Toll Free

Toll free numbers can be very useful for any business that wishes to present itself as a larger entity and show a professional appearance. If you have a national presence, or would like to at least appear that way, then it can certainly help to have a number that is location independent such as a 1-800 number.

These numbers also may reduce barriers for potential customers, since they know there is no cost to them when they call your toll free number.

What does Toll Free Mean?

As the name suggests, toll free simply means there is no toll (or cost) to callers that call your phone number. All costs associated with the call are paid for by the company that owns the toll free number. This is of course an important point to make since you are likely reading this page from the perspective of wishing to buy a 1-800 type number.

It is worth some thought on how you wish to use this type of number. For example, is it for a national advertising campaign or local advertising perhaps. If your primary target market is local based, you may be better having a dedicated local phone number that people can call since it will likely be free to the caller anyway and will give you a local appearance. If your target is nationwide then a toll free number may make sense since it presents a national feel.

Toll Free Number Options

The following numbers come under the toll free umbrella and can all be purchased from Cabertel:

  • 1-800
  • 1-844
  • 1-855
  • 1-866
  • 1-877
  • 1-888

What about Vanity Numbers?

Vanity numbers are a sub-set of toll free numbers. For example, you may be looking for a number that is easy to remember for customers. This can be very beneficial if you are spending money advertising on TV or radio so potential customers can easily remember the number and call you. For example, you could try and get a vanity number such as 1-800-CAB-RTEL (oh that's nice, please don't buy that one!).
