Another business is claiming my address- How do I remove?

My business address (Hopkins Tire & Auto Repair- 1045 S Lapeer Rd, Oxford, MI) is being claimed by another business (Trans Inc.). This business is not operating at my address and never has in the past. How do I report and have it removed? I would hate to confuse my customers. Thank you!

@Bryana H

Good news:

 

Google came back to me with the info the listing "Trans Shop"  was kind of glitch on their backend and have been fixed already


They ask you to keep an eye on it for couple of weeks to finally disappear at your address  (its already disappeared for me and for the Googler as I contacted regarding your issue.

Lemme know if you still have question about this.

Hi  @Bryana H

Presuming  you talking about this listing

 

Would you please mind providing few photos  of the addressso we have a good proof the "The Trans Shop Inc."  doesn't exist at your address?

 

Once I have such an obvious proof I will ask google to take it down.

Hi @Helmut Geissler

 

Thank you for your help!

 

I uploaded a number of photos here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/zlvopgc39n47mhn/AAD4VY18s7m1mg8P_fdeH0-ea?dl=0

 

It is a single tenant building and is clearly only occupied by my business. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you!

Hi, another business is claiming my address at 2010 E State Hwy 114 Southlake Tx 76092.  The old business moved out and Katie Parr Music Academy is my business which is occupying the space. How do I get the old business off my address and have my business show at this address?

First of all @Katie P

 

your business is shown at thd mentioned address:

Screenshot 2018-01-13 at 22.01.57.png

 

Means also the other one isn't "occupying your address"

 

But I agree you should report it as "permanently closed"at the mentioned addres.

YOU definetively can'tremove it.

Hi, I have the same problem. I have 2 business listings which are at the address; Braće Buchoffer 16 - 18. (Dive City & Apartments Domijan), but another business "Culo"-Culo-A2-4-Ullitravel˝ has placed their marker on my address; https://goo.gl/maps/fxkoBP7BTb82

 

Every tourist season we have a large number of guests coming to pester us about this other business which is actually located +/-100 m up the road. I have sent countless ˝Suggest an edit˝ requests to google maps but no change!

Please can someone advise me, or can google maps do something about this!

 

@Helmut Geissler Could you please help me also?...
