Virtual UK phone numbers are also known as local numbers, Areacall numbers, Ghost Numbers and remote call forward numbers.
Local virtual numbers are mainly used by companies who want to advertise in an area of the UK where they do not have an office. The virtual numbers we supply simply get forwarded to your existing landline or mobile making you look local.
We currently supply local phone numbers in over 470 UK STD codes and we also supply international phone numbers if you want to look international.
Numbers available in more than 470 UK cities
Our virtual phone numbers are easy to set up, have no long term contracts and are very cost effective. Here is why thousands of companies use us already:
A local builder based just outside of London in Richmond was securing business in his local area because he advertised his local number. Although he was only 10 minutes away from London he never got a call because he didn’t advertise an 0207 or 0208 number. We supplied his business with a virtual London number which forwarded to his landline and mobile making him look like he had an office in London. When he advertised the number he found that people called him because they believed that he was local to them.
