Google Map Marker is 0.8 Miles Away

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

The marker location for our Garage (Wrexham MOT Centre) is showing up at a competitor's Garage which is 0.7 Miles away. Consequently the map/directions and street view images are wrong.

 

Our business location is
Wrexham MOT Centre.
The correct business address is
Unit 2 Puleston industrial Estate, Ruabon Road, Wrexham LL13 7RF and
our telephone number is
01978 314151.
The maps URL is
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Wrexham+MOT+Centre/@53.0618653,-3.0657753,12z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!...

 

Many Thanks in advance for any help you can offer in getting this marker corrected.

@Wrexham T

 

this doesn't make any sense fro me as the marker for oyur business is less the ten yards for the marker for the coordinates you mentioned

Please compare the markers on this two maps:

https://goo.gl/maps/riRx2smh1SB2 (coordinates 53.036962, -3.008860)

https://goo.gl/maps/bVz6jGDvmkP2 (your business marker for "Wrexham MOT Centre") 

You instead mentioned the business maker 0.8 miles away from the real location - its pretty confusing.

Please elaborate this discrepancy

Is it at 53.037423, -3.009265 ?

 

Please clarify

From looking at Google Maps, and right-clicking the parking lot which is directly outside our building and clicking "What is here?", the co-ordinates we get are  53.036962, -3.008860

 

We would be happy with 53.036962, -3.008860 as our location.

 

Many Thanks

@Helmut Geissler

 

Thank you for looking into this for us.

 

I am happy to elaborate on the discrepancy.

 

The marker was previously showing outside a competitors business.

It would appear that the marker is now in the right place, however the street view is still 0.7 or 0.8 Miles away.

The competitors business where the incorrect street view is around about  53.042104, -2.998602

It looks like the marker is in the right place now but the street view is still 0.8 miles away.

 

Thank you for your help so far and hoping this is something you can resolve.

 

Please find attached a photo of the competitors Garage which is what Street View is showing to our customers.Street View IMAGE (MARUBBI).jpg

Dear Helmut,


Thank you for your help in resolving the incorrect data. 

A short time after you looked into this for us, the Map Marker, and shortly after, the Street View imagery is now correct.

 

Much Appreciated

 

Thanks
