I am an electrical contractor. As a service area business I do not have any type of storefront. I had a listing on Apple Maps a few years ago, I’m not sure how it got there, maybe from Yelp. I contacted Apple about a small issue with my profile and they told me that I am not allowed to have a listing since I do not have a physical location. They took me off of Apple Maps completely.

It’s my understanding that other services use Apple Maps including when people are voice searching for an electrician. Is there anything that I could do about this?

Apple Business Connect does not have the feature to remove/hide the address. This has been posted on this forum before and confirmed SABs technically are not allowed to have Apple listings Apple Maps Connect - No Hide Address Option

So if you are a service area business with your address hidden on Google, you need to keep your address showing on Apple maps in order to keep the listing. Not idea I know but if you want to be on Apple you will need to show your address. Hopefully they fix this soon.

Oh, so I can put my profile back on Apple Maps as long as I show my address? I have no problem with that. I guess I just thought they would take me off anyway since I don’t have a storefront.
 
Apple Maps won’t remove you if you don’t have a store front business.
This is what they sent me. The third paragraph was the killer:

Just as an update, since I made this thread and Apple removed my listing from Apple Maps, I switched my Google business profile to show my address and I also submitted a new request to put my business on Apple Maps with my address showing, but Apple still won’t do it.

I don’t know understand why other electrical contractors who work out of their home could have listings on Apple Maps but I can’t. I feel like I’m losing a lot of business.
