Getting Clobbered in Local Google Maps Rankings!

Hi there,

Our local rankings are absurdly low and I have no clue why, we rank decently high with organic search results but when it comes to google maps we tank. Here are some things I need help with:

1. How should I write out our address, we are currently on the 300th floor of the building at the address listed.

2. We are fully mobile, but will operating with solely a service area hurt our rank?

3. Should we have "Cleen Detailing - Mobile Car Detailing" as our title, or just put "Cleen Detailing"?

Anything else you can see were doing wrong would be great!
Full Business Name: Cleen Detailing
Current Business Address: 600, 515 Legget Drive Kanata, ON
Current Telephone Number: (613) 875 2536
Google Maps URL:,-75.9191147,17z/...

@Cleen D


as a mobile acting business you are not allowed to specify your address as you don't face your customers in person.

Your website tells me "We are a mobile car detailing service,  meaning we come to you, wherever you are" 

This means you have to change your listing to a service area business with hidden address.

Do this according this HC article:

@Helmut Geissler,

We actually do service the odd customer at the business address, so I have it set up as a service area that also services at the address, is that wrong?
