More than one business at an address using same phone number

I have a client that has two businesses at one address and they use the same phone number. Will I be able to successfully create a Google My Business listing for each of the businesses? Any tips for getting this setup correctly?

Hi @Heidi A

 

I honestly don't think you will get both verified using 1 number at same address.

 

If they are truly separate businesses and not "service of another" then they usually have separate tel numbers.

 

You would not answer the phone Bob's Plumbers and Tom's Taxi, whom would you like to speak to ....  I know thats massively simplified.

 

You can certainly try, but do them separately, if the 2nd get suspended, then be prepared to prove it is a totally separate business : Business Licence, Image of Signage etc etc
