Using a number range that is widely recognised across the UK can help make your business become widely recognised across the UK. A non-geographic number, like an 0845 Number, can help you establish your business in markets outside of your local areas putting you in front of all new customers.
When forwarding calls to an 0845 number onto your UK landline, you won't have to pay anything. This is one of the main reasons these numbers have established themselves and are used by a wide range of businesses as their main contact number.
Like many number ranges the cost for your customer to call an 0845 Number will vary depending on where they're calling from, their provider and whatever tariff they're on with that provider. Calls to 0845 Numbers can vary in cost depending on the time of day and day of the week, but as we've already said some landline providers are now enabling some people to call these numbers for free. Unfortunately for mobile users, the cost to call is still quite high (anything from 12p to 40p/min).
The cost to your caller is always worth bearing in mind when choosing a number for your business.
