Trying to claim business, but concerned about creating a second G+ page

I am the owner of the property Forest Inn which is located at Thekkady

The property was earlier listed and verified  in google business by our earlier partner with whom we are no longer collaborating with anymore.

Now when i am trying to claim my business in google business, there are two options:

1. Verification code  to be sent to the registered mail id which was our former partners mail id and it doesnot exist anymore

2. To send code via google post card. I tried this option twice but i received the post card very late and the verification code was not accepted.


Request the concerned authority to kindly look into this issue and help us claim our business at the earliest possible.

please use again the postal path toget the PIN!


You are supposed to request the PIN to your physical address and then to wait:

If you have been waiting more then 14 days for a postcard then your best option would be to contact business support

I recommend getting in touch with GMB support via one of these options and ask for help in getting verified:
