Is a particular number AVAILABLE?

By Bill Quimby on May 22, 2023

People often ask if a particular number is available, but like all things, it’s often not as simple as people unfamiliar with it sometimes assume. If the number they ask about is in the spare pool or “available” it’s easy to answer an email and maybe reserve it and give the customer the link to order it. But the danger in that is that, the customer often thinks the way to find out if a number’s available, is to email us. And while that may work sometimes, it tends to hurt the customer more than help them, because it limits them to our availability.

The real answer is to show them how to enter their query on in the website. Pretty much every page on our site at TollFreeNumbers.com (other than the checkout process) has the query box on top. And users can get a lot more information and a better answer in a couple seconds or less.

The problem with asking if a number is “Available” is that there are numbers that are going to be available soon and can be backordered, and numbers that might be negotiable, not to mention the hundreds of other alternatives there to spark a visitors creativity and help them find good numbers when none are available.

That’s why I say it’s both important for customers to be able to have direct access to the lookup tool themselves, and to be able to see and understand all the results, not just if it’s in Spare or Available status. Because even if a number IS AVAILABLE, most users have to check multiple options to be sure that whatever they find is the best option. You’re not going to find the perfect number, which is why you have to try a lot of options before you can really be comfortable deciding and moving forward with a specific number, and we make it easier than anyone to check numbers!

We've helped tens of thousands of customers get great numbers over the past 25+ years

Tollfreenumbers.com has helped us to get a very good number for our business, 888-888-1ARI. Not only so, Rita at the Tollfreenumbers.com has provided us the excellent customer services. She reminded us several times via email that we needed to transfer our toll free number to a phone company. After 30 days that we tried to transfer it to our phone service provider Comcast.net without any response, Rita sent us the Opex Transfer Form and took the initiate to follow up with Opex. Within 2 days, our toll free number was transferred with a very good rate. We highly recommend Tollfreenumbers.com. You will receive the best customer services from them. They go extra miles to help their customer get a good number and they make sure their customers are satisfied. Thank you, Rita and Tollfreenumbers.com!
