Can't Create a Business Account Because of Location

Free Spirit Tiny Homes, 200 Deer Ridge Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27156 919-525-4613 - We have tried tons of times to create a business account but it won't let us do it without an address and when we put the address in, it doesn't recognize it. This is a home-based business. We tried turning on the satellite and dropping the pin right on the house, but that still didn't work. This has been our address for 30+ years! Please advise. Thanks so much.

Yep @Jill L

 

It seems caused by a plain addressing issue of GMaps and MapMaker.

Abviously GoogleMaps doesn't know or understand your address.

 

It obviously considered "200 Deer Ridge Drive, Chapel Hill, NC 27156" as belonging to NC 27516.

See below:

I recommend to complain about this addressing issue in the GMaps Forum or to report it as an error through GMaps (through the link "send Feedback")

Thank you!!! That worked. Apparently I was given the wrong zip code. :(
