Took over a business and re-branded but old business is still showing on Google Maps and Search

Hi there,

 

I took over a business, a children's soft play area in Warwick and have registered the business with Google (but not yet verified)

 

The previous business at the same location has completely shut down and I have rebranded and operate under a different name. I want to remove the old business from Google Maps and Search and show mine as the only business for this location.

 

How can I do this?

 

Thank you.

Hi @Malcolm B

I assume this is the new business you're talking about:
Little Monkeys Funhouse Warwick
01926 409 007

On the Facebook page though, I saw this address:

3 Cattel Road, Cape Industrial Estate, Warwick

And on the map on your website, I saw this address:
13 Cattell Road, Warwick, Warwick, CV34 4JN, United Kingdom

So... which address is it, and what's the old business you'd like to see removed? I didn't see any other businesses at either address.

While James looks for the other location, I wanted to provide you with a little more info on how Google may handle this rebranding and any associated reviews. https://support.google.com/business/troubleshooter/7001197?hl=en
