Call Answering Service for Business

When all your lines are engaged, when your office is closed, or when there’s simply nobody around to respond, our UK team will answer your incoming business calls for you — instantly and professionally. You can pay per call answered or buy a monthly package.

Your incoming calls answered within three rings

We all hate voicemail, especially when we call a business. That’s why it’s vital your customers’ calls are always answered by a real person, quickly and politely. It can literally be the difference between getting a new customer, and missing out.

With Planet Numbers’ Overflow Call Answering Service, you can rely on our professional, friendly UK operators to answer incoming calls within three rings. We’ll answer at any time between 8.30 am and 6pm, Monday to Friday.

Your customers are none the wiser

We want your customers to think they’re talking to a member of your team. So we’ll answer with your company name and say exactly what you’ve asked us to say.

You can choose to have your calls transferred to another line, your mobile say, or our operators can simply take a message and deliver it to the correct person by email or sms text message.

Choose a short-term or ongoing contract

Some customers simply use the service for a month at a time — perhaps during busy sales phases or during the holiday season when staff numbers are down. Others prefer a rolling contract to provide an ongoing safety net to ensure their important sales calls are never missed. The minimum contract is just 30 days. See the Our Packages panel for details.

No charge for wrong numbers

If someone calls you by mistake or with a spam or nuisance call, we won’t charge you for answering.
