Google My business listings for Service Area Businesses are having an issue with the change of address when you move location.

If you are a service area business, you should not change your address right now. Update only the service areas field.

What it is happening is that the business address change will not work and the listing may start to appear in another town/state/county in Google Maps, with no relation to your service areas.

Update 16 September 2020:


  1. Add your address back: go to Info Tab » Address field » Add back your address
  2. Listing probably will get suspended » Ask for reinstatement and explain the situation

Google is aware and working on fixing this issue.
