Let us tell you a bit about our background

We have 4 intelligent Online Business Directories that are all connected and talk to each via their state of the art servers and databases… Let us take the nerd within out of that sentence and tell you in a different way; our directory websites all link to each other to ensure that they are always up to date with the correct information, images and videos.

118 Online is the love child of its parent directories The Trade Finder and The Business Internet Finder. It has 1 sibling, Business Pages, together they make up part of the Unitel Direct family of companies.

118 Online gives you so much more than just a name, address and telephone number. Many of the businesses we list include useful additional information like facilities, opening times, payment methods, maps, directions, website links, photos and videos.

Find perfect business

Unitel Direct group of Companies!

The directories that you know and love today didn’t sprout from know where, they are the result of many years of solid hard work from our staff across the years. 118 Online and its directory relatives are all part of the Unitel Direct group of companies.

So where did it all begin?

It started in the UK in a town called Middlesbrough, one man with a big dream started a company named Unitel Direct, little did he know that this brand would grow to be known as one of the biggest brands in the UK for internet advertising!

As his company grew, the teams grew with it, employing more and more helpful customer services agents, talented back office personnel and ambitious driven managers helped shape the business into what it is today.

As the teams grew, he wanted to ensure that his customers experience wasn’t hindered by the varied people they had the chance to speak to, so what did he do? He designed and implemented a system that ensured that customers didn’t wait more than 60 seconds for their call to be answered by someone who had dealt with the account before.

Unitel Direct went through the roof! As a result, sister companies where created and secured under the Unitel Direct Group of companies. Each business had the same ambition and drive as the other and at the head of every scenario was how things would impact the customer.

He came to learn that he was pretty good at this marketing stuff and it was this realisation that lead to the glorious birth of our 4 directories.
