Remove a business that is not mine

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

I'm an independant dancing teacher that teaches in various places.

I do not own any building, just renting theses places.

I would like to be located on these buildings but I don't want to own anything.

I tried to set it up my business above another dance school and now it looks like I'm owning their info on Google +.

How can we just remove info without transferring or deleting business from google maps?

 

Thanks for your help.

Kind Regards,

Anthony

Hi @Anthony B, to make sure I understand before advising, can you clarify where your physical, or registered business address is? 

Do you teach at various locations, but technically use your home address?

Hi Colan,

Ideally I would like to avoid to have my home address showing on Google
Maps.
But yes that's right, I teach in various locations but my registered
address for Tax is my home address.

Thanks

Hi @Anthony B, you can hide your address and set a service area. Find out more here https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038163

 

Use your home address if that is the business address.

 

Let me know if you have more questions.

This is brilliant. Thanks Colan for your help and support.
Last question if I may, how do I delete the locations from my "All
locations" menu?
Now I've updated my business, it's fine however, the other school I need to
remove them as I don't manage their business.

Kindest Regards and thank you again.
Anthony

Hi @Anthony B, I would suggest transferring ownership of the other page if you know who the business owner is. 

 

How were you able to owner verify the other page if you are not the business owner? Are you sure that it is an owner verified page that's in your dashboard? If you can post a link to the live page's URL I can check it out for you.

 

Thanks
