Any recommendations please?

I am looking for a reliable call answering service and wonder if anyone can recommend someone.

I simply want someone to take calls when I am out of the office and relay simple info such as contact details etc if asked.

A couple

Try Officebird or BananaOffice

Not used either but they are on UK Business Forums and both have an excellent reputation.

Me too

Thanks I was also thinking about this service. My worry is the number of spam calls I receive is high. Most of my costs will go into paying for this spam calls.

I just want something at a reasonable. Just answering and taking a message. I did try one earlier my bill rocketed due to spam calls. Left them.

Telephone Preference Service

If you get lots of 'spam' calls try joining the telephone preference service and after about three months or so the 'spam' calls should virtually cease.

TPS is a waste of time
''If you get lots of 'spam' calls try joining the telephone preference service and after about three months or so the 'spam' calls should virtually cease.''

I only wish that was the case the TPS is a waste of time - it doesnt stop foreign call centres and people do still call regardless. I registered with the TPS and still pay about £20 a month in unncessary call answering costs every month!

I use Smarter Office too. I leave my phone permanently diverted to them. The service is good and costs reasonable so I would recommend them.

Call Answering Service

We have used Answer-4u, ICS Group, www.answer-4u.com, Tel 0845 456 3156.  They are efficient, pleasant, and the least expensive we found.   Hope this helps.

Why not divert calls

I use call divert to my mobile when I am out - works well until you get up a hill in the Peak District !! I also combine with anonymous number blocking which gets rid of quite a lot of the rubbish (& also the IR !!!!)
