Same business, new name and new location. Will reviews disappear?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am changing locations and business name but the business and employees will be the same. Will my good reviews be lost or maintained? Is there a way of making the address and name changes without losing my reviews? I don't want to start over with my online reputation and presence. Thanks for the help

Hi @Jason Q

 

Just Change the name and address of your current business page.

 

You will need to re verify, so make sure you only do it once you have actually moved to the new premises.

 

Make sure your website also has updated name and address.
