Barry Perrin Interiors and Lighting is the business name

119 Longfields Ongar

On google maps at: Barry Perrin



Situation history:


Client not getting the service he required by original host but wanted to keep existing email. However client paying original host for a business gmail account and had linked google business to this account.


Client got really fedup with inaction and approached me to provide hosting/email services.  Domain name pointed at new website, but google still has the same email address as the current email hosted on my servers. 

Email transferred over, eventually but now trying to transfer the google my business, is causing a big headache.
