Google My Business for Locksmiths and Plumbers

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have heard from several people lately, claiming to be experts, that it won't be possible for a mobile locksmith business in CA to get verified on Google my Business. Our presence online is new, however the business is established and licensed (it appears in https://www.breeze.ca.gov/) 

 

My question: Has the Google my Business application process for a mobile locksmith businesses (that services a defined service area) changed? 

 

There seems to be a lot of confusing information online about the subject. I would love some clarification on the matter please. 

 

The required information below may be less relevant, given we are still establishing the business online. 

 

1. Beyond Locksmith 

2. Services Orange County, CA and surrounding areas

3. +1 949 444 9904

4. TBC

Not sure what experts you heard about.

But Google still supports Service Area Businesses. 

Even Plumbers and locksmith.

This might not prevent you from getting suspended as it is checked by algos.

But general said service are bsuinesses are still allowed and possible
