Hello, this is my first time on the forum so i hope i do it right. Otherwise please tell me.

 

A few years ago i stopped with my business. My former company is stil visible at Google and Google maps. Because it is many years ago i don't have the account information anymore. Because of this i cannot remove the company.

 

Here is the link from maps: 

https://www.google.nl/maps/place/Papiermolen+67,+2906+RC+Capelle+aan+den+IJssel/@51.9398165,4.564580...

 

How can i remove the company? I searched for answers at the forum and for an contact of Google but could not find it. Please help.

 

Thanks for the help.

Is this the business name? 

Papiermolen 67

This is not a Google search result as there is no GmB style listing.

It looks like a point of interest in the Maps layer.

Hello, thank you for your reaction.
No this is not the business name.

The name is: Autorijschool Reinier de Vries

When i open Maps at the adres: Papiermolen 67 capelle aan den ijssel then
it shows the name. The strange thing is when i open the link in thus post
it is not visible. Wil you look for me in Maps with the adres here above?

Thank you.

When I repeat your search you gave

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Papiermolen+67+capelle+aan+den+ijssel&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=fir...

 

I see a Green arrow. That is a feature in Maps which has been set at some point, not a GmB driven thing.

 

Clicking on the arrow I do not see the business name.

 

As I said you need to click on 'suggest a change' at the bottom right of the map and ask for it to be removed by a Google Maps engineer. Mapmaker where us volunteers could make edits to maps suggestions, or anyone, has been removed due to misschief.
