Hi @Paul P

 

Although you may be out on a job, you should still list the hours that people can telephone.

 

You should have your business page listed as a serviced area business page : I serve customers at their location and use your mobile number as main number and or have calls forwarded when you are out of the office

Hi Tim
I am the world's worst person for answering mobile phones, 90% of the time i forget it, and at home i have no service. I,m available most hours currently have them as a SAB I serve customers at their location with opening times 08:00 to 19:00 and have an answerphone at home. I,m just a bit concerned reading various articles if i might be better not listing hours, or is an answerphone acceptable if i don't personally take the incoming call?
