How can I make calls that show my business name on the caller ID?

I've just started a small business that involves some calling to get new clients. I have an 800 number via an online voicemail system for which I pay a small monthly fee.
I realize now that what I want to do is be able to call people and have my 800 number and/or biz ID name show up on the caller ID.
I have a good quality land line, a personal one for our house. Is there a way for me to dial a service which forwards my call as if coming from an 800 number and also gives call forwarding and voicemail service?

I'm thinking perhaps a VOIP service could give me this option. I've just closed a VOIP account (VOIPO) because the call quality had degraded when we switched to a new DSL service. So, using a VOIP account for this seems out of the question.
So, to summarize. I have a residential land line for my home. Is there a service available where I can call into it, then place a call so that it seems to be coming from an 800 number with biz name on the caller ID, plus also have voicemail functions and call forwarding?
