When starting or expanding a business there’s plenty to organise. The hassle of spending time and money on installing a new BT line just to get a new telephone number is probably the last thing that you need. Getting a new telephone number to advertise on your website, van, business cards etc should be hassle free, quick and low cost, which is why people choose their business telephone number from Number People.
Number People provide FREE telephone numbers for business of all sizes. We provide phone numbers FREE for any UK area code, or if you prefer then choose one of our FREE 0333, 0843 or 0800 freephone numbers instead.
The traditional way of getting a phone number
Traditionally, if you wanted a new phone number for your business then you had to go through a lengthy process with BT, pay an installation fee, wait for a number of weeks and then be tied into a contract which cost over £15 per month for the line. All in all a pretty slow, inefficient and expensive way of getting a telephone number.
The Number People way

Use with a VoIP/SIP extension
You can even make outbound calls using your new Number People number as your outbound caller ID. This is done by adding a VOIP/SIP extension to the telephone number, this will also mean that you can forward calls into the VOIP/SIP and bypass any call forwarding charges! You can find out more about this outbound calling service here.
Why have a landline number?
You don’t have to advertise a landline number for your business, but advertising a mobile number can make you look temporary and less trustworthy than someone who advertises a landline number. It’s a simple fact that people trust businesses that advertise a landline number more than someone advertising their mobile, it just makes you look more permanent and secure, and will probably help you to get more business.
Advertising your home number for business?
If you advertise your home number, then you not only compromise your home life, but what happens when your kids answer the phone to a potential customer? Doesn’t sound good does it.
What’s the catch?
There really isn’t a catch when you order a FREE telephone number with Number People. You only pay a fair, low rate for forwarding your calls to either a mobile or a landline, free forwarding to your VoIP/SIP extension, or a mix of up to 5 destinations.
Who can order a FREE telephone number?
Anyone of any age can order a FREE telephone number from Number People. You don’t need to be a registered business and because there is no commitment or contract, you can use the number for as little or as long as you want it.
Whether you want a phone number for your business, or just to advertise something in a paper or online, then our FREE telephone numbers are the perfect solution for you.
Best service by far
We believe in offering a fair and flexible service, and that’s exactly what you get. No contracts, no monthly costs, and you only pay for what you use. Top up call credit cost from only £5 after you use your free trial credit.
If you look at our competitors then you might find hidden charges, upfront costs and packages that might look good at first, but commit you to spending a larger amount than you probably need to.
