Remove Map pin of relocated business I don't own

We have a neighboring property that a competing business use to rent and occupy. The business relocated over 5-years ago.


Google maps still shows the relocated business's pin and information next ours and occasionally covers our pin. Can anyone help me resolve this?


I have the old neighboring business's new location and personally know the owner that can verify they relocated..
