Changing business place google maps icon from shopping bag

Hi,

 

When I search for my business via google maps, the location icon appears as a shopping bag. My company is a building firm so would prefer for it to come up with a more appropriate icon, however can't seem to find a way to change it myself. Can anyone help?

 

Thanks very much.

Can you provide some details.

Business Name, Phone no and address and/or a link to your search result with the wrong Icon.

A lot of things shown in search are set by algorithms and something out of context in your name could be the cause. We cannot tell what may be the issue without any details.

Hi,

I assume its the blue symbol the red Pin is on.

As you have made the listing as a store front with opening hours I assume
Google thinks you are a shop?

I do not think you can differentiate that you are a showroom and then you
deliver or fit as a Service Area contractor would do who do not show an
address but a service area.

I hope that helps.

Hi,

 

Direct Construction Services UK Ltd

 

It looks like a picture of your private back garden and you appear to be a contractor who provides a service at the clients location.

 

Setting a Service Area up, go to the greyed out details in the GmB Edit listing, instead is more appropriate I suggest. And that will stop you having a handbag. I used to get some gip when I went to the woodyard with the leather mans handbag my girl friend bought me when I worked as a handyman, so I can sympathise.
