Yes. We are able to add additional local phone numbers nationally including all major capital cities (e.g. 02, 03, 07, 08 etc) giving clients the impression that you’re operating locally in a particular city. Of course with multiple numbers around Australia it appears you are operating nationally. Additional telephone numbers are only $5 a month per number.

We can also obtain 1800 numbers (generally around 4 hours to set a 1800 number up) if you prefer either of those over a local phone number (e.g. 02 for Sydney, 03 for Melbourne etc). For the 1300 numbers we simply answer and handle your calls / receive your faxes. For a 1800 number, once it is setup you simply ask us / your provider to “point” that number to the unique local phone number we allocate your business during the Free Trial setup process and instantly we are answering and handling your 1800 number telephone calls. It’s very straight forward.
