About Answer

Businesses have been trusting us with their calls for more than 45 years. With 3 times more 5-star reviews than all other UK answering services combined.

The original telephone answering service

Answer is the UK’s longest-running, highest-rated answering service. Founded in 1977 by Jackie Millman, the service was originally designed for musicians who were losing bookings due to missed calls. Since then, it has expanded to help a range of businesses across various industries, from SMEs and blue-chip corporates, to government agencies.

An affordable, reliable alternative to voicemail, Answer has operators available 24/7, providing high-quality responses no matter what the time is, so you can get on with your working day. It’s a simple pay-as-you-go service, done exceptionally well.

We understand the need for every call to be handled quickly and professionally, and it shows in our customer satisfaction rate – we are the most-reviewed answering service on Trustpilot, with the majority of respondents rating us five stars.
