Phone numbers

Posted by ALEXDH (ALEXDH), 21 November 2003
I know this may sound like i cant make a single decision for myself but.

What are your opinions on just having a mobile number.

Do you fellas use your good ladys to answer the home phone and take bookings , mines a career girl so is not at home much or do you use an answer phone forwarding to your mobile.

i thourght about putting booking hours on my adverts, probably a bad idea though.

how much is an 0800 number anyone know?

First use a local number and have call diversion from bt.
I also use an 0800 free fone no in my thompsons add includind my local no, my freephone no costs about a fiver a month. This works best for me.

Just phone resource, stuff BT !!!!

If you look in  Exchange and Mart I think you will find a deal with no monthly fee and calls about 5p a minute.

Dont forget that if you divert them aswell you will pay the diversion fee on top.

And a lot of calls will be people selling  advertising space in Doctors, Hospitals and Supermarkets.

On average 5 a week

Plus Chemical and equipment suppliers who will keep you talking .

What Equipment did you eventually buy.

Thanks to those who advised and helped me out.

I now have a Robin for my spotting, smahing little thing sucks well for its size ,ooh reminds me of my first girlfreind. Tongue

A NINJA whoopee just been playing with it. Large powerfull and hot, quite loud, reminds me of my second girlfriend actually. Roll Eyes

A power brush. Looks the business and goes well, leave comments to those those who know me and my Current lady.

A upholstery tool.

Still looking for a magic wand but will probably go for a nice new twin jet wand.

I have spotted an inline heater undecided whether I  will get it yet , its a chemspec one second hand 120 quid. I know were to get it monday if anyone else is after one give me a shout and ill buy it and forward it on.

Also going for a sebo made bids on a couple of kirbys with no luck.

All the best
