Getting a Call Answering Service Just Makes Sense

What Does A Virtual Receptionist Cost?

Our Virtual Receptionist Service is priced according to the volume of calls to your business. There are a range of service plans to choose from, based on the level of answering services that best suit your needs.

Our service pricing ranges from a very basic package of $29 retainer per month and a fee of $3.50 per call and then we offer a broad range of popular packages with call volume options inclusive of calls. Our most popular package for small businesses is inclusive of 50 calls and priced at a retainer of $165 per month. We offer services for 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 calls per month, all the way up to 1,000 and higher. Each calls-based package has a retainer, and any excess calls over the range are charged at a small cost of $3.15-3.50, depending on your package.

Why choose Virtual Headquarters?

A Virtual Reception service makes good financial sense – it is a smart cost-effective solution to answer your calls but there are considerations to cover to ensure you get the advantages you want. Firstly, it is crucial that you check a few things with any Virtual Answering Service:

4/ Are there any set-up costs or service deposits? VHQ will not charge you any of these sorts of fees.

The Virtual Headquarters Call Answering Services have succeeded in business because we offer our clients a reliable professional service.
