    There is a new carehome being built near me, I would like to call them at their old place and ask If they would like a quote on the new building. I know some business have call barring and you can get into trouble, how do I find out if they are on this list?

    This is called Telephone Preference Service but you'll be more interested in the Corporate Telephone Preference Service. Someone else may have information regarding how you find out whether a business is on this but I think you have to pay for this information.

    If its just one call then what's the problem? As long as you're polite and don't start harassing them?!
