Haybrook Estate Agents - how to contact them?

Recommended Posts

I've received a letter from them this morning inviting me to use them. They give their telephone number as 01142 720700. I know 0114 is the code for Sheffield, but where does the 2 come from?

They gave you the wrong phone number.

 

It should be 0114 2720700

 

Who knows what'll happen if you dial the space in the wrong place.

I think this is the Haybrook lettings number!! But I can't be sure because of the incorrect spacing!

When Sheffield changed from 0742 to 0114.....they also changed individual numbers to keep up with the national standard....hence the 6 figure number became a 7 figure number with the introduction of the 2 at the front.

 

Some people still say it and write it as it was previously...adding the 2 to the 0114 to make it sound the same as before...hence the way it is written here.

 

I am from London...so am used to the 7 figure system and write it and speak it as I would have done in London......as in 0114 234 2084 (don't bother ringing it - it's an old dead number I had before). If I were a Sheffielder I would write it and speak it as 01142 342034 (which seems completely alien just writing it). The spacing used makes no difference to the number dialled. :D

Any company that has problems understanding the area code for the city they are based in is 0114 and not 01142 should be avoided. Hardly fills you with confidence.

I live in Sheffield and my number is 01148****** so perhaps the code is 0114. I was told that they had run out of numbers beginning with 2
