Multiple locations but Same Phone Number

Hello,

 

Our company just opened a new location and this location is being shared by a separate business. We created a GMB account and are waiting to get verified. The address is the same as the other business we are sharing, with the exception of a suite number. The only issue is that we are sharing a phone number. I know this is normally not recommended. However my client does not want to get a separate phone number. The existing business is will be doing smaller jobs while the new business will be doing the larger jobs. They are both auto glass repair companies. What would be the best thing to do in this case? 

 

Thank you,

Itzel

I don't believe your client can get it the way he is thinking.

GoogleMyBusiness will consider the new listing as spammy duplicate of the existent due to  the same address and phone number.
