Never Miss A Call While You’re On The Job

We understand that your profession requires you to have a mobile office and work long hours. In addition, you’re always on the go between different job sites to meet with customers and monitor the progress of each project — all of which make it challenging to answer your phone.

When you partner with Direct Line, you don’t have to worry about missing incoming calls due to a hectic schedule. Instead, our professionally certified call agents will answer your calls promptly and professionally so that you can focus on your projects at hand.

Our live virtual receptionists are the perfect solution for HVAC, Plumbing, Roofers, Electricians, and any other trade service needing administrative and telephone answering support.

Professional Contractor Answering Services

Many trade industry answering services fail due to the lack of instant delivery of urgent messages to an on-call technician. Not at Direct Line!

Not only do we expedite calls quickly and accurately, but we are also highly experienced in differentiating emergencies from non-emergencies. This is a significant benefit to you since it spares your on-call staff from issues that your office can handle during regular business hours.

Our team of experienced call agents will gather information accurately, quickly, and professionally and per your specific call instructions. In addition, our advanced answering service technology automatically identifies which instructions to follow based on the type of call that comes in.

1. Why Do Trade Contractors Need Telephone Answering Support?

The average contractor spends more time in the field than in their office. Answering calls and taking notes is almost impossible to do in such a case. With the constant travel that this type of job demands, an answering service is ideal for offering excellent customer service and capturing every opportunity.

2. Why Do Contractors Use Answering Services?

Contractors trying to fill in the gaps of their call coverage choose answering services to ensure that no call goes unanswered. Also, investing in such a solution is a cost-effective decision that improves customer service, increases office efficiency, and reduces administrative payroll costs.

3. Can a Contractor Answering Service Manage High Call Volume During Peak Seasons?

Yes, we can comfortably handle hundreds of calls per day. Whatever your needs are, we can take messages, dispatch emergency calls, and warm patch important calls to you or any other specific person or department.

4. Does a Contractor Answering Service Offer Bilingual Support?

Yes, we know that the United States is growing in diversity, so we have employee call agents fluent in Spanish. As a result, we can help you broaden your reach and serve more people.

5. Where is Our Call Answering Service Located?

Our answering service is located in the United States with two locations: Berkeley and Stockton, CA. All our agents are 100% U.S.-based and able to answer for trades professionals nationwide.
