Google My Business Ownership Conflict

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Good day, my name is Justin and I'm employed by Talisman Hire Witbank and Middelburg branches.


I'm trying to update and verify my business:


Name - Talisman Hire Emalahleni (Pty) Ltd

Address - 63 Watermeyer Street, Emalahleni, 1035


When trying to publish my business page, I get a "We're not showing this page because it's a duplicate of another" message. I've attempted to follow the, change of ownership, contact owner method without any reply or result a number of times without any success.


Any assistance with regard to this matter will be greatly appreciated

@Justin V


the message you get is pretty justified and reasonable as there is already a verified listing  for the business at this address:


You can't just try creating an other instance for th business at this address.


Instead apply "Someone else verified my business "

in order to get the control over the existent listing

i understand the message and reasoning behind it. However, I created both my business pages a few years ago and wasn't creating any new instances. Now I'm getting the conflict when I tried updating our profiles and saw my one page was unpublished.


Thank you for the reply, I'll follow the link you've provided and with any good fortune, will have this issue resolved. 


Thanks again!
