want to target specific regions and appear to be local to that area. Or they're incredibly useful for businesses that want to advertise a landline number, but need to receive calls on their mobile phone and are worried that this will discourage potential customers. They're also great for monitoring the effectiveness of advertising, if you advertise appropriate numbers in different localities and see which areas are getting the most calls.
If you want to purchase a virtual local number, you will first need to decide whether you want to put it to your landline or to your mobile phone. We also offer a range of environmentally friendly virtual fax to email numbers.
