Talk Isn’t Cheap
You may be wondering why anyone would need a States-based phone line if they don’t live there. Hollywood Global Shipping Co, however, understands there are many reasons why people want or need such a phone number.
- An individual lives overseas, but most of their friends and relatives live in the US
- A business is located outside of the US, but many of their vendors and business contacts are located in the States
- A business wants to branch their business into the US market, but presently does not have a physical presence there
These are just some of the scenarios which may answer the need for a US phone number.
Anyone who has seen a phone bill with a lot of international calls billed knows it is not cheap. In fact, the cost can be so prohibitive that many avoid calling or strictly limit calls to loved ones because of it.
Having Hollywood Global Shipping Co set you up with a domestic phone line in the US eliminates those costly fees. All your phone calls to the States are billed as domestic calls with domestic rates. That’s right, big savings!
Another big plus, is that anyone calling that US phone number also gets billed at domestic rates. So, they are calling you overseas, but because they are using the US phone number, they don’t pay the higher international rates. It’s a win-win for everybody.
Businesses, in particular, find this service helpful because it eliminates the reluctance of associates and vendors to return calls because of the expense.
Possibly the best thing of all is that there is no need to purchase expensive equipment or have new phone lines installed. Once you sign up for the service, you will receive a USB device which plugs directly into your computer. The service even comes with caller id, call forwarding and voicemail, just like a regular phone line.
We can’t think of any reason for you not to sign up for this service today!
