What if the 1300 number you want is already owned by a 3rd party?

If the specific 1300 number you want is already owned by a third party such as a specialised phoneword company, you may be able to lease the number. Leasing a 1300 number means that you will never fully control the use and management of the 1300 number and you will be bound by the terms and conditions of the leasing contract.

A 1300 number leasing contract typically ranges from one to three years. The right to increase or decrease leasing fees is at the discretion of the leasing company and at the end of the contract period, you will need to re-negotiate use. If you choose to discontinue your lease, the owner can re-lease the number to a different company, including to one of your competitors.

At 1300 Numbers Australia, we will never charge a leasing fee for a 1300 number. You simply select your preferred 1300 number from our pool of available numbers - or purchase your own number from the ACMA government website. We connect and host your 1300 number for a low monthly service fee, with no contracts.
